TIPS to make your Davao adventure cheaper AKA lessons from the trip:

1. Make use of Pearl Farm’s package tour. We didn’t, so we had to rent out the trike. Pearl Farm’s package tour includes a roundtrip ferry to and from Sta. Ana wharf.

2. There are few food choices in Kaputian. You may opt to bring your own food and have the staff where you’re staying cook it for you at minimal fee or scout for nearby carinderias. We were too tired and hungry when we arrived at Red Parrot Inn so we ended up having a meal worth more than Php600!

3. I thought staying in different hotels would’ve saved us travel time. Maybe it did but it also cost us. A  better itinerary would’ve been:

Day1: Davao City Tour (find an accommodation near the wharfs)

Day2: Pearl Farm, GIant Clams (after arriving at Pearl Farm, have your contact for the Giant Clam meet you at the back door of Pearl Farm; go to the Giant Clams first so it is still low tide then just get back to Pearl Farm and enjoy it the rest of the day)

Day3: Samal island Tour (from farthest to nearest from Babak wharf) – Talicud Island, Kaputian Beach, Hagimit, Monfort Bat Cave, Vanishing Island

Davao Day 3: Food Trip

We dropped all our planned activities for today and went straight to the city after our free breakfast at Samal Island Huts.

2013-10-16 07.51.04 2013-10-16 07.51.17

How to go to Davao city from Samal island:

1. take a trike to Babak wharf

2. Ride a ferry from Babak wharf to Sasa wharf

3. take a cab from Sasa wharf to anywhere you need to be at Davao city

Lachi’s

In our case, we went straight to Lachi’s for our delicious lunch. We tried their durian cheesecake and durian sansrival (Php75). Prices are affordable and food was delicious!

Then we took a trike from Lachi’s to Blugre Cafe and drank our durian coffee (Php150).

Aldevinco and Bangkerohan

Then we went to Aldevinco and Bangkerohan for our pasalubong shopping. We took a jeep from Blugre Cafe to Aldevinco. We didn’t like to buy shawls or malongs so we decided to go to Bangkerohan instead. We rode a jeep to Bangkerohan from Aldevinco. Bangkerohan is like a market so stuff are cheap. We brought all our pasalubongs (durian – Php40/kilo; durian candies – Php100/6packs) there.

Accommodation: Domicilio Lorenzo

We were all sweaty and tired after buying pasalubong from Bangkerohan. We took a cab from there to Domicilio Lorenzo. It was creepily quiet there. The place looks too homey but was like a museum too. We enjoyed the pool there too. It was raining quite hard so we asked the staff to order our dinner from Jollibee and ate in our room. We prepared our stuff for tomorrow’s check out then went to sleep.

We planned to start with the farthest destination first, Talicud, Samal Island, then spend the last day in the city. We were to check in at 3 different hotels/inns to facilitate our activities in Samal Island and to be able to explore the island as well.

But, of course, things didn’t turn out the way we planned. A few days before our trip, we decided to take the Sasa wharf route instead of Sta. Ana wharf so we could start with our Talicud Island tour early. The boat ride from Sta. Ana wharf starts at around 9am or 10am which means that we’ll be at the Red Parrot Inn by 10am or 11am – too late for the tour according to our contact at Red Parrot who helped book our tour.

We also had to drop some activities because we were too tired from our tricycle (mis)adventures to and from Pearl Farm. This carried on til our last night in Davao thus, no city tour for us. -_-
