Erman and I took our first trip to Bacolod last year to witness the famous Masskara festival. The Masskara festival is a 3 week long celebration featuring colorful costumes, parades and street dancing. More on the history of the festival here.
As soon as our plane landed at the Bacolod-Silay airport I could only think of one thing and that was Chicken Inasal! Since it was still too early to check in the hotel, we headed to the nearest mall to eat :)
After a very yummy lunch, we headed to Bob's for dessert! Bob's Restaurant was highly recommended by our friends from Bacolod. The cakes definitely did not disappoint :)
Westown Hotel in Lacson Street. We were very pleased when we found out that the hotel is very accessible to everything - the mall, the festivities and public transportation. The rooms are brand new and rates are very reasonable too!
