Surprisingly Amazing TAGUM CITY

For a peculiar tourist like me, the Overland Transport Terminal, most popular as Ecoland Bus Terminal in Davao City is a haven for an unplanned tour to anywhere around Mindanao. Tourists will be delighted with the tight security and updated list of destinations plus travel time table posted on the board upon entering the terminal. Among the list of destinations, I opted to take the bus going to Tagum City and see what I can find. Tagum City is the capital of Davao Del Norte.

It took me just an hour to get there via Rural Bus and I was very surprised to discover how beautiful the city is. And one will never get lost.

Signage here and there, monuments and landmarks, and the awesome kilometers-long lineup of palm trees along the national highway greet everyone as you approach the city proper. I haven't seen anything like this in the entire country. I was not able to take pictures along the highway but I promise to take some next time.

Tagum is a peaceful city in a provincial setting with almost everything - hotels, malls, cozy restaurants, organized transport, wide cemented roads. There are a number of attractions in Tagum waiting for me to conquer in my second visit.

Jack's Ridge - For That Fun and Filling Davao Experience

What do I love most about Davao City?

Aaahhh...the food - delicious, fresh, affordable, and different ways of serving dishes almost everywhere. What could be more delightful than a fine dining experience with fresh surrounding air, great food, warm ambiance, beautiful songs to listen to and historical value? Jack's Ridge is the place. It is indeed a must-vist place in Davao City.

Located within Shrine Hills at Matina in Davao City, Jack's Ridge Resort offers a perfect spot wth the view of the entire Davao City. Right now, many people frequently go to this place to enjoy first-class accommodations and its delectable and mouthwatering dishes like sinigang, kinilaw, and grilled tuna.
