This is one of the nice spot to visit when you are around Bacolod. Peaceful place and very romantic when they lit up the lights around sunset. Perfect for those who want to do a prenup photoshoot.

The P50 charge was legit. They are an independent operator and are not connected with The RUINS. They are the only accredited shuttle service that goes from GO Hotel - The RUINS - Robinson’s Mall.
