Trikes, or tricycles are actually a small motorcycle or moped with a sidecar attached. It's only about 7 pesos per ride (14 cents) and as many people as possible cram into these. Seriously, I saw some that had 10 people hanging off every inch of the trike, even sitting on the roof.

Like any other place, big and small in the Philippines, the most inexpensive way of going around is by jeepney. This vehicle was adapted to the jeeps used by American GIs during WW2.
Now it has taken several versions, showcasing Filipino creativity and innovation all through these years. Iloilo boasts of its own artsy jeepneys.
Taking a ride costs P7.50 to maximum 4km, with fare escalating depending on the distance of your destination.

A relatively new taxi company, they give the impression of professionalism in handling difficult customers like me. Their fleet of taxis, mostly Toyota Innovas are new, clean and driven by a well-dressed and knowledgeable driver. I also noticed the driver's defensive driving skills. When one haggles for a fixed rate and tried the meter for good measure, you'll find that the difference is very little.
I also noticed a separate direct line for any complaints.

Island-hopping the Visayas Islands is easy and affordable with Roros plying the nearest point-to-point between islands. Coming from Bacolod and bound for Panay Island, Dumangas Port in Iloilo City is the nearest docking point. There are about 3 shipping companies serving the route. We took the Jomalia Shipping's M/V Mika Mari. It coud accomodate about 6 10-wheeler trucks and 6 also of cars/vans.
We paid P1300 for our van plus P75 per passenger for the 2 1/2 hour crossing. Btw, the port is about 10km drive to the City Center.

Yes, jeepneys are a uniquely Pinoy creation, and Ilonggos do take their jeepneys very seriously - going the extra mile in producing what could be the most modern and most upbeat version of this Pinoy road Icon.
The jeepneys in Iloilo City are modern, sleek and simply fun to ride. Unlike their more colorful, more traditional Manila cousins, Iloilo City jeepneys sport a more modern look with their streamlined and well-polished exteriors and cozy interiors equipped with state-of-the-art audio systems to entertain riders.
In addition to aesthetics, the jeepneys also serve as important modes of inter-city trasportation linking the city center to the suburbs. They are the cheapest and most convenient way to get around the city and to tour the city sights - and even beyond!

The fastest way to get to Iloilo is by plane, fare costs around 2,000, i think. Air Philippines, Cebu Pacific, and Philippine Airlines offer Iloilo-Manila and vice-versa flights.

Very modern clean and manned by friendly and efficient people. The road to the city is clean and well-maintained but the trip is quite long: 30-45 mins. depending on the traffic.
