“Souvenir shop ”
Review of Sidlakang Negros

Sidlakang Negros
Reviewed 7 August 2017 via mobile

Before we visited this place, I thought it was more than just a souvenir shop. What I have in mind is a place that showcases what Negros has to offer aside from souvenirs, however, when we arrived at the place, I was quite surprised that it was just a small place and not much is seen inside. I bought 2 souvenir shirts the price for white shirt costs P 110 , the colored one costs P 140. A wooden key chain costs P 70, a ref magnet also cost P 70 but to my dismay, when I went to Rizal Blvd, I was able to buy a key chain and ref magnet for only P 20 each.

I hope on my next visit, I can find something that will give me a glimpse of Negros aside from the souvenirs. They should also make this place attractive to tourists.

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 the tricycle driver where you want to go.

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 dead.
Take as an example the cultural village in Kuta Kinabalu. It shows perfectly how to make an interesting place for the cultural heritage.
Sad to see another wasted chance...

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.

This is a showroom of all significant products proudly made in Negros Oriental, Of course, they also sell these items so it is virtually a one-stop shop for souvenirs and native delicacies. Around Christmas time, the staff told us that various exhibits and festivities are also held there so be sure to drop by when you're in Dumaguete City in November-December. I wonder though why they don't make it a year-round affair. After all, tourists go there all months of the year. Since it's also a commercial venture, it should be self-sustaining too.
