Things to Do in Cebu

Thursday, January 12, 2017

A few years ago, my friends and I took part in Cebu's Sinulog Festival. It was also my birthday week, very timely for this trip and the nightly parties. Those were the days!

This year, from January 13-15, Smart will be part of the two biggest parties in Sinulog: LifeDance and Invasion. As always, if it's a #SmartSinulog party, I'm sure it will be a epic! Aside from the partying, here are other things you can do since you're already in Cebu:

1) Visit Heritage Sites

 Casa Gorordo - Where you can find the original Noli Me Tangere and El Filibusterismo.

The Magellan's Cross - Located at the city center of Cebu, The Magellan's Cross is the first Christian cross planted in the Philippines' soil by the Portuguese and Spanish explorers.

Basilica Minore del Santo Nino - One of Cebu's old and beautiful churches, looks super festive during Sinulog season.

Lapu-Lapu within the Mactan Shrine - A historical place where Lapu-Lapu and his killed the Spanish leader Ferdinand Magellan.

Philippine Taoist Temple - As if you're in another country, it's a nice place to relax and take nice photos.

2) Food Trip

Whenever I am in Cebu, it's always about eating!!! Make sure not to miss the following:

Fresh and dried mangoes (also the best pasalubong)


Abaca Baking Company

Casa Verde

Dessert Factory

Circa 1900

La Vie Parisienne


3) Side-Trips and Other Adventures

Make sure to drop by Cebu's nearby beaches--Or why not extend your trip to nearby Bohol, Oslob, or the Kawasan Falls?

Cebu makes high-quality guitars at affordable price, the perfect souvenir or pasalubong.

Sky Experience Adventure at Crown Regency
