Dumaguete is our last stop before we headed back to Manila. This city was like our stop stop over since it is a jump point to the destination we went such as Bacolod for the Masskara Festival, Cebu for our arrival and roadtrip afterwards and Siquijor for our island adventures. But nevertheless, Dumaguete City, a city of gentle people never fails to impress me. Here are some of the place we visited.
Visit at Work: SPi Global
Since we have our branches here in Dumaguete, we went to the site and visited our counterpart. We had a little chit-chat with the bosses, staffs and also the agents who were busy working. I was happy because I finally met them since I came here almost two years ago.
Malling at Robinsons Place Dumaguete
The largest mall in the city. It is the newest shopping center of the city situated along the main road of Dumaguete and it has different shops and establishments that caters to all people in the city and in nearby towns and cities. Travel to this place is very easy. Just hop to the tricycle and pay a minimum fare of PHP10 and you will be in the mall in few minutes. :)
Strolling at Rizal Boulevard
Touted as the main attraction of the city. It is just like a Baywalk in Manila but more on peaceful and quiet moment. At day, people came here to have an exercise and do their work out regimen. At night, there were many shops that sells tempura and other street food. Along the boulevard, you will find many establishments such as Honeycomb, and the famous Silliman University which I already featured on previous blog.
Pray at Dumaguete Cathedral
It is located at the heart of the city. You will not leave Dumaguete without visiting this iconic structure. To its right was the Dumaguete Belltower or Campanario de Dumaguete. According to the history, it is where a place to oversee any pirates that might attack to the area. It was once became a watchtower.
Desserts for Pasalubong @ Sans Rival
After that, we went to the famous Sans Rival in the city proper. It is a place where many tourists flocked to the cake shop to buy their pasalubong such as sylvannas, carrot cake and sansrival at affordable price. Since our flight was in the afternoon, we did our advance order and paid at the cashier. I bought sansrival, a round shape crust with creamy filling inside for only PHP120 per box, 10 pieces and carrot cake, PHP14 per slice.
These are the only places that we went while in Dumaguete. Though there were many interesting sites and views in and out of the city, it will be my next plans once I go here. It will be double excitement and fun! :)
Daghang Salamat (Thank you) Dumaguete City! :)
