PLACES TO VISIT AND THING TO DO

Experience Masskara Festival

The name Masskara was coined from the word “mass” which means “a multitude of people”,
and “kara” which means “face”. Tourists flock to the city to witness the extravaganza of colorful
masks, costumes and parades. This annual festivity is held every fourth Sunday of October.

Feast on Chicken Inasal

One of the most highly recommended things to do in Bacolod is to try their authentic Chicken
Inasal - chicken marinated with Sinamak (Negros vinegar), ginger, onions, garlic and spices,
based with anato oil then skewered and roasted over an open flame. Manokan Country, a
complex of open-air restaurants serving Chicken Inasal, is a popular spot for locals and tourists.
