Hello all, First, I want to thank you for allowing me to join your forum. I've been coming to the Philippines every year like clockwork since 2006. I fell in love with the country and people from the very beginning. I did have exposure to the culture from most of my friends in San Diego and Daly City. Well, long story short I finally retired at 50 years old in July and moved to the Philippines in August. As for now I am residing in Bonificao Global City, in Manila. However, I've been to Dumaguete several times and really like the area and the vibe there. I really enjoy the slower pace of life compared to the hustle and bustle of the City. I'm seriously thinking of relocating to Dumaguete in August when my lease is over here. I was wondering if could get some advice better areas of the Dumaguete, that I should begin to look and visit as a potential home. With safety keeping safety as the # 1 factor as an expat. I fill relatively safe here in BGC and was hopefully looking for that same type of security in Dumaguete area if its available. I look forward to your input and advice.
