Cebu City Tour

Cebu City Tour

Cebu City is the queen city of the South in the Philippines. It’s the second biggest Metropolitan area in the Philippines. It is the first Spanish settlement in the country making it the oldest city. It has a lot of history. In this Cebu City Tour, we went to visit the Old Fort which is pictured above. We also went to see Magellan’s cross, not the original of course but a representation of it. We also saw some old churches.

Best Western Plus Cebu Review

Best Western Plus Cebu Review

I chose Best Western Plus Cebu because it was reasonably priced including breakfast and it was centrally located. The Cebu Ferry Terminal is only 3 kilometers away. There are also a lot of restaurants around the area. In fact, there is a McDonald next door. The rooms look great and the breakfast was nice. Looking back, I wish we had stayed on Mactan Island although the hotels there are much more expensive. I hope this Best Western Cebu Plus Review gives you an insight on what it’s like to stay in this hotel.

Coast Pool Bar

Coast Pool Bar

Coast Pool Bar is a cozy bar by the pool and the beach at South Palms Resort. We mostly had lunch here but we also had dinner once when we thought the main restaurant was a bit noisy. Prices are expensive. We love the colorful tables and chairs strewn around the bar. The decor is really fun and chic. I think they share the same menu with the Oceania restaurant which is the main restaurant of the resort. They are open almost all day except for breakfast serving lunch, dinner and in between drinks or snacks.
