Simple Cebu Adventure

Cebu is one the finest tourist spot in the Philippines. The culture, sceneries and foods are the great things the province has.

It is famous for the Sinulog festival (a feast celebration for the senior Sto.NiƱo).

I’ve heard a lot of good things about the province of Cebu that’s why when I was in College I dreamed to go to that place.

January of this 2011 me and my friends plan to go an adventure to the different places. We were from Rizal province, one of the provinces in Luzon Island. We started to brainstorm for the possible places to go. We came up to a plan to go to Liliw Laguna to buy their famous slippers.

After three days one of my friends Chenee joke around that why don’t we try to go to Cebu. During that time there’s a promo ticket for airfare going to Cebu. The ticket that time was so cheap but every day pass it’s getting expensive. That’s the reason we planned so hard and made an intensive research.

We started to browse for the locations of the Cebu’s famous tourist spots and how to use their local transportation.

The airfare is cheap but the inns and hotels room are too expensive and we can’t afford it. Thank goodness my mom has a friend in Cebu and an owner of an inn. The problem for the accommodation is now solve.

We bought our ticket in the Air Philippine Express. We are all excited because this our first time to go to Cebu and first time to aboard an airplane.

The day has come for our Cebu escapade. We are all nervous in our first flight. After an hour we arrived in Mactan International Airport, Cebu.

We were welcomed by mom’s friend, auntie Cherry, owner of the Cherry’s Pension House(email me for questions regarding this pension house).

After a short nap in our room we simply started our adventure by going to the nearest mall and bought the Map that was essential in our adventure.

We visited the Cebu’s famous landmarks such as the Magellan’s cross, Lapu-Lapu statue, the Taoist Temple and etc. Tips to bear in mind, the Cebu's public transport is cheaper than taxi. Besides riding to their local public transport is fun.

The Cebuano people are very kind and cheerful, they are also a very faithful Christians.

After all the great experiences I earned in our adventure, I’m surely will recommend to everyone to visit this place and for sure I’ll be back in this place.
