Colon Street: Philippines’ Oldest Calle in Cebu

The obelisk marker at Colon Street in Cebu signifies its historical root as the oldest street established in the Philippines.

Colon Street is said to be the oldest street established in the Philippines. It was rooted back to the plans by Miguel Lopez de Legazpi who arrived in the Philippines in 1565, and was named after Christopher Columbus. Now, Colon Street in the heart of Cebu City in Cebu is a busy downtown street lining up stalls, stores, boutiques, business shops, offices, cafes and a lot more.

Travel to Cebu and never forget Magellan's Cross in your own Cebu tours.

Cebu City is well within the bountiful island of Cebu in Central Philippines (or Visayas region). It is the oldest city in the Philippines with some of the oldest landmarks and ancestral houses. Cebu City is an ideal destination for a heritage tour, but it’s not limited to its old landmark domains. Cebu tours may also include nature adventures, adrenalin rush adventures and underwater escapades.

And for that, I have here some simple reminders and things you may consider before traveling to Cebu and have fun with your Cebu tour.

How to Book a Flight and Prepare for a Plane Trip 101

Book a flight and prepare for your next travel adventure. (Airphil Express plane in photo) 

Last year, it was my dream of getting out of Luzon, probably somewhere else that is a ferry or a plane ride away or a town located outside of the mainland. It happened just last April 2012 and somehow it was successful and fun. Never did I know before about other Philippine culture and way of life, particularly the food, and I must say you have to travel all the other 7000 islands of the Philippines to see the difference in culture and travel experiences. And before you can actually do it, I want to share to you simple tips and things to remember if you want to book a flight to the Philippines and prepare for a plane trip for your next travel adventure.

Tam-Awan Village: Baguio Culture and Art

Artwork like this one is displayed inside Tam-Awan Village, plus there are huts that define the Baguio culture.

Baguio culture and art fused together is what Tam-Awan Village is known for. Tam-Awan means “viewpoint”, a “viewdeck” or “tanawan” in Tagalog. That is because the “village” itself has its own peak where one can see a sky of horizon and a blast of sunset, facing the seas of La Union. Well I didn’t actually see the sunset that was referred to here because it was foggy that time when we visited the place. Tam-Awan Village is an art gallery and cultural museum. It features the native huts typical to the different towns in the Cordillera region. They brought the culture, bundled it and made it into a tourist destination. Tam-awan Village is a part of the jigsaw puzzle called Baguio.

Philippine Military Academy (PMA): Baguio Premier School

Philippine Military Academy (PMA) is a premier military school in the Philippines where the next Armed Forces of the Philippines officers were honed. Philippine Military Academy is a training school established back in 1936, and is located in Baguio City. It was said to be rooted from a military school established in Malolos, Bulacan in 1898 (Academia Militar) by Emilio Aguinaldo. It was modeled then after the United States Military Academy with the officers from the Philippine Scout. After the world war, it was reopened in 1947 at Camp Allen in Baguio but because of the rising number of trainees and need for a wider ground it was moved to its present location in Loakan, Baguio City.
