One of the best things you’ll experience here is the ‘Manamit’ foods that will make your mouth drool.

The following are the things you should not miss out:
The Ruins in Talisay City
Sugar Baron Don Mariano Ledesma Lacson was the owner of this old home. He gave this as a gift to his wife, Maria Braga Lacson. Its architecture design came from the Italian style with neo-Romanesque twin columns.
Once you visit the place, you’ll still see the remaining beauty you’ve never seen before.

Visit Mambukal Mountain Resort and Nature Park
For nature lovers, don’t forget to include in your itinerary the oldest resort in the province, Mambukal Mountain Resort. At 1,200 meters above sea level, it is also one of the highest mountain resorts, serving as a gateway to the vast and verdant Mt. Kanlaon National Park.
Manokan Country and Chicken Inasal
Manokan country housed a couple dozens of stalls serving Bacolod’s most sought-after Chicken Inasal. This strip is the very heart of barbecue chicken in the Philippines and the serving traditions here are the most authentic way to eat chicken inasal. When you visit there you’ll see food items are displayed at the entrance to the restaurant. You can already order chicken inasal even before you enter.
The Best Bacolod Chicken Inasal for me can be found in Aida’s Manokan. What I like about their Chicken inasal is that it is fresh and juicy. A dash of garlic oil and garlic rice add to the inasal dining experience.
