Must Visit and Best Places to See in Tagum City

The Banana Beach at Hijo Resort is the top tourist destination in Tagum City, Davao del Norte. An earthquake left North Cotabato devastated, so hotels and other structures were closed while waiting to be evaluated, as a result, my itinerary was suddenly changed. Hijo Resort looks great and the reviews were promising, but upon inquiry, the staff set my expectation that part of the resort is closed due to renovation. It was a NO. Alternatively, I stayed at one of the cheapest apartelles in Tagum for my route to Monkayo, Compostela Valley the next day.
