Davao is a sportsman's dream paradise. One can play golf or tennis, go diving or fishing and enjoy spelunking or mountain climbing.

Diving. Davao Gulf dive trips can be arranged through Scuba Davao (c/o Fishpenn Davao, Anda St. Davao City Tel. 62812), Coral Reef Resort, Paradise Island Beach Resort, or Davao Insular Intercontinental Inn (For addresses and telephone numbers, refer to section on Accommodations). Popular sites are around Samal and Talicud Islands for beautiful corals, drop offs and sea life-filled slopes. In front of the former Aguinaldo Pearl Farm off the western shore are World War II shipwrecks. Off the gulf 's northeast section are the Ligid Islands made up of Big Cruz and Small Cruz. These are rimmed by narrow coral shelves and a few pinnacles. The more adventurous can go to Nangan Bay on the east side of the gulf. Here are more corals, fish and sharks. It is possible to dive year round, though March till July would be the best time.

Golf. Davao is a favorite golf destination. Lanang Golf and Country Club in the heart of the city, (Tel. 75952) is an 18hole layout in a plantation setting with challenging situations. It has a clubhouse, restaurants, tennis court, golf sets and caddies. Apo Golf and Country Club, located in Dumoy (l l km south Tel. 81944), is an 18-hole championship course with views of Mt.

New Davao City Golf Club in Matina (3 km south Tel. 81845) is a 9-hole course with golf sets for rent, caddy service, a clubhouse and canteen.

Climbing Mount Apo takes four days. There are many trails so climbers often ascend and descend through different routes to see more of the place. Before climbing, contact the Department of Tourism Office in Davao (Magsaysay Park Complex, Tel. (82) 221-0070/221-6955) or the Mt.

As with most Asian countries, the staple food in the Philippines is rice. It is most often steamed and served during meals.

Leftover rice is often fried with garlic to make sinangag, which is usually served at breakfast together with a fried egg and cured meat or sausages.
