I’ve been to Dumaguete a zillion times already and the place still never ceases to amaze me! In fact I’ve already wrote to blog post on Dumaguete City and Forrest camp, Dumaguete. For 2009 alone we went to Dumaguete twice. The first trip was sometime in August 2009. The second one was when we dropped by Dumaguete for our trip to Bayawan.
Everytime I go to Dumaguete, I continue to discover places to go that I’ve never been to before and food that I’ve never yet tasted. Dumaguete is indeed exciting!
Known as the City of Gentle people, Dumaguete is kind of like a second home to me (Reminds me to get some home insurance quotes). Not to mention is the fact that it is the place where our side of the “Diaz” family comes from. My wife and I has been talking about retiring somewhere in Italy as the Lord wills. But if not in Italy, we are in the agreement, that we would probably make Dumaguete our retirement haven.
Anyway, we were there for my wife’s research presentation, I just went along for the joyride. We stayed at the Ildefesa suites inn, a nice little very affordable hotel located at Hibbard Avenue, just very near Silliman University where my wife used to spend 2 years of her college life.
Two of the places we hanged out to eat were the “Hoy Lugaw Mo” for breakfast and a nice little restaurant facing the sea called “Hayahay” for dinner where we feasted on mouthwatering dishes.
Of course we dropped by the famous Silliman University. This is the first time I have actually been inside the Silliman University Museum. For me and my wife our visit to Silliman University it was a trip down memory lane. (I frequently visited her here when I courted her)
A trip to Dumaguete wouldn’t be complete if you haven’t spent your early mornings or your cool night walking down the famous Boulevard. My grandfather calls it the boulevard of broken dreams. I really don’t know why, perhaps he made some promises there that he broke. Hehehehe. Fortunately for me, it was the boulevard of fulfilled dreams!
With all the sights and sounds that Dumaguete has to offer, it is no wonder that this quaint little city is loved by locals and foreigners alike. Some foreigners even refer to it as the “European City” of the Philippines. I would agree to that, if they get rid of the tricycles that pollutes the city. (Perhaps limit their entry to certain roads in the city or replace them with e-tricycles) If they do this, than this would truly be something that is similar to that of the cities in Europe.
Oh by the way this trip to Dumaguete was a two day trip not just a day trip. I just used that word so that the title would rhyme. But really, Dumaguete is indeed dazzling. Check it out for yourself, go on a short vacation to Dumaguete today !
