Anyway, for Day 3, we decided to just book a tour package that our hotel, Crown Regency Guadalupe, offered. Two packages were available: PhP1,500 for the first 3 hours and PhP350 for succeeding hours, and an 8-hour package for PhP3,000. These are rates for car usage. Tours that require a van will cost slightly higher.
Day 3 was our most packed:
- Magellan's Cross
- Basilica del Sto. Niño
- Fort San Pedro
- Museo Sugbo
- Taoist Temple
- Lapu-Lapu Shrine
- Alegre Guitar Factory
- Plantation Bay
Magellan's Cross & Basilica del Sto. Niño
This is where Magellan's Cross resides.
Sarimanok.PH. Suffice to say that you pay these old women (PhP10 per candle) to pray for you and your family and they will do so by dancing while chanting their prayers.
Fort San Pedro
I wish those doors weren't locked. There were mini museums inside this fortress and we didn't get to see them.
Cebu Inmates dance to tunes like the Wonder Girls' Nobody.
Cebu Taoist Temple
Manila's Seng Guan Temple.
Souvenir stalls. Those frogs don't look like they're enjoying themselves.
lechon, Cebu is known for its popular guitars. In fact, these babies are exported across the globe. Alegre Guitars is touted to be the best in the industry.
Luxury Hotels: Plantation Bay & Waterfront
Fairmont Chateau in Whistler, Canada.
Anyway, this is another hotel I must try in the future. Hopefully, I can afford it by then. Hehe.
Day 3 was our most productive day, honestly. We still had a few activities after the tour but I'll talk about those in two future posts, one of them will be appearing in Sarimanok.PH.
