Davao City: Francisco Bangoy International Airport

DAVAO CITY, Davao del Sur - Touchdown 1:50pm. After a 1 hour and 50 minutes of flight, we finally arrived at Davao International Airport (officially called Francisco Bangoy International Airport) our 15th airport destination in the Philippines and 3rd in Mindanao. This was so far our longest flight within the Philippines.

We were very excited to reach Davao as this was our first visit to this city, considered as the international gateway to Mindanao and as the domestic gateway to southern Mindanao.

The Durian

First time visitors flying in to Davao City should not miss The Durian, a sculpture created by the famous Davaoeño artist, Kublai Millan. It is located along the driveway of the airport terminal's parking lot. Coming from the terminal building, it is located on the left side.

Zooz Wooz Café

Not having had lunch before the flight, we quickly searched for a restaurant as soon as we left the terminal building. Zooz Wooz Café is located right beside the taxi line. The restaurant serves coffee, sandwiches, pasta and all-day breakfast. We tried their breakfast meal (Php150.00) which already came with a drink (choice between iced tea or brewed coffee). Though food was on the expensive range, you get the value out of your money. Breakfast was delish, brewed coffee was perfect.
