    Places To Visit In Cebu

    Cebu is easily one of Ranz and I's favorite places to visit in the Philippines. We love the Queen City of the South so much that we went there three times last year. Cebu is the perfect blend of the past and present. It's amazing how a city that is highly urbanized still preserves their rich history.

    I've been asked a couple of times about places that are worth visiting in Cebu, so hopefully this answers all o ...

    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.

    After the Davao trip, my sister and I were still in a travel mode and were dreaming once again on embarking on a new trip. Unfortunately a lot of things were not in our favor.

And so, we decided to just go on some local tourist destinations.

    The monument has been a familiar site to me since I lived close to it when I was still reviewing for my licensure examinations. I only gave it a second look a few years ago, when a friend and I tried in vain to identi ...
