Quick Side Trip in Iloilo City & College Friends Meet-Up

I advised my friend a week before that I'll be in Iloilo for a solo backpacking trip. We had meet up at Green Mango Restaurant near the Iloilo City Hall with Paul & Weng and then ordered their famous canton guisado, fried chicken, fish fillet, rice and braso de mercedez for the dessert. The prize range is affordable and service is good. Just visit their place at Zamora Street ( fronting Iloilo City Hall & Plaza Libertad) Iloilo City.So I make sure to get a full tummy before heading to Bacolod City on my 2nd blog anniversary. After a quick lunch with college friends, we take photos in front of Plaza Libertad (formerly Plaza Alfonso) & City Hall. The plaza is clean and beautifully organized. It is a some 5 minutes walk towards the Iloilo port via 2go Travel bound to Bacolod City, Negros Occidental continuing my solo journey to Dumaguete & Siquijor.

Iloilo International Airport : One of the Best Airport in My 2013 Travels

I have a 9:30am flight bound to Iloilo City then en-route to the Province of Capiz (my hometown) via Cebu Pacific Air. The new airport have modern technology, service and accredited as a qualifier for internationals standards which is determined by the International Civil Aviation (ICA) Organization. I also wondered when I first heard of it so I pushed through my booking via Iloilo, in order me to experience this first class facilities which the airport is offers and I am happy that their maintain the good service to the passengers. I think the new airport is definitely way better than the old one. The arrival area is clean and modernized facilities while outside the airport, I have a good view with the green plants and tall trees. About the transportation in Iloilo International Airport? You don't need to go to the main road to get a cab. There are a lot of taxi & van services upon getting out the area which is some agents are offering taxi/van services in a minimal charges and they are organized. They will drop you off at SM City Iloilo where you can take a lot of connecting routes around the city like jeepney, multicab & van hire. No hassle!
