  • Red Jeepney

    Davao City occupies 2,444 sq. kms. It's a vast city comparing to other cities like Metro Manila (636 km²) or Singapore (707.1 km2). You need a private vehicle to criss-cross the city. Although there are public vehicles around like taxi and jeepney, still having a rented van or jeepney of your own will save you time and money. That's what I realized...

  • maligaya taxi

    Maligaya taxi drivers have done it again. For the past years they have been getting bad feedback from the commuting public even from the mayor himself. I feel it is just fair to warn the public about them. I have not 1 but 2 acquaintances both of whom recently had the misfortune of having encounters with these drivers. One had accidentally left...

  • TAXI CABS

    Taxi is the most convenient way of going around the city. Unlike the taxi drivers in manila who takes advantage, and won't give you the right change of your fare ,and even refuses to take you in unless on a fix rate contract, the taxi drivers here in Davao City gives you the right change, even if it is just 1 piso. There are two kinds of taxi here,...

  • Moving around Davao City

    Getting around Davao is so easy. There are cabs you can call to pick you up. There are plenty if you'ld like to just get a ride while waiting along the streets (incase you dont have a phone to use).Jeepneys are also abundant, having their own different routes. But if you are not familiar with the streets of the place, the cabs would be the most...

  • Davao City Land tour

    I am very lucky to find a taxi driver who gave a very good deal to tour around the city and some towns nearby. I just paid 1500 for one whole day. We visited Eden Nature Park, Philippine Eagle Center, Japanese Tunnel, Orchids store (dont know the name, sorry), Crocodile Park and Jack Ridge.

  • Taxi Alternatives

    A fun alternative to hiring a taxi will be instead hiring a tricycle. A tricycle is basically a motorcycle with a glorified sidecar that might hold up to six regular people as passengers. However, I have seen many more Filipino passengers riding in a tricycle but generally foreigners won't pack themselves like Filipinos do. The only problem with...

  • Taxis

    Think about chartering a taxi for the day. Many times, taxis will like to be rented for the whole day or an agreed-upon fee. Sometimes you can get a good rate like 1500 pesos/day. It seems to me that competition among taxis is very high. Therefore, keep this in mind while you're bargaining for the rental of a taxi all day. Some taxis will be more...

  • Non-aircon taxis around Davao City

    To save on taxi fare, try taking a non-aircon taxi rather than an aircon one. Flagdown for the former is P26.00, plus P1 for every succeeding kilometer, while an aircon taxi's flagdown is P30.00, plus P2.5O for every kilometer after. (as of March 2007)

    Jeepney's are the cheapest way to get around town. Taxis in Davao are readily available. Majority of taxi's have radios so you can easily get one by calling the taxi company and they will be at your doorstep in no time. Holiday Taxi and maligaya Taxi are the more reliable ones.

  • Malagos Garden Resort Shuttle Service

    Airport Shuttle is 800p per trip/one way. So to maximize the cost, make sure that there are other passengers going to malagos so you can share the cost.

  • Davao Jeeps

    Minimum fare of 7php for the 1st 4 kms. I recommend taking the jeepneys in Davao City as their routes are clearly marked and most of them are in a "circular" route.

  • Davao Maxicab

    One of the popular modes of transpo around town. Minimum fare of 7php for the 1st 4 kms of journey. The hard thing for this type of transpo is that if you're tall, expect to be hunched down the entire duration of your journey! For longer routes (like Downtown to SM), take a regular jeep!

  • Soaring high ... on time!

    There are 3 major local airlines servicing the Manila-Davao route. However, probably due to family loyalty ;-), I have to fly on Cebu Pacific. Sans this, I must admit that I will still choose CebuPac. Short of sounding like an advertisement for the airline, I experienced how "on time" they really are! In my last flight, we left Davao 10 minutes...

    In Davao, tricycles are not for turists but for people's daily life. Most of tricycles are manpowered. When it runs you feel comfortable breeze of wind and the parasol keeps you from the sunbeam. But once the wind blows against you, the driver has to draw all his power due to the parasol, and naturally you feel tension on your shoulders too. 8 peso...
