    Definitely, you can include Guimaras and Bacolod to your Iloilo itinerary, but I'm not sure about Dumaguete and Siquijor. Besides, these 2 areas need similar number of days to explore. Maybe best if you plan another trip for them.

    Guimaras is about 15mins by boat from Iloilo, while Bacolod is about 2 hours ferry ride. You can go by land to Miag-ao, Jaro, and other towns of Iloilo.

    The lady above is right again hehe (idol ko na rin yan pag dating sa galaan =)... When you base it on the map pa lang, you will see that Siquijor and Dumaguete are out of way. Bacolod, Iloilo and Guimaras are well within each other's reach.

    Tama sila :-) i suggest you spend day 1 in iloilo, day 2 in guimaras, day 3 in bacolod and day 4 in iloilo ( i assume you got RT MNL-ILO) That should cover major sights in each.

    For Iloilo, day 1 - familiarize yourself in the routes for day 2 and 3, see the city by PUJ trips, find and indulge in their famous batchoy

    For Guimaras, day 2 - tour major spots in Guimaras, stay overnight at a beach resort in alubihod, try the mangoes!

    For Bacolod, day 3 - try the nearest hot springs, get local pastries, stay overnight in the city

    Back to Iloilo in day 4 - find the pina/jusi weavers in Jaro, unique iloilo crafts

    Back to Manila...
    - just something to start from :-)

    hi!

    you may visit iloilo's famous spots in 1 day including Miagao Church which is 40 km/1 hour away from the City (fare is P40-50 1-way)

    iloilo-guimaras is a 15-30 minute ferry ride; fare should be less than P100 RT

    iloilo-bacolod by fast craft ferry is only an hour away (ferries leave iloilo every hour starting 5 or 6 AM daily until about 5 or 6 PM); fare is about P400 RT.

    bacolod-dumaguete is about 5 hrs by A/C bus & the last bus leaves bacolod at around 1 or 2 PM (fare is less than P400 1-way)

    Dumguete-Siquijor is less than an hour & fare is less than P100 1-way

    i totally agree with asianbelle, set another trip for dumaguete-siquijor, i don't think its feasible in 4 days no matter how you do it...

    what are your points of interest, by the way? iloilo has nice beaches, known for good food, old houses & churches...

    in case you need other info, just drop a message to my YM: clarice_ldr

    Cheers,
    clarice
