I thought this to be a very beautiful and interesting Temple. It is true that there are many stairs, but really only on the way out. Have the taxi driver take you to the entrance at the top of the hill. They will usually wait for you at the bottom of the hill, but it will cost you some extra. About the picture taking: you are just not allowed to take pictures of the inside of the buildings. You can take all the pictures you like outside the buildings, and of the buildings, just not the statues of the Saints and other objects inside the structures. It is a very large temple with ponds, koi, a gift shop, and of course the view of Cebu City.

You take a taxi from the centre..and in about 10 min drive, you`re there...I got blown away by the view over the city...and the athmosphere there is really nice....Really worth a visit!

This wasn't part of our itinerary but I liked that it was up on the mountain, with a great view of Cebu City.

It has beautiful gardens and is rich in culture. There's a wishing well, so throw in your coins and make a wish!

Unless you're into temples, it's okay to pass on this one in your itinerary. We went here as a friend suggested so. It is located within a residential area. Arriving there, we didn't notice any taxis nor public transport nearby to take you back to the city proper. With quick thinking and not wanting to have a hard time going back to our hotel, we made an arrangement with the cab driver to wait for us before getting off the taxi (for an arranged fee, of course & its not cheap). Inside, its a good opportunity for souvenir photos that you have been there; other than that not much to rave about. It's a good exercise though, climbing the stairs up the temple.

A small Taoist Temple. You are not allowed to take pictures of the statues. Make sure you take photos discreetly. ^_^
