Dumaguete City – the capital of Negros Oriental, aka “The City of the Gentle People”. People also call it the “university city” because there are four universities in the area – we got to visit Silliman University. Aside from visiting the city, a lot of tourist come here because it’s much easier to go to Oslob, Cebu from here instead of flying into Cebu City – more about that in my next blog!
This was my second time in Dumaguete, I explored the city and ate my heart out! Click the link below to see places where you can eat and places to visit while you’re in here 🙂
The Angkor Wat temple complex is among the most photographed spots in the world, with its distinctive structure enough to tell anyone you’ve been to Cambodia. However, the temple isn’t the only thing worth dropping by.
On my last day in Melbourne I spent half the day at Melbourne Zoo (click here to read about it!) and the other half of the day was shopping and a quick visit to the National Gallery of Victoria. It’s in Melbourne’s CBD and entrance is free so I thought I’ll go check it out for a little while.

On one of my free days in Melbourne, my friend, her family and I went for a visit at the Royal Botanic Gardens Melbourne. I LOVEEEE flowers so it was so nice to wander around the garden, take pretty photos with the flowers and just enjoy the scenery. Luckily it was a beautiful day, the weather was cool and the sun was shining bright. Also, entrance is free here which is great! Hehe.

While I was in the Melbourne CBD, I went to check out the Queen Victoria Market. I loved walking around the food section of the market. All the food looked so delicioussss, especially the baked desserts! I definitely had to pick up a few snacks as well as some souvenirs to bring back to my family and friends.
If you’re ever in Melbourne I highly recommend you stop by even just for a quick stroll! Click the link below to read more. 🙂
On my last full day in Melbourne, I met up with my friends from New Zealand and we spent half the day exploring Melbourne Zoo. I was excited to see a Koala hehe. Unfortunately when we passed by the Koala section he/she was way up in the tree and I couldn’t get a good photo with one, but at least I saw a little glimpse hehe. It was a lot of walking around but it was a good day! Click the link below to read more 🙂
Way back in December of last year I flew from Manila to Melbourne via Cebu Pacific. It was my first time flying that route, click the button below to read more about my experience!
