Dumaguete • Oslob • Badian • Manjuyod • Bais • Apo Island • Siquijor

Exploring South Cebu can be really fun, but also tedious. There are so many places to choose to include in one’s itinerary. Since Dumaguete City is the central hub of the places we decided to explore, we decided to plan our itinerary with Dumaguete as our main base for at least 3 days before going to Siquijor for the remaining nights. Here is a sample “backpacker” style itinerary for exploring South Cebu.

San Juan Beach, Siquijor
