Introducing Iloilo

As regional centres go Iloilo (ee-lo-ee-lo) City is not too daunting. It’s large enough to provide all the big-city comforts but small enough to maintain a down-to-earth provincial vibe, and the sizeable student population keeps the nightlife vibrant. For those planning to explore Panay, or combine a trip to Boracay with nearby Guimaras, Iloilo is an ideal base. ‘Downtown’ Iloilo is surrounded by three old suburbs: Molo, Lapaz (la-pass) and low-lying Jaro.
