The Weekend Trip to Cebu and Bohol

Our original plan was to have a day tour in Cebu City but since Airphil Express cancelled their early morning flights  we grabbed the opportunity to rebooked our flight and changed it to a 2 days 3 nights vacation without any charges. Together with my daughter and some friends, we took the 7:00pm flight bound for  Cebu, Mactan Airport. We spend our first night at CSC Office Dormitory.
Port of Cebu

Wake up call was 3:00am the following day since we had to catch the 5:45am in  trip in Pier 1  to Tubigon, Bohol. The fare is Php200.00 one way for tourist class and pPhp280.00 for business class. We had our breakfast in a fastfood near the Port of Tubigon and afterwards we bought some extra food and water.

Our first stop was in Sagbayan Peak a 30-minute ride via Bus. If you're traveling with children, Sagbayan Peak  is must visit with lots of cartoon characters statue and a playground. Before leaving Sagbayan Peak, we arranged a motorcycle that will tour us around Bohol at the rate of Php600.00 good for two persons. We visited Chocolate Hills in Carmen, Manmade Forest in Bilar, Tarsiers in Loboc and Sagbayan, Man Made Forrest,  Hanging Bridge, Loboc River, Albuquerque Church,  Loboc Church and Museum, Loboc Church Bell Tower, Baclayon Church, Blood Compact Shrine, St. Joseph Cathedral  in Tagbilaran City and Our Lady of the Assumption in  Dauis. It was already 5:00pm when we arrived at my grandmothers house where we spend the night.

In the afternoon, we visited Taoist Temple, Magellans Cross and Basilica de Sto. Nino, Cebu Cathedral. We were lucky to have a free accommodation from our friends residence Mr. and Mrs. Jhay-R and Bernadine Gonzaga of Cebu City. We stayed for the night and leave Cebu the next morning.
