I wonder why I don’t go to Cebu more often since it was only an hour’s flight from Manila. My round trip plane ticket on PAL cost only P2,500. I think I should travel around the Philippines more.
My friend Tes goes to Cebu regularly to visit her brother. Her first tip to visitors to Cebu is upon exiting the airport, go across and up to departure area and take the taxi from there. It’s cheaper! Take the white taxi which has a flag down rate of P40. Our cab ride to the Marriott Hotel cost P200. If you take the yellow taxis outside the arrival area the flag down rate is P65-70.
Actually this taxi tip works for Manila’s Naia airport too. The taxi cabs from the departure area are much cheaper. I recently had to take the taxi from Naia airport to Greenhills, San Juan and paid only P150 since it was early in the morning and there was hardly any traffic. If I took the yellow taxi it would cost 30% more.
I always take pictures of the hotel’s toiletries since I myself research the toiletries of the hotels I will stay in so I will know if I have to bring my own stuff or not. I like hotels that offer L’Occitane toiletries.
The Garden Cafe is where you have breakfast and buffet meals all throughout the day. Tes and I didn’t get breakfast with our room but our friends Eric and Rizette did. We joined them on our last day and sneaked a taste of the chicken tocino and longganisa. Both were so good!!
