A Safe Home. In 2015, Davao City ranked 5th as the Safest Country in the World and recently ranked 2nd in Southeast Asia having a Safety Index Rate of 72.50%. The city boasts the respect for unity in diversity among its culture, heritage, and people.
Its constituents are mostly Visayan – born, raised, and migrants. Few knew that the rest of the population are indigenous people belonging to various ethnic groups. You’ve heard it right, the city nurtures eleven (11) distinctive ethnic tribes from its islands to highlands! Let’s take a glimpse of this window of unity and friendship. There are six (6) Moro Tribes namely Iranun, Kagan, Maranao, Sama, Tausug and Maguindanaon, and five (5) Lumad Tribes known as Klata-Guiangan, Matigsalog, Ovu-Manuvo, Tagabawa, and Ata. An annual festivity is dedicated every March to celebrate and highlight their very own culture and heritage – Araw ng Dabaw.

World Class Produce. Aside from its bountiful harvest of Durian and Mangosteen, Davao has been internationally known for its world-class chocolates.

At Malagos Chocolate, they produce chocolates from seeds to bars done right in their farm – from the unsweetened to the sweetest and darkest chocolates. This bittersweet delight is a multi-awarded product with recent recognition from the 2019 International Chocolate Awards (Asia-Pacific) and the 2019 Academy of Chocolate Awards (United Kingdom).
