Hi Davao Traveler,
The month of March has always been super busy in Davao. A lot of people are coming in from all over the place:
- from the nearby towns and cities
- from the different parts of the Philippines
- and of course, there are the tourists and foreigners
They all want to have fun here in Davao. They all know that March is a special month in Davao.
March 16 is Araw Ng Dabaw, but the fun seems to span the whole month of March.
This particular event attracts a lot of people into the city. And this implies that:
- 🙂 Businesses will wearing their smiley faces
- 🙁 Security forces of the government will be even more watchful
- 😉 You and me – we’ll have some stuff to enjoy
And as expected DavaoTraveler.com will see a lot of web traffic coming in. Actually, we already saw a spike in the number of website visitors since the beginning of March.
If you have been here for a number of times, you may have noticed that in the past months or so, we experienced reaching our bandwidth limit. Now, Exceeding A Bandwidth Limit is a technical term which means we have so much visitors than we expected. It’s a little frustrating on the part of the website visitors, but let us assure you that it’s doubly frustrating on our part.
Starting March 2011, we promise it’s not going to happen anymore. We’re moving to a new server with no bandwidth limit.
To this end, we would like to inform our website visitors to please bear with us as we make a few tweaks between the two different servers, transferring our files and databases.
It’s like we’re moving to a new house. But think about how Superman will do it. It’s going to be very quick! You may not even notice it. But if you do, please understand that we are in maintenance mode. Count with your fingers and your toes… and we’ll be up again before you finish counting to twenty.
On a more serious note, we are also announcing a few changes to the website. Here are some we have in mind.
Web Design – What you are seeing here was the original design since 2007. We want to show you something different and better looking.
More Hotels and Resorts – We have been contacted by small hotel and resort owners to have their hotels listed on this website. Yes, there are newer ones popping up all over the city. We want to include them all, of course.
Events In Davao – A lot of visitors have requested that we include the events happening in Davao. We agree, it’s a relevant topic.
So, that’s it for now.
And remember: We’re moving to a new server very, very soon. Please bear with us.
Have fun in Davao,
