Wandering tableau: Best Locations to capture Cebu at Night

Although if you get to look a little closer, the city lights can be a another shimmering sparkle that we can be in awe. Β With Cebu’s growing structures, we can get the best city lights there is if we just pick the right location.

Cebu Yacht Club. F. Martir St., Lapu-lapu city

Marcelo Fernan New Bridge

Overlooking Cansaga Bay Bridge.

    Tall buildings and bridges will always be great choices. I would choose a place that is not too bright and has a good place to set up a tripod. Let’s have a night photoshoot some time.

    My boyfriend and I decided to travel at least twice a year : international and local. The time that I was booking, Cebu Pacific has a promo going to Cebu. We grabbed the chance and decided to visit Cebu on my birthday. I am not yet sure where to go in Cebu. I haven’t been there even once. I have heard that Busay is a great destination. I am actually considering it in our itinerary. πŸ™‚

    I usually love the mountains when it comes to great overlooking views of the city at night. I visited Tops last weekend after maybe around 20 years LOL. Gosh it was beautiful and it wasn’t dark yet. I think I should probably buy myself a new pair of glasses so I can appreciate the view even more.

    One of my favorite sights too just breathe in are cityscapes during nighttime where it’s just lit by city lights. Such amazing shots! Good thing you have a pretty great camera to capture those views! πŸ™‚

    For me, the best place to Cebu is going to Tops in Busay. Where you can see the citylights. But you’ve got wonderful shots πŸ™‚

    Since I love the mountains a lot, I love seeing Cebu City on the nearby mountains. The city view is stunning at Mount Babag and also at Chalet Hills. There’s a viewing spot also somewhere in Busay going to Chalet Hills, it’s just along the road, you can just stop there and enjoy the city lights.

    Tops is such a majestic place. Basta nindot ang camera nga maka-capture sa beauty sa Cebu City, I’d go with Tops all the time!

    If you like this kind of places to wander at night; then I’m sure you will love Stockholm. When the sun goes down here, it’s the most beautiful sky ever. So bright and sometimes completely pink and orange. The boats in the haven here are fabulous and when it’s dark now, everyone has so many lights at night and it’s so cosy. When you’re over in Stockholm, give me a shout!

    I used to have a favorite spot in the city when I was a kid. Somewhere in Escario. But then the developments arrived and eventually, I can’t deal the traffic and jam-packed place anymore. ???? I’m still looking for a new favorite spot in the city

    Your photos are great. I never find it easy to take good pictures at night. The city lights are lovely, but I also like to get away from all artificial light, right out in the country, and look at the stars. Only then do we see just how many stars there are and how much of the night sky the city lights are masking.

    I have been going in and out of Cebu. Most probably, the thing I haven’t visited that much is the Busay part. I’ll surely include it on my itinerary if I’ll get back and have enough time. For now, I’ll just list down the ones I missed going there. hehehhe I love your shots, by the way.

    I love going to the baywalk just near my house. πŸ™‚ I haven’t been to the places you listed.. Except Galleria of course and Waterfront. Haha. But I’d love to go to that bridge and take some night shots. I haven’t even gone to Tops yet, haha. Sucks I know. Lol..

    Of course the easiest answer would be Busay, its the most common anyway. Haha and sadly, thats the only place I’ve been to watch the city lights. And oh Sirao peak diay sad. Haha
