Largest City in the Philippines

Standard

Davao

Davao City is the largest city in the country. Its land area covers 2,212 square kilometers. Most of these areas, however, are distributed as forests, coconut groves and rice fields. In comparison, Metro Manila covers only 636 square kilometers.

Davao City lies at the mouth of the Davao River near the head of Davao Gulf. It encompasses about 50 small ports in its commercial sphere. Davao has large banana plantations, whose produce are exported to Japan and other countries. The city also boasts of a modern international airport. Puerto Princesa City, a chartered city of Palawan province, is disputing Davao City’s title. It claims to have a total land area of 2,539 square kilometers encompassing 66 barangays.

  2. well, largest city in terms of population ang quezon city, but in terms of land area, davao city with 2,212 sq.km.

    magbasa kang mabuti bugz uno.

  3. Hey bugs uno! You may be right for referring to the largest city in terms of POPULATION. But Davao has gained the reputation of being the largest in terms of land area for decades. Very young it may seem at 70, but Davao has topped in the latest survey of Asian Institute and Management (AIM) held in Makati City, as the MOST COMPETITIVE CITY IN THE PHILIPPINES. However, Quezon City ranks second followed by Makati City.

  4. As the admin of this blog, I want to thank all the readers here who value and understand what I have wrote about Davao City.

    To Bugz Uno >> Please read and understand first what this article is saying.

  5. please tell me just because it has the biggest land area but some are forests in Davao City and undevelop can be claimed the largest city?and for Quezon City it’s the population that makes them a largest city?i’m confuse!

  6. To make things clear:
    Biggest population : Quezon City
    Largest City : Davao City

    My post is referring to the LARGEST CITY in the PHILIPPINES. We are talking about the land area not the population.
    Largest city doesn’t refer to population as others believe. Largest city refers to the land area it covers.

    I hope this will help to make things clear.

  7. In case you don’t know, Davao is the largest metropolis in the country consisting Panabo and Tagum Cities and Island Garden City of Samal in Davao del Norte, Digos City in Davao del Sur and Davao City.

  8. bobo ka rin pala jaymart noh!… may sinasabi ba dito na ang DAVAO CITY ang largest city in the whole world?. she was saying that Davao City is the largest city in the PHILIPPINES.. and indeed DAVAO CITY is ONE of the LARGEST CITY in the WHOLE WORLD…

  9. HAICK… HINDI “LARGEST CITY ANG DAVAO” KUNDI >> “LARGEST CITY IN TERMS OF LAND AREA” LANG. PAG SINABING “LARGEST CITY”, IT PERTAINS MORE TO URBAN POPULATION. TAKE NOTE >> URBAN & POPULATION. IT DOES NOT PERTAIN TO THE TREES AND LAND AND FISHES AND TURTLES AND ANTS AND SO ON BLAH BLAH BLA…. HAICK

  10. Hahaiiiezt………meron talagang mga taong ewan..Come visit Davao and you’ll be surprised at its cleanliness, orderliness and vastness of the city. Just like any other cosmopolitan cities in Southeast Asia like Kuala Lumpur and Singapore, no wonder why Davao is a sprawling Metropolis.

  14. by land area?? DAVaO is the largest city? HOW COME?

    according to my research,

    DAVAO CITY — 2,444 km2 (943.6 sq mi)
    while PUERTO PRINCESA CITY of PALAWAN — 2,539.82 km2 (980.6 sq mi)

    lagi rin akong nanunuod ng news or shows at naririnig ko ay puerto princesa ng palawa ang pinakamalaking city dito sa pilipinas.

    ANO BA TALAGA ANG TOTOO??

    • tama! napanuod ko na rin sa jessica soho & rated k, kahit sa mel & joey.
      PUERTO PRINCESA ang largest city in the philippines by land area!
      pero nakakalito talaga dahil sa tuwing hahanapin mo ang largest city in the philippines ay davao city ang lumalabas, pero kung icocompare mo sa wikipedia, mas malaki nga ang puerto princesa!

      • nakumpara ko ang size ng dalawang lungsod, but i think they have the same huge land area… kase kinunan ko ng mga photo galing sa Google Maps ang dalawang lungsod… parang medyo same lng cla yata ehh…. based on my comparison, ito ang aking ma-record sa mga land area ng dalawang lungsod:

        1. Davao City: 2465 sqkm
        2. Puerto Princesa City: 2410 sqkm

        try nyo compare sa google.com kng nagkakamali ako…

  15. AS far as I know, Davao City still the largest city in terms of area as recognized, while puerto pincesa is not yet recognize as the largest city in terms of area..
    ..

  16. Davao City is the largest city in the country.

    According to wikipedia: Largest: Davao City, with an area of 2,433.61 km2. However, while some sources claim that Puerto Princesa covers an area of more than 2,500 km2, its officially recognized land area figure (according to IRA share calculation data) is 2,381.02 km2. Contrary to popular belief within the Philippines, Davao City does not hold the record of being the world’s largest city in terms of land area.
