Backpacking Visayas | Day 4: Bacolod, The City That Made Me Smile (All day)

Day 4 – The Ruins + Great food + Balay Negrense

The part that I was most excited about was the Bacolod leg. As I have always wanted to visit the ruins.

How to get there: Ride a jeepney bound for Bata and tell the driver to drop you off at Pepsi Bottling Plant. There are tricycles waiting there that are ready to take you straight to the Ruins.

Upon arrival, you need to pay P100. You need to walk a little to reach the ruins, then which you can sit down inside while waiting for the tour guide to start. Roger was funny as hell! I actually enjoyed how he explained how the ruins started. It’s dubbed as the Taj Mahal of the Philippines as it was also made out of love for a woman.


Since we came early, there weren’t a lot of people.


Feeling hungry at around 11am, we decided to go to 21 Restaurant, which is located along Lacson, to have lunch.

Must Try: Pepper Steak!

Then, dessert at Calea!


After having dessert, we then got on jeepney to the terminal then took a Silay bound Bus. Ask the conductor to drop you off at El Ideal bakery. From there, you can walk to Balay Negrense.

Then we had to go back to Bacolod and took the Ceres bus to Dumaguete.
