Smallville: Iloilo City
Since we're in Iloilo already, I just want to take you guys to the best nightspot in this part of the country. Welcome to Smallville.
Smallville has grown tremendously over the past years. I remember 3 years back, it just had one short row of restaurants. Now, several new buildings have sprung up, housing new restaurants, spas and other specialty stores.
As a nightspot, Smallville is where the Ilonggos go to party. There are several bars here, from the basic inuman place to clubs with pounding R&B music.
Inside Smallville, you will find MO2 Waterpark, which is beside the MO2 Hotel. It is supposed to be the "swimming pool" of MO2 Hotel, but it is also open to the public for a fee.
I found the water park very small though. Think of it more as a themed swimming pool area for a hotel. Smallville also houses Smallville 21 Hotel, a brand new one, and the first hotel in the complex, the Iloilo Business Inn.
I enjoyed bar hopping in Smallville, and the place gets packed as the night progresses. It seems that everyone in Iloilo is here for dinner, coffee, drinks and company.
We settled down to enjoy the rest of the night, with pitchers of margarita for the girls and beer for the guys. I really had a great time in Smallville, where a laid back, cosmopolitan night life can be experienced.
