jesse garillosThe Basilica is a must visit if you come to Cebu City. It houses the child Jesus brought by the spaniard explorers hundreds of years before. Various relics are also enshrined in the basilica.The Magellan's cross is also locsted near the entrance of the Basilica.The basilica is readily accessible through various modes of transportation and is walking distance from malls and dining areas.
ErikaThis is a historical place in the Philippines. It is where the Christianity in the Philippines were brought for the first time. The original cross is inside this big cross in the picture. They did it for protection and to preserve it as well. There will be ladies there who. Would offer to pray for you for only $2. They will pray in front of you in their own language. All you have to do os give your name and they will pray in like a singing manner. It is quite entertaining. It is a must visit in Cebu especially if you are into history and religion.
Balamban Running: Not Recommended, Cycling: Suitable
Cebu always amazes me when it comes to tourism. We always have something to offer to every tourist who would love to explore Cebu. That's why, I cannot help but to always be proud being a Cebuano.
In relation to that, let me bring you to the three famous neighboring tourist spots or attractions here in Cebu. These are all located at third district of Cebu Province, a first class municipality, Balamban, Cebu.
The first stop is Buwakan ni Alejandra. You can truly appreciate the beauty of nature by roaming around the area. If you live in the City, you'll understand what I mean. Seeing these beautiful flowers and on top of the mountain is heaven for me. It's truly breathtaking and it's an ideal place for every nature lover and adventurer. You just have to pay Php50.00 as entrance fee and environmental fee.
After a very short orientation on the do's and dont's about the place, the staff offered to take our photos on the best spots. You can inquire from them where to buy plants if you want to take home some. As it is cold, they have a shop where you can buy coffee to warm up while enjoying the beauty of the flowers surrounding the place.
West 35 Eco Mountain Resort is a perfect place if you’re looking for a good relaxation and get away from the hustle and bustling city life.
West 35 Eco Mountain Resort is an ideal place for all families, couples and groups of friends to enjoy the cold breeze and the breath-taking mountain views of Balamban.
To complete your experience, West 35 Eco Mountain Resort also has a zip line, children’s playground, and function room.
The name “Buwakan ni Alejandra” (Alejandra’s Flower Farm) was derived from the Visayan word “buwak” which means “flower” and Alejandra is the name of the mother-in-law of the owner and landscaper, Eleuterio Getapa. The name was given in honor of Alejandra’s love for flowers.
The flower garden covers an area of 700 square meters and expansion is still ongoing. There are over 200 varieties of local plants found in the garden and there will be more in the future. Different kinds of fascinating flowers with vibrant colors embellish the garden and that is what makes it attractive. Among the flowers that can be found in the garden are roses, dahlias, wax begonias, hibiscus, angel trumpets, and cleome or spider flowers.
Probably the BEST FOOD you’ll have in TransCentral Highway, Cebu!

West35 Eco Mountain Park Resort is a nice environmental facility situated in Gaas, Balamban Municipality, Cebu, Philippines.
Nearby this resort, you can also find the facilities like Adventure Café, K33, Island in the Sky places, among other interesting facilities by the mountains of Balamban, Cebu.
The winding road leading to the park resort could be interesting but challenging. There steep climbs and sharp curves along the way up, but at the same time you’ll discover nature and its best - tropical plants, flowers, birds, among others.
West35 Eco Park provides playground facilities for kids, outdoor activities for adults, a restaurant and accommodation facilities.
I've been here so many times 🖤 I always love the ambiance, the view, the food and most of all the coffee ☕ we always come here just for the coffee. They also have this stunning view. This place is perfect for chill and relax. This place is where we just let the stress out and enjoy the view. I love how set up the place is, they have places for kids and pets to enjoy.
Also it is self service and clay go so be sure to be mindful of your waste and throw it in the trash properly. I like how the staff really manage to discipline customers. What I appreciate the most is the rest room., The rest room says it all, its clean big and comfy,.
Camping is a fun activity to do with your friends and family; going to a place surrounded by nature sounds like a fun adventure to have!
However, some do not like the annoyances that camping offers. If you are not prepared or if the area is not that good, you can get mosquito bites, your tent might get hot and sweaty, etc.
Thankfully, EVO Nature Camp can give you an upgraded version of the activity, called “glamping”! Glamping is short for glamourous camping, and it really is glamourous because of the luxuries offered. The tent they offer has air conditioning, a comfy bed, comfy slippers, sofas, and more.
I highly recommend this place!
From the scenic view, big rooms with balcony to feel the foggy morning/evening, refreshing pool and Jacuzzi, swing to feel the breeze, sumptuous food breakfast and dinner, pet friendly and most especially with the friendly and accommodating staff as well.
Staying here with our fur babies was the perfect getaway from the city and it was worth it. The staff were ready to go out of their way to help and very accommodating to our requests. I will recommend this place to everyone! It is definitely a perfect haven for rest and relaxation and a perfect place to escape from hustle-and-bustle of the city.
