Don Salvador Benedicto | Little Baguio of Negros Occidental



The town Don Salvador Benedicto was named after the late Vice Governor Salvador Benedicto he is one who established the Revolutionary Government in Negros Occidental, when the country occupied by a Japanese during World War II.


When I am in Mambukal Resort in Municipality of Murcia, I decided to have a quick visit in the town of Don Salvador Benedicto, it just a  20 minutes ride from the crossing of  Mambukal Road and Negros Occidental Eco- Tourism Highway in Brgy. Lopez Jaena and fare is P35. Beforehand, I told the conductor to drop me off in the Viewing Deck or "Lantawan", unfortunately he forgot, "Grrr" so instead i headed to their Municipal Hall.


I went upstairs to visit the office but i forgot it's Sunday, the office is close haha!. Don Salvador Benedicto also known as the little Baguio of Negros Occidental and are just like other town in the Philippines that very quite and relaxing. After a couple of minutes, i went to their market to wait a bus going back to Bacolod City and get off in the viewing deck, as  i always do, I told the conductor again to drop me off in the Viewing Deck, Yes! he did not forgot "Thanks Kuya" actually the viewing deck is located in the main road you can easily find the place,

Overlooking View



The lady girl seated near in the viewing deck told me that its free to go inside and visit the "Statue of the Saints". I imagined the place like the Rice Terraces in Banue. After 30 minutes, I decided to go back to bacolod city and have my lunch there. I waited again a bus going to the City of "SMILE". This time the fare is P70 from Don Salvador Benenicto to Bacolod South Terminal.


.
Maybe in my next visit, I will stay in the town for a couple of days to do the trek in Malatan-og Waterfalls and embrace the cold weather.

  1. Don't you just hate it when conductors forget to drop you off where you told them to? You had one job, sir. One job. Anyway, seems like a very nice place to go to. Thanks for sharing.

  10. My cousins and uncles have been talking about this place. Too bad whenever we go , there seems to be other plans so I haven't gone to Salvador Benedicto. There is a waterfall too? I would definitely demand that we visit the next time.

  11. I've visited Mambukal several times ever since I came home two years ago but I always postpone going to Don Salvador Benedicto. Maybe it's time I have to pay a visit to this town and explore it.

  12. How many steps up to the peak? Is it advisable to bring the kids? I'd love to know so if we visit the Negros Occidental, I will have an idea where to bring the fam for a nature tripping.

    As for your conductor's experience.. that's actually one of my fears when travelling... that's why whenever I go to a plce I am not really aware of, I always ask the conductor to drop me off on that place.,.. kahit makulitan pa sya haha

A Chartered Flight of Philippine Airlines | PR 2242 - Cebu to Kalibo

In the past few years, I’ve been into Philippines Airlines flight across the Philippines, but this is the memorable one, a flight that I’ve never ever expected in my whole travel career.
Back then when I was planning my Zamboanga, Basilan, and Tawi-Tawi travels, I was thinking to escape Manila as my transit airport instead I do use Davao on my onward flight to Zamboanga from Iloilo and Cebu as my return flight to Kalibo. I rush myself going to the airport from Cebu City, I miss the 6:40 pm schedule of Mybus going to Mactan-Cebu International Airport, I ride to the 7 pm schedule instead, I was a little bit nervous since my scheduled flight is 9 pm, I got worried about the traffic that will cause of missing my flight, but I made it I reach the Airport 1 hour before my flight schedule.


The last time I depart/arrive at this airport was in 2011 my 1st ever travel. There's a lot of changes and it more beautiful. I headed straight to the check-in counter to get a boarding pass since I check…
