Davao, located on the southeastern part of Mindanao, which is strategically located in the Asia- Pacific rim, the city serves as a gateway to the world thus, making it the center of the region’s commerce, trade and services. The city is famous for Mount Apo, the highest peak in the Philippines, and its fruits production especially the exotic durian fruit.
This whole day tour will start with a visit at the Nieva’s Arts and Crafts where you’ll witness local pottery making with hand-painted native designs. Then, stop by at the Lon Wah Buddhist Temple which houses the white Italian marble Buddha and the Buddha with a thousand hands. Afterwards, head to Puentespina Garden, which features colorful flowers and highlights the waling-waling, the mother of all orchids.

Other tropical fruits that are famously grown in the province are the pomelo, marang, mangosteen, rambutan, lanzones and many others , earning Davao the nickname of “fruit basket “ of the Philippines.
