Just a week ago me, Melo and our UST friends – Josh, Ren and Aki had our most adventure packed trip by far. From simply admiring the beauty of what the city has to offer to climbing a peak, to swimming with giants and jumping thru canyons – all these and more in just 3 Days!
To know more on how we toured Cebu City and the Southern Cebu in 3 Days, feel free to read on. This is will be a photo essay, so brace yourself. We took hella loads of photos ’cause – why not?! I’m gonna drop the chitchat and get down to business.
Our flight itinerary: MNL – CEB OCTOBER 28 at 7:30pm & CEB-MNL November 1 at 1:00 am. That gave us 3 days and 3 nights to explore Cebu. We chose those flights ’cause you know, we’re kuripot like that. haha! Usually these flights are the cheapest. We got this for Php 3,000/pax – round trip.
Since our arrival at Cebu is at night time, we had to book for a transient inn to sleep for the night, we arranged a 1 night stay at Cebu Transient House , it’s an entire house complete with kitchen ware , fridge, water dispenser, 3 bedrooms which can fit 4pax each, 2 toilet and baths, we booked it for Php 2,300.00
DAY 1 – Cebu City Tour
Sirao Garden Farm
We headed for a 45 minute ride up hill for the flower farm, and boy it was beautiful.
Temple of Leah
House of Lechon – the Famous Carcar Lechon
Yap- Sandiego Ancestral House
Fort San Pedro
After spending the whole day doing the city tour, it’s time to head on south for the more exciting part of this trip. 3 hours of travel by land, we reached out transient home at Oslob – Sangi Tourist Inn at 9:00 in the evening. We rested early to prepare for the next day’s activities.
DAY 2- Oslob
Oslob Whaleshark Watching
Oslob Heritage Park- Spanish Cuartel
It is made to serve as a “barracks” to the Spanish army and it’s first line of Naval Defense in 1898.
Day 3 – Moalboal
Pescador Island – Sardine Run – Turtle Watching
To see more of our jumps, click on the video! 🙂
*TIP: if you have 2 or more GoPro(s) / Action Cams don’t use it at once, make sure you have something to use upon nearing the end of the course so you won’t miss out taking videos of the highest jump and the exit trail – just like we did 😦 *
We finished our activities at around 4 in the afternoon, went home to our inn, changed up and head on back to the city by 5:00pm. We arrived at 9:00 at the “pasalubong shop” and went straight to our final stop.
Our flight is at 1:00am so we have enough time to eat our late dinner and transfer countless photos from each-other’s gadgets.
Note that breakfast is not included in the package, we brought our food at the 7-11 near by. Being not-so-picky-eaters we are happy to eat at local food stops offering different home cooked dishes at an average meal of Php 100-150, drinks included. 🙂
Tips from the guides are also excluded, our group had been a bit generous in giving tips to the different guides and boatmans, simply because they deserve it. They are ever so accommodating, friendly and don’t get me started with the photography skills. HAHA!! (Osmena Peak, Pescador Island Hopping, canyoneering guides, our main tour guide Kuya Lynard and our very patient driver Mang Diomedes) . *For Cebu Tours – you may contact Kuya Lynard at 0975-910-9281, he offers the least expensive tour package*
I had been to Cebu before but it has always been for business and I have not imagined that there is alot more to Cebu than their booming city business. These 3 days has been tremendously tiring but for all it’s worth I will tirelessly promote what this part of Cebu has to offer.
That concludes our Cebu trip! I hope you get to experience Cebu as much as we did!
