Things to do in Davao
The Philippine city offers a wide range of outdoorsy, activities. You can do sky cycling on a cord at the massive Eden Nature Park, encounter wild animals from eagles and crocodiles to rare butterflies, or admire orchids and dense jungles surrounding the city.

After relaxing there you can visit Pasalubong Souvenir Center, where shopping for gifts for family and friends back at home is warmly recommended for the wide selection of goods.
Eden Nature Park
This mountain resort 3,000 ft above the sea level is 95 % man made, but does not seem artificial. It's a perfect place to go in quest for the perfect state of relaxation. Exotic flowers, birds and the cycling zipline guarantee the good balance of adventure and pleasant sights. At the end of the day it is a bliss to lay back in a hammock and smell the fresh mountain air.
Food and Restaurants
Fruit Tasting at Bankerohan Market
Like a pub crawl in Ireland, in Davao the most relevant crawl is that of fruits. Your trip won't be complete without a durian sample tour. You can eat it with cakes and ice creams and mix with fresh mango, marang, lanzones, pomelos, bananas... Hop on a jeepney and let it take you to the promised land of vitamin - meaning any fruit stand market in the city.
Vista View Restaurant
Exotic and delicious Filipino dishes can be enjoyed with the awe-inspiring view, overlooking Davao Gulf and Samal.
Pakfry is a Davao dish made of tuna tail, bbuntot, and the restaurant called Palovince Place has the best pakfry in the city. The dish goes through various cooking processes and the taste is succulant and texture is crunchy. The portion is a must try in the city.
