We spent just three activity pack filled days exploring only a tiny percentage of what we could have seen in Iloilo and if time permitted we would have done more, like take a full day just lying on the beautifully untouched beaches while enjoying a fresh mango from Guimaras all at once.

I’m that kind of traveller who does very little or maybe almost NIL research prior to the trip. Usually, I only start to panic about what there is in store when I’m there. But this time, I was very well covered.
So appreciative of the entire team from Cebu Pacific Air and the Philippine Department of Tourism – Western Visayas as co-hosts of the trip; whom very warm heartedly took all my needs into concern and planned out one of the best itineraries they possibly could. There was no shortage of food as they kept all our tummies filled with their most local delicacies and dishes throughout our stay; a whole myriad of places they brought us to see with really awe-inspiring architecture; and to some of their most pristine beaches that really caught me off-guard. I thought every street and corner was photo-worthy!

They even threw in for all of us a relaxing spa & massage on one of the nights, which was probably one of the bests I’ve experienced to date.

Some of the places we visited include: Casa Mariquit, Molo Church, Alubihod Beach on Guimaras Island, Miaogo Church, which is a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and more.

Even though it was a really short trip, it was a much needed brief respite.
I am also glad that I got a Ladymojo photoshoot done while touring the places with the help of my girlfriends, Shine & Jessica as well as Melvin, who was photographing me.

If you’re looking at planning a trip to the Philippines, I hope this post will be helpful to you.

Concluding with some notes for your reference:

Cebu Pacific Air, the Philippines’ largest airline, flies direct from Singapore to Iloilo twice weekly, with lowest year-round all-in fares starting from SGD180. Cebu Pacific Air also flies direct from Singapore to Manila, Cebu and Clark. For the latest seat sales, visit or call +65-315-80808.
If you’re a social media junkie like me, check them out at @CebuPacificAir on Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
