Located on the western side of Negros Islands, Negros Occidental is the "Sugar Bowl of the Philippines." The province is the leading producer of sugar in the country producing half of the nation's supply. Aside from being an important agricultural province, Negros Occidental is a distinct tourist destination. Its culture is a fascinating mix of local culture, colonial, and modern influences.

The capital city of Bacolod is known as the "City of Smiles" because of its friendly residents. Bacolod is also a fast-growing economy and hub for Information Technology and Business Process Outsourcing services. A great place to visit while there is the San Sebastian Cathedral, the seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of the city. It was initially built as a small church in 1876, and was declared a cathedral in 1933. The famous MassKara Festival is held every October and is the biggest masquerade in the Philippines. The event is a haven for photographers as the city becomes a lively and vibrant with the locals wearing colorful masks and costumes. Parades, street dances, beauty pageants, and fireworks displays all make the festival the most famous attraction in Bacolod.

Talisay City is a charming spot on Negros Occidental because of The Ruins, a shell of a great mansion that was burned down during World War II. The Ruins was built in the 1900s by a certain Don Mariano Ledesma Lacson in memory of his wife Maria Braga. The mansion is a picturesque structure built in Italian architecture. It "glows" in a lovely shade of yellow whenever the sun is about to set.  



By Air
Bacolod-Silay International Airport in Silay City services flights from Metro Manila. You can catch a flight with either Cebu Pacific Air or Philippine Airlines. Travel time takes about more or less an hour.
 


By Sea
Bredco Pier in Bacolod City serves ferries from Metro Manila. You can book a ferry ride through 2GO Travel. The cruise takes about 20 to 27 hours.
 


By Land
While there are no direct bus trips to Negros Occidental, you can just take a bus to Iloilo City via bus lines like Philtranco. After arriving in Iloilo, hop on a FastCat ferry to get to Bacolod. Total travel time takes about 22 hours.
 


How to Get Around
By Taxi
Taxis are the preferred mode of transportation from the airport to Bacolod City.
 
By Jeepney and Tricycle
Jeepneys and the roomy tricycle version of Negros Occidental are great means of getting around in short distances.
 
By Bus
A bus ride is enlisted for greater distances. Ceres bus can take you to other towns within the province as well as other destinations in the Visayas like Cebu.


What to See
Negros Occidental is full of history and culture as seen in its myriad of cultural and heritage sites. However, your visit to this province should not just be limited to heritage tours. Negros Occidental also has a wealth of natural wonders where you can commune with nature.
 
Landmarks
When it comes to landmarks in Negros Occidental, the heritage houses are on top of the list.
 
The ancestral houses of Silay City are a must-see. Thirty of them are declared as historical landmarks by the National Historical Commission, making Silay City the second "Museum City" in the country next to Vigan. To name a few, there's the Balay Negrense (also known as the Victor Fernandez Gaston Ancestral House), the Bernardino Lopez Jalandoni House, and the Manuel Seferino Hofileña House. Some of them are open to the public so you can see some artifacts and memorabilia that will give you an idea of how affluent families lived back in the day.
 
Meanwhile, Talisay City is best known for The Ruins. This imposing structure is what remains of the ancestral house built by sugar baron Don Mariano Ledesma Lacson for his wife. The house is of Italian architecture and features a palatial manicured garden.
 
Aside from heritage houses, other landmarks you can visit include the San Sebastian Cathedral and Bishop's Palace, Pope John Paul II Tower, the Capitol Park and Lagoon, and the neoclassical Capitol Building, all of which are in Bacolod City.
 
Natural Attractions
Beach bums would be delighted to know that Negros Occidental has several beaches and islands.
Danjugan Island is a marine conservation located in the town of Cauayan, which is three to four hours away from Bacolod City. You can frolic on the sand and take a dip in refreshing seawaters. It is also a popular snorkeling and diving site.
 
Another protected marine reserve is Carbin Reef in Sagay City, some two to three hours away from Bacolod City. This sandbar features white sand shores and azure waters perfect for swimming and snorkeling.
 
The beaches of Sipalay City are not to be missed as well. One of them is Sugar Beach, which, as the name suggests, features fine sand that resembles the color of washed brown sugar.
 
The natural beauty of Negros Occidental is not just limited to its wonderful coastline. The province also has its version of the Chocolate Hills, which you can catch a glimpse of when you pass by the Eco-translink Highway in the town of Don Salvador Benedicto. This town is also dubbed as the "Summer Capital of Negros Occidental" because of its cool climate just like in Baguio. Just near Don Salvador Benedicto is San Carlos City, where you can find the Codcod Rice Terraces.
 
You can also go on a trek to Mag-aso Falls in Kabankalan City and reward yourself with a dip in its refreshing waters. For hiking enthusiasts, a hike up to Mt. Kanlaon's summit is definitely a must.
 
Man-Made Attractions
Mambukal Resort is a hub of relaxation and recreation in the town of Murcia. This resort lets you enjoy a nature experience as well as access to recreational facilities. There are some warm sulfur dipping pools if you want to relax and seven waterfalls if you're up for a trek. Other activities you can enjoy include boating, wall climbing, and bat watching.
 
Negros Forests and Ecological Foundation also lets you get closer to nature. This zoo, which is run by a non-profit organization, aims to protect endangered species such as rare birds and local deer. While there is no entrance fee, you can leave a donation to help their cause.
 
Events and Festivals
Sinulog de Kabankalan is celebrated in Kabankalan City every January in honor of the Sto. Niño. Much like the Sinulog of Cebu, this event features colorful parades and lively street dances.
 
Meanwhile, Masskara Festival is Bacolod City's pride. It is celebrated annually during the weekend closest to October 19. As a symbol of the resilience of the locals, they don colorful happy smiling masks during the street dances.

Meanwhile, Byron's Back Ribs' grilled meat menu is perfect for carnivores.
 
If you're in the mood for some international flavors, head to Golden Fortune Restaurant for Chinese food, Rau Ram Cafe for  Vietnames dishes, and Tyrol to try Austrian cuisine. For dessert, have a slice of any of the cakes at Calea or the tasty guapple pie from El Ideal Restaurant.
