Overlooking Spots in Cebu

Follow nenskeis on WordPress.com

Maybe because somehow I got invited to a few of my friend’s getaway trips with his colleagues, but I think there’s more to it. There’s something about Cebu that makes me want to come back; it’s calling me. Not a Moana theme, but one thing I am sure of is, it’s definitely not the traffic. Perhaps its the overlooking spots in Cebu.

Maybe this is a catch-up post too, I only published one article last year which was about my trip to Sante Fe, Bantayan. Visited the Virgin Island in Bantayan for a sunset view.

Well, there a lot of things you can do in Cebu. From sightseeing, adrenaline adventure, beach hopping, waterfalls hunting and much more.

So, here are the things I’ve done in Cebu in 2016.

After our trip to Bantayan, I am supposed to witness the Sinulog Festival 2016 Grand Parade on Sunday together with Reyjan’s colleagues, but I went home on the same day because something came up back home – family matters.

After six months I came back to Cebu to attend the Boscoffeechela hosted by my most favorite, Bo’s Coffee, for celebrating their 20 years.


Sadly, I only came here alone. Reyjan was enjoying Bohol at that time with friends. He did invite me, though. I didn’t stay long at Boscoffeechela either. Suddenly, I don’t know how to make friends. HAHA. There were actually a lot of activities, but I just felt so alone. 😓 Or tired? I hadn’t gotten much sleep that day too (excuses 😅). HAHAHA. I wish I had seen David Guison there, though. Anyways!

To make my stay in Cebu worthwhile, I decided I would just make it up to myself the next day. So I did. Luckily, I have another friend in Cebu who can come with me that day, not the whole day though. She still needs to work; she’s actually my sister’s best friend. 🙂

My next itinerary was to visit some overlooking spots in Cebu City, including SM Seaside City Cebu, the Sky-scraping Crown Regency Hotel & Towers, the Temple of Leah, Lantaw Restaurant, and La Vie Parisienne, which was optional, but we still went for one bottle.

This is my first time ever at SM Seaside. It was newly opened too. This was also the time when I bought my MyBus Card, a convenient and cheaper way to commute, especially when going to and from the airport. All routes cost Php 25.00.

I only took pictures in the Sky Garden it’s a pretty overlooking spots in Cebu. Yes, that’s the famous cube of SM Seaside City Cebu. After a brief walk around SM Seaside, I returned to I.T Park at 3 pm to meet Ate Aimee there. However, due to her unexpected commitment, we decided to meet an hour later. So, I pushed through my long-time desire to go to Crown Regency Hotel and Towers for the Sky Experience Adventure, one of the overlooking spots in Cebu. I’ve been eager to try the Skywalk, but the time hasn’t come yet to satisfy that adrenaline rush within me. It was afternoon when I arrived, and honestly, the Skywalk is much better to experience at night. So, I only tried the Sky Observatory. I enjoyed it, besides, nothing beats the view from the 38th floor. 😉 Indeed, one of the overlooking spots in Cebu.

Ate Aimee and I met at JY Mall, from there we took a ‘habal-babal’ ride going Temple of Leah. The fare is Php 75.00 each. P.S: Don’t mind my messy hair. LOL

Temple of Leah is a story of undying love. Read all the history here http://templeofleah.com/.

We witnessed the sunset, and our little tummies were hungry. Lantaw is just a 5-10 minute walk from the Temple. I was so ready to eat, but it took a little while because Lantaw was full-house. Temple of Leah and Lantaw Restaurant are definitely in the overlooking spots in Cebu list.

But the wait was worth it. Perfect night view as an overlooking spots in Cebu served with great food. Everything we ordered exceeded our expectations. We had Crispy Pata, Baked Scallops (my favorite), and Cordova Express. After we indulged ourselves in these delectable foods, we headed to La Vie to have some wine before we called it a night.

This is not my last visit to Cebu for 2016 yet, there’s one more to come. 🙂
