Davao might be a bustling metropolis, but it has never lost its focus on celebrating the great outdoors. Go to the Davao Riverfront Complex to see Crocodile Park. What's more fun than getting acquainted with crocs and other fascinating critters? The complex also houses the Davao Butterfly House and Tribu K'Mindanawan, a historical village that hearkens back to the Philippines of times past. If you're in the mood to explore the various natural wonders that can be found outside the city limits, then rent a car in Davao City and visit Lake Venado and Mount Apo.
Festivals and Events
The biggest draw to Davao City is the Kadayawan Festival. This annual event takes place in August and is a week-long celebration of the harvest and life in Davao. There's another large-scale celebration for the Chinese New Year, so if you're visiting in February, you may be lucky enough to catch it—the fireworks and festivities will delight and excite you. You could also check out the Mid-Autumn Moon Cake Festival. It's the second most important Chinese celebration, and it's also quite the experience to munch on moon cakes while staring at the moon. Just book Davao City vacation packages to do all this and more.
