Touring Around the City of Davao

Going to Davao might be one of the things that I want to do before. Thanks to Cha and Ken for spending time with me. Our ticket was booked 1 month before our flight schedule. I was able to search some tourist attraction at the city center of Davao. The places of interest outside Davao City is quiet far from each. So I set the theme as “If you were to tour a first timer around Davao City. Taking pictures all over Davao City for the whole day.

Photo Session Outside the Davao City Hall

After touring city center of Davao, we arrived at their City Hall. We take some pictures and return to the hotel. The Old City Hall (formerly the Municipal Building) was constructed in 1926, some ten years before Davao finally became a city.  There’s strict discipline being implemented in Davao City—no smoking, no littering, curfew hours, no fireworks, among many others, and the city is known for its strict compliance. No other city in the country is as disciplined. Criminals stay far from it. These no nonsense policies and exacting implementation are all forged at the city hall of Davao.


San Pedro Church in Davao City

While waiting for the time to check in the hotel, We roamed around Davao City and accidentially took part into their mass and take some pictures inside the church. Among the davao churches San Pedro Cathedral is considered the oldest church in the city. Located at the corner of San Pedro Street and CM Recto Avenue in Davao City, this church was named after the patron saint of the city.


Polian Buddhist Temple in Davao City

In Quirino Avenue is a high-fenced property with the distinctive arched rooftop – the Polian Temple. And since it was the Chinese New Year, I’ve never been to a Chinese temple in Davao City and so I snatched the opportunity to go to Polian Temple.  It was built through the efforts of the Chinese community led by Lim Pi in the 1960s and has since been the refuge for prayers of Davao Buddhists, and even the Christianized ones who have grown up running around the small manicured garden of the temple. Like any Buddhist temple, there were the two kidney shaped wood that you will hold in each hand and drop to see if you have the permission to go ahead and shake the container full of bamboo sticks, to seek guidance from the centuries old wisdom of the Buddha.
