We’re going east with the Davao Bloggers Society Travel Squad this weekend and you can join us… albeit virtually. The Provincial Tourism Office of Davao Oriental has invited Davao Bloggers to see, hear, feel, smell, and taste the best of Davao Oriental. I invite you to experience Davao Oriental with us. Here’s our Davao Oriental Itinerary that’s super packed with activities.
