I thought I was already transforming into a Chinese mafia after all the tasty and flavorful Chinese dishes we consumed at Chef Lu and Lotus Court of Marco Polo Hotel Davao. However, our day has not ended yet as we were off to another hidden destination in Tugbok District at the Partoza Durian Farms, for our snacks and dinner.
The Partoza Durian Farm was an hour trip from the downtown area of Davao City. Gluttony and the decongestant I took for my flu knocked me over that I became disoriented with the location. The next thing I knew upon waking up from my slumber was that we were already in this hidden haven of joy and peace.
Don't get deceived by its name. Although boasting of more than 500 trees of durian and other fruits, this family-owned farm has already been transformed into a leisure destination for retreats, camping, educational tours or an escape for some peace quiet. One can really escape from the hustles and bustles of the city-life as there is no Wi-Fi connection and mobile connection signals in the area.
