Thank you very much for your advice. It confirms my online research. There is a coworking space there where I can meet freelancers and get to know the tech community. Now I just need to find a place to live within walking distance. I have seen the traffic in Dumaguete and issues with parking. I would rather not have to depend on commuting on a motorcycle. So this leaves me to find a place within walking distance. Do you know of any apartments nearby?
