Day 12: Dumaguete – Cebu

We stayed at the Vintage Inn in Dumaguete, had a fest at Chow King, and the next morning sifting around the boulevard eating copious amounts of food. With its European restaurants and tourists Dumaguete had a much more cosmopolitan feel compared to the other towns and cities we had visited.

Looking inland as the ferry departs Dumaguete. These volcanic hills reach about 1800m in height.

It was after dark by the time 4 hour ferry trip arrived at Cebu's port. We rode a short way into town and found ourselves a pretty tidy downtown hotel room for the night.

8 sec exposure of downtown Cebu from our hotel window. With only one night in Cebu we had to make the most of it, so we taxied off to a cool sounding restaurant for dinner, checked out the street market, and found ourselves a full-body massage for about NZ$8 each!

Welcome to VeloTour

This blog's about a three week cycle touring trip in the Philippines in July 2008. Check out the introduction.

I've created the blog to be a day-by-day account, but it's all based around the photos - so don't worry - we won't bore you with loads of text ... just pages of photos instead. Blogs show the most recent post first - so if it's easier, use the menu below to navigate.
