I bet most people would have a negative bias when talking about Pasil. Yes, it can get smelly, dirty and a bit unsafe if you are not careful. But for those who simply want to get their money’s worth to get the freshest seafood at the lowest cost possible for their budget, this is the place to be.
Being a Cebuano, you must be well-informed of the different hospitals around the City that you can access in times of health crises. Of course, accessing hospital services needs a lot of things to consider too. Make sure it’s: (1) near your place, (2) suits the health budget, and of course, (3) it can cater to your current health needs.
No one’s going to question the beauty of Philippine seas when it comes to diving spots. If you want to try diving and snorkeling without neither spending too much nor going such as distance, simply stay in Cebu and experience the beauty below the waters of the Queen City of the South.
Part I: Jeepneys are Dangerous
Cebuanos know that jeepneys are particularly dangerous spaces to be in. Normally, people who take jeepneys do not bring along any of the following:
One of the more popular hotels in Cebu City, the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino is located at Salinas Drive, Lahug Cebu City, 6000 Philippines. It is roughly 30 minutes away from the Mactan Cebu International Airport via private transport or cab. If you have pets, do take note that no pets are allowed inside the hotel.
Part II: Colon is Dangerous
Actually, nearly every street is dangerous in Cebu but Colon takes the crown. Try walking along the area and I will give you P10,000 if you see someone teetering in genuine Jimmy Choo shoes or carrying original Gucci bags.
I couldn’t forget the first time I roamed around the City of Cebu, way back when I was 15 years old. I took an entrance exam at the University of San Carlos and it was actually my first time to wander here all by myself, without my family or friends.
The Philippines, being an archipelago, has a lot of lighthouses. Before the existence of radars or even GPS, lighthouses used to provide directions to boats, ships, and other vessels. These lighthouses are also called as parolas locally. When one says parola in Cebu, people would immediately get to think of the parola or lighthouse in Lilo-an.
Cebu is endowed with natural resources that benefit a lot of Cebuanos. There are also a lot of sights to see in Cebu. Be it from the seas to the mountains, there’s always something worthwhile to check out and do. You will never run out of beaches, nature spots and mountain parks in Cebu. There’s an abundance of all of these things in Cebu.
Cebu is popular for a lot of things. One, for our sweet mangoes. Second, for our cheap, high-quality, hand-crafted guitars. I personally would go for lovingly hand-crafted guitars over the mass produced China-made ones. Cebu-made guitars are made of various types of wood including jackfruit wood, Narra wood and ebony.
