I've lived in dumaguete 13 years. It's a good place and reasonably priced. Good climate but no good beaches, the nearby mountains are excellent for adventurous people. It's a laid back small city

Dumaguete seems to attract lots of Cheap Charlies and USA lefties from California. So many foreigners not wish to speak up about the crime but there is certainly some of that too. For a city its size Dumaguete has a serious drug problem and the criminals that drugs attract. You should know foreigners have zero rights in the Ph. Police will protect the local native drug crazed over the foreigner because that's the law! Fact of the matter is police have instructions how to treat the foreigners and its not to the foreigners advantage. Don't be fooled by ignorant sexpats who remain clueless their whole time in the Ph.
