Travel Diary: Cebu 2012, Day 2

20150720-01.jpg

Continuing on with the city tour from the first day, we went to more historical landmarks + viewing points in Cebu. It was blazing hot that day, you'll see in the extremely bright photos ahead, but we went out anyway because how often are you in a different island, eh?

We went to:

+ Fort San Pedro. This triangular fort was a military defense structure built by the Spaniards (with Cebuano labourers). Although little was known about the activity inside the Fort, it was believed to be built to repel Muslim raiders and later became a stronghold for Filipino revolutionaries. The two sides of the Fort face the ocean and was fortified with canons while the other side faced the land and was secured with a strong wood palisade.

+ Taoist Temple. It's a temple built by Cebu's Chinese community. The structure is 980 feet above sea level which makes it a great viewing spot in Cebu. It's also open to both worshipers and non-worshipers!

+ TOPS Lookout, Busay. TOPS is basically a viewing deck, period. I believe it's the highest point in Cebu which makes it great for photos + seeing the sprawling city in miniature form. It's a great place to relax, unwind and hand out with your best friends (which is what I did) ;)

Now, let the photo-spam commence!

Thirty-two days left before the next adventure with my soul sisters and our plus ones! Until then, I'll have these photos to curb the wanderlust ;)
