31 Hours Stay in Negros Occidental

I hope this post can help you in planning your trip or doing your itinerary. We arrived at Silay Airport 10 minutes before our expected arrival 5:25AM and our airport transfer was already there. Silay Aiport is 30 minutes away from Bacolod City; you can ride a van for P100/per pax, take a cab for P500 or avail airport transfer from your hotel for P500.

We arrived at Circle Inn at 6AM and unfortunately room was not available because they are really fully booked so we have no choice but to start our tour though we’re really sleepy.

After our breakfast in McDonalds, we visit Capitol Lagoon, it is a park where you can see people from all walks of life, some are playing in the park, some are walking and jogging and some are doing their morning exercise while we’re busy watching people and taking pictures.

Then we went to The Ruins of Mansion, (past 7AM) we stayed there for almost two hours. There are other interesting sites in Bacolod such as Balay Negrense, Ancestral houses & Bernardino Jalandoni Museum, Mambukal Resort, Balay ni Tana DicangNegros Museum, San Sebastian Cathedral and Lakawon Island. We did not visit these places because we’re really here for food trip and Ruins of the mansion.

We had cake and coffee food trip at Calea (10AM) and went back to Circle Inn (12NN) for check-in. Thank God, room is already available, so we ate lunch and slept. =)

We ate dinner at 21 restaurant (6PM) and went back to Calea for take-out dessert.

Hubby and son had their usual bonding which is swimming while I’m busy packing our stuff because we have to leave the following day for our next leg.

We went to Pendy’s to buy some pasalubong and eat breakfast. (7AM) Then back to hotel and rest before our check-out.

We left Circle Inn at 10:30AM and went straight to Manukan Country (taxi fare is P60). We had early lunch because our boat schedule trip is12NN. From Manukan Country, we took trisikad (P30 and P1 entrance fee/port).
