    Valencia actually. I tried Cebu and Davao each for a couple of weeks but those cities seem too crowded for me. Are there any good gyms in Dumaguete? Usually I have one for lifting weights and one for cardio (like a boxing gym or crossfit or something).

    Also, is there a good place to rent a car or motorcycle buy the month?

    Thanks.

    Yes, there are a couple of good gyms here in Dumaguete. The one I go to in the Siliman Portal West Building, 3rd floor has good equipment, for weights including free weights, and cardio machines. They have boxing training program, although I do not know if if is competitive program. The name is
    world Fitness Gym. I pay 1,440 P per month including a locker for my use, which is a option. I believe the locker is 400 P option. I hope this give you some information.
    The best place I know of rent a motorcycles per month is at the intersection near the Yamaha Dealer in town. There are three places to rent a bike. Do not forget to negotiate your deal.

    Just curious, why are you deciding to move from Thailand? (I ask because I have been considering a move in the opposite direction.)

    I heard now from several expats in Thailand that they plan to move away from there. One thing is the instability they mentioned. Other told me that it becomes overcrowded with expats.
