Pit Stop: Aveflor Inn and Museo Dabawenyo

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:

Aveflor Inn
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
I didn't plan anything for Davao, and when there is no plan, I send an SOS (Seeking fOr Suggestions) to local friends. Of the long list of suggestions, I only picked two: Museo Dabawenyo, because I like museums, and Marina Tuna, because I like food.

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!

Museo Dabawenyo
Corner A Pichon and CM Recto Streets, Davao City
(082) 222 6011
Monday to Fridays 9AM–6PM
Free admission

No cameras allowed in the museum. Bags, too, are not allowed inside, and should be left at the package counter.
