    Watching Cockfighting

    by whitebear Updated Dec 18, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cockfighting is the main entertainment-activity in many parts of the Philippines. The main place for this is in Bacolod in the Northern part of Negros (Occidental), but also in this area you can have a good impression. Not to be advised if you cannot see blood or being an animal-lover, but it is a local habit. In Europe this kind of entertainment is not allowed. In the neighbourhood are two nice cockfighting stadions, the bigger one in Dumaguete and the smaller one nearby the centre of Bacong, 5 km South of Dumaguete. Personally I prefer the Bacong one, this is a local one, not so busy and around the "cockpit" you have seats and tables to drink and eat if you like. It is to be watched on Sundays. Ask local which time the event is taking place.

    Have a massage at Nuat Thai

    by Lalee Written Oct 25, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We came across this new massage place near the shopping area of Dumaguete.
    Traditional Thai foot and body massage is what they specialise in and who would believe you could get a good one far from Thailand. The guy that owns it was trained at some famous school in Thailand and in turn trained the staff there.

    I opted for the 1 hour body massage which was only 150 pesos.
    My brother took a 1/2 hour foot and a 1/2 hour back massage for the same price.
    When you walk in you will see a row of nice leather reclining chairs to sit in if you are having a foot massage.
    You go upstairs for the body and back massage and these are held in a large room that use curtains to make smaller rooms. You are handed a pair of oversized pyjamas to change into and then they massage you with these on.
    Wonderful break from the heat and noise outside - highly recommended if you get a chance to go.

    Foot massage 1/2 hour @ P50
    Foot massage 1 hour @ P150
    Body massage 1 hour @ P150
    Body massage 2 hours @ P300
    Back massage 1/2 hour @P75

    Hiking

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Make a walking trip to the Twin Lakes, just 13 km north of the centre of Dumaguete left inland after the city of Sibulan.
    The road is around 14 km. The hike is from one to the other lake half an hour one way.

    Silliman University

    by mayasmin Written Mar 28, 2004

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    The oldest university in the Philippines outside of Manila, and the first Protestant university in the Philippines. The university is seen as one of the best universities in the south/central part of the Philippines. The presence of the university makes Dumaguete virtually a university town. Additionally, the campus is the best way to meet local people since students frequently hang-out in between classes.

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dumaguete, like most of the Philippines, has a population composed mostly of Roman Catholics. This cathedral was named after the city's patron saint, St. Alexandria, whose feast falls on November 25. During Nov. 25, the whole city celebrates through numerous events and city-wide parties in connection with the city's fiesta.

    Belltower

    The oldest landmark city built around the 18th century. Legend has it that the bells were meant to warn the local people when pirates come and try to snatch away the local women. Thus, the name Dumaguete - from the local word "daguit" which means snatch.
