Photo Blog: Cebu City in the eyes of a first-timer

We only had two days to explore Cebu so my mom decided to take me around the city for my first time. Cebu is such a really big place; I only see multicabs, taxis and private cars roaming around. it is advisable to rent a taxi for a more convenient touring experience.

Stop by Mactan and say hello to Datu Lapu-Lapu, the famous Cebuano leader who became a hero in the battle against the the Spanish forces. Take a glimpse of the Magellan Shrine, the spot believed to be the location of Ferdinand Magellan's death during the battle of Mactan.

See the famous Magellan's Cross housed in a chapel just by the city center. Dig away amongst the famous ukay-ukay places in the city namely Carbon, Colon and Fortuna streets. Embark on a shopping spree, dine and relax inside Ayala Center Cebu. and lastly, don't forget to take home the best Cebuano souvenir of all: danggit, pusit, chicharon and dried mangoes! And not to mention the famous Otap.
