My first trip to Bacolod City was truly one for the books. Not only because I traveled with friends but also because we traveled during the holiday break. As expected, buses were filled to the rafters, and inter-island travel was basically just a pain in the neck.
However, despite all the pushing and shoving, we reached Bacolod safe and sound. Here are some of my photographs of this lovely city.
After more than an hour of travel, the bus finally stopped in Toledo City for a quick food and bathroom break.
Thirty minutes later, everyone was back on the bus. From the restaurant, the bus proceeded to the Toledo City port.
Goodbye, Cebu! And see you Bacolod in a few hours.
A couple of hours later, we reached the city of Talisay. Talisay is a city in Negros Occidental that sits right next to Bacolod.
Bacolod is exactly like Cebu City — only quieter and less stressful.
The city also has its very own SM Supermall.
Bacolod also has a Robinsons Mall and an Ayala Mall called The District.
Although I almost tried dining at Seafood Island both in Subic and in Cebu, my very first time was actually in Bacolod.
Of course, we also checked out the pride of Bacolod City — Calea Pastries and Cakes.
Let’s just say we truly enjoyed the experience.
