Getting there

Direct flights or non stop buses will not work here. You have to transfer to at least 2 or 3 mode of tranpo just to get there. From General Santos city take the yellow bus to Marbel (Koronadal City). Then from Marbel , another yellow bus to Surallah. From Surallah, jeepney or van to Lake Sebu.. 4 hours travel time on the average..

But is it worth the hassle? It really depends. For me it was alright but definitely I will go back to Lake Sebu. (not because of the place, but because of shopping).

Shopping. At Lake Sebu, they sell tinalak. Its a hand woven fabric that has a signature pattern. But that is not what interest me. It was the bracelet, earrings and necklace that are made of seeds at give away prices. You will see women and children make this lovely jewelry in the side streets or in the comforts of this home. It is one place where I was ashamed to bargain. Because the prices are very low and they would still give you something extra. How generous is that?
