Our Davao weekend Escapade, 3 days is not enough to experience the attractions and activities. Davao City has many activities  to offer so I suggest 5 days  much better to explore the place.

Like us we included Samal Island on our itinerary since we are in Davao , most travelers often make it a point to visit Samal Island to maximize their vacation in Davao.

Being an employee with limited leaves and have toddler to travel is sucks, but for me and my husband we always make things possible for our passion to travel even for limited time.

From the Airport we took taxi Going to Sasa Wharf or local called it “onse”, ride Barge going to Samal Island . We spent overnight at Samal Island.

And after Samal Island , we go to recreational activities at Eden Nature Park and stay there until 3pm on our second day. After Eden we go back to City we stay at RED Planet Hotel.

Last halfday in Davao we reserved for City Tour and Pasalubong shopping. we try fresh delicious durian instead of bring it in the hotel , we ate durian as much as we can at Bangkerohan Public Market. guest are not allowed to bring durian inside the hotel.

I was Surprise of the high prices of mangosteen Php 500.00 per kilo, durian 100.00per kilo, Pomelo 600 per box 9 pcs.

before flying back to Manila on the next day .on our last night we decided to have dinner at  Jack Ridges and drop by at People’s Park it is open to the public for free lots of security in the entrance of the park.

Jack Ridges one popular destination when it comes to dining and recreation. great place to dine with family and friends, their in-house singers serenade you while you are eating , I love the panoramic view of the city light its so relaxing while we are having dinner , during the night it’s a great spot to chill similar to Antipolo.

Davao is safe to travel  ,most discipline and progressive. The city was cleaner than Manila  and it felt safe to walk around people are very kind and accommodating. even some are hard to speak tagalog.

Unfortunately we skipped Philippine Eagle and Crocodile farm on this trip because we don’t had enough time may be next time . our trip was hectic.

 thank for dropping  !!!
