The city of Davao is Mindanao’s main gateway and most important metropolitan area. Sitting in the shadow of the Philippines’ highest mountain, Mt Apo, this vibrant city is a blend of natural beauty and traditional culture, with modern development thrown into the mix for good measure. Being the gateway to the island of Mindanao, the city is commonly seen as a starting point to many outdoor adventures here. However, visitors should not underestimate this charming seaside destination.Don’t Miss
Even though Davao is often used simply as a base to explore Mindanao, there are several interesting religious structures that are great for sightseeing. The Shrine of the Holy Infant Jesus is a gorgeous little shrine that sits upon a relaxing hill in Matina. The 19th-century San Pedro Cathedral is the main cathedral in town, and shouldn’t be missed. It remains relatively busy every day.
The city is home to several interesting parks. The Crocodile Park is a great place for the whole family and home to the famous Philippine crocodile. Events include interesting conservation programs, feeding shows and other crocodile-related shows. Just 30 minutes’ drive from the heart of Davao is Eden Nature Park. Hiking trails, horse-riding and a range of other attractions help lure travellers to this natural oasis.
Visitors can spend a day at the beach by venturing to Samal Island. It is just a short boat ride from Davao and features several lovely beaches that are perfect for sunbathing, swimming and relaxing. The island remains relatively quiet throughout the year.Restaurants and Bars
Davao has become synonymous with durian and pomelo. These two fruits are in abundance, so many of the local desserts and drinks use them as common ingredients. Even though many restaurants serve traditional Davao and Mindanao delicacies, tourists can also find a solid assortment of international cuisines. Traditional Chinese, Dutch, Vietnamese, Thai, fusion and American-style restaurants are all around, especially in and around the larger malls. Local nightlife is very tame, with clubs and pubs closing early, and staying closed on weekdays. Pubs in Davao are very relaxed compared to those in Manila and Cebu.Shopping
Davao features a long list of shopping centres, many boasting cinema complexes, supermarkets and other entertainment facilities. SM City Davao is one of the most popular places and some of the most famous global fashion brands operate here. Victoria Plaza and Abreeza are within walking distance of each other, and Centrepoint Plaza welcomes thousands of visitors each day.
