Experience the farm life in Davao City with this private tour around its best farms. This half-day excursion is perfect for backpackers looking for the quiet amidst the bustling city life of the Durian Capital of the Philippines.
Your tour begins once your driver picks you up at your hotel in Davao City. Once you’re all settled, you will make your way to the Orchid Farm, located in the southeastern section of the city. You will see the Mt. Apo summit on the way to this part of the countryside.
Growing a variety of orchids such as mokara, vanda, and phalaenopsis, the Orchid Farm never fails to amaze its visitors. You will be touring around the garden upon your arrival, all while some instrumental music is played in the background. You will be passing by their screened flower dome that includes the country’s national flower, Waling Waling.
Next, you’ll visit the Malagos Chocolate Museum. Here, you will be learning about the process of chocolate production and see the various artifacts used to create chocolate back in the days. They have interactive facilities, as well, that will make learning more fun for visitors. Buy the best cacao and chocolate products here before making your way to the Philippine Eagle Center, sitting only two kilometers from the museum.
The center features the national bird of the country, the Philippine Eagle. Due to the changes in their natural habitat, their species have become critically endangered, which is why an animal conservation place like the Philippine Eagle Center was created. There is a gift shop within the center, where guests can purchase souvenirs, and an audio-visual room, where guests can watch documentaries and educational videos about the Philippine Eagles.
From there, you will stop by the Davao’s Organic Farm, which promotes good health within the locals. They do not endorse synthetic fertilizers; instead, they promote the cultivation of organic herbs and vegetables. You will be taking your lunch first at a nearby restaurant then to the Dairy Farm to cap off your day. Have a quick photo-op here before you are taken back to your accommodation.
