Bacolod

Just came back from a week in Bacolod: a city that never fails to make me feel recharged after each visit.

I love how every part of Negros is still so green and provincial. Fields upon fields of sugarcane greet you at every turn, the air is clean and the light is just better. Each meal tastier than the next, because if there’s one group that know how to eat, it’s the Negrenses.

Here are some snaps from my week. In case you plan to visit in the near future, you can find some of my recommendations below.
