Davao being located in the Mindanao Region scares some tourist to visit. But whoa...such a mistake. Davao is a disciplined community. Headed by Mayor Rodrigo "Rody" Duterte it has boomed and changed into a beautiful place.
The air is still fresh... despite the availability of various forms of transportation like cabs, jeepneys, motor bikes, etc.
Farming and planting crops and fruits is still a good business in Davao. They cultivate thus have abundant supply of fresh fruits like bananas, pineapples, papayas, lansones, dalanghita (local oranges), suha (pomelo), mangostene and including the exotic Durian.
There is another fruit which i do not often see around in Manila but only in the Mindanao area. This called Marang. It is similar to the langka (jackfruit) inside and out. Inside there are seeds enclosed with the fruits flesh/meat. We eat the meat smaller yet as sweet as the langka. The natives says the taste of marang depends on the stage of its ripeness, the more ripe the fruit is the more sweet is is but I recommend you to taste just the "just riped" because the over ripe is too sweet to be eaten fresh. I like it cooked into a sweetened dessert.
