The long bus ride through the mountains of Compostela Valley left me pooped and longing for a bed to sleep in. The bed I found was at the fourth floor of:
108-3 CM Recto Avenue, Davao City
(082) 227 8152 / 0932 466 2802
Room rates: Php 600 to Php 1150
Let's go over the pros and con:
☺ Accessible location. Jeepneys pass the area.
☺ Clean room and toilet and bath.
☺ WiFi available...
☹ ...but only at the third floor, at the stairwell. (This is the only con I can think of.)
Museo Dabawenyo is a small museum with six galleries full of photos and words! This museum tells about Davao, its history, and its people (the ten ethno-linguistic groups).
If you're too lazy to read (there's a mountain of information to absorb), then skip this place. If not, put your nerd glasses on and go!
Corner A Pichon and CM Recto Streets, Davao City
(082) 222 6011
Monday to Fridays 9AM–6PM
No cameras allowed in the museum. Bags, too, are not allowed inside, and should be left at the package counter.
