Dumaguete Travel Info, Map and Itinerary
- The town proper is a very short ride from the airport with jeeps, tricycles and buses plying the route. At the airport, you'll be aggressively offered a van or tricycle to the city by a lot of transport providers. Some of them charge as much as P250 per trip. Walk outside the airport and cross the main street and flag down a jeep or tricycle or a bus to the city. Fare is only P10.00 for jeep or bus and about P15/head on tricycles (they call it pedicab here). (as of this writing, Oct 2011)
