Before I ask this question, let it be known that this query is directed at those people who have neither visited Philippines, nor having heard of it. Now given that prelude, I am eager to ask this: what do you know about Mindanao? This region has suffered unpleasant stereotypes since the late 1990's to the earliest years of the second millennium. Because of its high Muslim population and some presence of local Islamic rebels, Mindanao is one of the areas in the world that was potentially black-listed especially during the US anti-terrorism campaign. I have to say, being a resident within Mindanao; I find those stereotypical judgments too harsh to be reasonable. I live in the safest city in the Philippines and you would not believe that it is found within the region most people thought to be quite unpopular for its safety. I am proud to present Davao City, and three among many other splendid natural tourist spots both local and foreigners have enjoyed visiting.
