Dumaguete is known as the 'City of the Gentle People', and although not a city of major sights, it is a pleasant place in which to relax and experience the beautiful architecture and pleasant piazzas that characterize the capital of Negros Oriental.
It is also a great base from which to explore some beautiful beaches and coastal areas, which present opportunities for whale and dolphin watching at certain times of year.
