You're CEBU-tiful - 4 Days and 3 Nights Itineray



Cebu is the province in the Philippines that I kept coming back to. I think that there is so much to see and experience in the province and I'll never get tired of it. It was my fourth visit in Cebu and I have decided to explore its northern islands, Bantayan, and its highlands.

I stayed for 4 days and 3 nights in the province of Cebu. Three days were for tourist spots in Bantayan Island and Mountains of Cebu while the last day was for enjoying and walking around the city, buying pasalubong and tasting all the good foods that Cebu offers.


4 Days and 3 Nights Itinerary in Cebu (with costing)

Below is a detailed itinerary for our travel to Bantayan Island, Highland Mountain Tour and Cebu City Tour. I have included the estimated time and the actual costs we spent. The amount shown is on a per person basis. Yes, 4 days and 3 nights costed P6,600 per person. I travelled with my partner so some cost such as tricyle, taxi and boat fare were divided into two. The particulars column shows the total cost. I have excluded all food, tip and pasalubong expenses because these are all relative to the the traveler. :)


I will have other blog posts to discuss Bantayan Island and Cebu's Highland Tour. But for now, I hope that the itinerary below helps.
