City in Negros Occidental, Visayas, Philippines

Here are latest things to do in Bacolod City which I curated after I toured my clients/visitors. This article is a combination of my perspective and my friend’s feedbacks. I hope this list would give you more reasons to Smile. Also see my Bacolod Travel Guide.

Some articles may have some links beneath it that would lead to a more in-depth information about a certain place/activity.

Negros Museum

When I visit places, I like to visit museums and historical places. 

This central place allows you to visit Negros’ Past and how culture in this island came to be. I bring my visitors here when they like this category. 

You will see paintings of Negrenses, maps from the ancient Spainartifacts during the Negros Revolution, photos of past Malay settlers and other memorabilia of the first settlers of the island. We also came to visit a room filled with toys. 

Located just at the side of the back of Provincial Capitol Lagoon. Just take “Bata” jeep if you are from Plaza or SM. Make sure to ask the driver first. 

The Ruins

The past helps me to reflect on my present and be wiser for my future. This tourist spot in Bacolod should always be on the list for you to know deeper about our history. There’s a separate page where I wrote an extensive article about this.

When I bring my friends or visitors here, and there are no tour guides available, I enjoy acting as one because it allows me to voice out our past and causes us to interact with topics like Feudalism, Economics, Politics and Geography.

This Italianate Mansion remains is located in Don Mariano Lacson Road, Talisay-Bata Border, Talisay City, Negros Occidental.
