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.
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've been to Basay and Bayawan on different occasions and never liked it there----it is a personal thing though and does not represent everyone-----I just couldn't wrap my head around the hype of those places, I am sorry, but that is just what I think. With regards to travelling and seeing more of the world, no, thanks---I am not a fan of travelling.
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.
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.
Bayawan got a decent hospital (ACE) also in the last year. And there is another mall (Primark) being planned or under construction in Bayawan.
Oh, but haven't you heard. Bayawan is too far. No one will ever go there. Glendazumba
Don't take it personally.
