    The view is indeed breath taking, has the view of the city of Cebu. A coffee shop" Le Vie " was a good stop over on this tops road overlooks also of the city! This coffee shop appears like a french shop, with "french like" pastries, etc. The tops road is a long drive to the top, well worth it, it has excellent views.

    Visiting the Taoist Temple in Cebu was such an amazing experience. As soon as I arrived, I was immediately struck by the peaceful atmosphere and the stunning architecture.

    The prayer halls were serene, and I found myself taking a moment to reflect and connect with my spirituality. Lighting incense and making wishes felt incredibly meaningful and personal.

    Though awfully hot when we went to Simala, the presence of the Holy Spirit moves especially if you hear the healing mass.
    It feels nostalgic to see such a beautiful place with so many devotees from different parts of the country or if i may say, even parts of the world (since we had seen foreigners when we visited)
    A holy place to make wishes, this should be preserved for it will bring not only revenue to the church so within the community

    I always like visiting the local history points.
    This fort was interesting but could be made to be something special with some more attention and tidying up.
    There is limited history points but could be more.
    However it definitely is a must see in Cebu.

    Magellan's Cross in Cebu, Philippines is a historic and symbolic landmark that holds great significance. Standing in front of the cross, I couldn't help but feel a sense of awe and reverence. It's a powerful reminder of the arrival of Christianity in the Philippines and the beginnings of a rich cultural heritage.

    The Temple of Leah has a nice history, a true love story. I found the building to be very beautiful as were all the belongings and artifacts. The overlook had some really nice views as well. I'd say this is a great place to visit if you touring other nearby sites, otherwise it is not really worth going out of your way for.

    There is joy st not enough tables with seating ( & even less during wet weather ) at Sugbo Mercado IT Park

    Then the next hassle is choosing what you’ll like to eat & drink .. as there’s so many delicious food kiosks to choose from

    As I notice .. Woman I don’t recommend wearing high heels , as due to the rocky pathway

    Apparently, this is the oldest Chinese house in Cebu and I was told “most is original”.

    I am sceptical, the floorboards like more like 35 years old not 350 and nails were not around in the 1670s. The owners, I mam told, stay at weekends, but hard to see quite where since their bedroom looked very unoccupied.

    One uncomfortable moment was in the garden where there is a harpist, who for a few peso, will play a little, at which three young children- aged between 4-7, dressed in traditional dress wake up (or are woken) from dozing in a nearby room and rush to perform a series of whirls and swirls. They don’t look happy and I felt this bordered on child abuse.

    The harpist told me these were his children, so does this make it ok?

    I enjoyed Colon Street more at night, during the day not much to see or do, unless you are looking at shopping a local shopping malls.

    Lots to see and do around the area with monument and YAPS house. The oldest street in Cebu City and location of night markets.

    Someone recommended seeing this Monument and Yap house a stones throw away. Great place to start sightseeing of area.

    Didn’t do any research previously, but was fascinated by the size and the characters depicted. They look like bad ass Warriors and I was the only one there . Only about 5 minutes to look at and then make your way to Yap house!

    We were surprised this house is located in an old warehouse but don’t let this fool you. Inside you find a nice house with a lot of information about the area, historic Cebu and the history of the family that once lived here.
    We had a well informed and enthusiastic tour guide who explained everything very well.
    Worth a visit!

    Wonderful Cathedral with a rich history to it, superb architecture throughout the cathedral, probably one of best maintained churches that I visited while in Philippines.
