Airfare ticket to Singapore to Davao

As I was invited for a wedding of my colleague who is originally from Davao, last year, I started looking for a cheap flight ticket to Davo. I found two options of reaching Davao, a ticket for a direct flight from Singapore to Davao, and a ticket with transit at Manila's NInoy Aquino Airport . The ticket through Manila to Davao was cheaper but as I did not have so many vacation days to spend on the trip to Davao, I went for the more expensive ticket to Davao on a direct flight. This ticket was issued through a ticket portal and it was for Singapore airlines who provided great service on both flight to Davao and back. I found Davao to be a charming city and I am thinking to look for a return ticket to Davao on my own next summer.

Visiting Davao on a return ticket from Kuala Lumpur

I have already visited Davo several times on vacation. I almost always fly to Davao on a direct flight from Kuala Lumpur with Cebu Pacific arilines which provide great service on board. I normally get a ticket for economy class both to Davao and back. What is more, I always get a discount when I purchase my ticket to Davao through the online ticket portal of Cebu Pacific. Last time I booked my ticket very late, the night before I intended to fly to Davao. The ticket to Davao turned out to be more expensive, but I decided to travel to Davao in the last moment. The ticket was worth it because Davao is a great destination, special to my heart.
