Whether you’re a foreigner or a Filipino from Luzon or the Visayas, you’re probably a bit leery of travelling in that part of the Philippines known as Mindanao.
Mindanao is always in the new s, and not in a very good way.
It’s often depicted as a hotbed of armed conflict where Islamic separatists are perpetually battling government forces in a rebellion that’s been going on for considerably more than half a century. This image of Mindanao as a dangerous place for travel is a bit unfortunate, as it is one of the most beautiful and unspoiled regions in the Philippines.
Fortunately, not all areas of Mindanao are affected by political unrest. In reality, there are several large and prosperous urban centers in the area. Davao City is one of these. Checking into a Davao hotel is the beginning of a one-of-a-kind experience. Davao City hotels can be found in many locations all over this tourist-friendly city.
Davao is known as one of the safest and cleanest cities not just in Mindanao but also in the whole Philippines. The moment you step out of your Davao hotel, you’ll feel and see the difference. There are very few unruly vendors on the sidewalks, the streets are relatively free of litter and trash, and you’ll find cab drivers who won’t overcharge you or “forget” to turn on the meter.
Once you’ve booked into one of the many Davao City hotels, you can expect to experience the warm hospitality that’s characteristic of the Philippine islands. You’ll find the staff and fellow guests eager to give you advice and help you find your way around the city.
If you want to experience nature and urban conveniences in the heart of Mindanao, the first step is to book a stay at one of several Davao city hotels; you’ll even find that there’s a Davao hotel to suit your budget no matter how large or small it might be.
