When In Manila and you’re too preoccupied with work and constant stress, you tend to neglect your relationships. The solution? Set aside a time to reconnect with the people you love. Better yet, take a trip to Cebu and do something you’ve never done before. Here’s our suggestion for couples, especially on your first time in Cebu.
4. Take the habal-habal to Tumalog Falls
If you find yourself in the area and got nothing in plan to do, I suggest you start your adventure at Tumalog Falls. Just take a look at this beauty:
We wanted to go canyoneering, but operations have been stopped until August 2016. But our trip to Tumalog Falls turned out to be a wonderful option, after all.
3. Go “lechon hopping”
Cebu is famous for its lechon so if you’re fond of it, don’t miss the chance to eat lechon in Cebu. I personally don’t eat lechon but the bf wanted a comparison so we went to Zubuchon and Rico’s Lechon.
Zubuchon: Mactan Marina Mall, M. L. Quezon National Highway, Ibo, Cebu
Rico’s Lechon: Airport Road, Ibo, Cebu (walking distance from Marina Mall) also at F. Cabahug St, Cebu City, Cebu
Ayer’s Lechon, Cebu’s Original Lechon Belly, Ana’s Lechon: Mactan Alfresco, The Mactan Newtown, M. L. Quezon National Highway, Mactan, Cebu (also at SM City Cebu)
2. DIY your city tour
If you want to go around the city, there are different jeepneys you can ride. You can also walk if you’re up for i,t and stop at a few famous spots. It’s a good exercise after stuffing your belly with all the lechon you ate.

1. Stay and relax at a luxurious 5-star hotel
I did say take a trip to reconnect, right? What better way to reconnect than to spend some alone time at a luxurious 5-star hotel? After all the walking and adventure, you deserve to rest, relax, and be pampered.
Which 5-star hotel you ask? Shangri-la’s Mactan Resort & Spa, of course!
Take a dip at the pool, rest on the soft, cozy bed, or walk by the beach.
After that, have a romantic al fresco dinner at Cowrie Cove.
You’ll have a full day with these activities and having Shangri-la’s Mactan Resort & Spa as your final stop will make for a sweet ending to your day. Inside the resort, you’ll feel like you’re in a different place: calm, serene and connected. You’ll definitely wake up refreshed and rejuvenated the next day.
