7 Best things to Do and visit in Ilo-Ilo

Iloilo Cityis a highly urbanized city on Panay Island in the Philippines. Its fertile land nourished a people, the Ilonggos, who are distinguished for the warm and romantic song-like melody of their spoken language, Hiligaynon.

Iloilo is often referred toas the “Heart of the Philippines.” Iloilo’s rich heritage is showcased in its delicious cuisine, treasured historical buildings, cultural traditions, captivating natural landscapes, and in many exciting festivals celebrated throughout the province. Intrepid travelers who come to visit often discover that all the best reasons why travelers love to visit the Philippines, can be experienced in Iloilo. Here are the 7 best things to do when you visit Iloilo:
 
1. Enjoy a city tour of Iloilo
 Iloilo City is a tourist hub where the best restaurants, museums, hotels, shopping districts, and nightlife in the province await. It is most known for the annual Dinagyang Festival, exquisite heritage sites, deliciously fresh seafood and signature Ilonggo dishes. The city is also home to many Spanish-colonial churches, grand vintage houses, and old commercial and institutional buildings dating back to its heyday as the “Queen City of the South.”
 
2. Savor a food tour
 Food is undoubtedly Iloilo’s biggest year-round attraction. Most true-blooded locals will, without fail, offer to take you to eat at local restaurants or prepare a home-cooked Ilonggo meal if they find out that you’re a first-time visitor. Don’t miss out on tasting fresh seafood and Iloilo’s native cuisine, especially its signature dishes like La Paz Batchoy and Pancit Molo.
 
3. Visit Iloilo’s heritage sites
 In between food trips, visit treasured historical sights scattered over different districts in the city. Walk the streets of Iloilo City Proper to find recently restored heritage buildings along Calle Real, the city’s old central business district, and other corners of the downtown area like Plaza Libertad, and the Iloilo Provincial Capitol grounds. Head over to the districts of Jaro and Molo to visit centuries-old churches and the city’s grandest ancestral houses that have survived the test of time.
 
4. Explore Iloilo’s beaches and islands
 Picturesque beaches are scattered across the seafood rich waters of Northern Iloilo where the islands of Gigantes, Concepcion, Ajuy, and Sicogon beckon. Head over to the southern coast of Iloilo to find well-preserved marine sanctuaries in San Joaquin and peaceful, gray sand beaches in Miagao, Guimbal, Tigbauan, and Oton.
 
5. Experience Dinagyang Festival
 Not to be missed in January, the Iloilo Dinagyang Festival is one of the Philippines’ biggest religious and cultural festivals that transforms Iloilo City into one big venue for spectacle and merry-making. Watch thousands of DinagyangAti performers fill the city streets as they dance in sync to fast-paced thundering drum beats. In addition to the Dinagyang Festival, the city is also host to many other, exciting events like the Paraw Regatta Festival, Jaro Fiesta, and Chinese New Year.
 
6. Walk along the Iloilo River Esplanade
 Peaceful riverside views can be found along the Iloilo River Esplanade, a testament of the city’s desire to provide breathing spaces on its path to rapid urban development. The best time to start your leisurely walk along this landscaped promenade is during late afternoons to catch the beautiful sunset view.
 
7. Go Church Hopping
 The towns of Iloilo are home to many centuries-old Spanish-colonial Churches of great historical and heritage value. The most famous and best preserved in the province is Miagao Church, which is included in UNESCO’s list of World Heritage Sites. A 20-minute drive down the coast will take you to the militaristic-inspired San Joaquin Church. Also worth visiting are the old churches and church ruins in Guimbal, Tigbauan, Tubungan, Pavia, Santa Barbara, Cabatuan, Leon, Alimodian, Dingle, Dueñas, Passi City, and Barotac Nuevo.
