Bacolod Trip Itinerary (Bacolod – Lakawon – Iloilo)
Day 1: Lakawon Island & The Ruins
Start the day by traveling to Lakawon Island, make sure that you get there early, or go here during the weekday where there’s a high chance of having the place to yourselves. There’s food and beer available there.
Watch the sunset at the Ruins, in Silay, as this is the best time to be there, according to locals.
Day 2: Mambukal Mountain Resort or Don Salvador Benedicto
Enjoy a day of waterfalls and a sulfuric pool dip in Mambukal. Climb the mountains to see the 7 falls! This will surely take your breath away! Get Family Cottage 2 as this has the best view of the lagoon.
Don Salvador Benedicto offers a lot of attractions for nature trippers, such as hiking, riding one of the longest ziplines, nature trip and sight seeing. Moreover, the high altitude and the cool climate is similar to Tagaytay. The Magnetic Hill is also located here!
Day 3&4: Guimaras
Make sure you leave early in the morning to catch the earliest ferry to Iloilo and then a pump boat to Guimaras. Bring food before going to the resorts as the locals close shop at around 7pm.
Manokan Country offers an assembly of Chicken Inasal restaurants, with so much to choose from. I suggest to try eating at Aida’s Manokan! You should also try a local favorite, Nena’s Rose Chicken Inasal, which can be found almost everywhere.
The Old Pala-Pala Market is a must for your Seafood craving! If you’re feeling fancy, you should try Imay’s Bar & Restaurant (6th Street), or the 18th Street Pala-Pala Restaurant.
If you have a sweet tooth, or just looking for pasalubong, drop by Calea Restaurant, and Il Ideal for the cakes, and Pendy’s for their great tasting Napoleones!
