If your in Cebu for one day you can pretty much fill your day with everything on this list. I have tried to compact it into areas so you can see as much as possible in the least amount of time. For example the Basilica is tied with Magellan’s cross because they are at the same location, within a stones throw is Fort San Pedro. So if you follow everything in order you will get to see the most in the least amount of time!
One of the easiest sites to find in Cebu is Magellan’s cross due to its religious location outside the Basilica. You can click through to our other site for more information on Magellan’s cross
The Basilica often gets very busy for prayer not only on special occasions but daily. Worth visiting to see the historical building. For more photos of the Basilica in Cebu.
Heading out past Magellan’s cross with the Basilica behind you Fort San Pedro is on the left you may prefer to get a taxi for safety reasons as there have been known pickpocket and bag snatching in the area. Fort San Pedro more information and photos.
After San Pedro you can grab a taxi to Sugbo Museum which was the former prison for Cebu, the dancing inmates that can be found on YouTube are located in the new prison so no dancers here! but a lot of historical and cultural information. A narrator will walk you round. For more of my photos and information on Sugbo museum please click the link.
Top off the morning/early afternoon by a visit to Casa Gorordo I will try and get round for a visit this week but historically an interesting building in Cebu to visit. As well as being near the previous sights. Once finished up here no doubt its time for a bite to eat and you have a choice of SM or Ayala malls to choose from as the next part of the journey is heading a little out of the city.
After a stroll round the mall and a bite to eat its off to the Taoist temple located in Beverly Hills. A strong symbol of the connection between Cebu and its Chinese community. Also due to its location it gives some wonderful views ideal for grabbing some photos but be warned photographing the people within the temple is forbidden.
Finishing the day off “at the tops” Worth seeing early dawn or last thing at night as the city sparkles with is lights while the natural beauty surrounds it. You can either bring food with you although there are a few small locations inside the tops location it may actually pay to go to one of the restaurants or resorts to finish off the evening with a nice meal after your visit. The location of the tops is around 2000 m above sea level giving it a cool breeze in the evenings worth bringing a jacket for.
