A mini escape from the city. Dalaguete is one of the town in the province of Cebu. It is located in the south of Cebu. The cold climate prevails on some barangays in Dalaguete namely Mantalongon and Maloray. The transport on their town is mainly motorcycle,tricycle and “potpot”or three-wheeled bikes.
I always wanted to go to the so called “Little Baguio” in Cebu. It had that name because boy it was so cold. Even on a sunny day, the wind blew cold air. I did research the place before going. It was plan way ahead of time. Even though I did some researched, I did not expect the coldness to be exactly the same as in Baguio. For reals!
