In time for World Tourism Month, Cebu City Tourism recently launched Cebu City Highlands Adventure. Get to buy fresh produce, plants and artisan products amassed from Cebu City’s mountain barangays during the Tabo sa Bukid; and for the adventurers, go ahead and join an exciting highland jaunt!
Cebu City Tourism rounded up the growers and producers along Canada Drive (just across Ayala Heights) on all weekends (Saturdays and Sundays) of September for #TaboSaBukid. So get your grocery bags ready for Tabo sa Bukid‘s starting this weekend, September 5 and 6. Local harvests include sweet corn, evergreen avocados, bananas, sweet potatoes, ampalaya, tomatoes, lettuce and many other fresh produce- all made available during the fair at low prices. And have you tried the highlands lechon yet? We were told it’s going to be available during the weekend market too. 😉
Cebu City is 80% upland, composed of 31 highland baranggays -14 in the south and 17 in the north of the city; the highlands take pride on the fresh produce and flowers that supplies the metro with high-grade farm products and artisan goods. It came as a surprise that Cebu City highlands still have many secret spots for adventure seekers.
Cebu City Highlands Tours, organized by Cebu City Tourism Office, offer fun adventure to the city’s hilly lands’ less known adventure spots. Two of the featured Cebu City Highlands Tour attractions are Bombahanan Cave and Guining Falls , both rarely explored sites in Cebu City uplands.
Waterfall + Betty’s Garden Package
Guining Falls in Barangay Tabunan/Tabonan holds out a small cold dipping pool at the end of the 25-minute trek from the town hall.
Next stop for the tour is Betty’s Garden in Barangay Cantipla. The six-hectare property faithfully grows organic produce and is devoted to safeguarding indigenous wildflowers.
Caving Package + Vegetable Farm Pick &Pay
The itinerary for this tour includes caving in Bombahanan Cave in Barangay Sudlos Dos and Satuhan Cave in barangay Sudlon Uno, plus a visit at a pick and pay vegetable farm.
