Has anybody tried renting a van to Oslob? Better po ba than commuting i mean mahirap ba sumakay sa bus and yung mga bababaan po?

^In going to Oslob, hindi mahirap sumakay kasi marami naman bus sa South Terminal pero in going back to the city dapat nakaabang na kayo ng bus sa daan on an earlier time kasi chambahan lang ang makasakay ng bus na maluwag pa.  Para hindi kayo maligaw you can tell the konduktor na ibaba lang kayo sa whale watching area, may signboard namang makikita at nasa highway lang siya.

^no need for reservations, sis. Just find out from receptionist which elevator to take to Sky Adventure and show them your tickets/vouchers.

your welcome. i got mine sa ensogo. it was part of the package. we stayed there pero di ko rin naman nagamit yung sky adventure and pinamigay ko lang. pero doon mismo sa crown regency, they sell separate tickets for the rides, the 4d show or the walk.

just got back from cebu... we stayed at crown regency... enjoy kami ng family ko! ang daming magagawa within the hotel... hindi na kailangan lumabas. Kung kakain naman, walking distance lang sa casa verde and robinson's malls (2 malls)... malapit din sa jollibee at mcdo para sa kids. sulit yung stay namin, kahit di na kami nag sky adventure. May mga animals din na pwedeng pagpapicture-an na sobrang kinatuwa ng anak ko. We will definitely going back :-)

Hotel Stella is really, really good for a budget hotel. Nice location pa.

Resto recommendation:

STK - excellent, fresh & cheap seafood. Nights can get busy so you might have to wait for a table.

Ngayon na lang ulit nakapag GT :) sa wakas after 4 years nakabalik ulit ng Cebu...

we stayed at Hotel Stella , this time... ok naman ang pension house, bagong bago pa... ang kinuha namen yung Standard Room kasi the next day maaga yung byahe namen ppunta ng Bohol, hndi na ren naman makakapag breakfast kaya ok na den... the room is nice, no complains: ok ang bed, malinis/mabango ang bed sheets, flat screen and tv and ok den ang CR... ang problema lang namen is the location lalo na may kasama kameng bata, malayo siya sa Fuente Circle, kung walking...

mas maganda pa den yung pag labas mo malapit kana sa lahat, nung nag stay kame sa Apple Tree Suites ;) ilan mins of walking lang andun na yung mga kainan like Mcdo, KFC etc. may malapit na Mercury Drug, malapit den ang Robinsons Mall, lapit lang mga spa's, ilan mins lang ang Crown Regency and also mas madali mag commute, kasi andun na yung multicab and taxi... kaya ang nangyari samen sa Hotel Stella, tuwing labas taxi2x.. sinubukan namen mag lakad from Crown to Hotel Stella, haggardness hehe... pero kung within the location lang sana ng fuente mas easier... I still recommend Apple Tree Suites, accomodation and location wise  ;) ...

we ate at Zubuchon , sabi ko hndi ko palalagpasin ito pag nag punta ako ng Cebu ulit kasi na feature siya ni Anthony Bourdain sa TLC show: No Reservations, as:  "The Best Pig Ever" ... the food really taste good ;)

* Five Pork Rice: P220.00 (good for 2-3pax)
* Zubuchon 1/2kg: P260.00
* Slow Cooked Adobo: P250.00
* Budbud Kabug: P50.00
* Chicharon: P120.00

for me sa Five Pork Rice and Slow Cooked Adobo solb na ako... regarding sa lechon, honestly ok den ang lasa, but my vote still goes with CNT ;) mas type ko yung may sawsawan.. ang di makalimutan dito ni hubby yung Kalamansi Juice nila, masarap pag hot.. sayang yung specialty na drink nila wala yung Kamias...

sis presyosa ligaya ...duon na den mismo sis sa Crown yung bilihan ng ticket, we got the package na P750.00/pax na may ride na edge coaster and sky walk ... ang start ng ride nila is 2pm, for me mas ok gawin sa gabi yung Edge Coaster, mas lesser yung kaba kasi gabi hehe ;D and maganda yung lights.. nakakatuwa yung experience kasi na conquer ko yung fear ko of heights haha, wala kameng ginawa kundi tumawa ng tumawa sa kaba...

and reminders pala dun sa may kasamang mga kids , syempre tayong mga parents for the mean time pwede naten iwan ang mga kids naten sa playroom area (meron naman dun).. dont forget na dalhan sila ng long sleeves na top or pwede na den jacket kasi hndi pwedeng hndi long sleeves ang damit nila, kundi mapapabili kayo nung damit na tinitinda nila na cost around P200+ and also bring socks sa mga kids ...

for the 2 rides, mga 1hr den ang itatagal... depende pa kung gaano kadame ang tao nakapila, kasi by batch sa sky walk...
