The streets of Negros and Iloilo-A A +A
Saturday, July 26, 2014
WILE Davao is steeped in history, we have to admit that this does not go with a good number of old houses and buildings to see and explore.
Thus, the opportunity to gawk at such structures is always a treat, now made even easier to grab with Cebu Pacific’s Davao-Iloilo and Davao-Bacolod flights.
The recent media familiarization tour was such an opportunity and I cannot snap enough photos just to bring home a glimpse of the excitement we had there.
My favorite remains to be the Central Azucarera de La Carlota vintage steam-powered train, but that’s because I have always been fascinated with steam engines. The train may no longer be running, but it was still a big treat to be able to climb on it, and yes, have photos to bring home.
Cebu Pacific serves the Davao-Bacolod route every Tuesday, Thursday, and Saturday, while it has a daily flight to Iloilo. Thus, in just an hour, you’re out there, gawking at old structures and getting a taste of what the Ilonggos have all been boasting about.
