Kings Of The Hill

Cebu is blessed with very nice beaches, flatlands big enough to accommodate 5 or 6 booming cities, and pristine hills and mountains which give us a commanding view of the metropolis.

One of the most popular highland districts in the city is the Nivel Hills. Nivel Hills is a system of almost-connecting hills in the Lahug-Busay area. All vehicles headed for Busay, Cantipla, Manunggal, and Balamban pass through these hills from Lahug. The Nivel Hills are in close proximinity to PC Hills, Betania Hills and the gated posh community in Beverly Hills.

A few of the very popular establishments on these hills are the Marco Polo Hotel – previously Cebu Plaza Hotel, the showrooms of Honda and Ford, Mr. A and Mr. B., a few factories, restaurants, and bars.

This is the back part of the  Marco Polo Hotel.

  1. Hi Ley!!!!!
    How are you, wow is such alot’s of Properties Now!!!!!!! Believed aku sa Cebu,
    Dako na jud ang kausaban, Pero Unta dili nila Put-lon ang mga Trees tungod
    kay mao kana ang hatag ug ka bugnaw ug Hangin sa atong lugar,
    Murag abroad na jud – ahh ahhh nindota naba, international jud, oy !!!! go! go! go! Cebu,
    I love Cebu, I miss Cebu,

  2. Cebu spells progress.
    These photos bring back a lot of good memories
    as a child growing up in Lahug, those were the
    good old days.
    Mabuhay Cebu!!!! I love Cebu!!!!

  3. Wow, I almost don’t recognize the city of my birth anymore. Must be great to live in City Lights Garden and gaze at that view first thing when you wake up, and last thing before you go to bed.

    By the way, the Hilton building in Mactan looks incongruous. It would look nice in the city itself but not where they built it.

  4. pagkanindot sa cebu!

    ley, since your abreast w/almost all the activities in Cebu, is there anyway you can find out if there’s any boxing match scheduled in Cebu between
    Oct 30-Nov 12, pls. let me know ….thanks

  5. Hello Mr. Leylander! nindota nimog mga shots sa cebu wui, aerial man puro… asa ka nagpatong or naglupad para ani nila? Love your blog!!! proud ko kay naay nagpromote sa Cebu thru blogging, i’ll add you to my blogroll nya ha? I’ll keep coming back for more na… good job on the site! =)

  6. Leyland,
    Winter is coming and we need pictures like this.
    Sugbuanon in winterbound places are very grateful. Please keep them coming.
    I appreciate you

  7. Hello Ley,

    I was scrolling down through the pictures and I read, “The old Casino FIlipino. This will become a multimillion discotheque. Will open in December.” Do you mean THIS December?!

  8. I stumble on your blog last year and you showed a bus enroute to Tuburan with a lot of sticker inside. It was also the thing that you missed your shot at Sangi Asturias due to slow moving bus. If you do remember that I commented what you should do. Anyway, I did left some unwanting words on you. I did admit that my comment was kind of overboard. Honestly, since your nice pics posted had grown, I do admire your passion on what you do….I’ll give you 5STAR.

    A lot of reasons that I encourage you to add a “DONATION BUTTON”
    1. It is not easy to go and take a good shot and post it in this site in all terms, TIME, MONEY,…effort.
    2. You satisfy a lot of OFW around the world who miss our place, Cebu.
    3. Everytime they see your blog, it encourage them to enclude it on theyre trip for vacation. Because they already had an idea what a beautiful place it is to go and explore.
    4. Lastly, YOU DESERVE IT! Good job, 4years back then, I really wish I could find a site where I can see/visit thru vision without travelling due to some circustances.

    I hope one of these days, your site will be one of the link to all Hotels, Beaches and to other fun places. And you may gain an extra income thru that by linking them to you by purchasing a reservation. Im been in abroad for 11 years now..Im one of the people you satisfy our hunger from our place. Believe me, there are millions of us and I know how it feels. What is your shoe size…just one pair for you…dont have that much money though. But it is one way of appreciating your work. Thank You.

  9. i remember the first time i drop in cebu…really excited ako kasi maganda and napakalinis ng lugar.the people were very warmed..i wish i can go back again…
