This will be our first time in Bacolod. We plan to stay in a pension house. Any suggestion on where to stay where we can easily get cab and/or watch the festivities?
I'm planning a trip to the Philippines for sometime in January 2015 (or possibly sooner). I don't speak Ilonggo or Tagalog but I can understand them both. And, since it has been years since I've visited, I'm no longer familiar with the city. I have a few questions (ok, a lot!) and I'd really appreciate your help :)
- I will be traveling with my very blond, very American BF, who has never been to the Philippines. I want to show him just how welcoming and friendly Filipinos can be. Are there any fun destinations you might recommend that will showcase Filipino hospitality? (We are a young couple in our early 20's and 30's)
- I have family in Bago as well as Bacolod and would love to visit them both. What is the best way to travel between those cities?
- Is L'Fisher still the best hotel in Bacolod? ;)
- Since I don't want to task my relatives with playing tour guide, are there local tour guides you can recommend to show us around for a day or two?
- I'm a huge foodie, and I miss authentic Filipino food so much. I have been telling my BF about chicken inasal, which I can't find anywhere in East Coast USA. Who serves the best chicken inasal? Other restaurant recommendations would be great!
- Before we return to the US, we would like to visit Palawan or Boracay for at least 2 nights. What is the best way to get to either destinations from Bacolod? What is your favorite resort/hotel in those locations?
Thanks so much for your time, and I look forward to making many friends here. Maybe I'll even see some of you when I visit! :)

If to take a taxi ( to bargain with driver) from Silay airport to hotel and on the way to visit Ruins (a driver will be waiting there about 30-40 min). How much it will be cost ( in average), I mean airport-Ruins-hotel?
Or it will be better to go from airport to hotel by shuttle bus ( I`ve read it stopped near SM Bacolod) and having left small luggage at the hotel to visit Ruins?
I`ve read one of websites where had been written that for visiting Punta Tay Tay one should take a jeepney routed Central Market to Punta Tay Tay. Is Central Market close to Check Inn hotel or it is Libertad ( Central Market)? How to find these jeepneys and approximate rate to go there ?

Hi.. maybe you guys can help me.. I'm currently doing a research on where to go and what to do for this trip.. Our flight is on Sept 29 4am to Bacolod.. Im planning on going straight to mambukal and stay there for a night. Leave the next morning and check in somewhere in Bacolod.. but, since I'm taking my 3 yr old son with me, I need to make an itinerary that won't tire me and my baby much.. Second option is to just stay at mambukal for 2 nights and then go to Iloilo and not watch na the Masskara Festival.. I need to know travel time from Bacolod airport to mambukal then mambukal to city and which jeeps / buses should we take.. Also, do any of you know a hotel or an inn very near Iloilo Airport as our flight is at 0650am october 4.. thank you much much.. PS.. u might want also to suggest a resort at guimaras that has 24 hour electricity.. and cheap as well... :)
