« on: March 18, 2008, 01:22:08 AM »
Is anyone familiar with Calinan?  I am gonna purchase some farmland there shortly.  I have family in Davao that are my eyes and ears there however if someone has any input about living as an expat in Davao or Calinan I would appreciate it!
Thanks ,  Robert Smith    Florida, USA

My wife is from Calinan and we live in Davao proper. I\'ve only been to Calinan a couple of times to visit her parents and I\'ve been singularly unimpressed with the place. There\'s nothing much there at all and I doubt that many (perhaps any) foreigners live there. For whatever it\'s worth, my advice is to live in Davao itself, which is only about 30 minutes by car from Calinan, so you can visit whenever you like. I\'ve lived in Davao for about five years and I really like the city. If you need any specific information, please feel free to send me an email.
