Hooray! Good News to travelers! Agoda.com -The preferred booking magnate of Filipinos offers Kadayawan Hotel Deals in Davao City to encourages more Pinoys and international travelers to experience Davao’s brightest festival. Agoda.com is Asia’s leading hotel booking site and part of Nasdaq-listed Priceline Group (Nasdaq: PCLN), today announced a selection of deals on hotels in Davao for the Philippines' Kadayawan Festival.
From now until the end of September, Kadayawan Festival brings a slew of vibrant cultural events to the city of Davao, and with it a unique opportunity for travelers to delve into ethnic Filipino culture and tradition. With origins as a harvest festival held by the indigenous tribes of the Davao province, Kadayawan began as a form of thanksgiving and is today the largest festival in the southern Philippines.
Unifying the different ethnicities of the Mount Apo region, the theme of Kadayawan 2012 is "Ten Tribes, One Vibe". Festivities include cultural performances, handicraft displays and stalls, live music concerts with traditional local street foods, arts and artifacts exhibitions, colorful parades, trade expos, sports events and more.
Aside from the myriad scheduled events of Kadayawan, Davao is the perfect destination for nature lovers. Adventure seekers can head to the hiking trails of Mount Apo, the Philippines' highest peak at nearly 3,000 meters. There are trails for all levels of fitness in the surrounding national parkland, and several that lead to the summit, where experienced trekkers can view Mount Apo's crater lake.
Vacationers looking for a more relaxed experience can head to Eden Nature Park or simply enjoy stunning regional panoramas from the high altitude restaurants and viewpoints of Jack's Ridge. For an exciting day out with the family, there's a crocodile breeding center not far from the city center, complete with animal enclosures and a butterfly park. A Philippine Eagle Center is also a great educational trip for all ages, housing this endangered species as well as other animals and raptors.
For an urban Davao experience, visitors will find plenty to do in Davao city. Historic architecture, cathedrals, Buddhist temples, and the People's Park give travelers a variety of different cultural aspects to explore. There is also a generous selection of modern malls in Davao, for those who can't pass up the possibility of finding a local sale.
