After checking in at the Green Ridge Apartelle, I headed back to the highway and rode in a jeepney to two of the hidden spots in Malaybalay, the Nasuli Cold Spring and Matin-aw Cold Spring (photos above). A habal-habal is needed to visit these spots because they are located in a remote area on an adjacent location. Visitors can enjoy the cool, fresh and relaxing ambiance in the area. Plus, you cam make tampisaw into the crystal clear waters.

The Green Ridge Apartelle is near the capitol compound, so early in the morning, using Google Map, had my walking tour at the capitol building and to Kaamulan Park and Zoo where I met the animals that I usually see online and on TV. The area is surrounded with greens, the breeze is cool and the air is fresh and the landscape is instagrammable. By the way, the perfect time to visit Kaamulan Park and Zoo is in the morning and entrance fee is free.

From Green Ridge Apartelle, still using Google Maps, I walked on the streets to the bus terminal where I rode in a bus to Davao City (Ecoland Terminal). Malaybalay is highly urbanized, so no need to worry about transportation and places to stay. The people are friendly and good in providing instructions.
