The surrounding rainforest, the views of the mountains and greenery are incredible. So if you feel like unwinding after a long day, pop into Duyan Cafe.

How to get there:

  • If you are from Bacolod, ride a Ceres bus from North Terminal or a jeepney going to Silay City. Ask the driver to drop you off at Silay public market.
  • At the back of Silay Public Market ride a jeepney going to Barangay Guimbalaon (Sitio Mansiginon).
  • From Sitio Mansiginon you can hire a Habal – Habal (Habal-Habal is a highly improvised two-wheeled single motorcycle usually ridden beyond its passenger capacity. Since it is used as public transportation especially in areas with narrow roads, and steeper, rougher terrain, it could possibly carry up to 6 passengers, at the least) going to Duyan Cafe.

Or if  you have a car, take the road going to the Bacolod-Silay Airport, turn right before the entrance of the airport take that road until you reach the place (approximately 21 km away from the airport or 25-30 minutes ride.

Duyan Cafe is open Wednesday 7:00 am to 7:00 pm and Saturday and Sunday from 7:00 am to 7:00 pm.

I want to travel the world and I want to feel the anonymity of being in a foreign city and being surrounded by hundreds of people who are going in a hundred different directions.
