Davao: Life Is Indeed Here

Davao: Life Is Indeed Here

After visiting General Santos City and Lake Sebu of South Cotabato, my friend and I spent the next two days in Davao City. It was my first time here. But due to lack of time, we only get to visit the town proper and a nearby resort in the island of Samal. I will definitely pay Davao City another visit again so I could explore all it has to offer. For the meantime, our friend and host Glen toured us around with what our limited time offered us.  

UP Mindanao

St. Peter Church

Davao City Hall

We spent the next morning beach-bumming at the nearby Costa Pacifica Resort in Samal Island. I was happy when Glen told us that we were already in Davao del Norte by just crossing the waters after 15 minutes. Yahoo! Another province off my bucket-list.Our first afternoon was spent visiting UP Mindanao, St. Peter Church and Davao City Hall. I got giddy when I saw a Mamang Sorbetero (dirty ice cream vendor) who was poised across the church. I made tikim (taste) the Durian-flavored ice-cream for only Php 10.

Costa Marina Beach Resort

It is advisable to visit the island during weekday. Aside from a small family, we had the beach all to ourselves. The weather was perfect and the waters cool to the skin. I swam happily. The mermaid has conquered another beach! 

After six hours under the sun, we headed back to the city and had our last meal together at Lachi’s.
