_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!
_FB***45A visit in Cebu won't be complete without visiting the country's oldest Roman Catholic Church – Basilica Minore del Sto. Niño. It is a homegrown site of devotion for many Cebuanos and Filipinos.
D34***42I’ve been here more than 10 times already. I really love going here whenever I am stress. The place is so calm and it makes me relax. People are so friendly and accommodating. The ambiance is so great. I never been to Boracay but it seems I already did because of its white sand. Great and cheap food. Will go here again on my next vacation

Magellan planted a cross to signify this important event about the propagation of the Roman Catholic faith in what is now Cebu, in central Philippines. The original cross is reputedly encased in another wooden cross for protection, as people started chipping it away in the belief that it had miraculous healing powers.
On my recent trip to the Philippines, I had read a bit online that there was a community of master guitar makers living on Mactan Island and that I could buy a completely hand-made guitar crafted of exotic woods for a fraction of the cost as in America or Europe. I was intrigued, so I did a bit more research. The history of why this little enclave of guitar makers exists traces back hundreds of years to when the first Spanish colonists landed on Cebu and Mactan island.

#holidayvacation Filipino food may not be as famous as that of its Thai and Vietnamese neighbors. But with more than 7,000 islands and a colorful history, this archipelago has some delicious dishes of its own. You should try it when you get a chance to visit this country. #merryxmas
The “strict” ordinance of the government and the “working from home” trend of this new normal have been affecting my feelings which would sometimes lead to frustrations/minimal sign of depression. In instances wherein you’re alone, stranded in another city and being away from your siblings, the only person that you could lean on is YOURSELF. Therefore, never be discourage, stand up and pack your things with a complete armor or face mask and face shield then start your journey to mactan island wherein you can do beach resort hopping and visit their beautiful and elegant places wherein you can temporarily forget about negative thoughts and worries about what’s gonna happen or when can we go back to our normal lives? Bask yourself in the beautiful, fine and clean sand of Shangri-La, plantation bay and ibiza beach club and enjoy your life being alone and count all your blessings despite being stranded in another city. never lose hope and have faith that we’ll get through all these. It’s ok to enjoy and treat yourself to amazing places as long as you follow the health protocols and always have alcohol with you. God bless to all of us and let’s continue praying....
Spent my 35th Birthday with my family in this beautiful beach at Solea Mactan.
