I'm planning a trip to the Philippines for sometime in January 2015 (or possibly sooner). I don't speak Ilonggo or Tagalog but I can understand them both. And, since it has been years since I've visited, I'm no longer familiar with the city. I have a few questions (ok, a lot!) and I'd really appreciate your help :)
- I will be traveling with my very blond, very American BF, who has never been to the Philippines. I want to show him just how welcoming and friendly Filipinos can be. Are there any fun destinations you might recommend that will showcase Filipino hospitality? (We are a young couple in our early 20's and 30's)
- I have family in Bago as well as Bacolod and would love to visit them both. What is the best way to travel between those cities?
- Is L'Fisher still the best hotel in Bacolod? ;)
- Since I don't want to task my relatives with playing tour guide, are there local tour guides you can recommend to show us around for a day or two?
- I'm a huge foodie, and I miss authentic Filipino food so much. I have been telling my BF about chicken inasal, which I can't find anywhere in East Coast USA. Who serves the best chicken inasal? Other restaurant recommendations would be great!
- Before we return to the US, we would like to visit Palawan or Boracay for at least 2 nights. What is the best way to get to either destinations from Bacolod? What is your favorite resort/hotel in those locations?
Thanks so much for your time, and I look forward to making many friends here. Maybe I'll even see some of you when I visit! :)
