Resort
“A fun place to visit for both kids and adults. It offers a relaxing, instagram worthy view, places to swim and fun rides. If you want to spike up your adrenaline you can try the hamster wheel, sky bicycle, the zip line, and bungee trampoline. If you just want to chill and relax, there’s also a spa and a restaurant pavilion. All in all, a great place to keep cool in the summer. ”

Restaurant
“Craving for that authentic Chicken Inasal? Where else is the best place to taste it but its place of origin. Near SM City Bacolod is an array of stalls offering this Bacolod City favorite. Unlike the usual taste we get from those offered by fast food chains, the authentic inasal is on the tangy side best eaten with sinamak.”
