The start of the visit was the 100 or so steps to the temple, a bit of a challenge for us of "more mature years". Taking it steadily and having protection from the sun, the climb was OK and worth the effort. The views are spectacular, and the art work, Buddhas and architecture fascinating. Although not religious, I found the... More

We rented a cab to take us there and wait while we walked the grounds. This was a highlight for us during our visit to Cebu. Very beautiful, spiritual, and serene.

Rough road ahead. NO available signage, road signs to guide tourists could've been posted to help tourists find the place.

Visiting the Taoist Temple in Cebu is like stepping from one world into another. From a bustling traffic jammed city into a spiritual world far away. The 99+ steps to reach the top are not for everyone, but the cluster of lovely temples and the great views of the city from the top are worth the effort.

Our next station is to visit China in The Philippines. Start walking near Great Wall of China to reach to the top. No photos inside the temple. Well maintained, nice decorated and many visitors.

I went to the Taoist Temple while staying in cebu the philippines. This place is a must see temple. It can be reached by taxi/ bus or motor scooter its on a very steep hill, i would definately recommend footwear with rubber soles as the stairs climbing up to the temples can be slippery due to the moisture. Photos are... More

Nothing really to see here, just a few statues on a hill for Buddhists. Nothing really exciting, cant take photos because there are guards there not allowing it. if you want to see temples or buddahs go to thailand or cambodia theres lots of that there.

Had a half day private tour that day with my friends. Its a little bit far from the city. The place was so quite since it has 5 different temples, As you go beyond the upper part you'll be able to see the whole and nice view of the Temple. One of the place needs to visit.

The Taoist Temple offered a very unique and peaceful glimpse at all of Cebu from the top. The Temple is an active place of worship, and there are informational signs all over the place. Unfortunately, you cannot take photos of the parts of the Temple you'd most want to photograph. The whole Temple can be seen in about an hour.
