After filling up, we began our day's journey. Our very first destination was..
Eden Nature Park – This is the mountain resort found at the foot of mount Talomo almost 3,000 feet high above sea level. It is a 40 minute drive from our hotel in Mt. Apo Street in Davao City. We reached Eden Park at mid morning and people were already converging at the reception area. The park offers recreational activities like fishing, horseback riding, zip lining and swimming but didn’t try any of those time consuming activities.
Penong’s Barbecue and Seafood Grille Restaurant. We were told it’s one of the best in the city. I could say the food is really good especially their Chicken Inato. I like all the food listed in their menu and mind you, the prices are surprisingly low!
The Deca Wakeboard Park. It’s a serene place of massive lake not far from the greeneries of the mountain side. Located within the Deca Homes Residences, the place I think. is still an on-going project.
There wasn’t too many wake boarders at the time probably because it was already 3pm. That gave the big kiddos opporunity to enjoy the activity without queuing unlike in CWC. It was more than two hours of extreme physical exhaustion for these herd of mine but I saw the great satisfaction on their faces when we left the place. This wound up our first day of Davao tour. Then we were back to our hotel.
Green Windows Dormitel - The place is a hotel and a dormitory in one located in the 5th floor of FTC Towers in Mt. Apo Street. Room rates are very affordable so we booked for the spacious room which is the Executive Twin. It is only good for four hence, we needed additional bed when hubby arrived on the second day. It is well secured and is only stone’s throw away from nice restaurants. The dormitory type room with double deck beds are for only P188/pax. The place is relatively new and generally clean and well maintained. The service is likewise good. For our dinner that evening, we asked for listings of food deliveries from the reception area, dialled one and we had our food delivered in no time.
The first day high was over and we contentedly called it a day!
