Around Davao City

Day 4 of our Davao Trip

A brief recap:
Day 1: Camp Sabros at Digos City (about 50 kilometers from Davao City)

Day 2 and 3: Samal Island: ( Chemas by the Sea and Hagimit Falls )

Coming from Samal Island we took a bus (that will be ferried by a barge ) to Davao City. We tried checking in at the Ponce Suites as it was recommended by a friend and popular for its art exhibits displayed all over the lobby of the place, but upon arriving there we found out that its already fullybooked so we settled to a nearby cheap hotel.

After having a fine cabin at Camp Sabros with a wonderful view of Mt. Apo and an equally nice accomodation at Samal Island, our room here offers a view of *drum roll* hollow blocks. Yes, the window was blocked by a cement wall, well we can’t complain as we can only afford budget rooms this part of our trip.

Upon arriving we had a hearty late lunch at Ahfat (a Chinese Seafood Restaurant), after that we just walked around the vicinity and prepared for our last day in Davao the next day (which we eventually spent River Rafting at the Davao River).

The next day we went to crocodile Park where the orientation of those who will join the River Rafting takes place.

During the night we dropped by Aldevinco shopping center, famous for its rows of souvernir, handicraft and antique stores, to buy some “Pasalubongs” and souvernir items.

Afterward, we went to Jack’s Ridge, a place set up high that offers a view of Davao City. It has many restaurants and kind of reminds you of Antipolo and Tagaytay. We had dinner with Kat (who, i first met online in Multiply) and her friends.

It was a great 5 days spent at Davao province, seems like there’s more to do but very little time. Hope I can get back soon and try to visit the places i missed next time.
