Here's a thread to branch off from the one currently called "Bacolod City and Negros Island"... because looking at the posts in that thread, it's really just all about Bacolod. :) Dumaguete is a humble little city, but it deserves some attention. :)

What gives Dumaguete its alluring charm is that it's a respectable-sized city, but it has not yet swelled into a congested sprawling urban mess. It's a university town where the campus of Silliman University is adjacent to and almost intertwined with the downtown area. There are still open areas and clean public parks, and huge acacia trees providing greenery and shade, even in the more urban areas. The city may yet be mismanaged in the future and fall to the same fate of many other congested Philippine cities-- but for now, Dumaguete City is a great place to call home.

I've got a bunch of pictures to share, I'll post them soon. And I'll also post pictures from the previous thread, if I can find them

EDIT (May 2, 2006) -- Here are links to all of the pictures posted in the first 15 pages of this thread.

I visited La Liberted when I was 7 years old so memories are vague except that it was raining heavilly that time and the boat/motorized banca that we were riding almost capsized.

About Dumaguete city, my friends told me that there are no traffic lights in the area. is it true?

Yup, a city of 100,000 people... a province of 1,100,000 people... not a single traffic light. Then again, most of the streets in the downtown area are too narrow to really make good use of a traffic light. I remember there used to be a traffic light in Tanjay City (a city ~30km north of Dumaguete), but I guess they removed it because it just wasn't necessary.
