Welcome to Iloilo


Badly fading grandeur defines the congested old city, which is basically everything south of Iloilo River and east of its tributary, the Dungon River. The future is being cast to the north and west, in the Mandurriao district, from the riverside Esplanade and vibrant Smallville complex and on to the Megaworld Iloilo Business Park near the ever metastasising SM City mall.
