Some tourists like to come here to learn English. Another thing, Dumaguete is also a nice place. The people are very warm and hospitable. Many people put up their business here since this is still a developing city. Also, many missionaries come here to put up churches. —Hae sok Yoon, Café Evada owner.

We have it all except the political will to spend on the most crucial ingredient: promotion. —Cobbie Palm

Not only are we rich in natural touristic destinations, our people imbued with warm hospitality and genuine sociability creates a wonderful atmosphere for foreign visitors to stay and enjoy our province. —Woodrow Maquiling Jr, Tourism Operations Officer.

Exposure, awareness and media marketing — target these things through the viral medium. —Rajo Laurel, Fashion Designer

Dumaguete is a peaceful university town that’s known for its vibrant creative atmosphere. Foreign visitors come here to experience excellent diving in Apo Island and Dauin, take hikes to many scenic waterfalls and lakes and enjoy numerous other outdoor activities. So long as the local tou and transport operators, resort owners, LGU and locals work together, this seaside town continues to lure a healthy mix of divers, artists and travelers who all share a spirit od adventure. —Sandra Fuentes, Orientwind Travel and Tours Manager.

By creating an out-of-the-box theme park in Dumaguete City and people will have beautiful photographed souvenirs of themselves after the exhilarating experience! —Clee Andro Villasor, photographer.

Dumaguete has many universities which teach good English. Education is important. Come to Dumaguete! -Pakky Park, Korean student at Silliman University.

I believe that Dumaguete City has great potential for ecotourism. So the government and community should work hand in hand in building environmental and cultural awareness and respect. Blogs, websites and magazines must be updated with information on businesses that provide positive experiences for the visitors such as tourist spots, hotels, restaurants, art products, souvenirs and specialty food items. —Jose Miranda, proprietor of Qyosko and Agencia Belen

The city of Dumaguete has a fast growing economy and I could say it is on its way to being highly industrialized. I would, indeed, recommend Dumaguete to tourists because it is the City of Gentle People. There are also lots of historical places to see. You can find the first American school ever established in the Philippines in Dumaguete, which is the Silliman University. —Gilzar Vergara, AmNoy
