Exploring Northwest of Cebu : Complete Guide From Toledo City To San Remigio

by - 3:09 AM

When in Cebu, Tourists love to visit the Southern part of the island such as Oslob for Whale Shark watching, Lambug Beach of Badian, or nice beaches in Moalboal. Sometimes, we love chasing waterfalls at Dao or Tumalog Falls and most of the time at Kawasan Falls. Or directly trip to Bantayan Island of the North. But less do we know that there are a lot of attractions in the Northwestern part of Cebu. Together with my friends and blogger buddy, Geezelle of Geemiz.com , we challenged ourselves to a 3-day road trip in Northwestern Cebu starting from Toledo City up to municipality of San Remigio. You won't believe what we discovered!
