Hello I am living in a province called Bicol but I want to move where there are more expats that speak English, tired of not understanding a thing they say, and I am coming to visit Dumaguete at the end of July 2019. Any recommendations of what part of town or outside of town preferably would be a good place to look for affordable housing and people to talk with and hang with.

Kansas - I would try the Becong area . nice , safe , and affordable housing . In duma itself its loud and lots of motor bikes , getting crowded . Becong has the nice balance and cheapest housing . also to the south is Zambogita . Very affordable .to the North , Bais is a nice town- 35 min north .San Carlos to the north is 3 hours drive at least - one of my favourite cities on the east cost of the island - very big new hospital there too ! . Good balance . Valencia is nice in the hills BUT expensive for something of good quality now .
Many goo expats in Becong area . Regular bus to city too . about 20 min south .

kansasman, Bicol is the region you live in. The provinces in the Bicol Region are: Camarines Norte, Camarines Sur, Albay, Sorsogon and some people include Masbate. Not sure which province you live in. Having spent some time in the region, I observed that Camarines Sur seemed to have the most expats living there and certainly the most foreign tourists. More specifically, Legaspi City was the place I observed this. The beauty of the Mayon volcano never gets old, it looks new every morning and makes you glad to live so close by. .

Morgac - Quiet and Safe without services sounds a lot better than crazy, dangerous, and lots of services. To me, anyway!!
