Cebu Travel - Sinulog


When you travel to the Philippines, don't forget to travel Cebu. Its not just the place that will make your visit memorable, but also all the events this small island has to offer. I'm not trying to be your travel guide but I can't help it, let me start with Sinulog in Cebu (usually held every 3rd week of January).


Saturday before Sinulog, don't miss checking out local bars to feel the pre-sinulog spirit.

You should also check out major shopping malls for shopping  (lol) for some fancy fireworks display.

And here's my two cents on your next Sinulog swing:

(My feeling-expert-tips)

1.) Wear comfortable clothing.
2.) Bring a hankie or a hand towel (to wipe your sweat since there's a lot of walking involve)
3.) A sling bag enough to hold basic stuff (bottled water, umbrella, cellphone, wallet, extra shirt, etc.)
4.) To avoid the crowd (though there will be a lot of people everywhere). Look for alternative routes avoiding the main road where the festivity is happening.
5.) Don't be uptight (loosen up and hold your temper). Don't get mad if people may step on your feet or blocks your view, that's expected when there are more than 4 million people along with you during Sinulog.
6.) Do not wear slippers (at least for me), to avoid dirt on your feet, hurting your feet from walking or people stepping on you.
7.) Get enough sleep before the event. You'll get tired from walking and partying
8.) As much as possible do not bring a car. It'll be hard for you to find a parking spot, or people might stain on it. 
9.) Enjoy and party like an animal.
