I describe this location as an open market. It's where usually "fresh" beef, chicken, fish, sea food, fruits and vegetables are sold. You can also but lechon there. We got a roasted pig we took with us to Paradise Island.
This is not far from the Bogobo House Hotel. It's maybe a 5-7 minute cab ride.
This place was complete organized chaos. It was a lot of fun. The smell was pretty bad because of all the raw meat hanging and fish there, but if you can get past the smell, you might actually enjoy yourself and find a good deal or two.
Considering the size of Davao, I'm sure there are more than one of these markets in the city, but this is the only one I'm familiar with. They are full of people and energy. Kids asking for money, and a chance to negotiate and haggle with every merchant. These markets are cash only so keep it secured and have a good time!

You could include this visit with a climb to Mt. Apo - but mind you, this iterinary is for experienced mountaineers only. But still you could do this visit on its own... its really worth it... I swear!!!
Tudaya falls must be the highest falls in the Philippines. I'm quite puzzled why this isn't as famous as it should be.. though glad so that it will continue to exist in its pristine (well almost) condition.
The falls is so big and strong and tall that you could feel droplets of water as far as maybe 50 meters away. You could also traverse the back of the falls and come out on the other side. While you are inside (behind) the falling waters, the wind and water splashing on you is so strong you will find it is a little difficult to breath - dont worry not difficult enough to suffocate you :) Its as if you are in the middle of a storm in a freshwater lake!!!!
The surroundings is also "Jurrasic Park" like. The leaves of plants are huge. You'll feel you were transported to a land before time.

Explore Camiguin. This enchanting island is rich in rugged beauty. It's main attraction is White Island, a barren island/shoal shaped like a letter 'C' about 500 meter of white sand. Tourists are ferried to and from the island by motorized banca(small fishing boat) with around 10mins travel time. Camiguin could be reached via a 30-minute highspeed ferry from Cagayan de Oro. From Manila, Cagayan de Oro is a little over an hour travel by plane or overnight ferry from Cebu City. Photo:Jessie Casabar **More on my Camiguin White Island Travelogue- CLick HERE**
