    Birdshow is excellent. Children and adults can learn from it. The chocolate museum is a first in the country. The concept of tree to bar experience is hands on. The resort lets you commune with nature.

    Paradise in Davao city. I like the place but too much protection makes it feel like a prison not paradise. The theme of nature garden looks like Disney Paris but no ride or noise pollution. Need a lot of ideas to make it more alive.

    Well organized, makes the place seem larger than actual land area. Kids will not want to leave the museum. Birds and butterflies are tops

    Entrance is very pricy! When i searched in the internet it was only 100, but when we arrived we were shocked because it became 200. The increase starts Jan2017. For your 200 it wasn't worthy, the place is big but there is no free shuttle ride to tour around. -The chocolate factory is still close when we went (Jan2017), i am not sure if it's open now. -Butterfly garden has no butterflies (all dead). -We went into a big cage for birds to see kinds of birds, but the caretaker says we have to go outside because it is still under renovation. -There is no bird show. -The kids tried to go to a certain relay course but the caretaker says its not free we have to pay first. (You only have to climb to a tied rope, walk in a mini bridge and etc. and you need to pay?) -It's better to visit Eden than here. You'll end up regreting..

    If you love nature with the serenity of a sprawling complex of well maintained nature then this place is worth a visit for you might spend an entire day here. You do notice that years have been invested to carefully shape this place to where it is now. It is also home to an award winning Malagos Chocolate that can match the quality of other black chocolates around the world. They do have accommodations if you want to stay overnight. Of all the places I've been in Davao, this is #2 with #1 being the Philippine Eagle Center (which happens to be less than a kilometer from Malagos Garden Resort).

Where to stay in Davao City

You won't find a shortage of accommodations in Davao City, nor a lack of choice between different styles. Close to the central People's Park, a number of hotels great and small offer arrays of facilities to match the number of stars they display outside. A number of fairly basic family-run guesthouses offer up the budget options in town, located primarily on the side streets to the north and south of this central area. Look inland and out of town for a collection of guesthouses located right in the thick of the rural landscape.
