“Beautiful view of the city!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 May 2014

Entrance to the temple is free. I like the beautiful view of city from the viewing deck. Nice photo op with the dragon by the mini replica of the Great Wall of China.

“Go to Tops if you want the best view of the city”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 May 2014

Since we're from Tops, the view of the city in this attraction was somehow nonsense to us. The difference though is that there's no entrance fee here (tops entrance fee is 100/pax). The architecture is good but I'm expecting of a bigger actual place, since photos looks like it is really big. You can put this in your IT for only 15-minute visit, then go to the tops or vise versa.

MY TIP: If you'll be going here without a service, then ask your taxi driver to wait for you. Its really a long walk from the gate to the temple. Taxi drivers in Cebu are not like of those in Manila (Im talking about the majority). Its up to you how much you will pay for the waiting hours. They would not charged you of this certain amount. 50 pesos waiting hours is what we paid for and the driver seems happy with it.

“No Pictures please!”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 May 2014

This attraction can easily be skipped! Everything about this place seems generic. Has an amusement park feel for kids. Nothing authentic or ancient about this attraction! Was in and out of the place in less than 30 minutes! Walking back to the main road after the taxi driver dropped us off the front gate was also a pain!

Who cares about the city skyline from here. Mountain view park is about 3-5 km away and you can get the BEST views from there. Skip this attraction and do not support it!

Cant take a picture of a buddah statue was a joke! LOL! I can buy the same statues less than $25.00 at a local flea market! Mayor of Cebu should shut this attraction down if it is NOT tourist friendly.

“Serene and quiet place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 May 2014 via mobile

What i like most about this place is that It has an awesome view of the city skyline.
The place is wonderful for personal reflection because the place is peaceful and quiet. You can feel the calmness and serenity of the environment. It offers a calm and serene environment ; very different from from the noise in the metropolis.
