My home town 🏡 💙. Cagayan de Oro (CDO) is one of the more peaceful + prosperous cities in the Philippines. This place is fondly called the City of Golden Friendship. She sits in the northern part of Mindanao, and acts as a hub linking other surrounding smaller cities and towns.
What to do in CDO? Well, for starters I’d highly recommend you to try out the rapids of the Cagayan De Oro river 🌊🌊🌊. Yes, whitewater rafting is fun and something that should be in your bucket list. Take it from a Kagay-anon.
The kinilaw (a ceviche-like dish) 🐟 is also one thing you might want to whet your palates in. CDO’s take on this traditional Filipino food is very unique but does not get the popularity it deserves.
