Davao Philippines’Cavendish Bananas is known deliciously sweet.

  • Philippine is now the 2nd Largest Exporter of Bananas in the world.
  • The majority of these shipments are destined for the growing regional markets of China, the Middle East and, to a lesser extent, Russia to satisfy their demand for fresh produce
  • Exports of Philippine bananas for the last quarter of this year are expected to rise following China’s lifting of restrictions on Philippine exports early this month.
  • Below are the 15 countries that accounted for the highest dollar value worth of bananas exported from the Philippines during 2015:
  1. Japan: US$176.9 million (40.2% of total bananas imports)
  2. China: $109.2 million (24.8%)

  • Among the above countries, the fastest-growing consumers of Philippine bananas exports since 2011 were: Bahrain (up 822.2% in value), Saudi Arabia (up 638.1%), Malaysia (up 312.3%) and Kuwait (up 195.4%).Production system ranges from backyard to highly integrated operation with the latter catering to the export market.
  • Weak demand in the EU.
  • Total import of fruit by the Philippines from 2008 till 2013. The highest volume of imports occurred in 2012 reaching 240,477MT while the lowest was in 2008 to 187,265MT. The average annual growth rate was 3.68% during this time period.
  • Philippine farms produced a total of 8.65m tonnes of bananas valued at P117.15bn ($2.6bn) in 2013, down from a peak of 9.23m tonnes worth P108.13bn ($2.4bn) the previous year, according to PSA data. Concerted efforts over the past two decades to expand banana production have led to the commodity becoming the country’s most valuable crop as well as its most profitable agricultural export.
  • The past years, the yield dramatically been reduced due to destruction brought about by the strong typhoons that hit the country particularly the major producing areas in Mindanao. Another calamity was the most recent “El Nino.”  Nevertheless, these are not typical and Mindanao is not a typhoon belt.
  • Overall, the average annual growth rate was 0.26% and 16%, respectively for production and area for the six-year time period.
  • The farms are generally small in size (1-5 ha) with minimal care resulting to low yield.
  • Big farms are typically managed by Cooperatives, Organizations and Investment Companies

Walking in the Clouds

This is one area in the Philippines where at times you will literally walk in the clouds.

I have been to Tagaytay City Philippines and knew of its breathtaking view since I was a kid.  But it was only recently that I realize that there is more to Tagaytay than its view…

  • Low cost of living
  • Near to farms and plantations so food harvest are fresh
  • Very accessible and near to Metro Manila
  • Only minutes away from Hospitals,  Downtown Area, Taal Lake, Shopping Malls and other establishments
  • With Cool and Refreshing Climate
  • Police Stations are within reach (within reach and easy to contact)
  • There is a Fire Station
  • Domestic and International Airports is more or less 1 hour away
  • Healthy Living
  • Perfect for Retirees and migrant tourist
  • Fruits, Meat and Vegetables are abundant
  • People are friendly
  • Tourist destinations are every where
  • Has Zoo, Horse-back riding, Park and Nature Appreciation Sites
  • Urban living in a rural environment is possible
  • Others

I actually grew up in the urban Metro Manila until finished college and work in a corporate company.  I thought, I will settle there because I am now in this beautiful City of Tagaytay.

Who would have thought that I will get married in this special place and settled for good?  I even have achieved one of the most inexpensive wedding yet a bit elegant.  But my wedding was just one thing.  Settling in Tagaytay is another and I was glad we settled here.  Why?  I think it will better if you yourself visit and observe why many are migrating here now a days and settle for good.  A number of them are Tourist and Overseas Filipino/Contract Workets (OFW/OCW).  Many are retirees (foreign and locals).

Let me show you some photos of one of the most desired residential subdivision in Tagaytay:

IT IS CALLED CROSSWINDS TAGAYTAY

What’s Your Top Beaches?

I saw a site wherein Top 10 Beaches are named as the best in the world.  

  1. Clifton Beach, Capetown, South Africa
  2. Pink Sands Beach, Harbor Island, the Bahamas
  3. Larvotto Beach, Monte Carlo, Monaco
  4. Poipu Beach, Kauai, Hawaii
  5. South Beach, Miami, Florida
  6. Paradise Beach, Mykonos, Greece
  7. Ipanema Beach, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil
  8. Surfers Paradise, Queensland, Australia
  9. Maroma Beach, Yucatan, Mexico
  10. Anse Source D’Argent, La Digue, Seychelles 

As I read and view the photos, the beaches seem nice.  I just wonder why not even one beach from South East Asia was chosen.  

Philippines is now considered by renowned marine scientist as the “Center of the Center” for marine biodiversity.  How in a world Philippines became the center of the center yet not one of its beaches is not included even on the least of the top 10?  I ask because the beaches are the main issue here.  Isn’t it that the word “beach” pertains primarily to the body of water and the natural formations and living organism underneath?  Isn’t it the second focus is the natural formation of land and sand above sea level?   

Let me show you some of Philippines’ beaches.  Better if you visit them yourself to experience real paradise. 

Check and compare yourself…

You ain’t seen nothin yet!

Visit the Philippines  beaches and you won’t believe what you will see!            To see is to believe!

You may be disappointed with Philippines’s infrustructure upon your arrival as it is not as developed compared to other countries.  But the experience is worth the trip.  Philippine world class beaches are truly awesome beyond words to express.    They are literally paradise.
