And so the adventures of Frank and Mae continue on and for this week,   they’ve decided to crossover Luzon island and fly directly to the Queen City of the south to discover  and experience its magnificence and to give you all a heads up on the things you never should miss when going to Cebu! 

There is no doubt that it’s truly more fun in the Philippines with all the various sites, sounds and experiences all readily there for everyone to adore!

Choosing a place to stay is indeed very vital in any vacation of course! Keep in mind that these occasions serve as your reward to yourselves so before booking a hotel or a resort, it pays to do much research to get your money’s worth. For us, a place must have a good location, great amenities, fantastic food and one-of-a-kind service.. basically, a place which can remind you how great life is! Yeah, that’s how we epicureans think!

Ok time to start the journey again and take you to majestic Cebu with our photos!!

Like most Filipinos, we also enjoy  booking flights whenever Cebu Pacific  sell very affordable fares! Cebu Pacific  made it sooo possible for locals to fly and see the country! Before, flying was considered as a luxury and only for a few who can afford it, but now Cebu Pacific fares are sometimes even more affordable than land travel!  Flying via Cebu Pacific is very easy and safe and no matter how other airlines would also offer affordable rates, we still go for a tried and tested name like Cebu Pacific!

 

The flight from Manila to Cebu lasted for about an hour via Cebu Pacific. We arrived at the Mactan Int’l Airport around noon and we were just in time for our check-in at our preferred resort for this trip – Crimson Mactan

We noticed that majority of visitors were foreigners. I couldn’t help but feel a bit melancholy… I wish more Filipinos would get to experience this paradise as well!  Perfect for romantic getaways, family outings and honeymoons!

The Food:

Oh! Their buffets were all satisfying! I remember spending a lot of hours devouring on their dishes! We loved their desserts station so much! Their cakes were so delectable! We also loved their healthy smoothies!  The restaurant staff were also very warm and attended to our every need!

Crimson Mactan was just soooo perfect that we didn’t want to leave the whole weekend! But of course, it would be a shame not to experience the majesty of the Queen City of the South so Frank and I made and effort to search for MUST EXPERIENCE things when in Cebu!
