Pearl Farm

Manila is to Luzon, Cebu is to Visayas and Davao is to Mindanao. Now, you've just enumerated the key cities in the 3 major island groups in the Philippines. Davao is also an international hub and can be reached conveniently through Philippine Airlines or Singapore Airlines' Silk Air.

Nature trippers will enjoy Davao because of its lush flora and fauna. An alternative to Davao is Palawan, still in Luzon but a plane ride away.

I was a little wary of visiting our Davao offices because of unrest in Mindanao but somebody has to do it. Now, allow me to take it easy and sample pomelo in the 3-tiered clubhouse of Pearl Farm. I'll pass on the durian, thank you. Be good to yourself and have yourself pampered here!

Venture to Calinan (Malagos Garden and Phil Eagle Research - pls. see my related tip) and you'd be lost in a world of crickets, tall trees, orchids, anthuriums, Philippine eagles, birds and butterflies !

I brought home those vibrant red anthuriums and people at the airport kept pinching those flowers, thinking they're made of plastic. Ouch!

    I would not recommend this place to anybody who is conscious of food safety and cleanliness. Saw mice as big as cats. The place smells / stinks as the sea breeze brings with it the smell from the nearby squatter's area.
