(SPOT.ph) As an archipelago, the usual way to go around the country is by plane. Travel takes around an hour, even for islands far from Metro Manila. But for various reasons, some people are not too keen about flying. You're in luck as Parañaque Integrated Terminal Exchange has launched a new bus route to Davao City. This route started on June 15.

Travel takes three days and two nights, which is a whole lot of sleeping and/or binge-watching inside the bus. One-way fare is at P3,680. In case you're wondering how land travel happens from Luzon to Mindanao (and across the group of islands that is the Visayas), the bus ride includes two ferry transports through roll-on and roll-off. You can buy tickets at the terminal at the second floor or contact them through 0939-135-1349.

A coastal city near the Mount Apo, Davao City is also known as the "Cacao Capital of the Philippines." It also takes pride in its natural sights, such as Lake Venado near the slopes of the country's highest mountain; as well as thrilling outdoor parks, like the Davao Wildwater Adventure. The city is also a common jump-off point to the surf spots of Mati in Davao Oriental and white-sand beaches of Samal in Davao del Norte.
