Overall Guide : The Dumaguete Bell Tower is a historic construction and a popular landmark of the city. It served as a watchtower in ancient times and is now equipped with a lush garden. A large number of devotees visit the place everyday... more to pray. Embellished with evergreen trees and some excellent dining places, the Boulevard is Dumaguete’s most famous promenade. Known for its beautiful view of the sunrise, it is also a good jogging track. The Silliman Beach is a beautiful place known for its relaxed and serene environment. Visitors can also enjoy some popular water activities here. It is especially popular with the younger crowd. The Quezon Park is a beautiful area with some stunning tree lines and a huge play area for children; it also serves as a venue for concerts and exhibitions. The Tayada Sa Plaza is a cultural program held every week in this park.
