    I went here in the 3rd weekend of January where sinulog2023 coming back on street performance and street dance at the new venue of SRP cebu city. Firstly I visited this important church where Santo Nino ( baby Jesus) places in the shrine . The dat before Grand procession , it’s mass celebration to commemorate Santo nino first came to colonial city , Cebu by Magellane. The interior of the church itself is extravaganza arts of Gothic era. It’s crowded but the ambience was very tranquil.

    "I recently visited the Ayala Center in Cebu and was thoroughly impressed with my experience. The shopping center was modern, and spacious, and offered a wide range of shopping and dining options. I was able to find a variety of local and international brands, as well as unique boutiques and specialty stores.

    The food court was particularly impressive, with a diverse range of cuisine options and seating arrangements that made it a great place to relax and enjoy a meal. Additionally, the Ayala Center was well-maintained, with clean facilities and friendly staff who were always willing to assist with any needs.

    Aside from shopping and dining, the Ayala Center also offered a variety of entertainment options. I was able to catch a movie at the state-of-the-art cinema, and there were also several performance stages that offered live entertainment throughout the day.

    Overall, I highly recommend a visit to the Ayala Center in Cebu. Whether you're looking to do some shopping, enjoy a meal, or simply relax and take in the sights and sounds of this vibrant city, this shopping center is a must-visit destination."

    A historical site where the final outcome had a major impact on the Philippine life. We hit it during “rush hour”, super busy, couldn’t really take it in.

    Beautiful to visit during at night. Though visiting this place during the day is great too if you want to see the Cordova bridge.

    It can be crowded in the main viewing area but there are plenty of space for everyone.

    Fort San Pedro is military defence structure in Cebu and is in the area called Plaza Independencia, in the pier area of the city. The original fort was made of wood but early 1600s a stone fort was built to repel Muslim raiders. The Fort today dates from 1738 and is the oldest triangular in the Philippines. It has been restored and is open to the public and admission is charged ,It looks like it could use a clean!

    The museum covers a number of aspects of life in Cebu and in doing so the interactive video (if I can call it that) on the tablet the museum provides does an admirable job. Lots of fascinating artifacts from Cebu's past. The museum is well adorned and interesting to visit.

    A beautiful Oasis on top of the hill. Bring your walking shoes but there are plenty of places to rest. Once you get up top some of the best views that's views of the city.

    The house structure is amazing enough but to add to that the house is jam packed with various collectables no doubt gathered by the family over a considerable period of time. The house is still used by the family, apparently. I think it is worth the admission price.

    Although one of the biggest within the top 10, I like it alot as it's manageable. Chess, archery, great eats, scooters, massage chairs, but most of all it was all walkable within reason! Best of all free a/c bus to Fuente Circle and SM Cebu.
    Like all other malls it has tons of shopping, cinemas and grocery store. But the free bus was waht I liked as it got me to the circle where my hotel was and totally left on time and was clean. Thumbs up!

    Cebu Ocean Park was hands down the best Ocean Park I have ever been to in my life. I have been to many ocean parks around the world, but none can match the experience here specifically, SeaTrek. Being able to interact with Marine life so close without having to know any diving knowledge it was such an incredible experience, half the time I felt like a an astranaut under the water, while the other half I felt like a mini celebrity as everyone was waving at me outside the tank. Stingray feeding was another highlight of the trip. Did you know Stingrays can break mussel shells? It was such an amazing feeling interacting with Stingray so close, feeling the suction of their mouth as they take food from you.

    Lastly, did I forget to mention the incredible Aquadining? It was my girlfriend and I's 5 month together and what better way to celebrate in an Aquarium. WE had the 4 course dining, from starters to the soup to the main course and finally the dessert. Everything was cooked to perfection. My girlfriend and I cannot be any happier. They even organised surprise proposals which we fortunately got to witnessed one as the divers pulled out a "Marry Me" flag in the tank.

    Overall 100/10 experience, would highlu recommend!

    Free to enter, not crowdered and well worth a look. Don't need a guide if you have read a small amount of the Cebu history. It is within walking distance of most tourist sites in old Cebu.

    It's clearly Greek inspired but it has a Filipino twist. Perfect combination from the structures the view and the pleasant environment. Good place to relax.

    we are a bit disappointed when we went there since there are less flowers due to typhoon odette, We did not able to experience and see the beautiful scenery of siarao garden based on pictures. But it is understandable due to typhoon odette.

    We will be back here this coming March or April, and as per our tour agency, this is the perfect time to grow back the flowers.

    A great Cathedral if you want to see religious site architecture within few minutes you'll reach. Well-kept and clean church as much as they can do and still welcomes its guest at a great condition.

    Read about this place on trip advisor and am def happy we visted. A charge of 50pesos is negligible for this slice of history. Our guide was informative and explained in detail also answering our questions with patience and interest. Def give this a VISIT have a blast.
