  IloIlo Province
Home of the famous Dinagyang Festival
Iloilo province and its city ranks as one of the country's foremost centers of culture, industry and trade. A 45-minute flight from Manila, Iloilo has stretches of breathtaking, unpolluted seaside communities and beach resorts. Scuba diving, swimming and snorkeling can be done in perfection in the islands of Guimaras and Sicogon as its underwater seascape are one of the most undisturbed in the country.

Other sports to be tried are windsurfing, yachting or just plain beachcombing. Iloilo is also a place to see spectacular structure as evident in the period churches and century-old houses. The Miag-ao Fortress Church is a grand example of a medieval bastion church with ornate floral designs on the facade.

Iloilo province is primarily the commercial and trade center of Western Visayas, with commercial, industrial development and rural banks, financial and investment houses, insurance companies, and real estate agencies and developers. Nevertheless, agriculture is the province's main source of livelihood. In fact Iloilo's production of rice, sugar and mango has made it one of the country's top agricultural producers.

Iloilo is a trove of historical sites. Tour the province's famous sunset strip, Fort San Pedro or the flower-decked La Villa Rica de Arevalo, site of the Hispanic governance. Or one can visit another historical landmark, Plaza Libertad in the central city district where the flag of the Philippine revolutionaries was first raised upon Spain's final surrender.

Old paintings, tapestries, furniture and memorabilia may be viewed in the Museo Iloilo and also in private galleries deeo in the heart of the city.

It's famous Dinagyang festival, a local mardi gras, held every January in honor of the Infant Jesus is a major tourist attraction. Another event Iloilo is known for is the Paraw Regatta which is participated in by local and foreign sportsmen.
