Bacolod, Philippines

Bacolod is one of the most interesting destination spots in Visayas. The city is the capital of Negros Occidental, and is best known for the Maskara Festival which is celebrated in the month of October. The Maskara Festival is the local version of the Mardi Gras, which showcases masked dancers, carnivals, food and drinks.

Going to Bacolod is very convenient as well. If you are going to take a boat, it will take approximately 18 hours from Manila. Bacolod is the place to be for seafood lovers. Fresh oysters are a great delicacy in this city. Of course, never leave Bacolod without tasting the city's number one dish, which is Chicken Inasal. Do not worry about getting lost in this big city because there are only two main roads with the others along those roads. Bacolod is also known for its old unpainted houses, fresh fruit stores, scenic mountain views, and very friendly people.
