Went to Iloilo City without any definite itinerary. Good thing I was travelling with a blogger friend who invited me to join his trip when one of our other friend could not join him. He came in prepared with his own well-planned itinerary which I was glad that he did. Here is a quick and useful travel guide around Iloilo City:

How To Get To Iloilo City

The Iloilo International Airport serves the general area of the city and it’s neighboring towns, and cities as the regional hub of Western Visayas. It is accessible by air, sea, and land travel.

Where To Stay & Cheap Accommodations

You can find comfortable accommodations at Iloilo City. Around January though, if you have plans to travel during the city fiesta, I suggest that book 2-3 months ahead because available accommodation can run out and finding a place to stay would be very difficult. You can try book online, or find you’re preferred accommodation and directly book with them.

The City Streets & Structures

The city streets itself is an adventure for the traveler. You will find old architecture, and historical sites just walking along the busy streets. You will also find that the locals are very friendly, and will easily assist you with directions.

  • San Jose Church
  • Plaza Libertad
  • Bahay Panlalawigan ng Iloilo
  • University of the Philippines – Visayas
  • Iloilo Esplanade

Some Churches, and Historical Sites

The City has numerous historical churches located at different parts of the city. For those that enjoy researching, or looking at the old, you will find how religion is deeply rooted at Iloilo City. You will also find that these structures are not renovated to take on a modern look which you will enjoy.

  • San Jose Church
  • Jaro Cathedral and Bellfry
  • Molo Church

A Day at a Museum

Apart from churches, and old city, and provincial offices, you will find that the old houses of prominent families in the province has opened their homes for visitors.
