G's Davao Travel Review : Visiting Mindanao

My husband, my son and I went to Davao sometime in February 2012 to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary. It was a nice 6-day trip, though were not able to visit most of the attractions Davao has to offer because we also consider how tiring it would be for my 1.5 year old son.

Davao is located south of the Philippines, in the region of Mindanao with approximately 590 miles away from Manila. Davao is also the largest city in Mindanao. Davao City is typhoon-free and the people enjoy a balmy weather all throughout the year. Common mode of transportation is by jeepneys, taxis, buses and tricycles. Davao also has its international airport named Francisco Bangoy International Airport that connects to major cities not only in the Philippines but also in some Asian Countries

Where to go in Davao? Well, most of the attractions here were parks with wild animals, like the famous Philippine Eagle and Crocodile Farm. These 2 attractions houses different animals too, like birds, tigers and fishes. Eden Garden and GAP Farm are some of the nice place to go if you like go nature tripping. You can visit D'Leonor Zip Line if you're looking for some adrenaline rush. Find a relaxing stay at the beach when you visit Samal Island where there’s a lot of resort you can find. Looking for souvenir shops? Visit the city and go to Aldivinco. Also try visiting the People's Park, some museums and China Town which is almost alike Manila's China Town.

Details of my trip will be posted on my next blog.
