About Iloilo City:
Food is one of Iloilo’s biggest year-round attractions with La Paz Batchoy, a noodle soup made from pork and beef broth mixed with crisp pork skin and assorted organs, and fresh seafoods are among the must-try ones. The city is also home to many Spanish-colonial churches, grand vintage houses, and old commercial and institutional buildings.
The Iloilo Dinagyang Festival is one of the Philippines’ biggest religious and cultural festivals but equally exciting events include Paraw Regatta Festival, Jaro Fiesta and Chinese New Year.
Pristine beaches are located in Northern Iloilo where the islands of Gigantes, Concepcion, Ajuy, and Sicogon are among the most visited ones. The southern coast of Iloilo, meanwhile, boasts of well-preserved marine sanctuaries and sand beaches.
