What's up, earthlings?! This weekend has been extremely productive for me. I just finished editing my very first travel vlog (click to see the vlog), and now I'm writing about last weekend's trip to Bacolod. I'm kinda proud of myself at the moment.. it didn't take me another two/three months to post about the trip. Yay me!

Bacolod had been part of my to-go list since last year. Every time there was an airline seat sale, the very first destination I look up was Bacolod. Luckily, there was a promo in Traveloka that got me and my friends a PHP 1,200+ off from plane tickets. It was such a bargain that we didn't think twice on purchasing the tickets.

Our flight to Bacolod was early Saturday morning. We were only in Bacolod over the weekend, so we're trying to make most out of the time while we were there. The moment we landed in Silay airport, we went immediately to the hostel to drop our bags and start our adventures.

The very first destination for the trip was Lakawon Island. We took an hour bus ride from Bacolod to reach to Cadiz. From the Cadiz bus terminal, we rode a tricycle to the port where the ferries to Lakawon Island were docked. Lakawon Island is famous for its white sand beaches and Tawhai floating bar.

We spent most of our time in Tawhai floating bar. The place was so chill. You could get drinks and snacks, swim around bar and take a jump on the giant floater. One interesting fact of this bar is that it rotates throughout the day. If you are ever going to Lakawon, you should definitely not miss out on Tawhai Floating bar. 

We ended the first day of our trip trying out the famous Bacolod Chicken Inasal.

On the second day, we were off to Perth Paradise Resort. 

Perth Paradise Resort is located in Sipalay, southern part of Negros Occidental. This resort is famous for its infinity pool, overlooking a number of islands on the sea. The view is Negros's own version of the Hundred Islands. It was just so picturesque.

On the last day of the trip, since our flights were still on the evening, we decided to go the Ruins and Campuestohan Highland Resort.

We went to the Ruins first thing in the morning. The mansion in the Ruins was a remnant of World War II. The Ruins was designed to be a memoir of Don Mariano Lacson's wife. This tourist spot is like Philippines's version of Taj Mahal.

We were pretty glad that there weren't much people in the area by the time we went to the Ruins. It made the photos a lot easier to take! Hahaha!

Before heading out to Campuestohan, we had our sumptuous lunch in the famous Chicken House along Lacson street.

Last stop before heading back to Manila was Campuestohan Highland Resort.

Campuestohan is like a resort and theme park all in one. The resort is located on the mountainside of Talisay, Negros Occidental. Campuestohan resort offers theme park rides, swimming pools and thrilling activities that you can try. This place was so massive and there were really a number of exciting things to do that you could fully get the value of your money.

So that ends our three-day trip in Bacolod! The trip was short but it was enough time to get us to the places I really wanted to visit.

Of course this trip wouldn't be that fun if it weren't for this gang. 💖

See you again on our next destination!
