Destination: Iloilo City

Iloilo is set in a graceful repose between Iloilo and Batiano rivers forming an angle of a nose. Hence, its old name “Ilong-Ilong” which means “noselike”. Mountain ranges with peaks as high as almost 7,000 ft. provide natural boundaries between Iloilo and Antique on the west and Capiz on the north. The rest of mainland Iloilo is largely plain with interspersing upland portions. it is located in the center of the Philippine archipelago. Strategically located 283 statute miles from Manila, it is the gateway to the flourishing region that is Western Visayas. The province comprises the southeastern part of Panay Island. it was once dubbed as the "Queen City of the South" and now striving harder to regain its title. Iloilo is combination of both worlds as they say "So Old Yet So New" the city houses few of the oldest churches in the Philippines not to mention old ancestral house dated back during Spanish era. that's not all aside from having old and modern attraction Iloilo is also a great place for nature lovers as white pretine beaches that can rival those of boracay and palawan is just a few minutes away from the city proper. numerous islands located in the neighboring municipalities. iloilo is not only famous for its historical site,modern city and great beaches. but Iloilo People is consider as one of the most Friendliest People in the Philippines they are Sweet and Have Great Smiles So Beware you might fall in love in your visit.
