5 Things To Do in Davao


Traveling is the best experience one could ever learn. Traveling alone or with a companion is fun, especially when you are in a new place. Davao is my first place to visit this 2016 and I hope for a monthly travel assignment for the whole year. It's my first time here in Davao and I'm loving every single tourist spot we visit. Davao is located in Mindanao, the southern part of the Philippines. It's the safest city/place in Mindanao - no smoking city ordinance, no firecrackers on any occasion or event, 12midnight liquor ban in establishments like bar and restaurant and clean city.


Davao is known for the Philippine Eating Eagle, Durian Fruit, Suha Fruit, Fresh Seafoods, Clean and Safe city.


1. Visit the San Pedro Cathedral


City Hall of Davao - just right in front of their cathedral.


2. Lola Abon's Original Durian Candy Store


Lola Abon's is the famous store to buy your "pasalubongs" to your family and friends. They have the best candies and durian ice cream.


Durian Candies, Yema, are for 30 to 35php and Durian Ice Cream for only 25php.


3. Have lunch or dinner at Garden by the Bay Resort and Restaurant.


The best grilled Tuna Belly and Seafood Chowder. Available at Garden by the Bay Oases.


3. Jack's Ridge Resort and Restaurant


 Jack's Ridge is one of the famous tourist spots here in Davao. Dine here while loving the scenery of Davao in day and night.


Pomelo Salad, Lapu Lapu in sweet and sour sauce, Mushroom Soup, Crispy Pata, Grilled Fish, Beef with Broccoli, Grilled Pork Ribs.


4. Bankerohan Market
Buy fresh Suha and Durian here at Bankerohan Market.

5. Visit Samal Island


Look how clear the water here in Paradise Resort, Samal Island. For 200php entrance fee, you get to swim at the beach with these little fish. I still have to see and visit the Eagle and Crocodile Farm and the Mt. Apo, definitely on my next trip to Davao and I can't wait to be back here.

  1. Davao is a great and peaceful city. I have wanted to visit Jack's Ridge Resort and Restaurant because of the many positive reviews it has online, however we did not have enough time to go there. There's always another time. :)

  13. Love the article! This makes me want to go home asap! Never been to Davao. I have only visited 6 of the thousands of islands, and the farthest was Negros. Davaoenos are known to be really kind, happy, and helpful people. I hope I'd manage to visit the city someday!
