    Visited as part of a private city tour. Very interesting tour with a guide who knew her stuff (and spoke impeccable English). Fascinating glimpse into Spanish/Filipino life from the last couple of centuries. It was also good to bring to life several stories I have heard about such life from my visits to the Philippines over the last 35 x years.

    Visiting the Taoist Temple in Cebu was such an amazing experience. As soon as I arrived, I was immediately struck by the peaceful atmosphere and the stunning architecture.

    The prayer halls were serene, and I found myself taking a moment to reflect and connect with my spirituality. Lighting incense and making wishes felt incredibly meaningful and personal.

    I always like visiting the local history points.
    This fort was interesting but could be made to be something special with some more attention and tidying up.
    There is limited history points but could be more.
    However it definitely is a must see in Cebu.

    The view is indeed breath taking, has the view of the city of Cebu. A coffee shop" Le Vie " was a good stop over on this tops road overlooks also of the city! This coffee shop appears like a french shop, with "french like" pastries, etc. The tops road is a long drive to the top, well worth it, it has excellent views.

    Magellan's Cross in Cebu, Philippines is a historic and symbolic landmark that holds great significance. Standing in front of the cross, I couldn't help but feel a sense of awe and reverence. It's a powerful reminder of the arrival of Christianity in the Philippines and the beginnings of a rich cultural heritage.

    Apparently, this is the oldest Chinese house in Cebu and I was told “most is original”.

    I am sceptical, the floorboards like more like 35 years old not 350 and nails were not around in the 1670s. The owners, I mam told, stay at weekends, but hard to see quite where since their bedroom looked very unoccupied.

    One uncomfortable moment was in the garden where there is a harpist, who for a few peso, will play a little, at which three young children- aged between 4-7, dressed in traditional dress wake up (or are woken) from dozing in a nearby room and rush to perform a series of whirls and swirls. They don’t look happy and I felt this bordered on child abuse.

    The harpist told me these were his children, so does this make it ok?

    Beautiful flower garden but not much accesible that we rented out a taxi just to go there as they refused to drop you. Entrance of 60 and instagrammable sceneries will not fail you.
