Last December 2008, me and my family went to visit relatives in Cebu. We spent 4 days and 3 nights in the city. It’s our second visit since 2001. Cebu City is one of the best cities i’ve been in the Philippines. I’d choose to live in Cebu if Manila is not around lol. Cebuanos are very friendly, accommodating and hospitable. I’m sure my friend Mc Billy would agree!
I’ve noticed a lot of improvement in Cebu after a long time visit. If you love malls, i’m sure you’ll love Cebu’s Ayala Center. The mall is not just for shopping, but also a place to hang out with friends. Read Dyosa’s review and photos - LOV’EMALL! AYALA CENTER CEBU’S THE TERRACES.
As part of our visit, we also had the chance to visit the beautiful island of Bohol. Travel from Cebu to Bohol would only take 45 minutes and would only cost you a round trip fare for PhP1500 via Supercat. You need a van or a car while traveling in Bohol. Tip, you can find a rent a van when you arrive in the port area. It would cost you PhP3000 - PhP4000. It’s a whole day package which includes all the best places in Bohol.
Let me show you some photos :

Unfortunately, we missed the famous Sinulog Festival in Cebu. Next year, i’ll make sure to witness the festival. So mark your calendar as early as today! Me and Roel are planning to be there. We want all interested bloggers to come with us and let’s have fun!
By the way, i would like to thank the talented Mc Billy for making my header! Looks great right? Hope you like it too!
