Cebu: Sky Adventure and more!

After enjoying Bohol, it's now time to visit Cebu. It's a ferry ride away which will take less than 2 hours.


at Tagbilaran Port

2 hours later, nasa Cebu na kame. May Ayala Mall, Robinsons, SM, and the traffic- it's so like Manila!


Welcome to Cebu

As soon as we arrived Cebu City, we hurriedly checked in at Regal Business Park Hotel. I chose this hotel among the others because of the location (it's literally across Ayala Mall), good reviews and I got a 20% off! The room for two costs P1,800 which I think is pricey but for convenience, sige na nga. The lobby and reception are good, service staffs are accomodating. The room is clean but so-so (maybe because of the plain white color), but the breakfast is great. Location is the best thing. Mabilis ang free wi-fi. Overall; it's OK. But again, I wont book this if I dont have a discount.

Our first destination:


Crown Regency Hotel - source

We took a ride to Crown Regency to experience Sky Adventure. Have you heard of this? Crown Regency is the tallest (daw) hotel in the country, and they are offering these extreme rides:



Edge Coaster at 38th floor- Uniquely the world's very first and only amusement ride of its kind, the Edge Coaster goes around the edge of the building while riders are strapped onto a rail seat. Riders can indulge in a breathtaking view of the city and playfully pull a lever that can tilt their seats up to 55 degrees.


Skywalk - Walk around the edge of the building while being tied to a safety harness. The Sky Walk Extreme will take you to a leisure trip at the sky and walk you on the clouds at the 37th floor. Sounds boring eh?

Visitors must pay the entrance fee of P380 and each ride costs P500! Ang mahal! We also saw these attractions when we're in Macau. The Macau Tower offers these for P5,000! So mas mura na dito sa Cebu, kaya tara let's try! As I searched the internet, I learned that Sky Adventure extended their Holiday Promo so buy 1 take 1 for the entrance fee and rides. So much better!

The ride will last for less than 2 mins. You have a good view of the city while on this ride. No cameras allowed. The staffs are the ones who will take your souvenir photo, and of course you have to purchase it.

Edge Coaster: SO-SO! Nabored ako.

We left the hotel without claiming the free snacks. Dinner time na din kasi. Thanks to Jepoy for recommending Larsian! Imagine a foodcourt at SM malls. Tapos non-aircon yung place. And every stall is only offering barbecue meals! Walang iba kundi BBQ. Spell C-a-r-c-i-n-o-g-e-n-s?

barbecues @ Larsian

puso is equivalent to kanin

All guests will wear plastic bags in their hands. This is the proper way to eat at Larsian pala.

pwede magplastikan dito! *winks*

Food is great. Sobrang mura pa! Busog na busog kame. And though madameng tao, mababait at accomodating ang mga nagtitinda.

We love this Larsian experience!

For this shot, Enrico used his remote for SLR. Dyahe naman magsetup pa ng tripod sa ganitong place.

Yun lang, paglabas mo ng Larsian, amoy BBQ ka na din! So balik kame sa Regal to change clothes. Oh well. Enrico took a bath, and I didn't! Ang ginaw kaya.

Before waiting for 9pm, we watched Maalala Mo Kaya, yung Nova Villa and Noel Trinidad ang bida. Yung nabulag si Nova, at nagkaterminal cancer si Noel. Can anyone tell us kung ano ending nito?

Moving on, it's time to experience the night life at Cebu. Guess who is our tour guide? Who else but our blogger in Cebu: Lance.

We first went to IT park.

I think it's like a big Eastwood City. Meron na din mga Pier 1 at gimikan inside like:


The Walk

After exploring at IT parl, we transferred to


The Crossroads

Lance suggested that we should do clubbing at Vudu. Nice place nga. Ladies' entrances are free for the night.


Vudu


the bar

Perstaym ko ulit makainom after 7 months. We had a great night out. Thanks Lance for the tour!

Joaqui said...

Nice one chyng! I was planning for a weekend getaway to Cebu and will defintely go to these places.

I've been to Cebu a few times already and I did not go to the IT park or Vudu. I tried the place they call "tops" which gives a wonderful view of the entire city especially at night. And the bar of choice was of course, Doce. I think that was the name of the bar. hehehe

im also eager to try the edge coaster but i have no plans yet of going back to cebu because i was there summer last year at wala pa yung edge coaster.

i remember larsian. kahit stalls lang yon pero daming mayaman kumakain doon. i miss the puso. i forgot to recommend you to try ngohiong.

vanny said...

Garando said...

Nice! Did you notice how cute their jeepneys are? Ibang iba sa mga bulok na Sarao natin sa Manila, mas maliit, saka malinis.
Haven't visited Cebu in ages, sobrang na engganyo ako sa post mo! :)
I also like that they asked you to wear those plastic gloves while eating bbq. Para di malagkit di ba?

Chyng said...

@joshy,

darkhorse said...

nakaka-inspired naman mga places na binibisita mo...tsk! buti kpa Chyng! tc lagi... :)

Anonymous said...

i think ang reason kung bakit mabagal lang ang ride sa edge coaster kasi parang hindi na safe kung bibilisan mo pa palagay ko wala na masyadong sasakay sa taas ba naman.

Vena said...

Nakapunta ka na ba sa Bantayan Island? Baka may mairecommend kang magandang beach doon? :)

Chyng said...

hi Vena,

havent been to bantayan. pero I'm planning to go there next summer. isama na siguro yung malapascua.

kelan punta nyo?

Vena said...

Noted dun, thanks! We plan to go there this December...sana matuloy :)

Erick Garcia said...

Te Chyng, marami ka pang hindi napuntahan dito sa amin. hehehe Anyway, I'm going to Dumaguete next weekend, hopefully. ^__^
