Davao, a booming city in the Philippines, has attracted worldwide attention because of its progress, zest, and remarkable peace and order situation.

Here are the top 5 reasons why davao is a must-visit destination this summer.

1. 4th safest city in the world

Safety must be an important factor when travelling. How would you enjoy the vibrant scenery and rich culture of a place if your life would be at stake while staying there? Obviously, it won’t be worth the travel.

However, if you choose Davao, you would not have such kind of problem. You won’t be afraid to wander its streets to experience it first hand. It’s because your safety is its top priority.

In fact, in a published article, Davao ranked 4th in the category of safest cities in the world.

2. Just a heartbeat away from the lush beaches

Having deficiency of vitamin sea?  No problem. You don’t have to travel for hours to take a plunge into the deep blue sea. Davao is just 15 minutes by boat to Samal Island, where white sandy beaches and pristine waters await you.

3. Adventure haven for thrill seekers  

Do you live and breathe adventure? If yes, then you would surely love it here. You can have the option to go wakeboarding, ziplining, white water rafting, or mountain climbing. Better yet, you can try them all!

The good news is that you don’t have to travel to different places to devour such 4 great outdoor sports. You can actually do them all in Davao.

4. A sanctuary for wildlife creatures

The Philippine eagle, the largest eagle in the world, nests in the rainforest of Davao. Unfortunately, the Philippine eagle is already endangered.

I encourage you to come to Davao and see the Philippine eagle up close and personal. Also, it would be of much help if you support the Philippine Eagle Foundation to preserve this bird of prey and its biodiversity for the future generations.

5. The most delectable fruits are found in Davao

If you are salivating for the tastiest fruits like banana, durian, mangosteen, pomelo, mango, lanzones, rambutan, and papaya, just to name a few, Davao is the right place to satisfy your cravings. In fact, Davao is very much blessed to grow such fruits abundantly especially during the Kadayawan season.

Now, you already know how exquisite Davao is. I’m pretty sure you are enthusiastic to see it in the flesh sooner.

Perhaps, the next thing that comes to your mind is the best guesthouse in Davao for you to book.

I suggest that you check out Herel Guest House. This affordable guesthouse in Davao is located along DECA Homes in Cabantian. The big advantage of staying here is that it is a hotel near Davao Airport, approximately a 10-minute drive to the airport. With this, you won’t have to stress yourself out about traffic jams on the day of your flight.

Nothing beats Davao as a favourite travel destination, not only during summertime, but all year long. As the slogan says, “Davao, Life is here!”
