Christmas in Davao

December 10, 2007

I’ll be spending the Holidays in Davao City….

Its my first time o celebrate Christmas and New Year away from my family. And it will also be a first for me to celebrate the holidays in a new place.

A Manilenyo wants to see how Dabawenyos and Dabawenyas  celebrate the season.

I’ll go around Davao (and maybe neighboring towns) for me to see the sites and hear the sounds of “the Davao Christmas”.

I’ll be celebrating Christmas at a friend’s house. No plans for new year yet.. wanna adopt a manilenyo for new year? =p

    Davao is very quiet during Christmas. For several years now, explosive fireworks and such have been banned here. It makes for a rather depressing state of affairs during the Yuletide season, but at least it’s stopped all the unnecessary injuries and deaths caused by super triangles, judas belts, etc. 🙂

    If you want to see fireworks, just head on over to Samal Island 😀

    I have been in Cebu City during Christmas and as an American I woke up and said ” Who are we at war with ? Who is winning ” So I think that being hurt at Christmas or anytime is NOT something desireable. A ban is good. If I VISIT Davao as an American how SAFE is it for me to go there a month to visit. Are Americans all sought out as a target ? I was robbed before on a ship near Cebu and is always that stuff going on in Cebu.

    Howard,

    Davao City is one of teh safest place here in the Philippines. There are a lot of tourists here. And you know what, once you come here, you’d come back for more!

    A lot of foreigners wants to stay here. Beautiful, quiet, clean, and yes, SAFE place for foreigners and locals. Check out Mindanao Bob at mindanao.com/blog.

    Now that you’ve experienced Cebu, Why not try Davao and see the difference!
