Known as the capital city of the South, Davao is at times synonymous with the durian fruit the city is well-known for. Developed, progressive, vigorous, disciplined, orderly, abundant—these are just a few of the many words one can use to describe and characterize such a powerful city in the South. Regarded as one of the safest cities not only in the country but in the whole world, there is a slew of compelling reasons why Davao would make a feasible choice as a permanent residence.
Among all the cities in the Philippines, Davao is known to be rather stringent in implementing and enacting ordinances and laws. In fact, it is the city with the lowest crime rate in the country, and that counts for a lot considering that the city was once overrun with rampant crime and general disorder. With the infamous Mayor “Digong” Duterte, the city of Davao finally experienced the peace and order it deserved. His reign as mayor did wonder for the betterment and maintenance of the city we all know and recognize today.
In terms of land area, Davao is the largest city in the Philippines, but in terms of population, it comes fourth behind Quezon, Manila, and Caloocan. As the third, most densely populated metropolis in the Philippines (next only to Cebu and Metro Manila), one can expect to have all the major conveniences found in a progressive city.
While the city has many modern conventions of a typical progressive metropolis, there might be some other things that would contribute to the city’s distinct and unique character. Davao is more than just a city led by a colorful and strong-willed politician; it is a multi-faceted city with various aspects that would make it a viable place to live, work, and play in.
Facts about Davao City
- Metro Manila is the country’s capital, and yet despite this, Davao City is the largest city in the Philippines with a land area of 2,444 kilometers. However, it remains one of the safest cities globally (ranking fifth at that) despite its sheer size and growing population.
- It is considered the Eco-Adventure Capital of the Philippines, as the city capitalizes on the area's outdoor potential. Its land area covers over 22,400 hectares in Southern Mindanao, making it one of the world's largest. In this regard, residents can expect adequate space for sustainable development projects and environmentally-friendly expansions. As a result, Davao has always been a tourist favorite for leisurely outdoor and travel activities among large groups of travelers.
- Davao is regarded as the Sashimi Capital of the Philippines. It is one of the biggest and thriving industries in the city, as the Filipino counterpart of the Japanese food fare, kinilaw, is most commonly served at restaurants and homes in the city.
- The city has been recognized as one of the top ten Asian cities of the future. Ranking tenth in the list of the Top 10 Asian Cities of the Future in 2008, foreign investment experts have noticed Davao’s immense business enterprise potential. Indeed, the city is fertile ground for any business endeavor or expansion, making it a feasible city for any future investments.
- Davao is Mindanao’s center of commerce, trade, and services. In this regard, it is not uncommon to see a thriving industry of BPOs, banks, and many other establishments in the city.
- It is mostly known for the majestic and scenic Mount Apo. This also happens to be the country's highest peak, standing at 10,311 feet above sea level.
- Some of the inherently identified icons with the city are the durian, Mount Apo, the Philippine Eagle, and the Waling-Waling.
- It is home to one of the most unique festivals in the Philippines: the Kadayawan Festival. Celebrated every third week of August, what sets it apart is that it is the only non-religious Thanksgiving celebration in the country.
- Being a diverse and multicultural city, Davao is home to 11 ethnolinguistic groups. The city comprises six Moro tribes and five non-Moro (Lumads) tribes, all living harmoniously. In fact, a significant part of the Kadayawan festivities is to honor and pay homage to these ethnolinguistic groups and pay tribute to their art, culture, and language. Individuals who wish to delve deeper into these ethnolinguistic groups’ cultures can do so in the temporary Tribal Village installation in Magsaysay Park, where guests are allowed to interact and learn more about them and their heritage first-hand.
- Davao is primarily the city where you can learn about commuting culture. This is because many of the thoroughfares in the city are one-way streets. For some, this might come as a shock, but on the bright side, you get to be more familiar with the city and its geography.
Compelling reasons to live in Davao
1.) Peaceful city life
One of the main draws of living in Davao City is its claim to fame as one of the safest cities in the country and the entire world. Ranking as the fifth safest city globally, Davao is heavily lauded for its impressively low crime rate and its strict order and discipline that is very much evident throughout the city. In fact, the law is so strictly implemented that you would have no qualms leaving your personal belongings in establishments and finding them untouched hours or even a day later.
2.) A fast-developing city
Despite its peaceful nature, Davao is still a bustling metropolitan that establishes its mark as one of the most rapidly developing cities. Consequently, it has one of the country’s best public utilities and has the potential for infrastructure growth and services. In this regard, many would-be residents find themselves flocking to this southern city of the Philippines. To keep up with the demand, Davao has a diverse array of residential options. Abreeza Place, Abreeza Residences, and Patio Suites are just some of the leading projects led by top residential developer Alveo Land in the city.
3.) The 911 Team is always ready to go
True to its claim to fame of being the fifth safest city in the world, Davao is the only Asian city with an integrated emergency response that rivals that of the United States and Canada. The service is absolutely free and is subsidized by the local government. Central 911 responds to a wide array of emergencies: medical, fire, police assistance, or any disaster. In this regard, locals can rest easy at night knowing that whatever might happen, they are in safe hands with the help of a single phone call away.
4.) Low cost of living
Another primary allure of living in Davao City is that the ideal quality of life does not come at an exorbitant cost. The city gives you the avenue to enjoy the freshest and highest quality agricultural produce sans the expensive cost. Davao exports large volumes of produce such as pineapples, tuna, bananas, and orchids, with pomelo, durian, and mangosteen being the highest agricultural produce in demand. However, regardless of demand, all of these have remained affordable and are easily accessible to the locals daily.
More importantly, as Davao is not wanting in land space (being the largest city in the world), the cost of real estate properties here is much cheaper than those in Metro Manila. In fact, this is one of those cities where a peso can go a long way without necessarily giving up luxuries and recreational activities one may be accustomed to.
5.) Proximity to nature
