Largest City in the Philippines

Davao City is the largest city in the country. Its land area covers 2,212 square kilometers. Most of these areas, however, are distributed as forests, coconut groves and rice fields. In comparison, Metro Manila covers only 636 square kilometers.

Davao City lies at the mouth of the Davao River near the head of Davao Gulf. It encompasses about 50 small ports in its commercial sphere. Davao has large banana plantations, whose produce are exported to Japan and other countries. The city also boasts of a modern international airport. Puerto Princesa City, a chartered city of Palawan province, is disputing Davao City's title. It claims to have a total land area of 2,539 square kilometers encompassing 66 barangays.

Hoy vergel!!! Davao is undeniably more beautiful compared to Bohol. It's so ridiculous to find Tagbilaran among top 5 cities in the Philippines. Shame on you!!!

Davao is not only the largest city in the Philippines but also "THE LARGEST CITY IN THE WORLD" in terms of land area. If I may correct you.:)

If I'm not mistaken, "DAVAO CITY IS THE LARGEST CITY IN THE WORLD IN TERMS OF LAND AREA". I like DAVAO CITY it's so livable place to me, beautiful place, clean,and I fell so very free!!!

Kurt said...

Actually, New York City's land area is 8800 sq. km. which means that it's 4 times as big as Davao. Therefore it's not the largest city in the world, IF I MAY CORRECT YOU.

hahaha

Davao is an ideal and practical beautiful City worthy of being called a home. Davao is my destination for my retirement for its relatively peaceful, less traffice, strong local economy, world class clean drinking water (2nd cleanest water in Asia), strong-willed politicians, relatively cheap cost of living and very friendly climate in the whole year season. I like Davao not because of its big size land area but because of its beatiful environment, economy and typhooned free area.

A reply for anonymous Puerto Princesa geek: P.Princesa's nature is undeniably beautiful. The beach is clean(talking about Honda Bay) and has amazing white sand. But with no offense, pls don't compare your city to Davao City. Coz for me, i don't even see any beauty with in your city.Honestly, I can simply estimate the area of the urbanized part of ur city. Magnify it with 100X and that's Davao City.

Davao is largest city in the world but now it is divided into 3 Regions davao del sur, davao del norte,davao del oriental , why is it regions? cuz davao is like a tiny country.
example davao is a country and like philippines it is divided in regions and so is davao, and the capital city is davao city and it is related in singapore wich is its capital city is the same name of its country

let me correct the 8,683sq.km of New york city it is not the New york city it's for new york metro. New york city has only 1,213sq.km smaller than the 2,444sq.km of Davao city.

therefore, DAVAO is the largest city in the world !!!!!

Davao might not be a perfect city but it is livable. All comes in discipline, e.g. waste segregation, no smoking policy, traffic enforcement, and a lot more. Davao City does not only boast of its beauty but also its attitude. That's why Davao is DaWOW! :D

It's not the largest of the world but one of the largest :)
