Another thing that Davao City is famous for, is its orchids. Specially the Waling-waling, which is considered to be the "Queen of Philippine Flowers".

And not just that, let me show you the other beautiful flowers we have in Davao.
Over the years, I have compiled the photos I took from different events and places.

Davao is a big city with a laid back life. It's very busy but traffic isn't as bad as Manila. It's perfect for me because I'm on the road most of the time, taking clients from one place to the other. I think it's difficult being a Real Estate broker in Manila, where you have to consider how long you will be in traffic , in making appointments. Here in Davao, I don't have that kind of problem. Often times, it's just a 15-30 min trip from north to south. So I can make at least 3 appointments everyday. :)
We don't have much night life in Davao. But the bars and restaurants in Torres St. have become more famous over the years. So for those who are night prowlers, I'd recommend to visit Torres St. You'll love the food (from chicken bbq to tenderloin steak, local to international cuisine). And by local I mean (with emphasis.. haha) "Let's Crab Eat". It's a restaurant that offers "all you can eat" crabs. Again, this is not a paid advertisement. :) But I love crabs.. So yeah, go there if you love it too! :)
I can go on and on and on... But I think you know by now that I'm pro Davao. I love it and its people! Most of us are hardworking people who value friends and families. :)
And speaking of families, that's what I'll write about next time. What you and your family can do when you're in Davao for a vacation. Maybe someday, you'd want to retire here also. :) And when you do, please buy or rent your homes through me. hehe...
