Perhaps, many were surprised to learn that Iloilo City has earned the honor of being the first city in the Philippines to be included in the list of creative cities for gastronomy cited by the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

It is also interesting to note that no less than the Romanian Ambassador to the Philippines, Romanian Ambassador to the Philippines Răduţa Dana Matache put Iloilo City in the spotlight during Romania’s National Day Celebration last November 29.

We can give a rundown of what would make your stay in Iloilo City unforgettable and comfortable, and you’ll certainly find out why UNESCO accorded Iloilo such a great honor to be one of creative cities for gastronomy in the world and the first in the Philippines.
