The sprawling metropolis of Davao is hailed as one of the most energetic and cosmopolitan centres in the Philippines. Strewn out across the hilly valleys of the Mindanao coast, the diverse local populace here enjoys a place right on the doorstep of some of the country’s most awe-inspiring natural wonders.
To the south, the dominating shadow of Mount Apo, the largest in the entire archipelago, forms one of the biggest attractions, and it’s possible to organise multi-day hikes departing from town. Nearby, the Philippine Eagle Center showcases one of the most endangered birds in the world and the Eden Nature Park has panoramic walking trails to boot.
Explore Davao Poblacion (the central district) with your Davao tour guide for a patchwork of post-colonial architecture, heady market places and interesting heritage museums, many of which showcase the old tribal character of the city and its historical connection with settlers from Japan.
For foodies, the city is famed as the best producer of Mango and Durian fruits in the Philippines, while the local favourite sinuglaw dish offers a taste of Davao’s multi-cultural cuisine style; definitely worth a try.
