tourist spots in Davao City
Davao City is the center of Mindanao, so it serves as the gateway to the different provinces in the region. With that in mind, culturally speaking, the city showcases the mixture of the different culture and traditions of the Christians, Muslims and the other minorities. Regardless of what they believe, the people unites, creates and nourishes the so called "Davao City." Though this city is highly urbanized, behind the structures and commercial establishments are hidden tourist spots and destinations waiting to be uncovered. Let us discover some of the must visit in the city.

MY RECOMMENDATION: The traffic in Davao City is also bad especially during rush hours, so going to the above-mentioned destinations might eat up a lot of time. I recommend to just use your Google Maps and walk on the streets. The most convenient mode of transportation to Davao Crocodile Park is via taxi (around 200 pesos one way). If in doubt, always ask the locals or the traffic enforces, they are very welcoming!

HOW TO GET TO DAVAO CITY:
From Manila, Cebu Pacific, Philippine Airlines, Air Asia and other carrier have regular trips to Davao City. From the airport, take a taxi to any point in the city.

WHERE TO STAY IN DAVAO CITY:
I stayed at D'Morvie Suites (San Pedro) for only 448 Pesos for 24 hours. The room has flat screen TV, AC, toilet and bath, WiFi (very slow reception). What's good in D'Morvie Suites is that the building is new, clean, affordable and accessible but has limited spaces for hallways, elevator and etc. For a person on a tight budget like me, overall - it's a YES for me!
