naghahanap din kami ng kasabay for water rafting kasi weekday yun sched namin (December 14) tas dalawa lang kami. i've contacted Davao Wild Water Adventure and they said they will check if they can fit us pa with other group.

^ sis contact DWA thru their FB page. they never answer kasi their email and yun contact page sa website nila.

kami we're considering Camp Sabro's zipline. kasi it's the 2nd longest zip line sa pinas and has amazing view of Mt. Apo :D downside lang eh sobrang layo.

Just got back from Davao.  During the trip, my friends and I stayed at Green Windows Dormitel.  I highly recommend this place kasi bago pa lang tapos ang ganda at linis ng room at bathroom nila.  May hot and cold shower pa tapos may libreng newspaper on a Sunday.  Very accommodating then ang staff then yung location is so accessible.
Davao is tahimik at malinis ang lugar nila. You seldom see any trash in the street.  We went to some tourist spots and I was disappointed with the statue of David at the Times Beach because it is not used to be as what I have seen in the photos. Napabayaan na ang lugar at hindi na siya maiiconsider na tourist attraction. 

About Lachi's I think yung specialty nila which is unforgettable pork ribs, is overrated.  Kasi nothing special sa dish na iyon tapos wala pang side dish tapos yung iba may side dish.  When we asked if mayroon bang side dish they just simply told us na naubos na.  Pero ang nagustohan ko sa Lachi's is their sweets. Masarap ang 5-chocolate torte at dulce de leche cheesecake.  Yung ulam nila, nothing special.

On our last stay in Davao, we went to Isla Reta Beach. Fine din ang sand at crystal clear ang water.  We enjoyed swimming at Isla Reta kasi wala masyadong tao tapos ang tahimik.  It seems like we own the resort. 

In addition pala, if gusto niyo gumimik to some of Davao's sikat bars like Hybrid and Starr, wag kayo pumunta on a Sunday kasi close. :D  All in all, I left my heart in Davao.  Wish I can visit the place again.
