Quick Escape in Balamban

This past Saturday, I went to Balamban Cebu with my college friends to have a quick escape from the bustling city of Cebu that I see everyday. The commute was quite easy; you just ride one of those V-hires bound for Balamban in Ayala Center Cebu terminal. The fare is a bit costly (P120 for an hour ride) but I understood why since the zigzag road to the town is not easy to drive. We planned to visit four spots in the area which are a walk away from each other; Florentino's Little Tagaytay of Cebu, Island in the Sky, Adventure Café, and Buwakan ni Alejandra.

We first dropped by Florentino's. The views here are definitely breathtaking. You can see the beautiful green mountains and afar is the blue sparkling sea. Here are some photos in Florentino's:

Next stop was Island in the Sky where we walked by a hanging bridge and rode the best cable car ever. 😂

Here are some photos:

Then we had our lunch in Adventure Café. Some of my friends did the zipline here. I didn't do the zipline since I've done it here years ago.

Last stop was Buwakan ni Alejandra (translates as Flower Garden of Alejandra) where I had fun taking photos of different flowers and made me forgot to take videos urgh.

Anyway, here are some of my photos in the flower garden:

This was such a great day. The weather was perfect, no rain and not too hot. I recommend visiting Balamban as an alternative of escaping from city life even for just the day. Until my next random adventure! :)
