  Davao City has abundant cultural heritages from various tribes. The most number of tribes in the Philippines lives in Davao City and the word Davao came from the phonetic blending of three Bagobo subgroups' names for the Davao River - "Davah, Dawaw, davah". This city has developed quickly as the center of trade, education, tourism, art, culture, etc. in the Southern Philippines. Additionally, the influx of foreigners increases because Davao City is safer than any other cities, thanks to the aggressive local government and strict legal system.
