The City of Cagayan de Oro (Cebuano Dakbayan sa Cagayan de Oro Filipino Lungsod ng Cagayan de Oro) abbreviated as CDO, CDOC or Cag. de Oro, lies along the northern coastline in the island of Mindanao, Philippines. It is the provincial capital of the province of Misamis Oriental, classified as a first class city. The city serves as the regional center and the most populous highly-urbanized city in Northern Mindanao (Region X). According to the 2007 census, the city has an estimated population of 553,996 people.Cagayan de Oro is a coastal city facing the Macajalar Bay. Several creeks and rivers run through the city. The southern portion of the city is dominated by hills, gorges, plateau and mountain ranges of Bukidnon Province. The city is known by many nicknames such as "Gateway to Northern Mindanao", "City of Whitewater Rafting and River Trekking", "ICT Goldmine of the Philippines" and "A City in Bloom, Blossom and in BOOM". Officially, Cagayan de Oro is known as "Dakbayan sa Bulawanong Panaghigalaay" or in English the "City of Golden Friendship". The phrase is part of the official city seal.The name "Cagayan" is derived from a lost, ancient sound that evolved into "Kagayan", "Karayan", "Kalayan" and others. These derivatives all mean "River". There are also other places in the Philippines with a "Cagayan" name. One must distinguish Cagayan de Oro from Cagayan Province in Northern Luzon and the Cagayan Islands in the Sulu Sea.[1]
