PAL adds more domestic airline flights bound to Bacolod
Prominent local airline PAL or Philippine Airlines added airline flights bound to Bacolod City from Manila. They increased flights to five times per day to accommodate increasing domestic flight demand.
This May, since travel and border restrictions have been eased, PAL plans to have more roundtrip flights from Manila to Bacolod, adding evening flight schedules, and increasing flights from Manila to Bacolod to Manila from four flights last April.
PAL will partner with tourism sectors, business sectors, and local governments as they move forward to slowly add more regular flights in urbanized cities and capital provinces in the following months.

Negros Occidental’s heritage homes repurposed to become a tourist place
And when visiting the island of Negros Occidental, which is known for its vibrant culture and artistic affinities, a traveler will appreciate how much the province values its unique art and culture. With this, Negros Occidental decides to repurpose its heritage structures and facilities as homage and respect for the rich ancestry of the province instead of tearing them down and replacing them with modern systems.
First on the list is the Maria Kucina Familia, an old house turned into a restaurant located at 24th St., Bacolod
City. The homey feel of the restaurant is further maintained, featuring al fresco dining, quiet dine-in corners, private rooms, and other facilities in the restaurant for big groups of people and corporate functions.
Another iconic spot is the El Ideal Bakery located in Silay City, also known as the Paris of Negros. The vintage lighting and the maintained heritage façade of the bakery effectively give off a nostalgic feeling to its visitors and customers.
And just near the Paris of Negros is where another heritage structure stands—the Ruins. The Italian design of The Ruins makes it the classic favorite heritage spot in Negros Occidental. The two-story mansion was once owned by sugar baron Don Mariano Ledesma Lacson, and it also is known as the Taj Mahal of Negros. The mansion has been well-maintained throughout the years and has been everyone’s favorite venue for weddings, events, and photoshoots.
With festivals and yearly physical celebrations resuming, a Flores de Mayo art exhibit also launches at SM City Bacolod, which will run until the end of May. Bacolod City Vice Mayor El Cid Familiaran spearheaded the art exhibit’s opening, in which 60 visual artists participated.
The art exhibit features stunning paintings and artworks that enthrall mall-goers and tourists visiting Bacolod City.
