The Challenge: Explore Cebu in 2 days
Sounds tough but, having regular jobs, my friends and I had to make do with a quick weekend escapade to the Queen City of the South as part of our spur-of-the-moment bonding adventures.
So what can you do in Cebu when you only have a couple of days to spend?

In between itineraries, one of us got to buy Rico’s Lechon and the rest of us bought a couple more kilos in Carcar Public Market where lechons were sold for as low as P280 per kilo. It was heaven!
We also got to snatch a few packs of dried fish (Danggit) in Taboan Public Market on our way back to our hotel.
Looking back, I still crave for the authentic Italian pizza and Carcar’s lechon. If it were for these two alone, I can’t wait to go back! And for sure I will.
