Marfel's Lodge opened last 2013. Though relatively new, the lodge has already opened two more branches in Basco, Batanes' capital.
Marfel's Lodge Annex Palangud, along Nat'l highway, Basco, Batanes
I stayed in one of the extensions. For me, this is the 'most homey' of the three. It is secluded and has easy access to the national highway. The Welcome Basco sign is just five pedals away (Okay, maybe it's thirty)!
Marfel's Lodge has adopted the Honesty Cafe's policy. They set-up a mini Honesty Store wherein you can just get what you need, write it down and pay for it in the cash box. Honesty is the policy here in Batanes. : ))
What to see in General Santos City? General Santos City or GenSan for short, is not the kind of place a regular tourist will have in mind. But for a traveler like me, even though GenSan lacks the usual tourist destinations, it is still a notable place to explore and stay in. This thriving city found on the shores of South Cotabato is famous for its annual Tuna Festival. What's more interesting is we always hear its name being brought up in the media every time our Pambansang Kamao Manny Pacquiao has a fight for he hails from here.
