Recently I’ve been to Davao City for three Days. YES, three days was good enough to unwind while working because this Trip was intended for WORK, I traveled with my superior’s, our company President and Project manager for a courtesy calls of our upcoming event the so called “AGRILINK/FOODLINK/AQUALINK” to Region XI: Department of Agriculture and to the different councils in terms of Crop production.
Let me share first our experienced before our main course to this trip. I woke up around 3:00 am to prepare myself and rechecking my bag and working tools such as pen, journal, recording and camera even though those were prepared already the night before, but I have to secured again (mahirap na mabulalyaso hehehe). And I arrived to departure area of NAIA Terminal 2 at 4:30 am via UBER.
Our airport breakfast:
From a Singaporean Restaurant, it’s a combo meal for breaky at Ya Kun Kaya Toast.
Boarding exactly 6:30 am and we arrived Davao City at 8:30 am.
Then we rode a taxi going to our hotel, it’s The Pinnacle Hotel&Suites. The hotel is rated for 3 – 4 star with 214 guestrooms with refrigerator, free toiletries, daily housekeeping, laundry facilities, large area of breakfast, a lobby area for guest and for coffee/tea, Free WiFi and free parking, Indoor pool, fitness center, 24 hour business center, 24 hour front desk assistance, airport shuttle, and a computer station. And also they offer for families too with children’s pool and rollaway/extra bed for additional charge.
Upon arriving the hotel the lady guard will greet you “Dayon po” which means welcome.
The hotel is located to Sta. Ana Avenue, Davao City. It is very convenient to the nearby places that the guest wants to look, walk around and discover Davao for a few hours. It is 5 minute walk to Gaisano mall, 12 minute walk to people’s park, 14 minute walk to Victoria Plaza, 17 minute to San Pedro Cathedral( sad wasn’t able to visit the church) and a 17 minute walk also to the monument of Peace and Unity (sorry don’t have any idea about this place. And I’ve notice the hotel is just a minute away to the Davao China town and a Chinese school.
At night time a lot of restaurants also for you to dine with your meetings and family reunions. We chooses to visit JACK RIDGE for our first night which is JACK RIDGE is one of those recommended by the local, you can sight the view of Davao while you’re at the place, witnessing the lights with different colors and group of people who were enjoying their dinner. And that was may second time to visit Jack ridge but my first visit was day time and a very quick stroll.
Our dinning bond with my superior’s and some people who made their dinner yummilicious and unforgetable!!! Lot’s of photo’s with selfies and groupies. hahaha
The Jack Ridge will closed around 10:30 to 11:00 in the evening.
And that was our first day and night behind the Work.
