Top 10 Most Progressive Cities In Mindanao

The Top Ten

1 Iligan City

A city with multicultural diversity living in peace and unity. Like said, it's a rising power economy of Mindanao even hailed as one of the wealthiest cities in the Philippines in 2016. An urbanised city with potential investments on infrastructures, real estate, agriculture, and several industries.

Rising economy

First Class City "A"

Industrial city of the south

2 Cagayan de Oro City

Good Governance and the Gate Way to the Land of Promise! And it will become a Metro Cagayan de Oro on 2025! The City of Golden Friendship!

The best so far in Mindanao Cities.

Good urban planning.

A progressive city in mindanao.

3 Pagadian City

Pagadian City is a beautiful city of eastern Mindnanao, the people are so charming when it comes of hospitality, more over the unique transportation they have that so attractive to the eye of those people who visited the town.
The city is independently progressing because of the business like farming, fishing, not just that but the local products.
the region is so peaceful decade along and the beaches are so seductive as if you don't want to go out side the other place's
and when it comes to food you must be graving in seafood fest.
Visit and see the town :-)

I'm so proud to be pagadian!

4 Davao City

Aside from it's strict measure of safety and security, the unprecedented condominiums, commercial centers, IT hubs and a lot more signifies that the city is the top most progressive and competitive city.

"Tourist would always prefer in a place where good food and warm culture exist. that's BUTUANON, come, visit and experience, whats with BUTUAN CITY.

7 General Santos City

Good food, good city urban planning... wide roads airport are there also port.

Transportation sucks, I would rate their bad transportation with 4.0/10. There is no definite fare for their transportation means. Some tricycles drivers are abusive and undisciplined, taxi rates are fixed depending on your destination. Jeepneys and multicabs are the most reliable mode of transportation in the city if they are available in your barangay/subdivision.

Most of Mindanao's largest shopping centers can be found here.

Very good urban planning, I think it is the best in Mindanao.

8 Tagum City

Tagum is the cleanest city in the province of Davao del Norte.

9 Valencia City

The City of the Golden Harvest

1. Center of Trade and Commerce of Bukidnon
2. Despite from not being close to an HUC, without airport or seaport, and not the provincial center, Valencia is harnessing its man power that adds trade and commerce into its annual income.
3. The Economic powerhouse of Bukidnon even before it turned from a town to an urbanized city.

10 Koronadal City

A third class component city, and center of socio-cultural activities of the province.
