  • It is more spacious than before and cleaner at the same time. Wide parking area at the back. I could give 5 stars if the entire place will be repainted for much cleaner, fresher and newer look.
  • a lot of delicacies to buy but when you go out you smells like dried fish
  • The dried fish market. You can haggle for price. One can also find produce and meat here. On the side streets, aluminum and other trade products (water tanks, buckets, kitchen sinks, shallow wash basins, siopao steamers, et al) can be bought at a fair price.
  • Your go to place in Cebu for all your cheap and delicious dried fish items.
  • This place is known for dried fish and squid which are of good quality especially if caught from Bantayan. However the prices of the products have gone terribly unaffordable that they are charging an average of P1000 per kilo. This beats the prices of fresh salmon imported from Scandinavia. Even the dried mangos are P95 per 100g. You'll also have the bonus of being pressured by street sellers to buy overpriced fruits eg P150 for 2 pomelos which is ridiculous and also guilt tripping you if you don't buy saying they haven't eaten yet and need the sale. I suggest not to visit here and stop supporting abusive selling practices.

Where to stay in Cebu City

The most popular place to stay in Cebu City remains uptown, particularly around the university district near Junquera Street station. Here you'll find a good range of hotels, hostels, and guesthouses of varying quality, but with a well-established base level representing value for money. Further north, look along Dalan Osmena to find a good number of standard and luxury hotels located north and south of the roundabout. The downtown area has more closely knitted streets, with just a few guesthouses located along primarily residential roads.
