Travel Ta Bai Went To Cebu For The Sinulog Festival 2012

Sinulog Festival 2012

It’s been awhile since we visited Cebu City. We travel to Cebu to discover some beautiful places which we did not explore yet and off course hunt the best local foods in town. This time we visited Cebu City for the Sinulog Festival 2012. This is our first travel this year together with my partner and her family; this is one of my favourite travels so far, why? because we made our decision 1 week before to attend the Sinulog Festival 2012 without any plans and itinerary on where to go.:-)

I think the campaign of the tourism and to promote the Philippines “It’s more fun in the Philippines” was really effective because during the Sinulog Festival it was attended by almost 3 Million devoted including the local and tourists which this Sinulog Festival of Cebu City is one of the most awaited celebrations every year.

Did you know about Sinulog Festival? Here’s some trivia..:-)

The word Sinulog comes from the Cebuano adverb sulog which roughly means “like water current movement;” it describes the forward-backward movement of the Sinulog dance. The dance consists of two steps forward and one step backward, done to the sound of drums.

This festival is one of the most colourful in the Philippines, because of its famous the Sinulog become commercialized to attract tourists around the globe. The Cebu Sinulog Festival is held every third week of January in Cebu City Sports Complex and the celebration will last for 9 days, culminating with a grand parade. Prior to the main event, a fluvial procession is organized. Before sunrise the Sto. Niño is carried on a boat crossing from Mandaue to Cebu City.

Joining Sinulog festival will not be completed if you don’t visit the Sto. Niño Church in Colon.
