I lived in Davao for 6 months in 2013. I moved here because I met a very special woman and wanted to have some time to get to know her better. I had some great western friends here as well. While I had a good time, I can't recommend Davao or the Philippines in general as a place to spend much time. The people are awesome and English is widely spoken but overall the food is deplorable (which is surprising for asia), its fairly dirty, there's a complete lack of architecture and design, and too be honest I never found any culture at all. I kept thinking that I was missing something but after more than six months I can say that shopping malls are the center of culture in the Philippines and that should say it all.

A very nice place to live if you want a peaceful and near beaches. Taxi drivers are honest so no worries if you want to go places to places. Food are so inexpensive and lots of fresh seafoods to buy. Fruits are everywhere and so cheap also. Jeepnies are the number transportation here. people are very accommodating and very welcoming.
