DOT TO DEVELOP DAVAO CITY’S SUMMER CAPITAL INTO ECO-TOURISM SITE

 The Department of Tourism (DoT) will develop an eco-tourism destination in Marilog District, considered as Davao City’s ‘Summer Capital” due to its cool climate.

The Buda Tourism Development Plan, said DoT-Davao Region director Roberto Alabado, will cover the barangays of Salumay and Baganihan.

The two barangays, located at the highest point of Marilog which overlooks Mt. Apo, are in the Buda area of the upland district. Buda, coined from the first letters of Bukidnon and Davao,   is the name of the last Marilog barangay towards Bukidnon.

Alabado said the Buda tourism project would be coordinated with the National Commission on Indigenous Peoples (NCIP), Davao City Tourism Office, Department of Environment and Natural Resources and the private sector.

Alabado said Buda is known for its cold climate, resorts, restaurants, and the indigenous communities.
