Davao City

Fruit Bowl of the Philippines

The urban developments of Davao City momentarily mask the reasons why the area has become known as the "fruit bowl of the Philippines," but you don't have to go too far to find out for yourself. Just head down one of the main commercial streets during your holiday in Davao City, and you'll see a multitude of stalls selling fruity snacks, including "ginanggang," a grilled banana dish that originated here. Out of town, the area's agricultural prowess becomes even clearer, with a wealth of plantations growing bananas, mangoes, coconuts, papayas, and cacao at the foot of the country's highest mountain. When using our Philippines tour itinerary planning site , you're building your holiday based on your own interests, visitor reviews, and the informed opinions of our well-traveled writers.

Where to stay in Davao City

You won't find a shortage of accommodations in Davao City, nor a lack of choice between different styles. Close to the central People's Park, a number of hotels great and small offer arrays of facilities to match the number of stars they display outside. A number of fairly basic family-run guesthouses offer up the budget options in town, located primarily on the side streets to the north and south of this central area. Look inland and out of town for a collection of guesthouses located right in the thick of the rural landscape.
