Davao

The Davao Region is famous internationally because of its rich biodiversity. In the Philippines, out of the six UNESCO World Heritage Sites, only one can be found in Mindanao. That is the Mount Hamiguitan Range Wildlife Sanctuary found in Davao Oriental, the only mountain range heritage site in the country. It is for this reason that the province deems it as its “Most Treasured Natural Jewel”.

Aside from the natural treasures it possesses, Davao City is also rich in cultural history. Home to the 11 indigenous communities, Davao is proud of its various cultures and traditions which makes it a diverse but united city for everyone to experience.

While Davao prides itself for being host to the country’s icons: the Mt. Apo, the “King of Philippine Mountains” and the country’s highest peak; Waling-waling the “Queen of Orchids”; the Philippine Eagle, always referred to as the “King of Birds” and the country’s National Bird; and the Durian, the “King of Fruits”l a visit to this Southeastern portion of the Mindanao in the Philippines will take you to these majestic icons and beyond.

Davao Region will surely satisfy your urge for island to highlands experience. All the provinces under the Davao Region has scenic mountain ranges, plunging waterfalls, white sand beaches, and breathtaking island destinations. Prepare your heart out as you immerse in the authentic culture, experience the rich biodiversity and dig in culinary adventure, all worthy of a visit or two.
