Don't miss out visiting this place! If you want to take a look at how the elite used to live. It's very accessible from Bacolod. The last time I went there, the entrance fee is at ₱ 100.00.

I can surely say that Balay ni Tana Dicang has some deep history. Once you enter the house, you can really feel an eerie feeling. But the house itself really has long history. They have an entrance fee for 100php for regular individual. They have...More

There are plenty of stories that our tour guide shared with us, from the peepholes to what was served to wanted and unwanted guests. Not a whole lot of people go through this meseum, which is a pity since it has quite a history. Great...More
