It was Day 3 of our Davao Highlands to Islands Adventure trip. and we are scheduled to cross the sea and go to Paradise Island Beach Resort in the Island Garden City of Samal!
Before leaving, I had pandesal and an assorment of cheeses on my plate for breakfast paired with tea latte. Perfect way to start the day. Not too heavy but good enough to keep me moving.
It was the Second day of our Davao Adventure and there’s no stopping us from going out and explore this great city.
First order of the day was buffet breakfast at Cafe Marco.
Since time immemorial Davao has been actively promoting its destinations with the tagline “From Highlands to Islands”. I think it was way back 2005/6 when I first learned of this tagline during the Wow Philippines days in Intramuros.
And just a few weeks ago, I was lucky enough to have been invited by Marco Polo Davao to explore Davao, from Highlands to Islands, the Marco Polo Way.
Every month of August, Davao City holds the annual celebration of the Kadayawan sa Dabaw Festival 2013.
The name Kadayawan came from the traditional Dabawenyo greeting “Madayaw” The festival is a celebration of life, and thanksgiving for the bountiful harvest.
