Negros Occidental Travel Guide

The province of Negros Occidental in Western Visayas, Philippines, may seem like a laidback destination at first sight. But look further and you will find several touristic gems that will set your adrenaline high.

The capital city of Bacolod is on top of the list of must-visits in the province for its annual carnival called Masskara Festival and for its various attractions, ranging from heritage sites to landmark buildings and elite food hubs. You cannot ignore the other town’s offerings either. Take time to visit The Ruins of Talisay City, Mambukal Mountain Resort of Murcia, Carbin Reef of Sagay City, Danjugan Island of Cauayan, and Sugar Beach of Sipalay so you can have the best Negros Occidental experience.

Negros Occidental is well-served by Bacolod-Silay Airport. You may also reach it via ferry from Cebu, Iloilo, Guimaras Island, and Dumaguete City.
