Davao Tourism: Places You Want to Go

No tourism in any country that is not promoted. Every city, every country in the world has its tourism well supported by the government. This is essential to all countries because this brings big money from goods and services through different kinds of industry like the transportation, accommodation, and entertainment. This money will then create jobs for its country’s citizens.

Davao Tourism

A city in the Philippines like Davao is one. The Philippine Department of Tourism proclaimed Davao as the most livable city in the Philippines in 2008. Until now it still is the most livable city in the country, even much more livable now because of the infrastructure developments and more stricter implementations of city ordinances. It received more awards “like 10th Asian City of the Future” by FDI Magazine, an investment news magazine in UK.

City Hall of Davao

This is a city that has very clean, potable drinking water, peace and order, child-friendly streets, affordable food, clean air and environment, disciplined drivers, big traffic lights, Dial 911 rescue unit, Task Force Davao for the safety of tourists and citizens, a dangerous place for criminals, a no-smoking city and a firecracker-ban society. Life is here, as the slogan goes.

So I don’t need to talk about all the good things about Davao because everybody has already said that, and you might have even heard or read them already.

We have to go deeper into what DAVAO TOURISM is all about. What it can provide to tourists and local visitors. What they have to expect when they arrive, and what attractions they will see and the things they will have pleasure with.
