Davao is the understated, laid-back, Southern capital of the Philippines, a surprise package on an island that suffers from its fair share of bad press. Mindanao might be the domain of Muslim separatists but this town surrounded by natural beauty of aquamarine waters and the soaring Mount Apo is a safe best.
