See Davao’s main sights and landmarks in this half-day sightseeing excursion around the Durian Capital of the Philippines. Whether you’re visiting for a week or staying for a day, this tour is perfect for those who want to get the most of Davao in just half a day.
Your driver will be picking you up at your accommodation within Davao City and take you straight to the Lon Wa Buddhist Temple. Built with a wall made of Italian marble slab, the temple makes for a perfect backdrop for your photos. From there, you will be having a quick stopover at the Puentespina Compound for more photo-ops before you make your way to the Kadayawan Village located inside Magsaysay Park. The village aims to immerse its visitors in the lives of the 11 ethnic tribes, such as Bagobo-Klata, Ata, Matigsalug, and Ovu Manovu, through a showcase of their tribal houses. You can witness their cultural dance while in the village.
After exploring the village, you will be taken to the Magsaysay Fruitstand to buy some fresh fruits for you to take home. You will then be off on a running tour of Davao Chinatown. Just like the other Chinatowns of the country, this place features various Chinese restaurants and businesses you will surely enjoy.
Some two kilometers from the Chinatown is the San Pedro Cathedral. Being the city's oldest church, San Pedro Cathedral also doubles as the city’s premier historical landmark. It features the initial carvings of the statues of different saints that have been well-kept inside.
From the church, you will make your way to the City Council of Davao (Sangguniang Panlungsod ng Davao) before you enjoy a stopover at the People’s Park. The site was transformed into a park from a sporting and events venue and now serves as a leisure and recreation space for the locals. Just a short walk away from the park is the Pasalubong (souvenir) Center. This one-stop-shop features anything Davao, from delicacies to handicrafts. One of the must-visit store here is the Cacao City Center, where you can get a taste of Davao-made chocolate and cacao products. While in here, make sure to buy souvenirs before getting dropped off at your accommodation.
