It was as I expected -- a relatively unencumbered vista of the city. Despite the particularly scorching hot afternoon, the air was rather cool. A family was hogging the telescope, so I didn't get to use that -- no biggie though. Would've loved to stay for the sunset, but we had other places to go. Will definitely visit again if... More

The views are really nice but it takes a long time to get up there and the streets are often steep and bumpy. We paid a taxi driver to take us to multiple stops in the city and he mentioned how nice tops is and that usually drivers want 2,000 pesos to get up there. Well, I wouldn't pay 2,000... More

Yes all we can say is from the Top its the place to be to see all over Cebu. You will not be disappointed when you get to the top. But first you need water and good pair shoes to wear. What we did was to catch a ride from a motor biker from the city center plenty about who... More

If you want a great view of Cebu city, come here. The best time to come is early morning or late afternoon,if you want to catch sunridse or sunset, and it won't be too hot then. But don't expect to find real restaurants as there is none. You can bring food if you like and have a picnic up here.... More
