    A relaxing place to do early morning walk or jog. Feel the sea air in the morning with noises of birds near the Bethel Hotel area. A short walk along the breakwater to kick-start your day. A visit during the evening will provide you a taste for the local street foods and occasional programs during festivals.

    Not too bad. But getting too touristy. It used to be easy to go-to, now it's got too much shops around it

    It was so refreshing to stay even at the view deck alone and marvel on the mountain, the lake and the foliage surrounding the restaurant on the deck. The food was good and very cheap.

    The boardwalk by the ocean is a nice place to relax. A few good restaurants right across the street and around the corner q couple of blocks is a shopping mall. Very nice people there compared to other towns I have visited. I do not I repeat do NOT recommend renting a scooter and driving in traffic there. No law enforcement and some roads turn from pavement to rock with no warning.

    I've been to a number of University Museums throughout the Philippines and this among the best - good size, updated facility, and well-lit. The Museum was established in 1970 by Dr. Hubert I. Reynolds, an American missionary member of the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) and former Anthropology professor in Silliman University, to house the collection of the Cultural Research Center that started in 1964. The collection is composed of archaeological items - which date back as early as 500-200 B.C - from previous excavation all over Negros and parts of Mindanao and collected ethnological items from the various indigenous groups from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao. Adult admission was p100 each.

    We climbed the second highest mountain in Negros Island! Our first stop was with the twin falls then we headed to our camp site which was in the Camp Rancho. The place was so nice and wide! We took a bath in the near river. The next morning we resumed our hike. We were able to stop at the sulfur vent (it was amazing!). Then we pitched out tent in front of Lake Nailig. We stop a bit to take our lunch then we resume hiking going to the peak. Sadly, when we arrived we weren't able to get some clearing due to bad weather. Anyways the hike was fun! 😊😊

    ..made us proud to know someone in our community offering his expertise, time, skills, and knowledge to us. Overall, it is a meaningful experience and looking forward to see ideas taking shape and happening. When you come by Dumaguete, make sure to visit Omoyon Bee Farm and BEE ready for a taste of pure honey from our very own kiwot (stingless and one of our native bees), sweet calamansi fruit (he got some tricks to show haha!), and many more. Thanks Rico!

    Located near my hotel, it is one of the attractions I visited. The Belfry and the beautiful Park are in the same vicinities.

    Inside this church are statues, beautiful altar, etc. I said my prayers before moving on.

    We had an excellent time here. Lots of slides and water features including a tipping bucket. Pirate ships. Small slides for little kids, bigger slides too. Big pool for swimming. Small spa pool. The 2 biggest slides had weight limits and i only went on lower one, top one looked dodgy.
    Also appreciated was the poolside bar where you can sit on a seat in the water and have a cold beer. Food was fine.
    We would come again

    What a small treasure house of finely crafted ornaments and usable items. If you want to dress up the display cabinet in your home anywhere in the world, these pieces will do so wonderfully!
    Make the trip to Bacong, only a short ride from the heart of Dumaguete. And tell your friends back home?

    It is quite easy to find this attraction due to its height. Near it is the Cathedral, Quezon Park, City Hall and the Fruit Market.

    I took several pictures here!
