    A mall for Bayawan or any other small town or place is a good thing. To me, the best thing is that it will provide employment opportunities. People will not have to travel to other cities looking for work or make a long commute.

    People all look for different things in places they chose to live in. Some want quick access to hospitals and medical care in an emergency, some look for peace and quiet, some look for variety of things to do and some just look for anything that is convenient.

    If you are lucky and have found what you want and can say almost everyday that you are happy and content, then you should be thankful.

    I think the mall was built for the people of bayawan and look at the jobs it will create there!
    Eventually foreigners will start to get fed up of dumaguete and the traffic and pollution and look at other areas. Bayawan has some good projects going on and still has the best boulavard around here even though it could do with a few more restos.

    I asked a few weeks ago if they were going to fix the place up and told them that it was now dirty and the bathrooms were crap.
    As of now they are working on the 4th floor with renovations.

    Between Dumaguete City and Bayawan lie many other places where people can live near "crystal clear waters" (maybe a bit of poop here and there, but nothing's perfect!), "unspoiled beaches" (apart from a bit of trash here and there), "lush hillsides" (it rains not only in Bayawan) and lower traffic density. Also places north of DC. Agree that people might at times need to venture into DC for stores, restaurants, dental and medical - but I suspect that is the same for residents of Bayawan. One mall will not make that great a difference.

    Sometimes when people keep pushing their place it seems they are either a very nice person, extremely interested in the well-being of their fellow mankind ( :smile: ) or they have an ulterior motive.

    If you want a more quiet life in a not so crowded city then Bayawan is for you.

    I'll find it great that some lesser developed places like Bayawan are getting some nice upgrades. Because of this mall, people in the area has no longer to go and jam Dumaguete for shopping. The mall will serve an area with around 200k people which is good for one mall.

    Edit: in Switzerland we have about one smaller shopping mall for 10k people. The area where I live has around 40k people and we have 5 smaller shopping malls.

    Why would you think that they would build a mall in Bayawan for people living in Dumaguete. As to being too far you are talking to people who traveled thousands of miles to get here. Do you think "they" would think 100 kms is too far? You really need to get out more. See something new.

    Hotel Maefinn in Bayawan. Great restaurant too. Cañamaque Royal Suites Apartment Hotel if looking for bare bones but clean. No elevators in town yet. Nice beach & food at Talipapa. Several other smaller food fares along the boulevard. Getting ready to open a large mall next month. Hopefully it will bring some more restaurants. About 20km north you will find Funtasea Resort. Several small resorts along the way. It is slow so if you are looking for companionship bring it. Beautiful sunsets.

    One - one way to spoil a "treasure" is to advertise it and then over populate it. Two - no matter how big the store is, until they learn how to properly run the supply/order chain, it will just mean more space to be "out of stock".
