Davao City is home to some of the country’s pride: Mt. Apo, the “King of Philippine Mountains” and the country’s highest peak; Waling-waling, the “Queen of Orchids”; the Philippine Eagle, the one of the world’s largest eagles and the country’s National Bird; Durian, the “King of Fruits”; and “Kadayawan”, the Philippines’ “Festival of Festivals.” What makes Davao City different from other cities in the Philippines and in the Asia-Pacific Region that would make it ideal for tourism and investment? Davao City’s abundant and diverse nature and culture set in a clean, safe, and cosmopolitan community of happy and proud peoples.
