Davao Day 4: Back to MNL

We left Domicilio Lorenzo around 8am so we could have enough time to have our breakfast at TAPS then travel to the airport.


Taps seem to be quite a common resto in Davao much like Blugre Cafe. Good thing there was a Taps (and Blugre Cafe) near Domicilio Lorenzo. We just walked going there upon checking out. Taps has different combinations of food with tapa as main viand.


Nothing special about their food except that they are quite affordable.

We walked for a few minutes from Taps then took a bus to the airport. That’s cheaper than taking a cab. The bus ride was around an hour. We had plenty of time to spare so it was fine. We waited for our flight then were back to MNL!

TIP: Durian fruit has to be checked-in. So if you plan on bringing home a durian fruit, might as well take a check-in service in your return flight from Davao when you buy your plane tickets. It’s cheaper than having I checked in on the day of your flight. Also, might as well bring more than 1kilo of durian.

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.

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


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.
