Many years ago I visited Iloilo in the Philippines and was surprised just how unspoiled it was from the annoyance of all of us, foreign visitors. True to say that there really was not much to do there, but it was great to walk around and see some of the Spanish old homes that would pop out from around most corners.
A friendly place and at night time appears to be even quieter that you may have at first expected.
This is an article about Iloilo from http://myphilippinelife.com/
Iloilo does not get nearly so many foreign tourists as Cebu and Manila. Places like Boracay, Dumaguete and Bohol see more tourists and have many more resident foreigners than Iloilo. Sometimes, I can spend the day in the city and not see another foreigner. A big part of the explanation must be that these places have much better beaches, but I also think that the Ilonggo character is part of the answer. I find Ilonggos, male and female, to have a reserve and seriousness which differentiates them. From the more outgoing Cebuanos and even Tagalogs. They seem serious, proud, industrious, honest, and pious compared the more fun-loving Cebuanos or Tagalogs. Beyond the reserve, I find Ilonggos to be honest, kind, and courteous. But don’t expect them to fawn over you because you’re a foreigner.
