Introducing Bacolod

Bacolod has an unfair reputation among travellers as being little more than a transport hub. While it may not be much to look at, a scrappy concrete sprawl, those who hang around will find it’s a place of culture and a town of foodies – offering the best eating in the Visayas. While other Filipinos may gossip that Bacolodians are elitist, an image that stems from it being one of the wealthiest regions of the Philippines courtesy of the sugar trade, this doesn’t faze the friendly locals of the ‘City of Smiles’ who wear their fine taste like a badge of honour.
