Iloilo Things to Do

  • Take a picture at the Jaro Belfry

    The Jaro belfry is just in front of the Jaro Cathedral so there is no way that you'll miss it. This is the only belfry that is not attached to the cathedral itself

  • Visit Jaro Cathedral

    A big part of your activity in IloIlo is to check out the old churches around the city. The Jaro Cathedral is one of them and I think one of the most accesible churches around. Just ride a jeepney with a Jaro signage and ask the driver to drop you off the Cathedral. It's that easy!What I like about this place is that, it's adjacent to the Jaro...

    If you are interested in flowers and plants, take time to look at them. In Iloilo, there are plenty of them! Definitely the cheapest! No fees required. Just a little motivation and a little bit of a " garden enthusiasm" from yourself.

    The Avenue at IloIlo is a trendy laid back night spot. It is a collection of bars and restaurants in the middle of hotels and other commercial building. For me, it is the most modern place I've seen in IloIlo city. This place is perfect for chilling out and people watching.

    In going to Boracay, one alternative cheap fare tips would i suggest. Indeed, planes would be more expensive going back route to Cebu bound from Caticlan airport. But, just an experienced, we prefer van for hire going to Ilo-ilo City then boat to Cebu rather than booked an aircraft. We arrived at Ilo-ilo port around 5:30pm. while waiting on board, we go to their city preferably at Jollibee to buy foods for dinner. The regular fare is 750.00 but luckily, we discounted the price at only P500.00 each person then much we saved a P500.00 since we are two.

    Piaya is very famous snack in Negros and Panay Islands and would make a nice pasalubong (souvenir gift) for someone at home. Cristy Cordero in Iloilo makes a wonderful piaya and is well worth going out of your way to buy some. A piaya is a muscovado-filled unleavened flatbread and is made by filling dough with a mixture of muscavado and glucose syrup. The dough is flattened using a rolling pin, sometimes sprinkled with sesame seeds and cooked on a griddle. Sometimes it is filled with UBE (purple yam ) or mango.

    NOTE
    Muscavado sugar has only 11 calories per teaspoon and is richer than brown sugar or refined white sugar, and contains all the natural minerals found in sugarcane juice.
