My Second Time in The Ruins of Bacolod - A Side Trip Experience Before Heading to Dumaguete

The ruins is one of my favorite spot in Negros Occidental and also good venue for weddings & family reunions, considering the effort to reach this place. I made sure to enjoy very minute of my second visit to this place. There is no visitor were around during my early trip visit, so I must say that this is a romantic, quiet & relaxing place to be with. Also, taking photos at the glass table mirror where you can use it to nice reflection effect.They offers free parking at the back. Entrance Fees: For Adults - Php 60.00, Students & Senior Citizens with ID - Php 40.00 & Children (Below 8 years old) - Php 20.00. Did you know that: The ruins is one of the 12 most fascinating ruins in the world, known to be the Taj Mahal of Negros & one of the best and romantic landmarks in the Philippines. I like the fountain and garden infront of the old ruins and whole ground have been maintained by the owner.

Don't forget to bring your fully-charged battery to shot take photo on this fascinating experience of the place. I appreciated the details of the structural design.

Negros Occidental: Other Side of The Ruins in Talisay

I was so captivated with the charm & ambiance of the place.They also have 18 hole mini golf course and big cheese board at the side of the ruins which some guest could try the game and can do it your friends and family new recreational activity. The area is covered with gree-grass & ornamental plants. Well, the whole area is clean & maintained which is really I love the angle of ruins from this side of the park. The beauty of the place was still stunning set in the middle of the sugarcane fields and about 15 minutes away from the highway of Barangay Bata. The best time to go to is about 4:30 in the afternoon to give you time to enjoy the scenery before the sun is about to set.  If your hungry during the our, you can enjoy good foods in their cafe & restaurant right beside the mini golf course area. They also have a cupid & women statue facing the old ruins. This place is worth the visit.

A Museum Inside The Ruins of Talisay, Negros Occidental

A must see-art gallery museum in Talisay, Negros Occidental is the remnants famous ruins in the province owned by Don Mariano L. Lacson, an old mansion. They have a lot of old painting, plates and other memorable pieces by the owner. There is a feeling of old romance and mystery surrounding the place. It will probably awe you when you see it up close and personally. It's the sense of pride you can take from the place and also have a cafe and restaurant inside the ruins that's beside their souvenir shop.  This is my second time to visit the place and I'm so very amazed that the structure still stands after being purposely destroyed during World War II. Although it sits in the middle of a wide sugarcane plantation, it's fairly accessible to people.
