Dumaguete City, Negros Oriental

Dumaguete City

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 🙂
