Get a view of the whole city. Make sure to go there when the weather is clear. It sometimes gets a little chilly at night so always check the weather. You need to pay an entrance fee of a P100 or about $2+. It's a 30 to 45 minute ride away from the city proper. Go there at night and bring some drinks. They are quite pricey. And please do not forget to ring the bell located on the left side.

would rate it halfway between average and very good. Long windy drive up to it, Taxi will cost you around 1000 peso return from the city. Arrived just on sunset as the lights where coming out. You can see over Cebu City and Mactan Island, but surprisingly not much further - perhaps because of Cebu's pollution / heat haze.

Well, what can I say about tops. The taxis wanted an exhorbitant rate to go down when i was up there (and complained about the fuel being used to get UP there) so you cant win. I dropped in at the Italian cafe near tops La Tegola, nice deck and view worth dropping into. Its on the left as you are heading down.

A cheap way to get up there could be from JY square (theres a mob of habal habal guys) but be careful, these guys are private operators and the particular motorbike i got had a flat back tyre and flipped over as he let the clutch fly going up the hill resulting in all of us (we were three on the bike) hitting the road. Theres other habal habal (motor bike taxis) around and better operators have clear uniform, ID tags and will not try and muck around on price as well as provide a helmet which has to be worn now. There are good habal habal operators near the minute burger (opposite the Mabolo church) on the main road that runs to SM. These guys at least I trusted to get rides here and there given they have everything ID tags, bright orange coat and rider number and all operate under one name.

Yes, they charge now Php 100 entry, but it is worth it. When i visited it was clean. The food stalls are small and have limited offers, but compared to last time years ago the place has improved.

Very nice city view. Its relaxing but the seats are not so comfortable. The food are also limited. But over all rating its not bad for a first time experience.
