Your first stop is Silliman University, which stands on a sprawling lot near the seaside. It’s the first university established in the Philippines by the Americans in 1901. Take a leisurely stroll along the campus and spot the 20th-century-old Silliman Bell on display within the university grounds.
Next, you’ll be passing by the Provincial Capitol and then head towards Claytown Pottery, which sells local crafts and souvenir items. Afterward, you’ll be visiting the oldest stone church in Negros province, Sta. Catalina de Alejandria Church. Beside the cathedral is an old belfry that dates back to the 1800s.
The busy public market is also part of your itinerary. You’ll see the freshest catch of the day here along with locally produced goods and treats. The next place you’ll be stopping by is at Rizal Boulevard, the city’s beautifully landscaped promenade with peaceful bay views that can make for a nice walk.
By lunchtime, you’ll be on your way to Lab-as Seafoods, where a sumptuous lunch awaits your hungry stomach. If there’s enough time, you can make a quick stop to buy souvenirs at Sidlakan Negros Showroom.
Once you’re done with lunch and shopping, your tour will continue at Pulangbato Falls in the town of Valencia. “Pulang bato” translates to “red rocks,” which is an apt description for the sulfur-covered rocks surrounding the waterfalls. Don’t worry as it’s still safe to wade or bathe in the water at the foot of the falls.
Last but not least, you’ll be going to Red Rocks Hot Spring, a small pool nearby which is famous for its therapeutic waters, believed to provide cure for minor illnesses like arthritis, asthma, or sinusitis. The lush greenery in the area is definitely a bonus, so be sure to take pictures before going back to your hotel.
