I was off to the seafood capital of the Philippines too bad it was work related as i had very limited time(roughly 2 hours) to explore...It was more of a splash and dash trip!
Took a 5:30am flight and headed straight to the Roxas Presidents Inn. Its location is right at the heart of Roxas City. Its situated along Rizal Street corner Lopez Jaena St. The Main Plaza, Roxas Avenue Bridge, Panay River, City Hall, Museum, Cathedral, and provincial Capitol is just a few meters away perfect for walking around!
TRAVEL TIP: The main mode of public transport would be the tricycle. Fare from airport to the city center is P100.00 est. 1 km distance (definitely a tourist trap) as we travelled from the city center to Baybay beach which was farther down the road maybe 1.5-2 km cost around P35.00. City Center to market .5 km is P8.00. If your on a business trip and your traveling out of Roxas City better plan ahead as there only 5 taxicabs in the whole of Roxas City.
The hotel had a nice Antique and rustic feel to it...the rooms were newly renovated and were named after Philippine presidents. P1,300.00 for a 2 bed mini suite with breakfast and wifi access.
Had lunch at RML manokan Haus right in front of the Roxas Presidents inn. They seemed popular in Roxas City as they a couple of branches. Main menu would be similar to chicken Inasal. Very tasty flavor but i was disappointed with the size of the serving. I was expecting cheap and huge pieces of chicken but to my dismay the size also came down with the cheap price. I wasnt able to try the local eateries or ihaw-ihaw so i had no comparison .
Had a few minutes to take snapshots of the Panay River, Roxas Avenue bridge, and Park.
