Home The Publisher

Hello and Welcome!

My name is Jeffrey Wee, and I am the Publisher and Editor in Chief of Best of Davao™ Magazine.

While the Best of Davao™ Magazine is new, launched in May 2015, it is based on many years of experience and years of preparation prior to our launch. I am excited to introduce the Best of Davao™ Magazine to you now.

I am a native of Davao and have spent my entire life here, went to school here, and graduated in Ateneo de Davao University. I am also both an entrepreneur and the manager of an established business since year 2008, so I understand the needs of consumers and those of business owners in a competitive market.

I love the Davao people, the local restaurants, street food, festivals, arts, and our exciting nightlife, and I am proud of our city and what it offers to residents, visitors, and tourists. I know that when one looks long enough, one can find many examples of admirable and outstanding people, reputable businesses, interesting places, excellent food, and great entertainment.

You could just say that I love Davao!

The Reason for Best of Davao Magazine?

Davao is a big city, with a metro population of over 1,000,000 people, many diverse neighborhoods, countless small businesses, and many organizations.  It can be difficult to know who or what is the best available in such a large city, especially with so many choices.

So, we created Best of Davao™ Magazine to help both local residents and visitors to Davao, quickly and easily find the very best of People, Places, Businesses, Groups, Food, Entertainment, Professionals, and Services in Davao. So far, my team has created more than 800+ Best of Davao™ Contest Categories from which any reader of our free online magazine can learn who the local Davao consumers voted as the best in Davao.

Our Mission?

The Best of Davao™ Magazine and our multiple Best of Davao™ Contests are focused on finding and honoring those People and Businesses that make Davao such a great place to live, work, and visit.

Our Goals?

We are creating a unique and valuable new free online source of information for Davao consumers and businesses. Whether you read our magazine using a laptop, tablet, or your smart phone, you will always have free access, 24 hours a day, to valuable information, money-saving tips, and lists of the most highly regarded people, businesses, and places in Davao. We also hope to enrich your life by introducing you to great entertainment and helpful tips for living a better life in Davao.

It Takes a Team!

This is a very big task and I cannot do it alone. So I have created an outstanding team of experienced and highly skilled people including: world-class advertising and marketing experts, website designers, social media experts, writers, photographers, shoppers, connoisseurs, local experts, and advisors from many fields.

Together, with the help of the many consumers in Davao who know where to find the best, we will produce the most valuable and comprehensive list of the Best of Davao.™ We have started that with our unique 800+ Best of Davao™ Categories.


Are you a Business Owner, CEO, or a Professional?

A Big Tip for Business Owners, CEOs, and Professionals!

Our most important big tip: Look over the list of the 800+ Best of Davao™ Categories  and make sure your business is listed in each of the appropriate categories as a nominee.  Simply choose a category and click on it to see the currently nominated businesses.   Be aware that your business could potentially qualify in several categories in our annual Best of Davao™ Contest and your business could also win in several “best of” categories.
