#1. Giant Christmas trees

The Giant Christmas tree by M. Lhuillier in Fuente Osmena has always been a popular symbol for the holidays. Every year, people marvel at the sight of the tallest Christmas tree display in the city, which changes its design. But Fuente Osmena circle isn’t the only place you can find a grand Christmas tree display. Malls in Cebu are also a great place to find those displays. They’re exquisite, colorful – perfect subjects for your photos.

#2. Ice skating in SM Seaside

The ice skating rink is one of the giant mall’s exciting features that’s perfect for everyone, especially children. Not a seasoned skater? No problem! You can rent a polar bear to help you with your balance.

#3. Symphony of Lights in Ayala

Ayala Center Cebu is definitely the most magical place to be. The terraces area of the mall offers a spectacular view of Christmas lights that dance to the music. While having your dinner at one of the restaurants that line the area, you can enjoy the glaring lights.

#4. Eat, eat, eat!

There are so many places to eat in Cebu but feasting is made more fun during the holidays. There’s just something beautiful about eating while hearing Christmas songs everywhere and seeing bright Christmas lights twinkling.  Sugbo Mercado is a great place to find different kinds of delightful dishes at such affordable prices. It is located at the Garden Bloc IT Park Cebu. There’s also The Market by Sugbo Mercado in Mandaue.

#5. Kasadya SRP
