Davao City Map: Districts, Barangays, Roads

Are you a true-blooded Dabawenyo? How familiar are you with the places around Davao? Can you guide a total tourist when he asks you for a direction of a specific street?

Well, test yourself by answering some of the questions below.

1. The following are District names in Davao, except ______.

a) Buhangin
b) Matina
c) Baguio
d) Toril

2. Bago Gallera belongs to ______ District in Davao City.

d) Paquibato

3. Which school (main campus) in Davao city is not located in the downtown area?

a) San Pedro College
b) Brokenshire College

If your answer to questions 1, 2 and 3 are b, c, and b, respectively, pat yourself at the back for you had just a perfect score! You have a good grasp of Davao’s geography. Well, as far as those three questions can tell.

    I’m originaly from Davao City, I was born there in Piape Quezon Blvd. I’ve been away for so long 26 yrs.I visited my home town twice only, the last time I visit Davao that was 16 years ago. I still have my brother and sisters living in Blvd. I guess my old home town has improve a lot, all those big shopping mall wasnt sprouted yet when I was there for a visit,but I remember they’re tearing down all those old buildings on J.P.Laurel Ave. and the old Boy Scout Building and all the old building in MAtina area. I guess its about time for me to visit back my old home town again Davao City.

  1. [...] I am inviting everyone who reads my blog particularly those who are based in Davao city to visit Toril this December. No, I am not throwing a party (lol). I am inviting you to see Purok San Roque here in Daliao, Toril. Residents of Purok San Roque have been participating in “Dayan-Dayan sa Barangay” annual competition and adorn their homes and the streets with beautiful Christmas outdoor lighting.
