Visa Extension in the Philippines: Cost breakdown

It was time for my visa extension and since there is no Bureau of Immigration on Siquijor, I went to Dumaguete. Once in the office I learned that now I can do a six months visa extension in Dumaguete, no need to go to Cebu, Bacolod or Iloilo for that. Great improvement, but I needed to visit the ATM first, before applying. Since a 6 months visa is more expensive off course. But first things first, I got a question…

Do i miss Dumagete, the number one retirement paradise?

I have moved, after living in Dumaguete for 4 months it was time to leave. People wonder if I will miss the place. Long story short?

I miss the Magic of Dumaguete

I miss the Magic of Dumaguete

I really was looking forward to my visit to Dumaguete. After all: I’ve been watching all those videos about the place on YouTube during my preparations. So I kind of had the feeling I would know the place. How wrong assumptions can be? And how wrong are the impressions you might get from YouTube channels! Dumaguete is nothing I ever imagined. As a matter of fact I dislike the place so much and there is so little to do that…
