Davao Philippines

Davao is a city transformed from the severe unrest it suffered in the 1980s and 90s. Surrounded by breath-taking beauty, tourists will find Davao affordable and less commercial and busy than some of the premier resort towns of the Philippines, such as Boracay and Palawan.

But visitors here won’t be short of things to do. Davao has an enviable range of outdoor activities to pursue, sun-kissed beaches to lie on and gorgeous blue seas to explore. There’s also a rich vein of history running through the town, with relics of old Spanish conquerors and scars from pan-continental wars to visit, for those keen to explore the making of modern-day Davao.
