Daet is a first class municipality and capital of the province of Camarines Norte in the Philippines. According to the 2010 census, it has a population of 95,572 people.The municipality is a popular surfing spot among surfers worldwide. It is also home to the annual Daet International Aerosports Show, first held in 2013.EtymologyThe name Daet was derived from the Bikol word dai-daitan which means, close to each other. Daet also originated from ancient Bicol term daet which, according to the first Bicol Spanish Dictionary Vocabulario dela Lengua Vicol authored by Fray Marcos de Lisboa, would mean "to make friend" or "to be reconciled".HistoryIn 1571, Juan de Salcedo arrived at the Bicol Region in quest for gold found in Camarines Norte and discovered that Daet was already a thriving settlement and noted that the houses were clustered together for reason of safety and protection. In June 1583, through a Franciscan Order confirmed the founding of Doctrinas including Daet.Conversion to cityhoodA P30-million government center, a P30-million transport terminal and an improved airport are among the large-scale face-lift projects that Camarines Norte’s capital town plans to embark on as it aggressively vies for cityhood.The projects, including a new face of the town plaza, were presented by Mayor Tito Sarion in an executive report last month. "The enhancement of the elevated plaza is necessary to decongest the downtown in an attempt to rebuild the center of the commercial district," he said.Our Philippines trip itinerary builder combines visitor reviews with your personal interests to make an itinerary informed by experts, but tailored to suit your style.
