Davao Travel Tips: Things To Do, Places To See, Where To Eat: Davao City, Philippines

 

The Philippines has over 7,100 islands; and, thanks to Cebu Pacific Air, it’s time every Juan flies to explore the beauty and wonder of   this country. Moreover, traveling smart is made easy with Agoda.Com, where the lowest hotel prices can be found.

Cebu Pacific Air + Agoda.Com = “smart and budget-friendly vacation”

 

Our trip destination: DAVAO CITY

Thanks to smart booking and planning ahead, we were able to save a lot from the airfare and hotel bookings. Result: more budget to splurge on food and activities. Woohoo!

 

Davao Travel Tips: Things To Do, Places To See, Where To Eat:

 

Davao Travel Tip #1 – What To Do in Davao: Eat Durian.

Durian season in Davao usually starts around August (month of Kadayawan Festival) till October. Best way to enjoy this delectable treat is to stop by any street vendor (they’re everywhere), ask them to open your preferred variety of choice (I suggest Cob Yellow or Puyat for beginners), and eat it with your bare hands. *finger-lickin’ good*

Price can go as low as Php 25/kilo during Durian season.

 

Davao Travel Tip #2 – Where to eat in Davao: Dine at the No. 1 Barbeque House in Davao: Penong’s BarBESTque

Even before the chicken barbeque craze with unli-rice hit Manila, Davao has already been enjoying this at Penong’s. I love their food but what I liked and missed the most is the bagaybay, tuna’s prized flavorful “balls”

Paradise Beach Resort is probably the nearest family-friendly beach in Davao City. Better come early to enjoy the clear blue water of the island. Also, ordering their best-selling paella is a must!

Tiny Kitchen (same owners as Paradise Beach Resort) is best known for their paellas, but if you want to try the best red velvet cheesecake ever, then better save room for dessert.
