BY AIR: Manila / Cebu / Cagayan de Oro / Davao – Iloilo City
1] It takes 45-55 minutes from Manila, 25-30 minutes from Cebu, 45 mins from Cagayan de Oro, and 1H from Davao. The Iloilo International Airport is 30 minutes away from the city proper.
BY SEA: Manila / Puerto Princesa / Cebu / Cagayan de Oro / Bacolod – Iloilo City
1] It takes 20H from Manila, 12H from Cebu, 14H from Cagayan de Oro, and 38H from Davao.
2] If you’re traveling from Bacolod City, the ferry is only 1H with several trips daily.
- If you can not get a direct flight to Iloilo City, the next best option is to get a flight to Bacalod-Silay International Airport.
- From the airport, you can travel to to port, and take the 1H ferry to Iloilo City.
- The thing I like about Iloilo City that every point of entry is a visible tourism information desk where there are available maps, and warm locals to help plan your next route or help you go around the city or to your next destination.
