It’s August once more and time for  Davao City’s annual Kadayawan festival.  Kadayawan is derived from the Mandaya term “madayaw”, which means   valuable, superior or beautiful and used as a greeting.  Today,  it’s loosely used in the urban language as an expression that something is of value or beautiful.

This month long festival, used as an excuse to party endlessly during my younger years has been replaced with my desire to learn about our culture more.  And I was more than happy to discover that the city has a comprehensive website that lists all the great activities the city has to offer at www.kadayawan.com.

We will be expecting droves of tourists in this month long festival to experience Kadayawan, party, go beach hopping, water rafting and to seek a new adventure.  See you here in Davao guys!   And for those who are budget conscious, we hope to see you here at the Davao Imperial Hotel.
