Bacolod the city, as I have found, is not unlike most provincial cities. I found it strikingly similar with Puerto Princesa where city proper is mainly just the whole length of Rizal Avenue, with the exception that it has two almost parallel roads: Lacson and Hilado Streets and the city divided into Uptown and Downtown areas. To me, everything seemed very near to anywhere because all our taxi rides to any of point of interest did not cost more than P50 inclusive of the flag-down rate of P30.
We arrived from Manila very early on a Sunday morning so my first impression of the city was of any other city on an early Sunday morning, that is, few people and few vehicles on the streets.
