Bacolod City Tour

The notable Masskara Festival which is held during the third week of October draws an influx of tourists to witness its colorful and lively festival.

My first was in Hong Kong through Cathay Pacific and now I will travel locally via Philippine Airlines. I enjoined my hubby, my favorite travel buddy to share this wonderful moment with me, which is a prelude to our upcoming wedding anniversary this coming March.
