I like Matina Town Square, known to locals merely as "MTS" because it shows the soul of Davao. It is a complex of bars and restaurants, one of which has a live bands.

I liked it better when it was grassy and open. Now its all covered by tents and it looks old and not well-maintained. Go there for Aling Foping's Halo-halo or the Tuesday night cultural performance.

Now considered as a family oriented destination in Davao City. their main attraction is Tabuan which features different bands, and the place is surrounded by different bars and grills. Also two of the most popular fastfoods are here: Jollibee and McDonalds

It was used to be a live wire of the city. When we were there we actually disappointed because the real beauty of the place has covered by giant food chain and grocery store. Can't even flush the toilets. It was used to be to be the place where they showcase the night life of Davao. A place where they're... More
