City of Smiles
The capital city of Negros Occidental province, Bacolod boasts a rich foodie culture and vibrant festival scene, especially known for its annual festival of smiles. Now a sprawling urban metropolis, the city arose thanks to a once-thriving sugar industry, evident today in the ubiquitous sweet gelatinous puddings and rich sticky marinades at the renowned range of restaurants and eateries. Tour Bacolod by rickshaw or local "jeepney" bus, visiting its scattered historic sites of sugar plantation ruins, religious shrines, and plazas. With food at the heart of the city's culture, you can delight in an array of tasty treats and meals before heading to the art district for some musical nightlife with friendly locals. Arrange all the small, but important details of your Bacolod trip itinerary using our Philippines holiday planner.
