Happy Place in Davao City

by - Tuesday, August 12, 2014

I am a Dabawenya and I am very proud to call my self a native from Davao City.

Here in Davao City we have 182 Barangays arranged into 3 Legislative Districts and 11 administrative districts.

For 38 years living here, I can say that I haven't known my City well. There are some places that I haven't visited like PAQUIBATO(2)and MARILOG(3) District.

Yes! I belong to 1st District that is why places I've mentioned above are nowhere near me. I am curious to know what is happening in these places and how to go there. It is SAFE or do we need a guide to travel here?

PAQUIBATO DISTRICT 2 compose of 13 Barangays:

Fatima(Benowang)
Colosas
Lumiad
Mabuhay
Malabog
Mapula
Panalum
Pandaitan
Paquibato Proper
Paradise Embak
Salapawan
Sumimao
Tapak



I heard so much about this place, but most of the news I get are all negative. When the Military decided to establish a camp here the livelihood of the people of Paquibato were affected. But I was wrong, when I saw the pictures from their FACEBOOK PAGE the place was so peaceful and harmonious. Nice place to live. More photos here: ENTER DAVAO



MARILOG DISTRICT 3 compose of 12 Barangays:

Baganihan
Bantol
Buda
Dalag
Datu Salumay
Gumitan
Magsaysay
Malamba
Marilog Proper
Salaysay
Suawan(Tuli)
Tamugan  





Eager to visit this place again except for BUDA. I've been to BUDA not once but thrice
and I really enjoyed the place. So refreshing! 

Wanted to experience other places like Suawan and Tamugan wherein my parents used to teach the tribes of Davao City. More or less 60 kilometers away from the busiest street of Davao City. Pollution free, noise-free and stress-free!

Not so well visited places here in Davao City but soon to be part of your itinerary once you travel to my town. If you decide to visit Davao, visit Davao City Tourism for your guide they will definitely help and assist you in providing assistance and advice on how to visit this places. 

And I will conclude that this will become a HAPPY PLACE in Davao if given a proper promotion.
