Dumaguete one of the world’s best places to retire

Dumaguete, the capital of Negros Oriental in Central Visayas, has been chosen as one of the most ideal places to retire around the world in the 2014 Retire Overseas Index.

Based on expenses such as rent, gas, electricity, water, cable, groceries, Internet, and entertainment, retirees living in Dumaguete will only need a monthly budget of US$910 or about P40,000.
