The City of Dumaguete is the hub of culture for the island of Negros. As the capital of the Negros Oriental it’s the central meeting place for all of the province’s people. The island inhabitants gather here to sell their goods and wares in the City’s Market and in various parks during various fiesta’s. They also come down from the neighboring provinces to sell their recently harvested crops as well as their farm raised livestock and of course the freshest catch of the day from the surrounding waters. It’s only fitting that the City of Gentle People would be the natural creative center of the province as it is also where all the island’s brightest young minds converge for higher education and learning at one of the City’s many colleges and universities.
