Davao City is the largest urban center in Southern Philippines and the third-largest metropolitan area in the Philippines after Manila and Cebu.

Davao is famous for its natural attractions, many of which are easily reached from the city center. Within an hour’s travel from the airport or Davao City hotels, you can already enjoy the pristine white sand beaches of Samal Island or visit the highland nature parks at the foot of Mount Apo, the Philippines’ tallest peak.

A trip to Davao isn’t complete without a taste of the iconic Durian fruit and meeting the gigantic Philippine Eagle, the country’s national bird.

Davao City is also the gateway to surrounding provinces in the Davao Region as well as nearby regions in the southern & eastern parts of Mindanao.
