At the tourism center, one can find some  artistic and distinctively Dumaguete souvenirs (handcrafts, ref magnets, keychains, t-shirts, colorful bags, etc) made from terracotta, capiz, shells, and woven materials.

  5. That’s a unique tourist center. Looks kind of deserted though.

  6. Do the entire village look like the photo above? If so, it’s amazing how they were able to maintain that kind of village look and feel! Good that in this village is the tourism office; it somehow adds to the exposure of the village to tourists. 🙂
