(Bukidnon - Davao Highway)
Note the clouds in the background as if the highway sits afloat
While Baguio City in Benguet Province, north of Luzon island holds the distinction of being the "Summer Capital of the Philippines" because of it's cool weather all year round, wait until you see the entire stretch of the Bukidnon - Davao Highway called BUDA Road where you will find the weather, all year round, much cooler, and the air cleaner. After all, it is in Davao where you will find the country's highest mountain peak, the magnificent Mount Apo, and the surrounding mountain ranges higher in elevation than in any part of the Philippines.
"If a picture paints a thousand words . . . .", just like the old ballad says, then, let the images below speak for themselves. Oh, I love Davao City!
Soft and fluffy clouds quietly hover these mountain ranges
What a sight to behold!
The magnificent Mount Apo and its summit covered by dense clouds

The tall trees in the foreground are Pine trees
Crawling fogs in the area
An island in the sky

(The resort is one of the many top destinations in the area)
In Davao, if you want to feel the sun, the beach is just a few minutes away, whereas in Baguio City the nearest beach is in La Union Province. It is my firm hope that my fellow countrymen and foreign tourists alike will take a second look at Davao City and the countless wonders and magnificent sights it offers.
Davao City, an Island in the Sky . . . and indeed, from Islands to Highlands!
