Davao City Travel Guide: 557 reviews and 1,949 photos
First and foremost, Davao is a peaceful city. Though it has a million population, there are no traffic signals nor ordinary buses. I felt time passes slower than Manila.
It was Palm Sunday when I visited in 2005. The San Pedro Cathedral, open to San Pedro Street, was jam-packed with people all the day. Outside the church there were fair stall to sell crosses made of palm.
Jeepnies are the most popular public transportation vehicle here. During the trip I was impressed that this large city did not have any traffic signals. But later on this picture, I found one. The fact is that there are some traffic signals but none of them are working. Driving in Philippines is simple in a way. You find a space; you go into it; repeat. It seems no one think the traffic signals necessary. They say "Davao has no trafic signals but traffic".

- Cons:Poor international access, industry
- In a nutshell:The land of promise and unbroken dreams
