Mindanao

Trip Planner Asia  /  Philippines  /  Mindanao

The Philippines' Land of Promise

With gorgeous beaches, jungles, and the nation's highest peak, one may wonder why tourism on Mindanao hasn't gone through the roof. The 20th century saw the government-enforced settlement--often with extremely brutal tactics--of Christians on this Muslim (Moro) majority island. Decades of land-grabbing and horrific violence against the Moro has led to an ongoing conflict in certain areas. Still, those that do vacation on Mindanao discover a wealth of places to visit, from cosmopolitan Davao City to 3,144 m (10,315 ft) high Mt. Apo, home to the Philippine eagle. Guided tours through tropical rainforest, lounging on pristine beaches, and testing out excellent surfing spots make up other highlights of a Mindanao itinerary. Round out your visit with trips to traditional mountain villages, and see how rural farmers work the land in this major agricultural region. Add Mindanao and other destinations to your itinerary using our Philippines trip site , and learn about what to see, what to do, and where to stay.
