Where to Stay in Bacolod City?

If you’re looking for a cheap and safe place to stay in Bacolod City, I highly recommend Pleasant Travelers Pension House.

Taxi drivers in Bacolod knows this place very well. It is conveniently located in Lacson Avenue. SM City Bacolod, North / South Bus Terminals and the plaza are just a jeep away from here. Some are even walking distance like the Negros Provincial Capitol, Lagoon, Bongbong’s Souvenir and Calea Pastries. There are also convenience stores and restaurants nearby.

We are a group of 4 and stayed for 4D3N. Our total bill was 4,680.03. Each night costs 1560 and divided by 4, each only paid 390 per night. Not bad.

The staff are very approachable if you need help with your stay and they are very knowledgeable when it comes to directions or your itinerary.

Here are the pictures I took during our stay.

Lakawon Island – A Paradise in Negros Occidental

On the spur of the moment during Cebu Pacific’s #PisoFare early this year, without any local destination in mind, I just picked Bacolod out of the blue. I had 7 months to prepare however, it was only a few days before our trip, till I finally realized where were going! A dose of vitamin sea of course!

Lakawon Island is the perfect choice since it is just approximately an hour away from the capital, Bacolod City. Lakawon Island itinerary? No need! You can get conquer this on a day tour!

HOW TO GO TO LAKAWON ISLAND?

From your hotel, go to Bacolod North Bus Terminal. Ride a bus going to San Carlos and drop off at Brgy San Andres Terminal. Just tell the bus conductor you’re going to Lakawon Island. From Brgy San Andres Terminal, ride a trike going to Cadiz Viejo Port and there’s your boat going to Lakawon Island.

LAKAWON ISLAND EXPENSES

Below is a quick summary of expenses. First 3 items are back and forth cost.

TIPS

– Ordinary buses are faster and cheaper!
– There are 2 places named Cadiz, one is the city, the other is the port called Cadiz Viejo. Don’t be like us, we first arrived at the city instead and then headed back to the port haha
– The earlier you get there, the better! The boat won’t leave until it is full unless you pay for every seat.
– Bring lots of foods and drinks! This will save you a ton!
– Don’t rent a cottage (P600 is the cheapest), instead opt for their Floating Bar. This was actually suggested by the reception, glad we did!
– Last trip of the boat is 5PM.

As you get closer to the island, you’ll see a large floating boat. That’s TawHai Floating Bar, the biggest floating bar in Asia.

Lakawon Island – indeed a must visit when you’re in Negros. The waters are calm and the sands are fine. Even kids would definitely have a great time in this island. Beautiful and picturesque! Party goers would even enjoy this, there’s party music everywhere and they can go drinking all day 😀
