If you have read my previous post, you would know that for the first time last March, I finally visited Cebu City. It was just for a short visit though, a side trip from our Bohol family vacation. It was so short a stay we don't have time to even look for shops with affordable souvenirs and native delicacies (not even otap or dried mangoes). But we were still able to squeeze in a few hours for a walking tour around this queen city of the south to marvel on some of its famous landmarks. I thought then I couldn't say for sure that I could bring my family back here again, it's better if we tour around the city, at least.
So after a few minutes of rest in the hotel, we went out to do our walking tour. It's literally a walking tour; from our hotel in Colon street, we walk our way to Basilica del Sto. Nino to the nearby Plaza Independencia and finally, to Fort San Pedro. And why did we do that? Because I thought the Basilica is near our hotel. :P (Before we left the hotel, I checked out my phone for directions. I figure it would be easier to follow directions from my phone's map than asking the locals. The downside - places look closer (just several blocks away) if viewed in the map when actually, they are far apart!) Though it's still within walking distance, it's kinda far if you're tired and you've just been from a long trip.
