Exploring Dumaguete

Dubbed as the City of Gentle People, the city of Dumaguete truly earned this nickname. Dumaguete is the largest city in the province of Negros Oriental, Philippines.  It is famous in the country because of its most popular delicacy, the silvanas, and is famous on the entire world because it is where the Silliman University is located.

However, there is more to be seen in Dumaguete. We have listed a couple of things to do here and sights to be seen.

1.) Rizal Boulevard Promenade


Named after the country’s national hero, Jose Rizal, the Rizal Boulevard Promenade is the city’s center for activities. During early in the morning, it is full of joggers and hikers. During night, it is filled with barbecue vendors for those who want to eat grilled food by the beach. It is also filled with music from bands from different restaurants all over the strip.

2.) Motorized Tricycle


To get around the city, you will be riding the motorized tricycle. This is the main mode of transportation in Dumaguete City. Just a heads up, there are no cabs in the city. Tricycles can fit up to 8 people and the fare is really cheap. Within the city destination would only cost you 20 pesos or around 45 cents in American currency. One good thing about the city is there is no traffic at all.

3.) Silliman University


Established in 1901, the Silliman University is the first American university in the entire Asian continent. This university was named after a retired American philanthropist and businessman, Dr. Horace Silliman. Dr. Silliman who came from Cohoes, New York, initially gave $10,000 to start the elementary school for boys. It was in 1910 that the institution began accepting college students.

4.) Dumaguete Cathedral and Belfry



The Dumaguete Cathedral or also known as St. Catherine of Alexandria Church was constructed between 1754 and 1756, making it the oldest stone church in the entire province. As for the bell tower, it was constructed during the Spanish colonial period in the year 1811. The bell tower was designed to warn the people of Dumaguete of Muslims going to the area to take slaves.

5.) Food




If you ask a Filipino what they can say about Dumaguete, they will probably talk about the food. The food is not just super delicious, it is super cheap! From American, to Mexican or local, they really capture the true taste of each dish. Restaurants like Casablanca Delicatessen, Casa de Coco Amigos and the famous Sans Rival Bistro can be found along the Rizal Boulevard.

6.) Apo Island



Apo Island is the diver’s paradise. To get here, just go to the city pier and take a small boat to the island. The travel time is approximately 40 minutes. This volcanic island has a total area of 12 hectares and is home to thousands and thousands of marine life. If you wish to get away from the city for a little while, then this is the place to be. You can snorkel, scuba dive or engage in other water sport activities. There are also resorts in the island just in case you decide to stay overnight.
