5D/4N Southern Cebu x Sinulog Itinerary + Estimated Expenses 2016



Below is my itinerary and estimated travel expenses on my Cebu trip.

Note: I was supposed to leave Cebu on the 18th of January, but I missed my flight so I decided to extend for 2 days. I didn’t include the expenses of my additional days of stay and in Sinulog since it’s subjective.

Since we asked the tricycle driver to wait for us, we asked him to drop us off at MB Sunrise Resort, where we rode a bus bound to Cebu City (or you can just wait for a bus in front Cancu-ay Beach Resort since it’s accessible from where the buses are heading to anyway). Ask the driver to drop you off at Dalaguete or near Osmena Peak. (PHP 60.00)

    Hi! Have you tried booking your trips through travel agencies online? Any tips?

      Hi! On this trip, we decided to do it ourselves since we want to do it on our own time and pace. But some of my trips like in Baler and Ilocos, I contacted Travel Factor and DLC Travel &Tours. Just make time to read the review section of their facebook page to make sure they’re legitimate agencies. ☺️

    hi there, may i know the pension house where you stayed in the city?

      Sorry I forgot the name of the Pension House cause it was my friend who reserved the place. If you ride a 01 coded jeep, ask the driver to drop you off at Shamrock Pasalubong Center. From there, you can just ask the locals the nearest pension house. 😁


  3. Good thing you experienced Sinulog Festival here in our town. See you this Sinulog 2017!
