The home of white sand beaches, the Western Visayas (region 6), is also the home to the ever popular Western Visayas State University (WVSU online), College of Science and Technology, and the Western Visayas Medical Center. Although a relatively small and rural region, the area is perhaps the most popular in the Philippines do to its popular island paradise Boracay! As one can imagine, tourism here is the main source of jobs for locals.
Although there are many great cities and villages in this region, not all are appealing to tourists. The recommended tourist destinations include: Boracay, Aklan, Antique, Iloilo, Guimaras, and Capiz. The top 3 destinations by popularity are pictured below.
Note: We still have a separate page for the former Negros Island Region.
