Best of SOCCSKSARGEN

Best of Region 12

SOCCSKSARGEN is a region of the Philippines, located in central Mindanao, and is officially designated as Region XII. The name is an acronym that stands for the region’s four provinces and one of its cities: South Cotabato, Cotabato, Sultan Kudarat, Sarangani and General Santos City. The regional center is Koronadal City located in the province of South Cotabato. Cotabato City itself is part of SOCCSKSARGEN, but Maguindanao is part of the Autonomous Region in Muslim Mindanao.

Fruit Buffet in Maitum Sarangani Durian, Mangosteen, Marang, Rambutan, Lansones, Pinya

  1. Maitum Fruit Paradise = Fruit season almost all year round. Ilocanos from La Union in Luzon migrated to Mindanao and spread the culture of agriculture. Now I think Maitum is the 2nd fruit paradise of the Philippines next to Kidapawan.
