Silay is also home to the well-known El Ideal Bakery, where you can buy crowd favorites like piaya and angel cookies.
If you would rather spend the day in Bacolod's city proper, you can head over to local shops to buy artisanal and native crafts. You can also visit Manokan Country to snack on more local delicacies aside from chicken inasal and sit down for a glass of beer at any of the bars lining Lacson Street.
Day 4 - Day 4: Lakawon Island Resort Tour & Souvenir Shopping with Transfers from Bacolod
