Getting Around Dumaguete

Saturday, February 05, 2011

From Manila, you can take either Cebu Pacific or Philippine Airlines. Both of them have 2 flights per day. The last time we went to Dumaguete, we took Philippine Airlines from Naia 2. It was the first flight so we had to leave quite early from Bacoor.

You'll arrive in Dumaguete in less than an hour.  From the airport, there are vans, tricyles and taxis to rent to. I dont know how much rate they charged but the van that we rented cost us Php 500.00 to get to Mangnao. 

This is a typical streets of Dumaguete. This city is considered to be the motorcycle city of the Philippines. There is truth in that. The medium of transportation here is indeed motorcycle.

My PIL (parents-in-law) have 4 motorcycles.

A short walk along the beach is a must. Although the sands are black but its clean.

Dumaguete Cathedral:

The best way to know a city's past is to look inside its ancient churches. This church is build between 1754 and 1776. The Dumaguete Cathedral is the oldest stone church in Negros Oriental. This was reconstructed in 1885 and underwent facade renovations in 1936.

There are various hotels and pension houses around the city. The most popular is Bethel but there are new hotels that are a lot cheaper.

I will be posting another one about Dumaguete about sights to see, food to eat, places to stay etc. so watch out for more!
