The last two days of our 4day Anniversary Celebration/Vacation was spent in the most popular island in Visayas, Cebu. Like Bohol, it was also our second time to visit this island. We are glad we settled to book for this province again 'cause there are lots of beautiful spots we haven’t yet seen apart from the newest exciting attraction that the island offers, the Sky Experience Adventure that I have enjoyed and blogged earlier.
After our Ocean Jet ride of about an hour from the port of Tagbilaran, we disembarked in the Port of Cebu. We realized that in this area, taxi drivers are equally hassles as the barkers who were forcing us to pay a contract price of 4 to 5X of the normal fare instead of using the taxi meter. Too annoyed by the swarm of smelly boys around us all asking for tips, we stood on not giving in to their harassment.
The hotel that we booked in was only few blocks away from the port and only few steps away from the mid-city’s commercial center. It is a relatively clean and well maintained place with hot shower, phone, wifi, gym, and cafeteria. Hubby even took advantage of the stationary bike for long hours.
We hired a van thru the assistance of the hotel’s receptionist. How glad we were to see a very brand new Toyota Grandia fetching us. We were toured around the island the whole day then alighted in Crown Regency Hotel Towers for the Sky adventure. Stayed there till late in the evening even long after we’ve enjoyed the Sky Adventure and the sumptuous buffet dinner at the Sparkz Restobar at the 37th floor. Just couldn’t get over admiring the city’s scenic lights from the tower’s top view deck. Great sight of Cebu indeed!
The last remaining day was spent on some last minute sightseeing around the vicinity after the same van picked us up to bring us to the airport for our 5pm flight to Manila.
