Silay City Walking Tour Map

Going to Bacolod? Make sure to drop by Silay City!

The city of Silay is often referred to as the "Paris of Negros" because of its richly history and well-preserved heritage sites. Like Vigan City in Ilocos, it is now considered as Museum City.

Here is the walking map I made for our Bacolod-Iloilo-Guimaras trip last year. You might find it useful. :)

From Bacolod City we rode a Ceres bus to Silay City and hopped of in front of Silay Public Plaza. This is where we started our walking tour.

I missed it when we first went there (year before the second trip) so I made it a point to visit when we went back. If you're doing a walking tour, it's best if you can allot a whole day for Silay City. It's a big city and there are a lot of picturesque spots. Plus, the museums are entertaining. Unfortunately for me, we only had half day so we're not able to visit all sites.
