One of the best bar in Dumaguete City | I was able to take a short trip here before heading to Siquijor Island for a beach bumming experience. Seafood indulge with a great view of the sea, really nice restaurant quite from down the boulevard through but would definitely recommend. By night, the bar is great, the music, the cheap foods and very accommodating staff. The outdoor setting and tree house view deck is always fun, where you can really relax while eating. I always love to visit this very interesting and inspiring place. Also a good place to hang out with big group of friends. Here's the address: Flores Avenue Piapi, Escano Beach, Dumaguete City. Contact them at (035) 225-3536. Happy Trip Everyone - Bisayang Manlalakbay Around the Philippines.

A must-try food in Dumaguete City along Rizal Boulevard. The store is located 5-7 minutes away from Siliman University and the sea port. | Definitely worth visiting at least once because they have a nice selection of delicious cakes, drinks, meals and their famous Silvanas at Php 130 per box while everything is extremely cheap are best to bring home (pasalubong) with good service and cafe ambiance inside. The interiors were also very nice with a good view of Rizal Boulevard through their windows and the area is inspired to santorini-greece because of the blue and white colors. A good place to splurge on your guilty pleasure of eating sweets and tempting your taste buds with delectable desserts. I brought 3 boxes to my family. They wrap it in a foil and manila paper and put it in a box to make sure the dessert will not melt easily. Your trip in Dumaguete City wouldn't be complete without a visit to Sans Rival Bistro alomg Rizal Boulevard. They also have branches in Robinsons Place Dumaguete City, so very accessible indeed. I won't hesitate to recommend this store.
When I hear the word Dumagueten City in Negros Oriental, it basically equates to Siliman University because of the world premier institution and known to be the city of gentle people. A must go to place in Dumaguete City | After visiting the historic museum, I immediately go to their main ground and took photos. You can feel a city of Spanish and American because of the ambiance and architectures inside. Siliman University is maybe the only and oldest protestant university in a largely Catholic country like the Philippines.I also proceeded to Siliman University Church which is just across the street. I wasn't able to tour the entire land area of the university and the ground are nicely kept clean and looks like a great place to study. I like those big acacia trees with wide branches and the lush greens of grass. Not to mention, the old buildings around the place gave me off that mysterious old world and old soul vibe. Thanks Siliman University! Happy Trip Everyone - Bisayang Manlalakbay Around The Philippines.
I was able to get inside the museum that day. Upon arriving the main gate of the university, I surrender my ID before entering the museum premises. It is open to the public with a minimal fee of Php 30.00 for local & Php 40.00 for foreign guest and this area is located facing the Roxas Boulevard and into the sea. Their guides are very kind and engaging to the visitors, look like they enjoy what they are doing, story telling and are proud of their province's rich culture and history. Guys, strictly no pictures is allowed on the second floor of the museum. The displays are interesting and give information about old ancient ceramics, old currency, medicinal plants, beautiful historic photos and paintings, weapons used in the past, archaeological findings all over the Philippines and other more old pieces. A must see place in Dumaguete City and you'll end up with lots of stories and history.
