True to the tagline “The Next Big Thing,” Iloilo is indeed becoming a well-developed city. If you’ve never been to Iloilo for quite a long time, you will definitely notice a lot of significant changes. One big thing that has happened in the past five years is the Iloilo Business Park.

The Iloilo Business Park, which is located at the old airport road in Mandurriao district, is now one of the major lifestyle districts frequented by Ilonggos as well as tourists. The establishment is also home to Festive Walk Mall, a lively lifestyle complex. Curious what’s in the place? Here are the things you can find in this famous spot in the city.

Feast on Ilonggo food and more

No Iloilo visit is complete without having a food trip. Well, food is part of Ilonggo culture, after all. At Festive Walk Mall in Iloilo Business Park, you will find several food stalls serving popular dishes from Iloilo and even other international cuisines. If you’re craving for Ilonggo favorites such as KBL which stands for kadyos (pigeon beans), baboy (pork), and langka (jackfruit), it is being served at Café Panay for PhP325. If you have a big appetite for meat, there is also an unlimited samgyupsal (grilled meat) to satisfy your Korean cravings. Just by walking around the area, you can surely see one place you would want to eat at.

As With Iloilo being the City of Love, it is also important to give love while in the city. But before anything else, give yourself some of it. Go on dates alone if you can, and even if you are alone, you will never feel lonely while at Iloilo Business Park. If you want some pampering, watching a movie in a state-of-art cinema is a perfect treat. Reclining on leather seats with bottomless popcorn and drinks is more than picture-perfect.

Meanwhile, if you love dogs, there’s also a coffee shop in the area with friendly doggies you can play around with. Aptly named Barking Café, your heart will melt with the cuteness of the dogs. To complete your pamper mode, there’s also a spa and wellness center at the complex where you can get your nails done and be your best self. A good massage is also never a bad idea.
