A trip to “The Queen City of the South” – the lovely Cebu City,. The oldest city in the Philippines is bursting with rich cultural heritage through its old colonial buildings, archaic churches and interesting museums.
We left Manila Thursday morning, It takes only a two-hour airplane ride to reach Cebu. Upon arriving, our friendly tour guide/driver welcomed and greeted us. Afterwards, we started to hit the road for a city tour.
First stop – Lapu-Lapu shrine. The statue is 20 meters high and is made of bronze. It was built in honor of Rajah Lapu-Lapu, ruler of the Mactan Island who defeated Ferdinand Magellan during the historic Battle of Mactan in 1521.
Second stop – Alegre guitars, a famous guitar factory in Cebu. We tried to play instruments and took some pictures.
Cebu is the home of the best lechon makers and purveyors of the Philippines. In every grand occasion, the star and the center piece of Filipino buffets is lechon. The word “lechon” came from the Spanish term that refers to a roasted suckling pig. Lechon is a skewered whole pig roasted over charcoal; a popular dish in the Philippines.
The Cebu Taoist temple is a great place to learn more about their religion, beliefs and of course reflection of one’s self.
After a tiring tour, we headed to Sampaguita Suites to check-in. We just rest for a bit and had our power nap.
We continued our tour going to Magellan Cross and nearby churches.
We also tried the extreme adventure offered by Regency Towers – the WORLD’S FIRST EXTREME EDGE COASTER RIDE & SKYWALK. 41 STOREY at Crown Regency Hotel & Tower. Cebu. HIGHEST IN THE
PHILIPPINES and on top of the building! You decide how frightened you want to be! Pretty scary experiences, it gets your adrenaline pumping.
On our second day, we explore Osmena Peak and Kawasan Falls. Two days trip to cebu is not enough, – full of adventure and memories of a lifetime. We’ll definitely return to this beautiful island and continue to explore other hidden places. Special thanks to all cebuano who’ve been part of this adventure.
