Nice view of the Cebu City from the Tops. At the top you this view point and a small range of eateries where you can have some food and relax and enjoy the City view. I was there during night and the weather was kind enough to welcome us with passing clouds and a warm drizzle.

The view literally took my breath away, be best to go in the afternoon and stay to watch the sunset, appreciate the view, and there's also a bell where you can supposedly make a wish but besides being a well used pre-nup and date location, with a few stalls for food and drinks, the whole area wasnt as big as...

Not much to see except for the view looking down at the city. The ride going up to the top was a bit hairy and quite far, so unless it is your first time to be there, it's not really worth going back to, except for the restroom with a broken door and a lot of big mosquitoes flying around... More

If there's one thing you should go to in Cebu, this is it. Great for relaxing and unwinding after a long day. Watch the sunset, and just look at the city lights when the sun's down. It's like looking at heaven upside down.

We did the journey up the mountain to find a nice place that presented an excellent panoramic view of the surrounding areas. The bonus was that the temperature was much cooler up there than it was in downtown areas which was a refreshing change. We also visited the zip line attraction nearby and that too was an enjoyable experience. Worth... More

We went here by renting a taxi cab for P1,200 and stayed there until 8pm. The view was great at night as the city lights made the horizon a wondrous spectacle.

You can stop a few drives after the entrance and check out the Map of the Place. you can either choose to go to the Pool, Cottage, or the deck, where you can have Wine or Coffee as you watch the View of Cebu from above. I prefer during Evening. Chilly and the lights of Cebu is... More

A great look out spot to enjoy a picnic with friends. Set yourself up and enjoy panoramic views of Cebu and Lapu-Lapu cities.

We really enjoyed TOPS. Even the drive up was a wee bit adrenaline-inducing (but maybe I'm just a little afraid of heights). When I saw the entrance I was afraid it was going to be pretty underwhelming, but once we saw the view I was really glad we went. We will go regularly while we are here in Cebu, I... More
