  1. First of all congratulate for your great post and I really impressed about the information regarding Malls of Davao City. Today, malls are not just for shopping. They have evolved into places where you can enjoy a variety of activities. Moreover, malls are economic symbols of a City. It is true that this was very luxurious mall and we know that we can enjoy shopping and visiting. Thanks for sharing this and keep on posting.

  2. I want to visit any malls in Davao and I think on these photos are a nice place for a relaxation too. Thanks! :)

  3. I have cousin living in Davao for 12 years, they want me to visit them and they told me that there are some malls in Davao that you would not forget and you would always want to go back there.

    1. Hi, Haidie de Castro! I share your cousin's sentiments regarding the malls in Davao City. However, it is not so much of the shopping malls that would make you come back but it is the people of Davao - the Dabawenyos. They are all smiles and very accommodating to visiting guests to the city, particularly to foreign tourists; a kind of warm hospitality that I have yet to experience in some parts of the country.

      I am not a Dabawenyo, but was born and raised in Manila where I presently reside. The best years of my life have been spent in Davao City when work had brought me there in 1999 until my retirement, and today I always aspire to be able to take up residence again, hopefully in the not too distant future, in Davao City I call "Home".

  4. hats off to you Man! :)

  5. our place is the safe city in the philippines
