Sugarcane-growing Negros Island, 300 mi/485 km southeast of Manila, is named for the resident Negrito people. Scenic Canlaon Volcano in the center of the island and good diving off Daniugan Island (off the western coast) are the chief attractions.
You can also visit sugar-processing factories and plantations, where antique steam engines haul sugarcane from the fields to the factories. These "iron dinosaurs" are best seen (and ridden) at Victoria Mills, 15 minutes north of Bacolod—the surprisingly clean capital of Negros.
