EnjoyTripMagellan's Cross is just located outside Basilica Minore de Santo Niño. You need to get inside the structure to see paintings on the ceiling which will tell you about the history on how it was erected. It is said that the original cross has already been covered because many believed that a piece of the original cross can make miracle. You can also read the history of the erection of the Magellan's Cross engraved just below the cross.
yangduoduo17After we participated in the whale shark tour, we decided to visit the tumalog waterfall. You have to take a motorcycle or walk down the mountain to get there. The one-way ride by car costs 75 pesos, and there is another drop-off point at the top. Each person needs an extra bike to take you to the next 1/4 mile. This is the cost that tourists will spend anyway. When you get there, the waterfall is quite spectacular, 100 feet high and 60 feet wide, with no artificial traces of natural beauty. Dip your feet in the lower water and let the fish eat your dead skin. What a wonderful view, a must-visit attraction in oslob.
_We***19best experience in the Philippines! this is something you can not and should not miss. book at a good hotel so that you can be on the first boat in the morning to swim with the whale sharks. we really enjoyed this activity. there were 4 whale sharks that morning and they swam very close to us. an unforgettable experience. take a bus from Cebu city or moalboal and go to oslob and to this activity the next morning!
DanaCasa Gorordo was the 3rd Museum I've been to in Cebu City. I loved my visit to Casa Gorordo because it is such a well-preserved place. The furnitures were still in good quality and pretty, the beds and the clothings featured inside the house were still neat and clean. It really shows the actual life during the 1800s. If one wants to time travel back to the Spanish Colonization era of the Philippines, visiting places like Casa Gorordo is a great way to go. Casa Gorordo is located in Parian, Downtown Cebu, opens daily, and I think they have an entrance fee. I am not quite sure because I went there for free c/o my Young Minds Academy program.
LiezCOLON STREET. This thoroughfare in downtown Cebu City is the oldest street in the Philippines. The undated photo of the old Colon Street above was taken from the book City Of Cebu, which was published by the Cebu City Government in 1970.

Fuerte de San Pedro is a military defense structure in Cebu (Philippines), built by the Spanish under the command of Miguel López de Legazpi, first governor of the Captaincy General of the Philippines. It is located in the area now called Plaza Indepedencia, in the pier area of the city. The original fort was made of wood and built after the arrival of Legazpi and his expedition. In the early 17th century a stone fort was built to repel Muslim raiders. Today's structure dates from 1738 and is the oldest triangular bastion fort in the country. It served as the nucleus of the first Spanish settlement in the Philippines. During the Philippine Revolution at the end of the 19th century, it was attacked and taken by Filipino revolutionaries, who used it as a stronghold.
The Sirao garden is also popularly called a ‘Mini Amsterdam’ by tourists and visitors because of the world-famous ‘Keukenhof’ flower garden. Well, Sirao is no less! The flowers here are varied species and they are so well kept, well-aligned and maintained. In this flower farm, they have made cute arrangements for tourists to click photos turning it into a totally Instagrammable spot.
You will be amazed to know how this amazing garden was started in the first place. A couple started growing flowering plants and sold them. These beautiful flowers soon caught the eye and ever since the garden came into existence. They decided to not cut these flowers and maintained a beautiful garden for them.
Restaurant serves breakfast only. It was a actually a great selection of food. Everything was excellent. The staff were attentive in clearing plates and refilling our coffee and tea. Table was neat most of the time. We asked for a table far from the crowd since we had a baby and 2 toddlers and don't want to disrupt people's breakfast when our baby cries.
Staff was proactive in providing high chairs for them. It has been a great experience during our short stay in Shangri-la Mactan. I made a separate review for the overall experience.

A goo place to eat traditional Chinese Food. Authentic taste, just don't expect fine dining service. Lots of really good dishes though.
Tasty and delicious food. They come in small, medium, and large servings. They take reservations and even accept food order instructions over the phone so that it is ready when you get there. Food is a little pricey but i think it was worth it.t The place is best for family gatherings since one table would fit 12-18 depending on the table size. Service is good. Parking is not so big in the front but they have another parking area behind tthe gasoline station beside ching palace.
The ambiance is very good, overlooking. The food is very good, authentic cebuano taste, most specially the halaan soup, hamonada, adobong kangkong etc. Service is excellent.
The food is super delicious, Crispy kangkong, inutok Crispy pata, mixed seafood soup with filipino rice perfect for our dinner plus the buko juice. We will recommend this restaurant to our other friend.
This restaurant is like an elevated experience from that of other japanese smokeless grills. Pleasant ambiance in the restaurant, lots of sushi choices, sashimi is very fresh. I love the assortment of cheesecakes they have - from coffee cheesecake, banoffee, to thai tea cheesecake.
The Largest Yakiniku Buffet Restaurant in Cebu. Hotel Ambience. All-You Can-Eat. Smokeless Grill. Asian Fusion. Sushi. Over 200+ seating capacity. The first to introduce MOOKATA - a Thai inspired combination of BBQ and Shabu-shabu.
The name of the restaurant itself, that's why we tried the lechon dish here. No doubt, one of the best restaurant in Cebu City. However, the foods are quite pricey so we ended up only ordered a small order of lechon and munggo.
When you're out of time to venture out to towns like Carcar to try Cebu's incredibly tasty lechon, House of Lechon brings the gorgeous roast pig to you right at the comfort of their restaurants in the city. They have an expansive Filipino menu, but make sure to order their lemongrass-infused, umami-bomb lechon and pair it with their amazing dipping, sauce.
We enjoyed the quality of the food and the amazing service. Was a great experience. We had few meals there and will definitely go back. Special mention to one of the staff: Job, when you meet him you'll know you're in good hands.
The foods were excellent, with colorful and superb presentation. Staffs were very accommodating and friendly as a matter of fact they sang a Happy birthday song to our birthday celebrant. With elegant and classy ambiance to dine with. Worth it to recommend the place to my friends and relatives.
