Once known as the largest city in the world, Davao City has now slipped to second place — and that’s still quite a global badge of honor, too.
Consider: In the Asean growth corridor called the BIMP-EAGA (Brunei-Indonesia-Malaysia-Philippines East Asian Growth Area), the Philippine point of entry is not Manila but Davao City.
It is the home of the monkey-eating Philippine Eagle, whose wing span is a mind-boggling stretch.
Here, you can climb the highest peak in the Philippines, Mt. Apo. Along the way are unbelievably generous harvests of tropical fruits, foremost of which is the durian, from the Malay, meaning, “the thorny fruit.”
We haven’t even mentioned the beaches. And the mouthwatering seafood. Plus the sizzling nightlife.
What’s more, Davao City throbs with its world-class multicultural diversity.
