Bacong Things to Do

  • Here we go again.

    Here we go again, what's that all about? It is about my complete obsession with Asian public markets and readers of my pages will know that I cannot visit the smallest hole in the wall in Asia without having a nosy round the market, taking a few photos and writing a tip about it. I am sure some of them will be wringing their hands in despair on...

  • Come and meet the boys.

    It is rarely I write tips where I have to tick the Gay and Lesbian box before saving but this is one such time. I am by sexual orientation heterosexual even though I do not think that this should be a factor in writing tips. It is therefore that I offer this information based on trusted local information and not personal experience albeiit that I...

  • Small but beatifully formed.

    There is not a whole lot to do in Bacong, as I have mentioned elsewhere but there is one little place I like to go in the evenings which is great for meeting local people and socialising away from the tourist orientated resorts. To describe it as a bar would perhaps be stretching things a bit, Mydee's is effectively a shack tacked onto the side of...

Bacong Restaurants

  • Best breakfast in town and a whole lot...

    Update, 31st May, 2012.I am a little unsure as to whether to keep updating these tips or just delete the whole thing and start from scratch. I think, on reflection, I'll go with updates as it will a) provide me with a nice reminder of a nice place and b) stand as a record of how a place came from not even wanting to serve food to being the eating...

  • Nice but overpriced.

    I have written another tip about staying at the Dumaguete Springs Beach resort, which I did not like at all and I only ate in the restaurant once but, in fairness to them, that was probably the best part of the whole episode.The restaurant area is semi outdoors beside the pool and the gardens which afford a pleasant place to eat anyway. The images...

Bacong Shopping

  • A great bakeshop.

    It never ceases to amaze me that a relatively small place like Bacong bosts not one but three excellent bakeries. Furthermore and even more remarkably, two of them operate 24 hours a day and are situated literally within a stone's throw of each other, realistically about 40 yards. Well, I can throw a stone that far!The third one, which I will deal...

  • As fresh as it comes.

    It is unusual for me to write one shopping tip, never mind three on a page about a place as small as Bacong but I really must include this. It does not refer to shop but a series of stalls set up along National Highway South in the barangay of San Miguel where you can buy simply the freshest fish. Most of the vendors here are either fishermen or...

Bacong Warnings and Dangers

  • Boy racers.

    I shall write at greater length about the simply abysmal driving conditions in the Philippines in a general Philippines tip at a later date, assuming I survive the roads that long, but this is a tip specific to Bacong / Dauin and the National Highway there.The local youth have a practice of racing small but very souped-up motorbikes along a...

  • Treat with caution.

    This may well be one of the strangest tips I have ever written on VT as it is a warning / danger tip on a place I love and where I have many friends. However, I do try to be fair and objective in my writing so I will present the facts and let travellers make their own decisions.There are certainly no shortage of videoke (karaoke) bars along...
