Bacolod

 
 

Bacolod is the capital of the province of Negros Occidental, located in the Western Visayas Region. The city is named as the "Land of the Sweet People" because of the extensive sugarcane plantations that can be seen along the highway. Bacolod is also known as the "City of Smiles" from its Mardi Gras-like festival held each year on the 3rd week of October.
