Magsaysay Fruit Stands

A visit to Magsaysay is sure to impress even the most seasoned traveller - the place teems with colorful stands where some of the most succulent and fragrant exotic fruit is sold at more-than-reasonable prices. It's the perfect place to try the notoriously aromatic durian.


Shopping in Davao is a serious affair and a collection of huge, impressive multi-floored malls that have emerged in recent years proves the point effortlessly. For a fine selection of local and international brand boutiques, visit the Abreeza Mall, and do not skip the Aldevinco Shopping Center for some of the beast deals on "pasalubong" (a Filippino word referring to gifts and souvenirs brought to loved ones from foreign lands). Davao has some fabulous markets, too, where everything from fresh produce to jewellery and crafts can be found. Haggling is acceptable.
