Filipinos are known globally for their resiliency. Whatever trials that come their way, they will always find a reason to still smile and let the flame of hope continue burning despite these difficulties. And Bacolod’s Masskara Festival is not a different story.
FROM THE AIRPORT
There are various options to reach the city from the airport.
- Shuttle Service – this for me is the most practical way to get out of the airport. It may not be the cheapest but this also isn’t the most expensive. Fare is at 150 pesos per person.
- Public Transportation – this is the cheapest option and may be the best choice if you on a budget and if you are not in rush. Just outside the airport, take a tricycle to Silay City for approximately 100 pesos. Your expense depends on how many you are in the group. Upon reaching SIlay, busses and jeepneys may take you to Bacolod City but up to the North Terminal only. Jeepney fare to Bacolod is at 13 pesos while the fare for busses (non AC) is at 15 pesos. The trip may take 30 minutes to an hour depending on how fast or slow the ride may be. Then take another jeepney to the city proper.
- Taxi – this is the easiest but most expensive way to reach the city. Price ranges from 250-500 pesos as some drivers usually give fixed price which is much higher than the metered price.
