well City Mayor Jerry Treñas said Iloilo City is still a safe place to live and to visit. The recent murder incident in one of the city’s hotels is only an “isolated case.” It does not mean the city is not safe for the local and foreign tourists, he said.

Yes. Most of the Visayas is safe for foreigner.

Yes. Most of the problems in the Philippines are in southwest Mindanao where the Muslims live. I would feel safer in Iloilo that almost anywhere else in the world.

yup!... i study in Iloilo but i'm originally from another place and i absolutely love it there!... the people are very nice, soft-spoken and polite... the food is fantastic (you should try batchoy!)... the environment could be considered better compared to the other key cities of the philippines... it's also not as fast-paced compared to other cities... good luck to you!.. .=)
