Iloilo is one of the six provinces of Western Visayas Region. It is our access point in the other three provinces, Antique, Capiz, and Guimaras. Iloilo International Airport was opened in 2007 in replace of Mandurriao Airport.


We stayed at Ong Bun Pension House, a common name for backpackers because of its affordable room rates. Strategically located in the business district of Iloilo, walking distance to malls and very accessible to public transportation. Rooms are clean and well-maintained, staff are friendly and helpful.


Like Negros Occidental, Iloilo has its fair share of ancestral houses one of which is the Ledesma Mansion. This is actually not part of our itinerary, but you will not miss this huge ancestral house if you are going to Guimaras via Ortiz wharf. Located at the corner of Ortiz and General Blanco St., it was built in 1928 by Don Celso Ledesma and was well-preserved by Don Zaffy Ledesma, third generation of the Ledesma clan.

A Filipina who loves to travel. Born with a family of travelers and started traveling when she was just 2months old. Raised in the hustle and bustling life of the metro but has savored the laid back lifestyle of the countryside during summer vacations. At a very young age, she has experienced being stranded on a train for 3 days, being thrown inside the window of the bus just to save a seat and “top loaded” (riding on the roof) on a PUJ just to reach their destination. …Traveling became her adventure since then.
