I have visited Ruins many times since it was first opened to public until now that it has gained attention. I would say that it has improved its beauty and the management had done a great job in maintaining The Ruins. The 100 pesos entrance...More

First, in order to get there you need to have a car, & if none, better rent a car because the location is quite isolated. For the backpackers like us, better book a car (we book GRAB) instead of hiring a tricycle. It’s for your...More

There's an entrance fee of PHP100 (or was it PHP110? Haha) to get inside. I went to the garden first (where the grass was a little muddy cause it's been raining) and then the house itself. The Ruins is definitely one of the most beautiful...More

You’ll love the place especially at night time. Great job for the best tour guide, Roger! Food is pricey so I suggest you pack your own.

Since people thought you can't visit Bacolod without visiting this place, so my partner and I decided to check this place out. Most of the blogs I read advised to visit The Ruins during nighttime and so we did. We arrived right before sunset and...More
