Davao is one of the cities in the Philippines that I had always wanted to visit, if only to experience the renowned peacefulness there. The Duterte family has been ruling the city for decades, and their strict methods have resulted in Davao being one of most desirable places to live in the country. Imagine how much fun that could be for a visitor! So when I got the chance to go there for a weekend, I didn’t really hesitate. I would pay (and am paying) for that weekend in more ways than one, but it was a good experience. To deviate from the usual way of how I write about my trips, I think I’ll do that things I like about [insert place] here thingie. Here they are, in no particular order.
