Bacolod City Travel Guide


Bacolod, the capital of Negros Occidental, notable for its MassKara Festival held during the third week of October and is known for being a relatively friendly city, as it bears the nickname "The City of Smiles".

This is my first domestic travel this 2019. What to do in Bacolod? People asked why I chose to travel in Bacolod for my birthday.

First, it was on sale. I got my round trip tickets for only around 400 php. Why not, coconut?! And mostly because Bacolod is not just an ordinary highly urbanized city, it offers you historical tourist destinations and welcomes you with an unforgettable meal like its Chicken Inasal.

But Bacolod is not just for foodies, there are things to do in Bacolod where you can enjoy with your squad or even your family. Within an hour drive you can dip in waterfalls in Mambukal Mountain Resort, zip-lining in Campuestuhan Highland Resort and bask under the sun in Lakawon Island in Cadiz City. Be amazed on Talisay's The Ruins and satisfy your cravings in Calea Pastries & Coffee. These are just some of attractions and activities in making your Bacolod trip unforgettable.

How to get there?

By Air:

If you are from Luzon, you can choose from Clark International Airport or Manila International Airport. You can book your flights either with Philippine Airlines or Cebu Pacific and will cost you not more than 5,000 php for a round trip ticket.

The airport in Negros Occidental is situated at Silay City. It is only less than an hour from Bacolod City.

Public Transportation

It is really easy to roam around Negros Occidental. There are jeepneys and tricycle to take, however, if you are traveling as a group, it would be best to take the taxi or hire a van to make your trip more comfortable and swift.

The tour package is highly recommended. Kuya Ed, our tour guide is very accommodating. The tour was hassle-free and flexible because of the transport service. The hotel they booked for us was clean and comfortable.
