What should I pack when moving to Davao?

Answer this Question

We asked people living in Davao to list three things they wish they had brought and three they wish they had left behind. They responded...

"A lot of patience and lowered expectations. The Philippines is after all a developing/3rd world country. It takes a lot of head scratching and acceptance to live here but I still like and enjoy it. Just don't expect efficiency, fairness or sensibility among other things. It takes a while to adjust to the way things are done in the PI," wrote a member who made the move to Davao, Philippines.

"When moving to Davao, it is important to pack items that will help you adjust to the climate and lifestyle. Pack lightweight, breathable clothing that is suitable for the tropical climate. Bring a good pair of walking shoes, as well as a hat and sunglasses to protect you from the sun. Additionally, it is important to bring any necessary medications, as well as a first aid kit. Don't forget to bring a few items to make your new home feel like home, such as pictures, books, and other personal items. Finally, make sure to bring any important documents, such as your passport and visa," explained one expat living in Davao, Philippines.
