A scorching hot weather is expected this week in the city so it’s a good time to go outdoors and explore, but make sure to drive safely when going to mountain destinations. Aside from the good weather, travelers can also look forward to the improvement of Bacolod tourism roads, the construction of a welcome area, and the groundbreaking of the first international hotel in the city.

It will be scorching hot this week in the City of Smiles. According to AccuWeather’s forecast, 34 °C will be the maximum temperature throughout the week [1]. There will be expected rain showers on May 6 and 7 and thunderstorms on May 10 to 12. Bring an umbrella whatever weather conditions are forecast. Since it is summer, it is also recommended to wear light-colored, breathable fabrics.


Traffic News: New tourism road project in Bacolod City



The Bacolod City Council approved the resolution of the City Development Council (CDC) endorsing some local roads to be declared as tourism roads. These local roads are from the area of Barangay Singcang-Airport Lacson Extension to Alijis Road and JR Torres Avenue, BS Aquino Drive, Lopez Jaena Street, and Ferrer Avenue. The declared tourism roads will be funded by the Department of Public Works and Highways (DPWH) and Department of Tourism (DOT) for their rehabilitation and beautification and for drainage and sidewalk construction. As such, these roads should be avoided by tourists when construction starts. (2)


Travel Updates



Groundbreaking of welcome area now set

The groundbreaking of the welcome area to be constructed along airport access road is now set on June 18, 2018. The ceremony also coincides with Bacolod City’s Charter Day and the opening of a new passenger port terminal of the Bacolod Real Estate Development Corporation (BREDCO) [3]. The government aims to finish the welcome area by October, just in time for Masskara Festival.


Construction of first international hotel in progress

Cebu Landmaster’s Inc. officials have signed a joint venture agreement with lot owner Sta. Clara Estate Inc. for the development of an international brand hotel [4]. The firm will carry Ascott International’s Citadine brand which is one of the biggest serviced apartment business in the world. The hotel will consist of 220 rooms. Set to be 16 floors high, it is projected to be tallest building in the city. The firm targets to have their groundbreaking for the hotel project in three to four months.


Tourists advised to drive safely to mountain destinations

Mountain destinations are popular among tourists especially during summer. However, in the past few weeks there have been a lot of road accidents happening especially on the roads leading to these places. Tourists are advised to be more cautious in driving especially if they are heading to Silay, Talisay, and Don Salvador Benedicto where mountain resorts are abundant. For those who are driving via a motorcycle, it is advised to slow down to avoid accidents.
