culture. It is famous for Mt. Apo, the country's highest
peak (3,144 meters) and is home to the Philippine
Eagle. Precious hideaways are the Pearl Farm Beach
Resort, Malagos Garden Resort, Eden Mountain Resort

and other local spices). Locals and tourists dine
in restaurants located along beaches, hill tops, countryside
or right at the heart of the bustling metropolis.
