DAVAO Expedition

Last week, my officemate and I had a business trip/Site visit in DAVAO City "The Durian Capital of the Philippines". It was our first time to go there, we were so excited and thrilled because of so many fine advertisements we heard about the town. Davao is the largest city located on the island of Mindanao. It is also one of the Philippines' most progressive cities. Its international airport and seaports are among the busiest cargo hubs in the southern part of the Philippines.

By air, Davao is 1 hour and 30 mins away from Metro Manila. And our site is 30 mins ride from Davao International Airport via Taxi. There are too many beautiful places in Davao, stunning and striking. A place where you can enjoy their unbelievable weather condition, a place that can easily take your breath away. Weather predictability in Davao makes it highly conducive to agricultural production that’s why Davao is the only place where you can find a perfectly ripe Pomelo's, uncommon sweetness of mangosteen and of course the yummy luscious mouth-watering Durian. Yellow fin Tuna and other underwater creatures were also known in Davao.

On our short but unforgettable stay in Davao, we were able to explore different places and eat their special dishes. One of this place is Paradise Island, Having a shoreline of almost eight hundred meters (800m), it is the only place in this part of Samal Island that has maintained its shores by feeding the fishes, clean them with having periodic “Scubasurero Activities”, and has placed a “safety net” to ward off jelly fish and rubbish, discouraging anglers from poaching the area and encouraging its visitors to enjoy the marine life and leave the same so that others may also enjoy them. Its white sand beach as well as its surroundings are combed and cleaned throughout the day giving a pure and clean ambiance for its visitors and workers alike.

I really enjoy our stay in Davao. The place is very relaxing and a perfect tourist destination. Foods are so delicious and people are very accommodating.
