You should also not miss buying Davao's delicacies. The best place to buy sweet delicacies is on Lola Abon and Apo ni Lola Abon. They have the best Durian candies. Native stuffs like bags, hats, shoes and accessories are also great. You can see them when you walk down the streets.

A very nice post. Davao will definitely be in my list of future travels and I will make it sure to set it on Dabaw day. March 15-17 sounds like a good idea, for travel since summer has just started and the airfare has not yet reached its peak. Happy Dabaw day sa mga dabawenyo!!
