I love Bacolod!
"The famous chicken barbecue of Bacolod"
When you arrive in Bacolod, ask any local to take you to their favorite chicken inasal (barbecue) place. I did and I was thrilled with the flavors of this great dish. There are quite a number of restaurants specializing in "chicken inasal" so expect to try quite a number of them.
This city is overflowing with sugar cane! A nearby drive to a "hacienda" will let you witness sugar cane being planted, harvested and brought to their respective mills. I asked a farmer if I could try one. He happily gave me some.
"Take a leisurely walk in the city center"
You will find the capitol building facing a huge man made pond and the nearby shops will be interesting as well.
