MxUAKk trip: a Taoist temple on a hill in Cebu

When people talked about Philippines, the two cities that will definitely pop-out in my mind are Manila and Cebu. Myself and Kania has visited Manila before, and it’s time for Cebu. Similar to Manila, we only had a blink of time to explore Cebu, even the time in Cebu was shorter than the one in Manila. Still we managed to have a one full day in Cebu, and we had arranged what places to visit just to save the time. Plus we agreed to use the taxi to make us easy to commute. We glad that taxis in Cebu were willing to use the argometer, and we also glad that we got a kind taxi driver 🙂

First place that we visited in Cebu was a Taoist temple that located in a very high class housing complex.

The location is in the north of Quest Hotel Cebu, the place that we stayed in Cebu, while the other places that we visited located in the south of our hotel, so it’s wise for us to use the taxi.

The Taoist temple is actually a temple, a place of worship, but it’s possible for us to visit and look around the place. One think for sure that you will get when visiting this place is the panoramic view of the Cebu city 🙂

Just take your time to explore the place and enjoy the architecture and design of this place of worship, from the pagoda, the ornament, and the mini ‘great wall of China’ 🙂
