Iloilo Tour

June 19, 2016 – I arrived at around 4pm in Iloilo port. Public utility vehicles were accessible on the port. SinceΒ I don’t know where I’m going πŸ˜…, IΒ rodeΒ a taxi going to the inn where I had booked online for accommodation.

At around 5pm, IΒ went out of the inn and take a stroll of Iloilo City.

Ride a jeep bound for MoloΒ Plaza. Fare is Php7.

1. River Esplanade. Take an afternoon stroll on the boardwalk of Iloilo River Esplanade.






For dinner, Smallville or Plazuela de Iloilo.

2. Molo Church

  • Just walkingΒ distance from River Esplanade and located near Molo Plaza

The following morning, I travelled going to southern Iloilo.

  • Ride a jeep going to Molo. Drop off at the jeepney stop nearΒ Iloilo Supermart Molo.
  • Ride a jeep bound to San Joaquin. Fare is Php60. Travel time is around 1 hour.

On the way to the town of San Joaquin, you will pass through many bridges, I can’t remember anymore how many bridges above the rivers we passed through.

3. San Joaquin Cemetery.

  • Located just beside the hi-way

From here, ride a motorcycle going to San Joaquin Church. Fare is Php7.

4. San Joaquin Church.



Walk going to the hi-way and wait for a jeep bound for Iloilo or Miagao. Fare is Php15.

5. Miagao Church.


Be amazed of the church’s intricate carved design.

Miagao Church is a UNESCO Heritage site.


You may also add in your itinerary:

  • GuimbalΒ Church and Plaza
  • Tigbuan Church

Went back to the inn and checked-out. Next destination is Jaro, Iloilo before heading to Kalibo, Aklan.

Ride a jeep going Jaro Terminal (it is where the Ceres Bus bound for Kalibo were located).

With limited time (because I woke up late), I was not able to take a tour in Jaro on the following:

  • Jaro Plaza
  • Jaro Cathedral and Belfry
  • Lopez White House
  • LizaresΒ Mansion
  • Casa Mariquit

Something to look forward when I come back! 😊

Hoping for more travels and crazy adventures! 😊
