Real Life Projects!
Iloilo city is known as the Queen City of the south. I am traveling to there from Boracay, by bus, whereas the bus will let me off at the iloilo bus terminal. I am a norwegian youtuber and social media ambassador that makes cinematic vlogs.
I am on a long term vacation in Asia and I take you with me along the way. The holiday I have embarked on has been a super fun adventure so far. I have traveled as cheap as I can, so whenever I can take the bus or boat I go for it, budget is king!
In this episode me and my girlfriend is checking in at the Circle Inn Iloilo, late at night.
New Calle Real
Calle Real means Royal Street in Spanish, and is a historic street located in the old downtown district of Iloilo City. It is home to several fine examples of historic luxury American era neoclassical, beaux-arts, and art deco buildings. The street has been famous since the Spanish Era. However, its importance has dwindled and the street has become less maintained; Actually thats an understatement, there is no maintenance what so ever.
There have been efforts to revitalize the street which includes the restoration of the historic buildings along the street and beautification projects. However, in my opinion, these efforts have failed miserably. As of 2017, these buildings are, the way they stand right now, dying.
While I am in no position to say how the population would feel about their past after being colonized, which the filipinos have been, I do think it is shameful that the filipinos do not care to restore these buildings. Which is my genuine impression, they simply don`t care. I saw this around the Philippines, building after building from the Spanish era, simply rotting away. Nobody cares. Make no mistake friends, the images you are looking at in my video needed to be heavily edited in order for the Calle Real to look at least representable.
Guimaras Day Tour
Getting to Guimaras from Iloilo is cheap and affordable, and only takes about 15 minutes. Price for ferry is only 15 Philippines pesos per person. Guimaras is an island province in the Philippines, located in the Western Visayas. Iloilo is northwest of Guimaras, and to the south east is Negros Occidental. We are heading to Alubihod beach, a quite mediocre beach in my opinion that is co-owned by 3 resorts, which means you are charged an entrance fee to access the beach.
