Tropical rainforest, rugged mountains including the UNESCO World Heritage listed Mount Hamiguitan Range Wildlife Sanctuary, killer surf and beaches lure travelers to the island of Mindanao.

Mindanao’s capital – and the country’s third most populous city – vibrant Davao City has plenty of cultural, foodie delights and beaches just waiting to be discovered before you head to the island-province of Camiguin. 


As well as its tropical beaches, the latter is best known for its Mount Hibok-Hibok Protected Landscape of interior forest reserves (designated an ASEAN Heritage Park) and for its three National Cultural Treasures.

Davao City’s Francisco Bangoy International Airport has flights from Singapore, Hong Kong, Doha and Quanzhou, as well as internal flights. Other domestic flights operate to and between several airports within Mindanao including the island paradise of Siargao.


Hiking, diving, surfing and white-water rafting are just some of the exciting activities that await the adventurous in Davao Province and Camiguin, although wildlife encounters and visits to natural sites are high on the agenda too. Beaches promise relaxation, as do the likes of yoga and meditation with their associations with the Hindu-Buddhist traditions that influenced local life during the classic epoch of Philippine history. 


You might also consider a day-trip or overnighter to Lake Sebu a 4hr bus-ride (145km) southwest of Davao City – a growing ecotourism and adventure-sports destination as well as home to the T’boli and Ubo tribes.


  • Trek to the top of Mount Apo in Davao province – the Philippines’ highest peak, at 3,144m, or the UNESCO listed Mount Hamiguitan (1,620m).
  • Explore Davao City including the D’ Bone Collector natural history museum.
  • Visit Davao Crocodile Park & Zoo with its wildlife shows and educational exhibits.
  • Between Davao and the Cagayan de Oro, swim in Blue Water Cave in Bukidnon, and rappel, climb and spelunk nearby.
  • Go white-water rafting in the Cagayan de Oro River with its electrifying rapids.
  • Surf at Dahican Beach in Davao Oriental.
  • Explore Camiguin’s historic gems: the Old Bonbon Church ruins and Sunken Cemetery in Catarman, Guinsilibas’ Spanish-era watchtower, Old Mambajao fountain and municipal building, Santo Rosario Church in Sagay town, and 14 heritage and ancestral houses.
  • Immerse yourself in nature at Tuasan Falls on Camiguin island, a lovely spot to swim.
  • Dive or snorkel at sites suited to all levels, especially those around Camiguin Island.
  • Visit Davao’s luxury farm resorts Pearl Farm and Dusit Thani Lubi Plantation.

mga pards, ive been to davao and stayed in marco polo several times. Yung massage service dun pwede sextra, P1,000 yung siningil before. but i wouldnt recommend it, wala namang selection na maayos, not worth it. Better to go out - davao is pretty safe, just get a cab and ask him to take you to cabaguio st., dami options dun. alternatively, you could go take a walk to the Venue, sa may kanto dun may two stands ng cigret vendors na magkatabi - they act as conduits for some pros - pwede m dalin sa marco polo, no problem, but again lousy din ang selection, in my opinion. MTS is also an option, madami nakatambay doon, sa may CR area.


I read somewhere here na may pimp ng maayos na girls sa may SM, sa Bo's coffee shop - look for randy daw? maybe you could verify this, and spread the info :)

There are some street girls near Apo View Hotel or Victoria Plaza.

Quite cheap but... not so good. There are also some casas at

Guerero St. I didn't try and very shabby too.


There is a KTV, MP, and Go-go-bar at Cabaguio St. But quite

expensive and not worth to visit.


There is Go-go-bars at San Pedro St. but not worth to visit too.


There is a small bar near Marcopolo Hotel. Turn left at the main

gate and keep walking toward till you reach fruit stands. Then

you can find Danny's bar.


If you keep on walking, you can find Venue compound. Venue

was a best place before but I don't know now..


There is a 'Bar One' (or One Bar?) A waiter knows non-professional

escort girls.


There is a club called 'Liquid' at Apo View Hotel. On Friday and Saturday,

it's very crowded. Or you can go to Rizal Promenade, 5 minutes away

from Apo View Hotel. There's 183 bar. It's also crowded during weekends.


After 2am, all the bars and clubs are closed. Then people go to

StarMart or Shell near SM Davao. Of course, they don't sell liquors

after 2am too. Maybe you can pick up some girls there if you can.. :)


In summary..


Danny's Bar, Liquid Bar, Venue, 183, Halo(in Venue).. are worth to drop by..


Maybe I'm not updated since I left Davao last december. :)
