"Expat" city?

"Hot" and "up n coming"?

I don't know what this alludes to....sex scene? Where professionals work?

Professionals work wherever there are corporate offices. They aren't artists looking for cheap rent. Manila is the economic heart, so it's where the expats who make expat salaries live. Some offices are in Cebu or Davao, and some go there accordingly.

"Expats" don't generally 'take over a city' and make it into a 'hot' and 'up n coming' destination.

What are you looking to do exactly?

I guess Ilo-Ilo or Negros Occidental is similar to Dumaguete

No, Iloilo doesn't. It has a mall that expats would frequent to walk around. I've been there twice, and I liked it well enough, but it doesn't have that.

The Philippines is funny, with 8000+ islands, there aren't any cities that have a nice beach right in the city limits, like you'd find in most other cities on the ocean.

I think Cebu is the most comfortable city for expats though. It has the amenities of the Manila, with the plethora of negatives that Manila has.
