Why Dumaguete?

Recommended Posts

Posted

Hi guys

As I learned from my last post a fair few of you live in Dumaguete. I realise that a major reason is the camaraderie of a group of expats (which appeals to me also), but I wonder if there were any other reason/s that you would opt for there rather than somewhere like Moalboal or Badian?

Many thanks

Craig

We are still enjoying a wanderlust lifestyle, but if either my wife or I should need caregiver services, Dumaguete would be our destination. The reason is Silliman University produces excellent medical graduates and has an excellent hospital. The area has more charm and is less chaotic than Metro Manila. Having a supportive expat community is another plus.

For me, my Wife is a Dumaguetonian and so very proud of it, he we are and here we stay, anywhere else is within fairly easy travel :whistling:

Probably just personal preference.  I notice many younger people (as in one or more decades younger than me) like Moalboal.  Badian does not even strike me as worth mentioning.  Balamban is a bit popular as it is a quick hop over the mountain away from Cebu City.  But Dumaguete has a certain appeal to retiring foreigners.  It may be just the social aspect of having so many like-minded old farts living nearby so the feeling of ethnic isolation that sometimes happens in other provincial areas does not happen here.

For me it is the convenience of a big city without all of the hassle.I can get nearly everything I want here without travelling 60km.

Yes JJ, whilst I hate to look at the impending need for medical services - I cant bury my head in the sand and what you say makes sense.
