Get a taste of the best seafood dishes at the Seafood Capital of the Philippines with this private full-day tour of Roxas City that consolidates two of the area's benchmarks — sumptuous seafood and authentic tourist spots. If you have a big appetite and are looking to enjoy an introduction of the city, then this combo tour is the one for you.
The tour starts once your driver fetches you at your hotel in Roxas City. From there, you will get a glimpse of the Spanish era in Roxas, starting with a visit to the Santa Monica Church, where the Panay Bell is located. The bell was cast back in the 1800s from dozens of sacks of coins donated by the villagers.
After hearing the historical stories of Panay Bell and admiring the coral blocks of the church, you can opt to travel next to the Sacred Heart of Jesus for groups of 11 and up. On this site, a 40-meter-high statue of Jesus Christ stands, whose construction was completed back in 2015. You will then head over to Panublion Museum to learn more about the province’s past and notable public figures before stopping by the Roxas Bandstand and Provincial Capitol building for some photo-ops.
Once you are done posing for your Instagram pics, you will make your way to the Palina River to start your lunch cruise. This ride will take you through an untainted field, all while you appreciate the view and dig into your scrumptious seafood feast. The meal features a variety of Roxas City’s best cuisine, including shrimp, catfish, scallops, oyster, BBQ, coconut juice, and seasoned fruits.
After the hearty meal, you will get back on the road and visit another iconic hotspot of the city, the Immaculate Conception Metropolitan Cathedral. The cathedral was built during the early 1700s, making it one of the oldest in the region. Offer a little prayer in the cathedral before you head to Banica Dried Fish Market for some seafood shopping and to Spanggo Café and Pasalubong (Souvenir) Center and Panulce Dessert Shop for some take-home snack shopping.
You will also see tons of other capiz shell gifts and decors at Kapis Atbp. After souvenir shopping, you can opt to go back to your hotel or have a quick visit to Siguin, an aqua farm located about 10 kilometers from Kapis Atbp. Here, you can experience feeding fish, harvesting crabs, and learning about the fish and crab farming industry of the city.
