Bajada

Ask a local in Davao City where JP Laurel Avenue is and chances are he or she might not know where it is right away. But ask that same person about Bajada and the opposite will probably take place.

Bajada, officially known as JP Laurel Avenue, is one of the busiest, most commercialized areas in Davao. Home to malls, hotels, and restaurants, Bajada caters to the entertainment, leisure, and retail needs of its residents and tourists.

Are shopping, dining, or going to the cinema your idea of relaxation? Mall goers have not one, not two, but four options to go to for that day out with family or friends. Victoria Plaza Mall, Gaisano Mall of Davao, Abreeza, and SM Lanang Premier are all located along JP Laurel Avenue and have numerous choices for any kind of shopping or food trip.

Dining options in the area are not limited to the restaurants and cafes found in these malls. Head to Blue Posts Boiling Crabs and Shrimps for a seafood extravaganza that can get messy but is worth every peso. Feast on succulent lechon (whole pig roasted on a spit) at Azon’s Boneless Lechon. Can’t decide what cuisine to try for lunch or dinner? Go for fusion instead at The White House Fusion Cuisine and Wine Lounge.

In the mood for a different kind of leisure or entertainment? Try your hand at the escape rooms at Mysterescape and see if you can solve the puzzles, piece clues together, and beat the time. Or if you prefer something more peaceful and relaxing, you can avail of the spa services at Thai Boran or Spa Valley Sauna.

The multiple hotels in the area make it accessible and convenient for tourists to reach these places. Hotels such as Seda Abreeza and Park Inn by Radisson Davao can be found adjacent to malls. Villa Margarita Hotel, Tune Hotel Davao, and the Grand Regal Hotel are other choices to consider when visiting Bajada.
