Bacolod in Philippines
Who’s been here?
Latest updates from our Bacolod travelers
Bacolod is located 45 minutes South of Manila by plane. Commercial flights are available daily. If flying in to the Ninoy Aquino international airport in Manila you will have to change planes for the 45 minute hop to Bacolod. You will land at the new Bacolod-Silay Airport of international standards, and could use the bus to get to the city proper.
Transportation within the city and to adjacent towns is by taxi or jeepney (local equivalent of a bus). Bus liners as well as rental cars are also available for travel.
When to go
Bacolod is a lot safer compared to Manila. As always common sense is the rule when travelling. Be weary of Shopping-Libertad jeepneys, especially TOUCHMOVE LINES, UYTIEPO LINES, GUSTILO LINES and MADRE DE GRACIA LINES for they can get you late when traveling or give you a heart attack when they're in a hurry. Drivers are driving like in a post apocalyptic world pretending to be Mel Gibson in Mad Max, so better be careful. Most of the jeepney drivers in Bacolod City are from Iloilo City.
