Bacolod City Off The Beaten Path: 32 reviews and 48 photos
The Victorias Milling Corporation compound is about a 50-min. drive from Bacolod City. As you drive through the guardhouse, you won't miss the Iron Dinosaur on your right but also, you will start to smell the strong scent of molasses in the air.
Sugar had been a major export of Negros Island for decades but in the last 20 something years, many farmers have started to diversify to other crops due to the drop of the price of sugar in the world market.
In the bygone days, they say the sugar barons and baronesses (what they used to call the landed rich), would spoon in sugar into their tea and coffee but not stir it because there was just too much sugar in Negros.
