5. Colon Street

I worked at Colonnade Mall. Old movie houses, ukay-ukay shops, posters, baber shops, grocery
stores etc are on its line.

6. Cebu Heritage Monument / Parian
7. Taoist Temple
Built in 1972, located in Beverly Hills Lahug for the substantial Chinese community in cebu. It’s entrance to the
temple is a replica of the Great Wall of China.
|Taoist Temple – never had the chance to visit this place until we did our Pre-nup . . .|
Maybe one of the most overrated tourist spot in Cebu. At the top of Nivel Hills, you will enjoy overlooking Cebu City. It
doesn’t offer much, just a place to relax and see far with its horizon.
*Entrance Fee – 100 Pesos (Price as of 2016)

9. Cebu’s Provincial Capitol
