Life is Here : Fun Davao City
This is where I was born, live half of our life, left some 10 years and now, comes back for real. Yes, life is here in Davao City.
We have known Davao City as a peaceful city despite the location it lies. The impression given to Mindanao-ans (people living in Mindanao) are really strong. Some are afraid of us, others are aloof and unfriendly. But despite the characters that are adherent to us, the most beautiful places lies also within the island. One of it is Davao City, where fun and satisfaction meets.

Davao City is in Mindanao. It is 608 miles away from Manila and is also about 1 hour and 45 minutes air travel from Manila. From airport to downtown is about 45 minutes land travel. It has an international airport that offers direct flights to international countries as well. Davaoenos as they call the people in this city are very loving, creative, smart and humble people.
What is yet to offer?
