RANDOM PICTURES AROUND DAVAO CITY BY NIGHT

One of the reasons why Davao City is a good place to visit is of its low crime incidents. Davao has the friendly community, and is known to be typhoon free because the city is surrounded with mountains. These qualities make Davao City as one of the best tourist destinations in the Philippines.

Davao is also one of the colored nightlife cities in the Philippines. There are many establishments and structures around the city. Malls and hotels are scattered and its vibrant color of lights surrounded the big city.

While I do think it's still premature for Davao to have a thread, I do think it has a better skyline than some of the smaller cities who have threads as well
I think its not premature at all.... the skyline, though still lacking of density and talls, is pretty decent for a developing city.

BTW

I would like to suggest posters to resize big photos to smaller one because it could be hard to download all the big photos in a single page......

I would like to resize them but it's hard to appreciate the buildings if the pictures were smaller, plus other threads have similar sized pictures. I think a 1000x600 is good enough but lets limit 1-2 pictures per post. This is an international thread, so I guess we should try and post pictures of better quality :)
