WELCOME TO DAVAO

The history of Davao is brief, but interesting.It travels back to the past and brings to mind tribal wars,drum beats and ritual fires along river banks which,according to some sources,gave origin to the word Davao from "daba-daba" meaning fire.The early inhabitants occupying the Eastern shores of Davao were the Manobos,Tagacaolos,Guiangans,B'laans and Itas.

Davao enjoys possibly the best tropical climate in the Philippines as there are no pronounced dry or wet seasons and it is practically free from typhoons.The city is serviced by all major domestic airlines and is accessible by boat from Manila, Cebu, iloilo, and Zamboanga.Eco-adventures are plentiful,such as:diving,snorkeling,mountain biking and climbing,kayaking,canoeing,horseback riding and spelunking.

The Davao museum is a landmark which offers the opportunity to understand the soul of the people of Davao.Its main gallery is repository of tribal arts and of material culture such as:tribal art, costumes,jewelry and handcrafts.There's also a gallery of paintings,sculptures and ceramics,and a souvenir shop of native products.

The Philippine Eagle Research and Nature Center in Malagos is home of the world's largest eagle, the Philippine eagle.The largest eagle stands about 3 1/2 feet.The Philippine eagle is the country's national bird and is endemic to the Eastern portion of the Philippines.
