Cebu Philippines Trip!

One of my online friend is in Cebu right now. She had one month vacation together with her husband. She said it is raining there everyday. Sorry for them! But she is happy in other way because she met her family and friends back home.

They love to stay in Cebu and in Cebu there are lots of spots where tourist can go and visit. I've been in Cebu before only once. She said it is now so nice and lots of entertainment in the city.

If ever you want to travel somewhere in Cebu you can check these following spot where people use to visit!

1.) Magellan’s Cross - This is a historical place because in 1525 to 1740, the Agustinian priests built an open shrine for the cross but the natives began to take chips from the cross believing it had miraculous power so a kiosk-like structure was built to protect the cross from total destruction.

2.)Colon Street - This is super busy street! I remember my uncle lives near to this area before when he was studying in Cebu. This is known as the oldest street in the Philippines was built by the Spaniards in the time of Miguel Lopez de Legazpi.

3.)University of San Carlos - This is where my Uncle took his college (P. del Rosario St., Cebu City). The oldest school in the country established in 1565. This was formerly called Colegio de San lldefonso, established by the Jesuits.

4.)Julian Jumalon's Butterfly Sanctuary and Art Gallery - I want to visit this place one day , I love butterflies! This is located at (20-D Macopa St., Basak, Pardo, Cebu City). The country's oldest butterfly collection and Butterfly Sanctuary with live immature- and adult-stage local butterflies in their natural settings. It also houses the Lepido Mosaic Art collection, so called because it utilizes butterfly wings as its medium.

5.)Kawasan Falls - Located in (Matutinao, Badian). One can feel the surrounding lush greenery of the panoramic waterfalls.

6.)Nonoc Cave - Located in (Borbon Cebu). 83 km. north of Cebu City. Very picturesque view, shelter for picnic goers and bathers.

7.)Taoist Temple - Located in (Beverly Hills, Cebu City). The temple preserves the teachings of Lao-Tse, the 600 B.C. Chinese philosopher. Everyday people climb its 81 steps (representing the 81 chapters of Taoism scriptures) to light joss sticks and have their fortune read.

8.)Man-Made Cebu Botanical Garden - Located in (Camp Marina, Capitol Hills). Where plant hobbyists can see a collection of greenery.

A whole lot more folks. Just keep on tuning here in my travel page. Will keep you all updated as possible as I could!
