I’ve seen many wonderful photos of Jones Avenue. However, I don’t have any idea how the photographers were able to get such awesome aerial shots. I mean, I have seen amateur shots and they too, were taken from some place really high with a really good view of the city. I’m sure the photographers didn’t get on helicopters or something. LOL. Recently, I discovered that GV Tower Hotel, a relatively new hotel beside the University of Cebu downtown, has a restaurant on the 7th floor. So I wasted no time and went there yesterday to find out if I could take a good shot of Jones Avenue.

Jones Avenue has three ‘skywalks’. Some people say the avenue would’ve looked much better without those walkways. What do you think?
