January marks the beginning of colorful festivities in the Philippines. These festivals, often religious in nature, provide cultural insights on the locale where they are celebrated. Among the famous Festivals in January include the Feast of the Black Nazarene in Quiapo, Manila held every January 9, and Sinulog Festival in Cebu?held every third Sunday of January in honor of the Infant Jesus, or Santo Niño.

Two more festivals in honor of Santo Niño are held celebrated just a week apart in January: Ati-atihan Festival in Kalibo, Aklan on the 3rd week; Dinagyang Festival in Iloilo on the 4th week. What is interesting is that these two locations are merely 3 hours away by land travel. What better way to spend your vacation but by staying for a week in the Visayas and attending both Festivals from Kalibo to Iloilo!

Getting there

From Manila, there are direct flights by a lot of local carriers to Kalibo, Aklan. Travel time usually lasts for about an hour. Ati-atihan celebrations last for about a week. Just make sure that you are in town before Saturday and Sunday, the last 2 days of the festival where the Grand Street Dance Performances take place. The finale of the Festival, called Pagpadungog, is where Winners of the Ati-atihan Contest receive their awards marking the end of the event.
