Where I stayed
The taxi from the hotel to the mall cost us three times the metered price - nothing grates me more than a mother of a rip off that you can't avoid! Well, I blame the hotel as they called the cab for us so should insist on metred taxis only. We stayed at the Waterfront Hotel opposite the airport, and I mean directly opposite, like we could jump out our bed into the departures entrance (I wish!) so I guess it's presumed that we're millionaires, but alas!
We spent over 5 hours in the mall that was heaving with Sinulog celebrators everywhere: we did play our part and bought local Sinulog tshirts
It pissed it down that evening so we had to trapse through the rain and mud to find a taxi back during one of the biggest festivals in the Philippines! Still, we got to watch fireworks whilst we walked. We walked as far away as we could from the main hub until we found an empty taxi who got us home in record time, taking back roads to avoid all the Sinulog traffic.
Got our wake up call at 6am from the front desk after which we proceeded to stuff our hungry faces with the buffet brekkie, so yummy! Off to the airport for our 10am Cebu Pacific flight to Puerto Princess: bring on Palawan and the 'monsterious' limestone beauty, soo excited! Ok, but now for some RTFM time with the new Olympus camera - watch this space for the underwater pics... ♫ La la la la lah - Cebu! ♫ Cebu
