Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    One of the highlights of my trip to Davao City. Instead of taking a taxi or Grab, I decided to take a jeepney ride. Take a jeep to Calinan Transport Terminal and ride a van with label “CALINAN”. Travel time is approximately 1 hour. I asked the drover to drop me at Calinan Market and from there, I took a pedicab towards Philippine Eagle Center. My fare totaled to almost ₱300 instead of the ₱1,300++ if I took Grab.

    Take time to observe the birds and be respectful of the surroundings (no noise is allowed, no littering, no scaring the animals, etc.). Try to leave some tip as well as this will go to the management of the center. Don’t forget to bring some insect repellant. Mosquitoes are everywhere!

    The only thing that I didn’t like is the small enclosure of the majestic Philippine eagles. I wonder if they get depressed inside their very small and restrictive cages!

    After my visit, I went out to the highway and hailed a pedicab and headed nearby Malagos Garden Resort (fare is ₱30).

    From Malagos Resort, I went across the highway and took a pedicab towards Calinan. I asked the driver to drop me at “L300 or Taloda”. From there, just ride the van going to Roxas Night Market (just across Ateneo De Davao) for a sumptuous and cheap dinner.

    Great quality museum with really good and interesting skeletons of thousands of different animals and fish. Some taxidermy too. Fast paced clear and succinct guided tour included, after which you are free to browse.
    Best thing I have found in Davao City so far.....

    Just another SM Mall. A lot of choices for food. Not crowded and therefore it feels relaxing to walk around.
    Going to the place is a little bit of heavy traffic.

    I have been hearing about these tunnels for years. Drove past them so decided to go and take a look. Worth a visit. My wife a Filipino was very upset to see the conditions underground that Filipinos were made to work under. The staff were very friendly and the guide very good. Do not go if you are clostrophobic you have to duck your head in a few places.

    we took a short detour to visit this sacred place to say a fervent prayer.

    among all the cathedrals i've been to, this is one of the smallest. nevertheless, it doesn't diminish the fact that one can find solace and tranquility inside this Church.

    the altar is temporarily being reconstructed so a big tarpaulin depicting the actual altar is being used as a cover.

    we lit several candles on the side, giving thanks for all the blessings we've received.

    To begin with, the museum has moved to Juna Subdivision, near PWC. They will be here for next two years - according to the staff.

    This was my third attempt to visit the museum. First attempt in June failed, because they were not yet open at the new place. Second attempt in September failed because I went on Sunday, and it is closed on Sundays.

    There is no entry fee. The museum is very small - only 50 objects displayed. However it opens a window to Davao city and helps to understand the city better. It gave me leads on what I need to explore more.

    When I had some questions regarding the musical instruments, the young guide was available to answer it. There is an audio-visual (set of six or seven video clips) which is informative.

    Overall good experience. I hope they will expand.

    In the US I grew up on a diet of fine art museums, and grand quality museums found in NYC and Washington DC. In the Philippines, I have learned to dig a little deeper and broaden my knowledge to fulfil he same desire to learn about things. Museums like this are really quite interesting, detailing the history, crafts, and early peoples of the area. The exhibits are good quality and offer many beautiful decorative and functional objects. If you take a taxi, consider holding the taxi until you;re finished because the museum is set back some from the street and the area is not quite as urban as other parts of Davao.
