11 May 2012  Been going around the Philippines all my life. Now I'm learning to do it with my kids.

My husband and I have been to Davao many times together. And he in fact lived there for about 8 months. When this time we came with our kids, we took them to places even we had never been before.

  • 1. Crocodile Park
    Crocodile Park, Davao City, Davao del Sur Province

    Great zoo! Lots of animals, and very educational.

  • 2. Butterly House, Davao City
    http://butterflyhouse.psdgroupph.com/

    Right near the Crocodile Park, the kids will love seeing real chrysalises and innumerable butterflies. When they're bored with that, they will enjoy playing in the play ground.

  • 3. Jack's Ridge
    Jack's Ridge, Davao City, Davao del Sur Province

    Nice place to take kids to dinner. The stairs are a bit of a climb but the view at night is worth it. Not to mention, they can run around on the grass of the amphitheater. And after all the climbing and running, they will surely enjoy a good dinner.

  • 4. Costa Marina Beach Resort, Samal Island
    http://www.costamarina.net/

    Perfect beach to spend the day with kids. warm shallow water, now waves, nice sand. Perfect beach to let your children play without fear. Added plus, if you manage to get the table under the big tree, you can swim in the sea AND be under the tree's shade. Plus, you can order lunch there and the food is great!

  • 5. Philippine Eagle Center
    Philippine Eagle Centre, Davao City, Davao del Sur Province

    Visit the famous Pag-asa , the first Philippine Eagle born and bred in captivity. And learn all about his cousins. The kids love seeing monkeys and interacting with the birds. They also loved feeding the fish. Support for the center, means support for the conservation of the endangered Philippine Eagle and its fast diminishing habitat.

  • 6. Malagos Garden Resort
    Malagos Garden Resort, Davao City, Davao del Sur Province

    Lunch here after visiting the Philippine Eagle Center. They are practically next door to each other. The food is excellent. And then you can spend the afternoon there, swimming, horseback riding, playing in the play ground, visiting the Butterfly Sanctuary and Museum. Lots of things for kids to do while enjoying nature.

  • 7. Matina Town Square
    Matina Town Square, Davao City, Davao del Sur Province

    Arrive in the early evening, so that the kids have time to play in the playground and then have dinner with them at the open air grills for an authentic Davao experience, or colorful air conditioned Keepsakes which the kids just loved. They serve rice meals and desserts. And I think they can do crafts if they want.

  • 8. Abreeza Mall
    Abreeza Mall, Davao City, Davao del Sur Province

    Do a bit of shopping in Abreeza Mall before heading home. You can deposit your kids at the Wonderland play area. Only P70 per kid per hour, it's like an indoor playground with lots of toys. And you can do your shopping peacefully. And then have family lunch at the Laguna Cafe (same as the one in Cebu) for excellent Filipino food.
