Cebu Taoist Temple in Lahug

Cebu Taoist Temple in Beverly Hills, Lahug is a worship place for devotees who follow the teachings of Lao Zi, a Chinese philosopher. The temple was constructed by Chinese groups sometime in the 70’s, at an elevation of approximately 300 meters with a blueprint of the stairs copying the architecture of The Great Wall of China. During Wednesdays and Sundays, worshippers climb the 81 steps of the Taoist Temple, which represent the 81 chapters of the Taoism scriptures. As the Cebu Taoist Temple is a bit far from the other touristy places like Magellan’s Cross and the Basilica del Sto. Nino, I suggest it to be part of a side trip. Yet it’s one of the best beautiful temples I visited in the country so far.

Lake Danao Park: Kayaking in Camotes

Kayaking in Camotes is the best part of Lake Danao.

Lake Danao Park is one of the gateway parks in Camotes to seeing the biggest lake in the island which is Lake Danao. In this park you will feel the ambiance of a nature within the range of a water body bordered with tree-covered hills and mountains. It is a place where lost people can go to find inner peace and resurrect their souls. In Lake Danao you can go kayaking in Camotes, ride a “sakanaw” or just do your best jump shot with a picturesque backdrop. When you go to Camotes in Cebu province, don’t forget to see and enjoy what Lake Danao Park offers.

Camotes Islands: Nature and More

Consuelo Pier in Pacijan Island of Camotes Islands

Camotes Islands are a group of islands full of mysteries. I felt it when I was there, from the time I landed on the pier of Consuelo in Camotes Island (it’s Pacijan Island and Poro but they were already interconnected and looks like just one island so I call it Camotes Island, the island with shape like the number 8), the simplicity and serenity of the island welcomes you. The island itself is a land of forests and farm, and by the time we went to ride a motorcycle and tour around the island, I saw a lot of mangrove trees. Nature is Camotes indeed.

Ferry from Cebu to Camotes

Jomalia shipping ferry passengers during our trip to Camotes Island

One needs to ride a slow ferry (not a fast craft) to Camotes from Cebu. The ferry ride was approximately two hours but if there is only a bridge that connects mainland Cebu to Camotes Island then it would not even take you an hour to reach the island. And for two hours I spent time seeing seas and sniffing the salty air blowing through the sea craft.

Camotes Island Tours (Tips and Guide)

Clear turqouise waters will welcome you upon getting nearer to the Camotes Island in Central Philippines. (Consuelo wharf, Pacijan Island of Camotes Islands)

Camotes Islands (or Camotes Group of Islands) are islands located somewhere in the middle of bigger islands of Cebu, Bohol and Leyte. Camotes is composed of four different islands namely Poro, Pacijan, Tudela and Tulang. The different municipalities are Poro, Tudela, San Francisco (the town center) and Pilar. Only the town of Pilar in Ponson Island needs another ferry ride once you get to Consuelo port from the wharf in Danao City. Now Camotes Islands slowly emerge as another tourist hub in Central Philippines because of its simple beauty and amazing nature wonders like Lake Danao Park, Timubo Cave and their white sand beaches. Plus a community of friendly people.
