General opinion: If you need a place to retire Davao is the best!! Peaceful, clean and not a fast pace city.. IT's so safe to go out at night and a lot of taxis, jeepneys and even private motorcycles-turned-public rides roam around the city to take you whereever you wanna go at the right price.. Malls are sprouting everywhere to give you a feeling of not being left out but keeping you updated of what's in and what's trendy now.. if you need to retreat and stay somewhere quite.. it's just minutes away to do island hopping or go up in the mountain rent a place there to commune with nature..in Davao anything is possible!!

General opinion: A safe, "livable" city slowly becoming less so. It is wonderful in many ways, but the incursion of national (Manila) and international business is likely to gradually undermine its unique character. Yet this appears what Davaoinians want - each new mall ins supermarket which opens seems to reduce the number of customers in the established shopping centers like NCCC and Victoria Plaza

General opinion:  Davao is a dynamic city in the country of Philippines. It is one of the largest urban sprawls in the world with regard to land area. With a population of over one million inhabitants, it is among the most important cities in Philippines. Davao possesses some of the most beautiful beaches and mountain resorts in the country.
The city has a temperate climate. Summers are warm and humid while winters are mild. The climate is highly dependable and favourable for agriculture. Rainfall is received in adequate amounts and is distributed uniformly.
Since its inception, Davao has ... More been a progressive city. Infrastructure and communication facilities have boosted the city’s economic growth. In recent years, Davao has developed into a business and tourism centre of the country.

General opinion: I like davao. Except that it's hot and the transportation is lacking. Too much traffic too. The roads are still not good. Davao has lots of slums around especially in r castillo and the boulevard areas. Davao is getting polluted. The air is begining to smog and the dust pollution is high. Also the CENRO should improve the trash bins because they are no longer good looking and it pollutes the eyes of the people.

General opinion: Davao is a great place to roam to and from. It is improving and developing. Its is fun in Davao, especially during Kadayawan Festivasl,where there are lots of festivities, like floral float, mutya ng Dabaw, dance competition, and other more. And if you want relaxation, there are lots of fine beaches and resort, especially those found at Samal, the Paradise Island, Blue Jazz, etc.
