Our Jump Point

Last year, my friends and I decided to go to Guimaras for some little RnR. Our initial plan was to go there immediately but because of some unfortunate conflict of schedule with one of my friend, we decided to spend the night in Ilo-Ilo first. Not an entirely bad thing because we haven't been to IloIlo and exploring it could be fun. So before heading to our Inn, I took a flyer to guide us around the city

Exploring the City

After resting, we decided to do some exploring. With the flyer in my hand, we asked the kind lady in the front desk to give us directions. Fairly enough, Ilo-Ilo's city route is very easy to navigate so we didn't got lost--a lot, hahaha! All the public transportation has a signage in them so it's not that hard to know what jeep to take.

The city has a lot of old churches and century houses that you could appreciate, after that it's a good idea to sample the city's famous La Paz Batchoy and other food stuff. It's a great city to go food tripping

In Search of a night life

Ilo-Ilo's night life is very laid back--or maybe because it was November 1 when we were there. But anyway, there were party places but you could see the locals gathered in coffee shops and open aired restaurants. I'm not one to complain because this one I like--really.
