Have you thought of where you want to be when you retire?
While it may be too early to think about your retirement in full detail, it’s often good to have some idea already.
Thus, consider Bukidnon.
This paradise in Northern Mindanao is often overlooked when it comes to popular spots in the Philippines.
However, here are four reasons why Bukidnon is a retirement haven:
Bukidnon is a plateau, which stands at an elevation of 915 meters above sea level.
As such, the temperatures in this province can go as low as 18 degrees on some days of the year.
Compared to other cities in the Philippines, this weather would be like walking inside a fridge!
There would be no need for air conditioning units inside your house. (And thus, reduced electricity bills. Yay!)
Overall, Bukidnon is cool all year round.
On the topic of weather and climate, typhoons rarely pass by Bukidnon.
Bukidnon is surrounded by tall mountains that help shield the province from strong winds and torrential rains.
Apart from that, the region is outside the Philippine “Typhoon Belt,” unlike the rest of the country that’s buffeted by monsoons from June to November,
Tsunamis are not much of a threat either, considering that the province is landlocked.
Still, why is any of this important?
As you know, typhoons and floods are a longstanding issue in the Philippines. And each year, these natural disasters cost billions in damages. Not to mention, countless loss of lives.
Thus, living in Bukidnon will potentially protect you, your loved ones, and your properties from potential demise and destruction.
Food Basket of Mindanao
Bukidnon is the province also known as the “Food Basket of Mindanao.”
It is no surprise since the province is rich in natural resources. You can have fresh produce right at your fingertips.
What’s more, you can also opt to plant organic vegetables and fruits right in your backyard.
Fun Fact of the Day: Did you know that there is a famous pineapple plantation in Bukidnon?
Del Monte, which is a huge corporation, has over 9000 hectares of land for their pineapple plantation.
This enormous farm is also open to the public for viewing, which can be fun for a day trip.
Again, Bukidnon is blessed with majestic views of the environment.
You can virtually travel anywhere in the province and enjoy the sprawling scenery.
There are also many outdoor activities, like going to the Dahilayan Adventure Park and Pine Forest or Kaamulan Nature Park.
You can also spend some time in the Monastery of Transfiguration if you are looking for a bit of peace.
Or, you can take on the challenge of climbing the mountains in Bukidnon, namely, Mt. Kitanglad and Mt. Dulang-dulang.
Lastly, you can relax in the refreshing waters of the Ultrawinds Mountain Resort. It is a fancy place where you can dine and enjoy scenic views and its infinity pool.
Overall, Bukidnon has a lot to offer—from fantastic vistas to all-natural produce. With all these, it won’t be too bad to retire in Bukidnon.
