Kawasan Falls Travel Recommendations for 2023 (Updated in Dec)
Kawasan Falls In Cebu
Cebu boasts a rich history that dates back to the Spanish colonial era, evident in its well-preserved heritage sites such as the Magellan's Cross and the Basilica Minore del Santo Niño.
But beyond the city's urban charm lies a natural paradise waiting to be discovered. One of the most sought-after destinations in Cebu is the awe-inspiring Kawasan Falls, located in the town of Badian. This multi-tiered waterfall is a true gem, boasting crystal-clear turquoise waters cascading down lush green cliffs, creating a postcard-perfect scene that will leave you in awe.
Kawasan Falls is not just a sight to behold; it's also a playground for adventure enthusiasts. Canyoneering, a thrilling activity that combines hiking, swimming, and cliff jumping, is a popular way to experience the beauty of Kawasan Falls up close. Strap on your gear, follow experienced guides, and embark on an exhilarating journey through the canyons, navigating through natural rock formations, and plunging into refreshing pools of water.

The Kawasan Falls Asrenaline Rush Adventure
Kawasan Falls is about 2 hours away from the bustling City of Cebu. Canyoneeeing is the main activity in the area. They have 7 different attractions around, which includes a kilometer of Superman zipline, a hike through the forest, and 7 different jumps along the Kawasan River with several waterfalls to enjoy a thrilling jump or dive. It's an awesome experience with all of your friends to be part of the nature while thrillseeking through the jungle. It's better to get a private tour guide, or you can jump in with the group. Price range is between $30 ~ $60 per person, depending on the level of activity and number of people in the group. This activity is not for the faint of heart. After your fun day, you may want to spend the afternoon in Moalboal for some tranquil time watching the sunset before heading back to Cebu City.

This has got to be the highlight of my trip in the Philippines. I have never done anything like this before my trip but this experience is just soo cool. It is an adventure near the town of Moalboal, Cebu. You get to do so much in 4 hours. Hiking, relaxing in the river and flowing along the stream, Waterfall and Cliff Jumping! The Cliff jumping can be skipped but there are so many cliffs to jump. The highest one is like 20m high. #cebu

Mactan Travel Recommendations for 2023 (Updated in Dec)
Lovely restaurant with very vibrant staff. Portions are good. Ordered the Bam-i (delicious! Portion enough for 2-3 people), the honey garlic chicken for a couple (came with 4/5 pieces of chicken), the Shanghai lumpia (3 halved pieces with sauce) and pork bbq (delicious but beware very spicy sauce!). The Mango Float is a definite must! Would definitely recommend!
Love the food and service. Staff are very friendly and accommodating. Our family went here on a rainy evening but we were greeted by their friendly staff who guided us from parking until we reach the restaurant with an umbrella.I highly recommend this to people who likes to experience exquisite food and true Filipino hospitality.
The atmosphere was inviting and the decor was gorgeous. The menu was full of unique and delicious options that exceeded my expectations. The service was top-notch, with the staff going above and beyond to make sure I had a great time. I highly recommend this restaurant to anyone looking for an unforgettable dining experience.

Temple of Leah Travel Recommendations for 2023 (Updated in Dec)
The Taj Mahal of Cebu
This is the Temple of Leah, a Roman-inspired architectural temple located in Barangay Busan in Cebu City, Philippines.
The story behind this temple is fascinating. Teodorico Soriano Adarna had the temple built for his late wife Leah Albino Adarna, the grandmother of Filipina actress Ellen Adarna.
According to the actress, the temple was not built to be a tourist spot but a storage for her grandmother's things. But since the view from up there is nice, they made it open for public.
There's nothing much to do here, this can be a quick stop when visiting Cebu.
Children/ Senior Citizen- P50
Prenup Pictorial- P4500 ( No Time Limit )
From Mactan Island, ride a bus going to SM Cebu City.
Fare is around P40. Then take a 04D, 041 or 04H (Lahug-Busay) jeepney from downtown Cebu City, the fare is less than P20 per person; get off at the street to Temple Leah, and walk for 5 minutes to the site.
Ride a habal-habal at Lahug / JY Mall straight to Temple of Leah for P150 per motorcycle, good for 2 persons, or a taxi or grab from the downtown.

Symbol of Undying Love - Temple of Leah
This temple located in the highland barangay of Cebu City was build as a symbol of undying love. The structure was owned by Teodorico Adarna, the grandfather of a Filipina actress Ellen Adarna. The structure is over-looking the city - a great view!
Temple of Leah is a 1 hour drive away from Cebu City.
The very detailed structure is worth a visit, if you're a fan of greek style architecture or mythology. It has a feel of Barcelona and greece at the same time. The fountain at the center is perfect for an instagram photo. The collections of vases, ceramics and antiques are vast. The statue of Leah at the temple is amazing. and not to missed the fact that you'll have a 180 degree view of the city.
Best time to go here is early morning.
Cebu's Taj Mahal 🇵🇭
This place is so much like the story of Taj Mahal in which the king/husband dedicated this structure to his late wife. The love that this represents is so admirable, very touching and inspiring. Definitely, it is worth a visit when you are in Cebu. It is located on top of a hill in Busay Cebu so you have a breathtaking view of the city. They sell food there although we opted not to eat there. It is a 45 minute drive from the city center.
Entrance Fee: 100 pesos per person

Simala Shrine Pilgrimage
When you mention the town of Sibonga in the southern part of Cebu, what comes to mind is the Simala Church, which is flocked by thousands of devotees per day. Whether it is for a petition, thanksgiving, or some other reasons, devotees as far as you can imagine, gather in this place to pray. This has been an icon in itself hosting the miraculous image of the Our Lady of Lindogon. This is probably the most beautiful of all the churches in Cebu. From a distance, it looks like you are out of the country because of its notable structures.
A Pilgrimage Site
My recent 2022 trip was memorable because of Simala Shrine. It is part of our Oslob tour in Cebu. The Simala Shrine is a Roman Catholic pilgrimage site. The site hosts the image of the Our Lady Of Lindogon . To enter the church, there is a friendly ramped page path, through the turrets along with an arcaded corridor. To the right side is a lovely view of the Marion Hills. Looking down, the landscaped garden displays the words "We Love Mama Mary". This place is peaceful to utter our prayers.
A place to have of wishes surrender to God and hope it make it all come true.
