See the new Museo Dabawenyo and marvel at the awe-inspiring view of the city from the hilltop Jack's Ridge Resort. You will also visit People's Park, which features a mini-forest and large sculptures representing the many indigenous groups of Mindanao and continue onto Davao Crocodile Park, where you will meet not only crocodiles, but different kinds of animal species.
