Travel Diary: Queen City of the South CEBU

By Wanderlust By Enn - 5:55:00 AM

Our flight to Cebu is at 5:40 in the morning. We landed at Mactan International Airport at around 8:10 in the morning because of the delayed flight. But nonetheless our flight was good. I was really excited for this trip and because this will be our first trio trip, referring to me, my mom and my sister. We don't book any tour package cause we want to have our own time in every places we will visit. 

We went straight to Basilica Menor de Santo Nino in San Roque Cebu and arrive there at 8:50 am, thanks God there is already Grab Taxi in Cebu cause the line to the cab was really long. It was really planned that the first thing that we will do is visit these Church. My mom wanted to go back to Sinulog. Hahaha

At 10 am we are already in Lahug, for La Vie Parisienne, the best winery and bakery in Cebu. We didn't dine in to have lunch but we do bought breads to experience the taste of it. And yes, the bread is worth every penny. Then went straight to our hotel to leave our luggage because the Mandarin Plaza Hotel was fully-booked we can't have an early check-in. But we left our luggage at there concierge. We have our lunch at Hukad sa Golden Cowrie located in Ayala Center Cebu and it was the best lutong bahay I've tasted of course next to my mom's cooking. 

We also have a little shopping spree at H&M and Mango before going back to our hotel which is a 5 minute drive away from Mandarin Plaza Hotel. Why do we even brought so much clothes when we will just shop here in Cebu. We had our check-in at around 2pm and then fell asleep. 

Around 4:30 in the afternoon we are on our way to the Mactan Shrine and arrived there at 5:10 pm. After visiting Mr. Lapu-lapu and touring around the shrine, we went to SM Seaside the biggest mall in Asia as of 2015 to have our dinner. Only few boutiques were open, maybe because the mall opened last Dec. 19, 2015. We also do a shopping spree at F21 and Mossimo. Then went back to the hotel to rest.
