    depends on what life you want to live for the night. PF is luxurious, PI is not far but cheaper. unless you are with a "special someone" why not you just spend the night in the city and take PF and/or PI as a day tour? just a thought hehe!

    @ Pinoy traveler - I am travelling with a special someone :D

    My only issues about Pearl Farm is they don't seem to offer the "regular" island hopping package - they do rent out cruise boats or rig boats but prices are steep! and I saw the map, PF is far from the other places I want to see in Samal.
    But I DO REALLY wanna go to PF. Looks like I will have to forego the Island hopping adventure :(

    @ PT and monins, thanks for your replies, btw :)

    san,

    go both and also the island hopping..but since there are only both of you, its more likely to be expensive. as vt pinoy traveller has said, PT is luxurious but the price is nothing if you are with your special someone.

    i already sent you an e-mail regarding your queries with regards to your two posting.

    happy travels..!

    oh no!
    I've already booked the rest of our stay at Crown Regency, so it only leaves me 1 day and night in Samal :(
    Guess I need to go back to Davao then to check out PI? :)

    yes san, monina is right.. you can not feel davao in just a few days.. you have to try zip lining at camp sabros (the longest in asia) located in kapatagan davao del sur and the white water rafting.

    btw you can stay at PT for one night and have a day tour at PI the following day or in another day if you are planning to go to other places. day tour in PI is 100.00 only around 20 minutes travel time, boat ride is 15.00 PAX.
