Philippines | DIY Day Tour Solo Trip in Lakawon + Tawhai Floating Bar for less than P1,000

Thursday, March 09, 2017



I did a solo trip to Bacolod , Negros Occidental last February since i was visiting Iloilo that time and i sailed straight to Bacolod the next day to spoil myself with this lovely view of Lakawon Island. Solo trippin' Bacolod for me is easier if you would navigate the island with an internet connection. ( Thank you internet gods , offline maps and other stuff ) 




Important things to consider :
  • internet connection - will guide you on how to go from certain destination to the next
  • Power bank - to keep your smartphone charged 
  • Extra cash - just in case 
  • Water - to keep you hydrated 
These items will help you survive the day all by yourself in the beautiful Island of Lakawon and never forget to keep yourself hydrated since summer heat in Bacolod can be a little uncomfortable. 
How to go to Lakawon : 
  • Ride  a jeep going to North Bus Terminal ( Ceres Terminal ) 
  • Take a bus going to Cadiz
  • Alight to Martesan Bus Terminal
  • Ride a tricycle
  • Boat ride for 15 minutes
Budget Guide : 



Note: The P250 entrance fee to Tawhai gives you a complimetary drink of Juice or Beer + Unlimited visit to the bar for that day. Keep in mind that the bar closes at 8pm.

Extra expenses are food and alcoholic drinks to give you a chill vibes while you're on the island!

Solo Travel tips : 

Always make friends with the people at the bar , including the staffs since Ilonggos are known to be hospitable and sweet. Try talking to Kuya Ariel! He offered to take photos of me for remembrance he said but I said i'm good with just seeing the bar and the island and told him that i will come back "for sure".

Don't drink too much since Lakawon is an hour away from Bacolod City.
  • Pack light
  • Get to know other people but always be careful 
  • Stick on the budget ( If you're a budget traveler ) 

Feel free to ask any questions! Lugar lang!!!!!
