I think I suggested Dumaguete in another thread. ;)

It has often been said about Dumaguete being a University town. It is synonymous with Silliman U but there are other universities around.

Dumaguete offered the first writer's workshop in Asia apparently, with Filipino writers writing in English. Even before the influx of Persians and Koreans in the country, had the most number of international students in the Philippines. The school has also ranked next to the three UP's in a ten year study of board exam scores. Actually that study showed most of the schools fr Visayas and Mindanao in the top ten and several top schools in Manila not figuring in the top ten. Frankly, I am not into rankings at all but I know some people find it helps them decide. There are a lot of good schools and even better schools outside Manila. In the end the term BEST is subjective anyways.

So it depends what your preferences are.
