Ching Hai is Making Waves in Cebu

On August 15, 2022, Jpark Island Resort and Waterpark Mactan Cebu’s opened the doors of its Chinese restaurant, Ching Hai. Its name literally translates to “Blue Ocean”, and was aptly chosen as the restaurant is located within the water park. “Ching” which means blue, represents the wood element in Chinese culture, depicting growth and optimism. “Hai” means ocean, its vastness, and endless possibility of teasing your palates from mild and fresh to well-seasoned and robust taste to bring out the natural flavors of the dish.
