Discover and experience Dumaguete, dubbed the “City of Gentle People” –a fitting compliment to the unhurried lifestyle of Dumagueteños. First stop is the Silliman University, where we take you on a walking tour of the campus dotted with century- old acacia trees. A tour of the Anthropological Museum is worth it (weekdays only). Next is a rolling tour of the city’s landmarks, including Claytown Pottery, Ninoy Aquino Park, the Convention Center, the bustling Public Market, and the historical Sta Catalina de Alexandria Church & Bellfry.
A quick trip down south of Dumaguete takes you to Negros Oriental Arts and Heritage (NOAH) which houses the stone- craft factory & showroom in Bacong , and the century-old San Agustin Church. Alternatively, you may southwest and upland to the town of Valencia through the tree-lined highway and visit Forest Camp, a cool and lush mountain resort with natural and man-made springs and pools, set amidst a forest setting. Lastly, you will pass through Rizal Boulevard, and visit Sidlakang Negros for some handicraft &delicacies. A delectable lunch awaits you at Lab-as Seafoods, a popular restaurant by the sea, which offers live fresh fish, crabs, oysters, and other native specialties.
