• There are other options for fastcraft going to Bacolod, depending on the time of departure and the price - Supercat (cheapest), OceanJet, Weesam Express. Fastcraft from Iloilo to Bacolod v.v is from 6:00AM to 5:15PM.
• From Lakawon, you may opt to go back to Burgos Public Market and wait for Ceres Bus back to the North Terminal. As for me, since I met four new friends in the island, we rented a car and the driver dropped us off to our own destinations.
• If you missed the last trip of fastcraft, you can wait for the RORO for evening trip - Montrenegro (Php160) and Tristar (Php70). There are trips every hour.
