Lovely Dumaguete!

City of gentle people or Charm city of the south is what had been known for the capital of Negros Oriental which is the Dumaguete City. A very blessed province because it is surrounded by beautiful island of Cebu, Siquijior & Bohol when you could found the best diving site for marine paradise that they rightfully are priding of.

Apo Island is constantly rated among the top 10 dive destinations in the world, so that alone is worth a visit to Dumaguete. There are also a number of attractive marine sanctuaries up and down the coastline from Dumaguete, Some of them you will have to pay a fee to use, especially the ones in the Dauin area.

Aside from the nature the Siliman University is located as well in the province which the oldest university in Asia.
Feel the cool breeze of air while at the Dumaguete Boulevard is the perfect place in the city to take relaxing and unwinding.
The tasty and sweetened Sans Rival cakes is a must taste when you’re in Dumaguete City.

Sans Rival is a multilayered cake of crisp meringue filled with buttercream and crushed cashews, very popular and quite expensive at home.
Sans Rival is literally translated to as "without rival"
Also known as Napoleon layered cake.

Hand made novelty accessories is cool souvenirs that you could buy as well.
For me is undoubted to consider the Dumaguete City as the perfect to live because of gentle people, closeness to nature and simple lifestyle.
