About eight bloggers from Singapore visited Davao City for a four-day familiarization tour.

The bloggers coming from lifestyle, travel, beauty, food and fitness were brought by Cebu Pacific and Nuffnang, a blog advertising agency. The delegation arrived by Monday (April 18) early dawn and will be leaving today (April 21) afternoon.

Department of Tourism-XI Regional Director Roberto Alabado III said the bloggers’ trip is a partnership between the public and private sector aimed at promoting Davao to their particular market, Singapore.

“We want them to experience Davao, most of these bloggers haven’t heard about Davao City. “ Alabado said.

  12. It looks like they had so much fun! Philippines are so beautiful and their people are incredibly nice. Probably the nicest in the world.
    One thing that I learned in the Philippines this winter is that when someone takes out a starfish from the water it dies. I would really want to spread this knowledge between the bloggers.

    1. yeah that's true... well some stubborn tourists even pull-out in the water (this time not starfish but baby whales!) ugh, it was so disturbing and sad

  13. I haven't heard but holy WOW there seems to be so much to do there - like swimming, white water rafting. I loved Singapore so I think this would be an awesome place for me :)

    1. Yeah, although many still would say that Davao is very far from Singapore (yeah I know what they mean)if we talk about skyscrapers, infrastructures, etc.

      But what these two cities in common are how they discipline the people are and how secured the place is. And I think that is something really COOL

  38. What fun they all had. I didn't realise that Davao is just like Singapore. I think Davao has more green, right?

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Hello Emily,

      I think Davao has more green areas because it is quite bigger in Singapore in terms of land area. But still Singapore is uber progressive. Davao City still have many years to reach that point of success.

      What makes them similar are the policies and rules people follows. We here in Manila are also very impressed by that.

  39. I'm wondering why you shared an April 2016 post but it's a travel post so I don't think anything change much. Plus the the place looked great and the activities are interesting. Hope I'm grave enough for most of them.
