I confess, six days in West Panay is not enough. Thereâ€™s so much to see, places to go to and experience and food to taste. Itâ€™s never enough but despite my time constraint, I was able to visit different places in Aklan, Antique and Iloilo.
Aklan is proud of its piÃ±a (pineapple) fiber. So much so that products derived from processing these fibers into fabrics is one, if not its top industry.
Some notes on the hotels I stayed when I was in Antique and Iloilo
My second visit to the province of Antique was another hurried trip. Blame it on my schedule but for this second time, I was targeting specific sites related to heritage churches, chapels and ruins of which the province, have some interesting examples.
One thing that a visitor can readily notice are the many pedicabs and tricycles that ply the usual routes and the design and construction can vary from place to place. San Jose’s and surrounding municipalities like Hamtic, have their own versions.
