Fort San Pedro News
It's never too late! This was the best words I could describe to our visit at Plaza Independecia and Fort San Pedro in Cebu last March. Quarter to four in the afternoon when I and my family decided to have a quick visit at Fort San Pedro. Actually we were tired already when we were dropped by our relatives at Basilica of Santo NiÃ±o after they had toured us to some part of Busay Cebu. Kenneth, a good family friend of us who worked in Cebu City told us to visit Fort San Pedro. And since my father was still up to going somewhere in the city we visited the said fort.

Saturday. We got nothing to do at home and so the thought of visiting old places hit me. I decided to convince my mom and my nephew to have a little adventure by visiting some of Cebu's most historic places. We were still arguing about where to go while we were getting ready and decided to visit Fort San Pedro as our first stop.
I remember when I was little, we used to visit here wit the family. I remember running around, horse playing with my cousins inside this very fortress.

One of the most visited places in the Philippines is Cebu, and if you are like me who heard that the hustle and bustle in this country is a lot like the crowded capital Manila, you would wonder why tourists flock to this highly urbanized province, until you yourself would have a chance to investigate it with your own pair of eyes.

Around 6:00 p.m. when we arrived at Pier 1 from Tagbilaran Pier and rode a taxi going to our accommodation at Cebu.
We stayed at ALT Commercial Complex which was minutes to an hour away from the city. Our tour guide told us that that was not the most convenient location to stay if you're a tourist, because the city is the most accessible.
ALT is a dormitory-type of guesthouse. It's a small airconditioned room good for 4 pax which has two double-deck and 1 cabinet with 4 compartments. It doesn't have a private restroom but there are 8 CR's per floor.
