This is a great place to see Negros in a nutshell... if ONLY it was better maintained. The souvenir shop was open but not much else. Good choices of souvenirs and acceptable prices however it was sad that the attractions were not well maintained. It's not broken down mind you, just not cleaned enough. To find the place just tell... More

When it was opened a few years back, it was intended to be a nice showcase of the region. Now you can visit it during the Buglasan week, where people sell wood on strings, calling it art, and rice in banana leaves, raving about it like it would be Gordon Ramsey's Wellington. The rest of the year it is basically... More

Souvenir shops of every municipality of Negros Oriental. Its were they show pride on what their local products are. This place would only be lively on Buglasan Festival which falls on the third week of October.

The hot springs' pools are a favorite with the locals. There are three pools to choose from plus a cold water pool. Easy to get there on a jipney, but going back to Dumaguete you need to ride on the back of a motorcycle. Just by luck there was mountain bike racing that day.

This is a place for foreign tourists. Local tourists like me would find the local products sold here to be on the expensive side especially if you know where to source them in Dumaguete.

But not all that impressive. Hard to place my finger on it, but if you want something authentic special from the region, seek out the great stone, coral and seashell souvenirs in Bacong at the local stoneworking art shop. They are colorful, varied in size and style, and sure to please every decorative taste in your home wherever you live... More

We thought we will be able to check out regional souvenirs in all the cottages, but not so. Apparently only the major hut is open daily and all the others only during a celebration in October. Selection of goods are not very interesting, prices also quite expensive. This place needs a revamp for more trendy Negros products and not the... More

Went here on a Saturday and was disappointed that there are very few souvenir items for sale. Place needs improvement in terms of their exhibits and lighting.
