Where to go and what to do in Dumaguete City and Siquijor? Let's plan your itinerary! Read on to learn the things you need to know, places to visit and must-do activities when visiting Dumaguete and Siquijor.


Dumaguete City, often referred to as the "Land of Gentle People" is the capital city of Negros Oriental province. It is one of the cities in Central Visayas where you could really feel a laid back atmosphere with hospitable locals. It is a city, yet it doesn't feel like a city. Offering low-cost and relaxed way of living, it has become a favorite retirement destination for many foreigners wanting to settle in the Philippines.

Many of the city's population are university students from different parts of the region. For this, it was also dubbed as "University Town," becuase you can find here many universities including the prestigious Silliman University. Established in 1901, it is considered as the oldest private American university in the Philippines and in Asia.

There's really not much to visit within the city. But Dumaguete makes a good base for traveling to other destinations in Negros Oriental, South Cebu and Siquijor.

Located off the shore of Dumaguete City, is the mystical island province of Siquijor. Just an hour boat ride from Dumaguete Port, you will reach this wonderful island full of amazing natural wonders, idyllic beaches, and offers rich cultural heritage.

I've been to Siquijor and Dumaguete 3 times in the past, and I really enjoyed every visit. In this travel guide blog, I will share to you some detailed sample itineraries that could serve as your guide in creating your own Dumaguete-Siquijor DIY itinerary and help you plan your trip. I also included here some travel tips on how you can enjoy your trip and how to make the most out of your time in Dumaguete City and Siquijor.
