Davao City from Highlands to Lowlands

The largest city in the southern Philippines, there is plenty to keep visitors busy in Davao. Guests staying at Park Inn by Radisson Davao can discover the many wonders of the country’s “Durian Capital” with an itinerary that travels from the highlands to lowlands and takes in beaches, mountains, waterfalls, culture, cuisine and more.

Island hopping in a traditional “banca”

After breakfast, guests can travel to Santa Ana port for a morning of aquatic activities around Samal Island. Take a traditional “banca” fishing boat for amazing island hopping and snorkeling excursions, including popular spots such as Talicud Island, Angel’s Cove, Giant Clams Sanctuary and Wishing Island. Pure tropical bliss!

Aerial exhilaration in the mountains

After lunch, it’s time to head up to the mountains. Soak up the scenery on the 1.5-hour drive to Eden Nature Park, then enjoy an array of exhilarating aerial activities such as the Skycycle, Skyrider, Skywheel or Skyswing. Guests who prefer a slower pace can take a leisurely trek through the mountains and pine forests, or stroll around the sunflower garden and butterfly park. Before leaving, don’t forget to savor Aling Foping’s Halo Halo – a refreshing Filipino dessert of shaved ice topped with condiments like gulaman, sweetened banana and ube.

Authentic food with amazing views

As the day draws to a close, Jack’s Ridge Resort & Restaurant is a stunning spot for a sunset dinner with views of the glittering Davao cityscape. This authentic local retreat promises classical local cuisine, including a seafood barbecue, sinigang, kare kare (Filipino stews) and delicious desserts. Afterwards, discover the amazing artifacts on display, including the giant taklobo seashells that reflect that, millions of years ago, Davao was submerged by the sea.
