For those who have not been to Panaad and are interested to go, Panaad is just 30 minutes from the City Center, in the suburbs of Mansilingan. Taking a cab is the easiest way to the area but there are also two routes for commuters. The jeepney route Alijis (RPHS)-Central Market with the terminal beside Gaisano Bacólod Main takes you to the main entrance while the Mansilingan-Libertad route with the terminal at Acebedo Building, Gatuslao Street takes you to the back entrance. If you are planning to go on a trip around Island, start off here so that you can know what to expect with the wonders that is the Sugarlandia, Negros Island.
