• Before any travels, do research first of the place where you are going. How much the fare is, where you want to stay, what are the tourist spots there, etc.
• Learn a few Cebuano phrases like “Maayong buntag”- good morning, “Daghang salamat”- (many) thanks, etc. because it is the common dialect there though most of the locals there are fluent in Filipino & English
• Travel light.
• Transportation is by colourful tricycles with a flat rate of P7. If you know how to use a motorcycle, you can rent one at P20 per hour
• If you want to bring a bit of Dumaguete back to your hometown, visit Sans Rival and buy their sylvannas at P100/box with 10 pcs inside but warning, these should be refrigerated. It could withstand without a freezer for at least 4 to 6 hours at the most. Trinkets can be bought at Handuman store located at Perdices street. It’s a small store so just ask around because you might just have missed it.
