This one is a bit tricky for the first time visitors and travelers in Davao City.
They are not written on the store or business signages, but people refer to the old street names in downtown Davao as they would an old familiar friend.
You are waiting for a jeepney and you have the most fancy map of Davao. The jeepney hangs “Claveria” on its signboard, but there is no Claveria on your map.
“Am I already standing right along the Claveria Street?”, you ask yourself in silence. If you are a total stranger, it’s hard to tell whether you are right or wrong. And this can feel a bit annoying.
