18 Places to see and visit in Iloilo

I started my journey on discovering the rest of my hometown when I got an offer from Marine Wildlife Institute of the Philippines, Up Adcore and Helicam Philippines for a collaboration. As somebody who grew up in Manila and was so used to living with a very busy lifestyle, the drastic changes of moving to a laid back culture got me shocked yet amazed in another sense. As one of the chosen tourism ambassadors of the province to promote and spread awareness on taking care of our dear planet Earth, I honestly, felt really torn between two parties.

As a travel blogger I’m responsible for lifting up the country’s tourism but I would also like to consider that this profession requires me to balance promotion with encouraging my readers to travel responsibly. To cut it short, I would like to let you guys know that as much as excited I am to share the enormously gorgeous destinations Iloilo province can offer, I would also be very happy if each and everyone of you would be able to keep the beauty and the elegance brought by the places you are about to explore and discover along this blog. That would not only make me very happy but would also give mother earth the chance to rejuvenate and showcase its beauty to the younger generation more than we could ever imagine.

Along with my adventures, I opted to list down the top most recommended places to see and visit in Iloilo Province. Read along and prepare to be astonished by Iloilo. (The places we’ve visited are arranged randomly and does not indicate any ranking at all.)
