On my 4th day in Cebu, I went south of the province. I left the Cebu South Central Terminal around 3:00 AM and was at the quiet town of Samboan around 6:00 AM. Their municipal hall is elevated, they have a nice museum and the church is so beautiful. They also have a nice park with overlooking view of the sea. Samboan Church is one of the most beautiful churches I’ve seen in this province.
