Understanding Curfew Laws in Davao


Without acting like a killjoy, Davao City imposes a few curfew policies to best serve its citizens.

Filipinos are big fans of singing so videokes are a popular pastime. Yet to neighbors it can be an annoying disturbance. That is why a curfew on loud videoke is imposed at this time.

10PM until 5AM
This curfew is for unescorted minors (18 and below). Such young ones are supposed to be asleep at home, doing their homework or prepare for school the following day.

Liquor sales are permitted until 1am. This is intended so that adults won’t get too intoxicated and get sick with hangover the following morning.
