Kadayawan Festival 2009

Kadayawan Festival
The weeklong celebration of Kadayawan Festival starts today. Almost all malls in Davao are celebrating with "huge" discount (up to 75%). Unfortunately, I'm out of budget.

The theme

"One People in Communion with the Earth (Nahiusang Katawhan Nakigdait sa Kalibutan)" is this year's Kadayawan Festival theme. The theme describes the unity of the people from various cultures in preserving our planet Earth.

Indak-Indak sa Kadalanan and Floral Float parade are just two of the activities of the annual celebration of Kadayawan Festival.

Where to stay in Davao?

Davao offers comfortable places for you to stay during this week-long celebration of Kadayawan Festival. For instance, you can have a good night's sleep at Eden Nature's Park after your exciting expedition in the city of Davao. The 95% man-made resort offers 40% off on rooms, as well as Mountain Villas. Or you can stay within the city in a five-star hotel, like Marco Polo Davao.


The culmination of the 24th Kadayawan 2009 will be on the 23rd of August. I'm fortunate enough to live in one of the Philippines's progressive cities—Davao. I can witness this colorful festival. But one thing is missing; the camera won't be available this week (huhuhu).
