Travel To Cebu City

I had been to Cebu City for several times already but never got the chance to visit Cebu’s main attractions. I went there just to spent vacation at my relative’s house. Nevertheless, the greatest visit I had ever experienced was during the time when my family decided to travel to Cebu during its yearly fiesta, the Sinulog Festival. The famous Sinulog festival in Cebu City held every year on the third Sunday of January. Many tourists, foreigners and celebrities came to see and experienced the festival. The festival is characterized by a very long parade with many groups of people dressed in colorful costumes, finding their way through the streets while dancing the Sinulog. This Sinulog dance is now the traditional and ritual dance in honor of Santo NiƱo and accompanied by the sound of drums. We were so happy having the trip done during the Festival-seeing people dancing in the streets.
After the Sinulog festival, aside from sightseeing and mall hopping, we visited some of Cebu’s main attractions such as The Magellan’s Shrine, Taoist Temple, Mactan Island passing the Mactan Bridge, and of course, over viewing the whole city at Hill Tops of Cebu. The whole escapade was been completed with tasting Cebu's delicacies.
