Inside Fish Market
Dumaguete's Fish and Vegetable-market is even famous as the cleanest in the area. Next to fish, meat and vegetables they also sell fruits, flowers, rice and the lot of accessoisies. Even service as beauty salons can be found.
still very dark in the morning
Every Sunday morning between 5 and 7 thre is a pre-market. in which the farmers from far of the island their vegeteables and fruits try too sell. You have to get up early but it is nice and colourfull.
Cockfight in Bacong
Cockfighting is the main entertainment-activity in many parts of the Philippines. The main place for this is in Bacolod in the Northern part of Negros (Occidental), but also in this area you can have a good impression. Not to be advised if you cannot see blood or being an animal-lover, but it is a local habit. In Europe this kind of entertainment is not allowed. In the neighbourhood are two nice cockfighting stadions, the bigger one in Dumaguete and the smaller one nearby the centre of Bacong, 5 km South of Dumaguete. Personally I prefer the Bacong one, this is a local one, not so busy and around the "cockpit" you have seats and tables to drink and eat if you like. It is to be watched on Sundays. Ask local which time the event is taking place.
