This 2016, the weeklong celebration is a momentous event because of the merging of the provinces of Negros as a one island region. The Panaad sa Negros Festival is dubbed as the “Festival of Festivals” of Negros Occidental province.

How to Get There

From Manila, you can fly to Bacolod (Php2500++, round trip, 45 minutes). From Bacolod-Silay Airport, you can take a shuttle (Php100-150 per head), or a cab (minimum of Php400) and ask to be taken to your hotel or destination in Bacolod City. 

You can also go to Bacolod via ferry (estimated cost of Php2700++ with meal, round trip, 20-22 hours) from Manila. From the port you can hail a cab and ask to be dropped off to your destination anywhere in Bacolod City.

Jeepneys (Php6.50 for regular fare and Php5.00 for senior citizens or students) are the most common and cheapest means of transportation in the city. They have designated routes to follow, so if you're in a rush it's better to get a cab.
