    Plano naming magpunta ng Davao para sa thesis. Parte ng aming pag sasaliksik ay ang pakikipanayam sa mga journalists, pati ng mga opisyal ng local gov ng Davao. Alin sa mga hotel na ito ang pinaka affordable para sa mga studyante, at ang pinakamalapit sa city government at newspaper publishers? :) Salamat!
