How to Go to Sipalay City, Negros Occidental

Click to enlarge

From Cebu City, Cebu
Go to the South Bus Terminal and take the one and only direct bus to Sipalay at 5AM. (The return trip from Sipalay to Cebu is at 5PM.) The trip takes about 8 hours.

If you miss this bus, you can opt to go to Dumaguete City in Negros Oriental or Bacolod City in Negros Occidental. You can do this by air (Cebu Pacific flies direct from Cebu to both cities, and Philippine Airlines flies direct from Cebu to Bacolod) or by land and sea.

To go to Bacolod City by land and sea, at the North Bus Terminal take a Ceres bus bound for Bacolod. There are four routes:
  • Cebu - Toledo - San Carlos - Don Salvador - Bacolod
  • Cebu - Toledo - San Carlos - Canlaon - Bacolod
  • Cebu - Toledo - San Carlos - Escalante - Bacolod
  • Cebu - Tabuelan - Escalante - Bacolod

To go to Dumaguete City by land and sea, at the South Bus Terminal take a Ceres bus bound for any of these three:
  • Dumaguete.
  • Bato, Samboan. Then take the ferry from Bato to Tampi, Amlan, Negros Oriental. From Tampi, take a bus going to Dumaguete.
  • Lilo-an, Santander. Then take the fastcraft to Sibulan, Negros Oriental. From Sibulan, take a jeepney to Dumaguete. If you miss the direct bus from Cebu to Dumaguete, this is the next best option.

To go to Dumaguete City by sea, take a ship (Cokaliong Shipping Lines) direct from Cebu to Dumaguete.

    1. Hi Sarah. Thanks for dropping by. I personally don't make itineraries for my short local trips. For our Sipalay trip, since we are based in Cebu, we went via Dumaguete, and stayed overnight in Dumaguete bothways. In Sipalay, we stayed in Sugar Beach two nights. We didn't go on a tour in Sipalay.
