Cebu City at 0430hrs

Imagine that I land in Mactan at 0400hrs and my next transport leaves at 1000hrs.

Can anyone suggest what I can do to pass my time? If it is around 0900hrs, it would be easy but at 0400hrs..... I am lost here.

I do not care whether is it a bikini bar, cafe, lounge, milk bar, chocolate bar etc. I just need a place to rest before my next transport. With cheap food and drink will be better!

Anyone has any suggestions?

Thanks.

I would think the IT park would be a good option. It is call center capital so lots of restos, coffee shops, spas and so on. If you want to rest for a bit, good option would be Queensland. It is like Sogo. ;)

as S2S suggested, IT park most probably will have coffee shops and restos offering 24 hours service. According to the opening post, the operational word is REST. I do not see how you can REST in a bikini bar. The only people who fall asleep in a bikini bar should be those who had too much to drink already.

Options aside from the coffee shops and restos at IT park would be going into the lobby of the bigger hotels, order 1 drink, and sit in one of their comfortable sofas. Or, check in at one of those drive through motels. It will not be the first time that MH will be using these motels in the Philippines, though the use by MH is totally different as to what these establishments are normally used for.

You haven't said where your next transport leaves from. Do you have to be back at the airport?

Hi Jim,

Next transport will be a boat to Bohol but I need not take the first boat out.

So the late departure. :)

You will not be in the city until about 5.30am . Most if not all bikini bars and discos will be closed or closing.

Me personally, if I was not staying in Cebu City, I would just go straight to pier 1 for the OceanJet to Bohol

Tommo,

After a few SML, I don't think you can differentiate whether is it me in bikini or a biking girl is dancing. :p
