Half-Day Tour in Cebu and Mactan

You will see the most interesting and beautiful places of the islands of Cebu and neighboring Mactan. Hear about the colonization of the Philippines and, in detail, the story of Magellan and the leader Lapu Lapu. In the house-museum I will talk about the traditions and way of life of the Filipinos. We will also admire the panoramas at the observation decks and learn about the production of guitars and dried mangoes.

the fruits and vegetables are fresh and cheap. its better and cheaper to buy from wholesale vendors tending their products along the street. its wise to check the prices first before buying. prices are usually more than 50% or 100% less than in the supermarket. pineapple and melon cost only 20 per kilo, while in supermarket its 50 to 60 per kilo.

if you like shopping this will be the write place , endless shops both sides , you can find everything there at cheap price . open early morning at 7am and not sure what times closes . it could be dangerous if you not careful enough , i have not gone through any bad experience although i went there almost everyday for 2 weeks . i was told not to take my mobile out of my pocket to take picture , because its not safe . i also keep my hand inside my pocket holding my cash most of the time . its very good if you cook yourself as you can get fresh veg + fish +meet+ chicken. fresh coconut to drink is only 30 pps . if you walk to the church the shops start , streets full of shops most of the prices are fixed but if you shop around you can find same cloth or shows been sold cheaper than others metro mall is very good to get at kitchen or tools stuff .western union is also cheaper to exchange money than cebu city centre . general the best is to take us dollars the commission is almost nothing , brit-pounds is the worst so is the euro , one last thing , its easy to get lost there

Not a tourist market by any stretch but a good experience to see how the locals live. The produce seems fresh but we weren’t game to buy any. Be prepared for everyone to stare at you as you walk past. Nothing was stolen but I didn’t feel particular safe, especially with lots of small kids running past us in the narrow laneways.

I went there with my aunt and this market is the most dirty market I ever seen. Naked kids playing on the crowded street, mostly selling used clothes,vegetables,fish and fruits We are the only foreigner walking on the street. This market mainly for their local peoples only. After walking a few street with my aunt suddenly someone snatched my necklace from behind and ran away. I shouted and turn around and saw a kid around 12 years old who snatched my necklace. Warning to all tourists, you will be target if you go there, unless you are in a big group. This place is not safe for tourists.
