After 13 long years, I was back in Cebu but this time, we will only stayed for two days because my hubby can only take one day leave. Good enough because last year, his VL was denied. I really took my time to research everything so we could maximize our two days stay. I’ve got an early flight to Cebu and last flight to Manila.
Before 6AM, we arrived at Mactan Airport so we went straight to Fuente Oro Business Suites hoping that we could early check in but unfortunately the room was not yet available so we left our baggage and start our Cebu City Tour.
We rode a jeep to Basilica De Sto. Nino, our oldest church that was founded in 1565.
Then walk to Plaza Sugbo where Magellan’s Cross is located.
At the back of Magellan’s Cross is the City Hall
From Magellan’s cross just walk until you reach the Plaza Independencia where Fort San Pedro is also located. Right side of the plaza is the Malacanang sa Sugbo.
Opening time of Fort San Pedro is 8AM so we waited for almost 30 minutes. Entrance Fee is P30 per head.
Then we went to Taoist Temple, you can ride a Jeep 04C, just inform the driver that you are going to Taoist Temple, landmark is Julie’s Bakeshop. There are motorcycles or habal-habal that you could ride to bring you to Beverly Hills Subdivision Gate and from there you need to walk. The best way to reach Taoist temple is through taxi and asked the driver to wait for you.
The colorful temple with 99 steps offers a beautiful view of the city too.
We were all tired after walking and climbing up the stairs of the Taoist temple so we decided to have an early lunch at Casa Verde then go back to Fuente Oro so we could take a nap. Good thing that our room was already available.
We’re supposed to continue our Cebu City Tour but it was raining so we just went to Crown Regency to watch 4D movie. I’m afraid of heights so I will not try the skywalk or sky ride. Anyway, we enjoyed our 4D movie experience even it was only a 15 minutes movie for P250 per pax. (1 movie + souvenir shirt). After the movie we went to Ayala Mall to eat my favorite CnT Lechon. (early dinner).
