Use the information below as a guide only.
It will be helpful in getting you started.
I personally visit Philippines as much as possible, and then update the info below. Otherwise updates are based on proven reliable sources.
Introduction to Cebu sex Nightlife:
Some part company with Cebu when it comes to its nightlife activities. It's certainly no Angeles City with full on, wall to wall Go-Go's/Show Places. And its not a Manila with GoGo's, Freelance joints, and whorehouses in abundance, either.
People most probably would not refer to Cebu as the' Pearl of the South' if it was blatantly a red light district as say Angeles is. Even so, there is adequate pussy available, even though it is spread out, all over the place. Fortunately taxi drivers are pleasant and trips from one place to another are cheap compared with Manila and Angeles (trikes).
Overall, my description of Cebu City would be : It's spread out a bit, slow paced and nice. Angeles is compact, fast paced and sexy. Manila, spread out, fast and sex opportunities everywhere you go.
You will note some places listed below are currently closed. Left them on website for time being as they might re-open in the future.
Bear in mind the average monthly salary in Cebu is around Pesos 5000/8000. So Pesos 1, 500 is more than enough for an all night encounter. Normally Cebu Go-Go bars make you pay a Bar Fine of around P2000/2500, which is an all up fee. Includes bars cut and girls cut (half). No more to pay. Next morning you can tip the girl P500 , or more , if you like, but this is not obligatory. Casa's/Whorehouses are P3000 and up. So before you give the girls the equivalent of one weeks wages or more, make sure you have got something of value. Some Go-Go Girls will meet you during the day for P1000 Short Time. Only thing is, don't let Mama-san find out, or the girl is in real trouble.
Overview : Subjective personal opinion only ...

Go-Go Sex Bars - Hookers, Escorts ... whatever you like to call them :
As you know by now, not an abundance of GoGo's in Cebu City. Neither Angeles or Manila can be beaten in that respect. Thus you can have a break of sorts from your gogo 'meat inspectors' duties when in Cebu City. But not totally, there are some GoGo's as listed further on.
Same precautions, as with other go-go's, whether it be Angeles or Patpong (Thailand) or wherever. And don't think just because Cebu is laid back, and provincially friendly, that all is well with your bar chits.
So, here are the main Go-Go Bars, in no set order.
Note : In Cebu City you pay bar fine and girls tip up front at the bar. Consequently sometimes Cebu girls have a bit of an attitude after getting in the room, cause they have got all the money up front already, apart from a possible additional tip the next morning. In Cebu a tip next morning is dependent on whether you think she is worth more than you have already paid back at the bar, the night before. If so, give them P200/500 tip next morning.
Average Prices - Your Drink .. P80/90 ; Ladies Drinks, P150/200 , depending on where you are; Bar Fine - P2500/3000 , for LT, which includes everything, and paid before you get out the door, and so you have to make clear what you are paying for, eg Long Time (LT) or Short Time, with both the girl and the mamasan together, before you leave the bar, to avoid 'misunderstandings' later on. Update : Bar fine is currently paid to the girl , outside the bar. Angeles City has a much much bigger selection of girls, much bigger and P1500/1800, and up to P3000 bar fines in some cases ... everything included. Angeles City for GoGo Bar/Dance Show Place action, not Cebu City. Read Angeles page , especially re Bar Raids (Cebu has them sometimes too).
Paying up front has its dangers of course. The girl knows she has got the money already and thus her performance might be lacking. Pays to spend some time with the girl beforehand back at bar and check her out. Cebu has a not so great reputation for girls doing a runner after only one shot. Doesn't happen every time, but can happen. If she thinks your a newbie she might try it (runner).

Suggest you start at the Iglesia Ni Cristo (Church) GoGo area in Gen Maxillom Ave (aka Mango Ave) :
To get there just say "Vikings Bar Mango Ave" to taxi driver.
There is a standout Church with tall spires called, 'Iglesia Ni Cristo' in Gen Maxillon Ave (aka Mango Ave). If you were standing on the same side as the Church and look across the road you will find in following order (can change without notice) : Left to right ... Viking Mango, BG's, Eric the Red, Planet X, and finally "Sisters". Now, standing on Viking side of the road and looking across to the other side, you will find, left to right : Jaberwocky (formerly called Pussycats), Dimples (currently ... forget , no good) , Love City and Papillon.
NOTE : These kinds of places fall in an out of favour, on a regular basis. Suggest you pop your head inside the door and have a quick peep. Only step inside and buy a drink if you like what you see. Think your more likely to like the bars on the Vikings side of the road.
Vikings aka Midnight Sun Bar for hookers 'n lookers :
Located in Mango Ave, On the opposite side of the Iglesia Ni Cristo Church. Reports about this place vary a lot. One thing is consistent there are usually some 'honeys' here. Some say back home in the hotel room the girls are not value. That would not surprise me, knowing who is controlling the business. Quite often experienced punters go there perv on the bodies and lively atmosphere but do not bar fine. Have a look and see what you think. Possibly the better looking bodies reside here, day in day out. Very subjective though, your honey might be waiting for you elsewhere.
Prices, see above 'Average Prices'. Waitresses in Vikings BarFine for P3000, nothing less. Other girls standard price (see above) Before placing money down make sure it is for all night. Confirm this with Mama-san in presence of girl, if possible. Ladies Drinks are P150/200 nowadays. Make sure a girl does not order a 'double' (P300/400). Watch your chits/bills and make sure there are no 'misunderstandings' before you bar fine the girl. Same applies to all other GoGo's listed here.
Overall, I suspect this is now rated as one of the better GoGo Bars in town for a drink and perv. For take out and all night performance, that could be a different matter. Cebu gogo girls can be 'cheats' (do runners after 1 pop). But at same time, I have also heard good reports about Vikings girls performance, suppose it depends on how you go about it, or if your "hansum" or not : )
If she stays all night, you know your hansum : )
BG Bikini Bar, also for Hookers (next to Viking Mango Bar .. Vikings) :
BG Bikini Bar next to Vikings : Supposedly newer girls, same owner. Waitresses in BG Bikini BarFine for P3000, nothing less. Other girls standard price (see above 'average prices') One should check both of these out, even if only for a few mins. Check them out before any other bars. Good gogo bars not easy to find in Cebu City. Angeles City for that : )
Next to BG is "Eric the Red" GoGo bar. Think owned by Vikings owner.... Waitresses in Erik the Red, BarFine for P3000, nothing less. Other girls standard price (see above 'average prices')
"Planet X" Bar (formerly Hot Rod Bar). Large bar. New owner etc. Worth a 1 beer survey at least. You might like it.
Then "Sisters" GoGo Bar, next to Planet X Bar. Receiving negative publicity about it. Girls pushy for LD's (Ladies Drinks). Even so, worth a peep in the door, you never know, negative info might not be correct etc : )
Check this side of Mango Ave out first. It's the happening side. Start with Vikings, then head towards "Sisters" buying one drink in each, then backtrack to the one you like, take a hot hooker, bang her brains out all night : ) PS : They dont have many brains, so that's easy : )
Temptations : Before you step across the road, have a look down to your right and you will see a Caltex gasoline station, turn into that street (Jakosalem) and down on your right is another bar called "Club Temptations"and a little further on "Club Tokyo" , both designed and catering for Koreans/Japanese. Not cheap and girls do not normally go with Caucasian foreigners (whites). for the curiously inclined. Not worth the walk in my opinion : )
Red Lips : Same side of Mango Ave and a little distance away towards Fuente Osmena (Mango Square direction), that is to the left , is another new one called "Red Lips", down the laneway between 'Yellow Cab Pizza' and Vienna Cafe, on Mango Ave. At the end of small alleyway, on left hand side. Rumour has it lots of local officials hang around here = I would avoid, you just might upset them in some way, and end in strife.
Now, back at Viking bar area and on the opposite side of the street to Vikings etc, is of a lower priority. Here they are , from left :
Jaberwocky : Formerly : Club Stars, then, Exotica, then Pussycats , now Jaberwocky : ). Constant change of owners/name is never a good sign : ) Make sure everything clear re prices before you commit yourself. Worth one drink, you never know, your sweetheart might be there waiting for you. Make sure Ladies Drink is a single and not double, at this place : )
Also next door and on the same side of the road as Jaberwocky are : Dimples BF P3000 Update : Unpopular nowadays ; Love City BF4000 and Papillon BF3000. Think you can safely give these places a miss. Can't recall any positive reports ever. Aimed at non European clientele (Asians).
Lone Star Go-Go (pay for play hookers) - Exiting say Jaberwocky , turn left, walk a few short metres, then turn into first street on your left, F. Manalo St, same street as Eddies, aka, Beverlys Boutique Hotel (see Hotel Accom in Basics notes). At end of Manalo there is T junction, turn right into Queens Road. Lone Star is a few short metres down on your left. All up 3/5 mins walking from Club Stars/Mango Ave. Some folks might not like walking down Manalo and walking into Queens Rd, they both look a bit dark and spooky. I have done it, didnt feel terribly comfortable, but nothing happened : )
Enough guys say the girls there are worth checking out. Overall I would say its reasonably popular with the guys. More popular than 'Jabberwocky' for example, but that isnt saying a lot. P2700 all up (Bar Fine and all night Girl). For me, negative vibes in this place. Plus spooky walk too : ) Might be different for you. Update : Heard yet again, another report owner told guy to "Either bar fine or get out". Owner can be aggressive, at times. But same bar is popular with others.
Alternatively, after checking out Cebu's mini GoGo scene (Mango Ave bars), you can (a) walk along what I consider safe Mango Ave (lots of vehicular traffic for example) to Mavericks bar below, a 10/15min casual walk or (b) catch a taxi in Mango Ave (aka, Maxillon ) for around P40/45 to Mavericks Bar. Update : Street robberies, by small time petty thieves, currently occuring on Mango Avenue, in the area of Mango Square (see Mango Square info below too). Suggest catch a taxi nowadays. Also I am not sure Mavericks bar is still in existence. Rumoured to be closing down at time of typing this.
Mavericks Bar and Grill (MBG) :
Formerly called Silver Dollar bar, and now under management of Lone Star bar owner (see info above) as MBG. Taxis might still know it as Silver Dollar Bar.
UPDATE : Before reading below mentioned info , latest info at time of writing ..... MBG is going out of business/closing. Not sure.
UPDATE.2. .... MOVED !
to behind Harrolds Hotel (google it). At Gorordo Ave C/R Rosal St , Lahug (so I am told).
Longest established expat catering go-go bar, with a variety of owners and reputations. In Osmena Blvd, short walking distance (2 mins) from Robinsons Dept Store (Fuente Osmena area). See above MOVED ! .
Cockroaches running around the floor are as old as the bar : ) Close to Crown Regency Hotel in Osmena Blvd. It's in between both those buildings (Robinsons and Crown). MBG is located uptown, so your safe. If a taxi driver doesnt know it (as Silver Dollar Bar), he doesnt know Cebu City. Reportedly starts 11am, you can be sure their best girls are not there then. At MBG, regarded as an early starter, quite sure at 8pm they will have their better girls on deck. But with Mango Bars 9pm start would be closer to the mark. MBG plays around with Bar Fine prices, just as Lone Star does. Expect P1700 all up fee with a modest tip of P200/500 to girl next morning, if service good. Prices might have increased lately. Beer P80 , Ladies Drink P180.
Quality of girls here can vary with ever changing management. But as the oldest running gogo in Cebu, despite numerous owners and names, worth a peek in the door, at least. Watch your chit/bill here and every other place.
Sapphire Bar : in F Ramos St , street behind and running parallel with Mavericks. Formerly known as Cobra bar. Nothing special.
Down Town Mini Go Go sex Scene :
Filipino/Native Go-Go Bars are different to the expat orientated ones cause they usually have a small regular stage and the guys sit at 'kitchen' tables perving on the average or below average (eg fat) looking babes. If your extremely lucky you might run into a 'new' girl with a nice body/attitude etc., but mostly you've got 'heavy' troupers who've been doing it for a while. Normally, no pole, or pole dancing as we know it. The chances of trouble from drunk Filipino's is minimal if you behave yourself. Trouble more likely in the streets outside the bar/s.
These dance places are located in the Palaez and Sanciangko Streets area. Start early around 8pm at the Palaez/Sanciangko corner. Pimps will approach you in the streets all night long, just ignore them , they only have manlnourished and sometimes underage girls. Do not trust them with anything looking under 18, could be serious trouble for you (set up). At a guess there are about 10/12 native dives (dance places) in this area. My advice is : be out of the area by taxi (dont walk out) 12 midnight, if on your own. Seedy, sleazy, but an experience of sorts : )
'Show' Places for sex with Hookers too :
1. These are normally expensive places and poor value, mostly catering for those with a big spender mentality. You pay for the relative posh (?) atmosphere and expensive dresses the girls are wearing. Good perv spots if you do not get involved in too many expensive Ladies Drinks. Best is not to get involved in Ladies Drinks till you've seen all the girls on offer. Get one you like best at your table, buy one or two Ladies Drinks, then secretly slip your cellphone tag to her for a rendeszvous next day. This suits her, as she is free to be bar fined by some full paying sucker that night, then before she starts work next day she can come and ST with you. You will save unnecessary expenses, and she will make extra money (day light shaggin). Make sure management does not see you slip cell number, which you have pre-printed and on the ready at all times. ST with one of these girls next day would run into P1500, pos P2000 if stunner (unlikely). Do not talk price, bang first and see if she's a star fish, P1000. She's got no come uppance, she's not supposed to be shaggin without her employer getting a cut : )
Dont forget, some of these girls think they are 'movie stars' and thus do not perform very well in bed. All the more reason to road test her without paying an official bar fine fee (P4/6000 ?).
Popular and well known by taxi drivers : Infinity and Arena (Reclamation area). Where you will pay around Pesos200 entrance (see Update below), P300 to P600 for Ladies Drink (LD), P110 or more , your beer. Bar Fines can be around P6000 (all inclusive fee). But girls at these places will expect a substantial tip eg P1000. And even then you can end up with a starfish. Best modus operandi .... 1. one LD's only 2. Slip cell number secretly 3. Daylight shaggin P1500 all up , short time , 1 hr ?
Arena : P200 entrance, P30 service charge each time you pay chit. They get you to sign chit if you do not pay at time of consuming = cheaper than paying the P30 service charge for each and every order/drink. Beer P110 or more , Ladies Drink P300 if Cebu girl, P600 if Manila girl (this can change). Ask beforehand re your choice. Example, could be trick eg "Oh that one is Manila girl" when in fact she is a Cebu girl etc. Also the mama-san might appear and say she gets a LD too (P300). Query it before you order anything. My rating of girls there ? I'd say most of the dancing girls are 7's, some are 8's. The other long dressed , non dancing girls are 6's in the main. No 5's sighted , lol.
GRO told me "can not bar fine girl" ie take girl away. Doubt if thats true. Dont know why she said that. Maybe I am ugly : ) VIP rooms upstairs, at a premium (never asked), where you could grope etc at a price. Doubt very much you can have sex with girl on premises. But there's always exceptions. Offer your phone number and ask her to call next day your hotel, before she starts work for a discount price, maybe P1500 one pop, one hour max at a guess. If me and hot for a girl, I would call at Arena, at least two nights and buy at least two ladies drinks per night, get to know the girl, get her to like you, THEN proposition her re calling at your Hotel. Think a lot of them will not even do that. Some will agree to your face but not call. They are attractive girls (dancers) who would have boyfriends/husband/sponsors in background methinks, and make enough through high Arena salary, tips, LD's etc, ie, do not have to have sex with strangers. If she thinks your keen on her and thus long term possibilities (sponsor, whatever) she might call at your hotel for a price .... say P1500 or more, for one pop.
Before visiting Arena, I used to hear barfines of P6000, maybe GRO said no barfine for me, as plenty of Koreans around and if girl goes with Westerner, eg me, then maybe spoils their image/market. Dont know. Thats why it would be P1500 for one pop (private arrangement), these Arena girls are in actual fact , P3000 kind of girls , going for P6000. That's why. I'd never pay P6000 bar fine. Titillation, decor, surroundings, classy clothing , make them look 8's. Skimpy gear, erotic/fantasy style dance routines etc, plus beer, elevates their price, in some punters mind, lol.
Infinity is small by comparison, but think bar fining is more likely there and for less than Arena (?). Dont go before 10/11pm. I called rather early and place was empty. Classy chicks there, I am told. Not cheap compared to GoGo Bars.
Jaguar : Still closed (by authorities).
2. Ramos St (near Fuente Osmena, roundabout).........
Just down from Robinsons Department Store and Summit Circle Hotel, that is, close to the corner of Mango Ave (Maximillon Ave).
Use to be about 3 bad value Show Places here. Now, I see only one, wrote name down but forgot it. Four/five letter word. On same side of Ramos St as Robinsons, close to a house type restaurant, set back from the road. No one, repeat, no one talks about the place, so you can be sure its hardly worth visiting. High prices for girls you can find elsewhere for less etc. Example, Mango Ave GoGo Bars (info above), J.Ave disco girls (info below).

Freelance Hookers for cheaper sex :
Cebu City is not the greatest place to find freelance ladies. It's not like Thailand in that respect. And its not Manila, which has a much bigger Freelance scene. Cebu's is almost non existent by comparison. Although, you can get lucky sometimes and score a regular girl (not a freelancer/hooker). You have to prowl in a taxi to find the odd p4p one standing on a street corner. Cost you a bit in taxi fares and doubtful you come up with someithing decent, and safe to bring back to your room (theft).
Don't forget ....slip it on dong, slip it on (condom) with foot loose and fancy free, non medically checked Freelancers. A dose, is the least you can expect : )
Disco Action : If I was hunting for a hooker via Disco's, I would give first preference to "J. Ave" then Pump1 (see below). There is not much hooker pick up potential after them.
J. Ave, formerly called : Juliana's ( pick up Hooker Disco)
This is the one, if its Disco and freelance hookers you want !
Warning, get taxi to drop you at front, and pick up taxi at front, do not walk to or from Mango Square because of possibility of street robberies nowadays.
J. Ave Is in Mango Square entertainment area. Set back, on Mango Ave (aka Gen. Maxillon Ave). P100 entrance = first drink. 11pm starts to take off, goes to early hours of the morning. All taxi drivers should know it. Currently the most popular pick up disco in Cebu. Bar area outside door , good place to check talent entering. Thurs Frid Sat are the biggest nights (as at most disco's : ) 1/2am onwards girls working elsewhere front up at J's. Some of them are 'lookers' from GoGo Bars and maybe even places like, Arena, Infinity etc (see above). There is a mix of good girls and hookers in this place. Be wary how you approach girls , viz boyfriend might be around somewhere (toilet etc). Usually hookers give you the eye. Also be on the alert for trans-sexuals here and rest of Mango Square, and just about everywhere else in the Philippines (and Thailand .. more so).
Currently J's and Pump1 are the best disco prospects for a pick up. Always be sensitive to the fact that you might be targeting a non hooker, and maybe her boyfriend is in the disco somewhere, eg at bar or toilet etc. Tread warily. Even the hookers themselves do not like being approached as if they are hookers. Phils not hard core like Thailand.
Alcohology Disco ... is also located at Mango Square , and not far from the much more popular J. Ave disco. Have no info on it. Still in biz ?
Pump1 Disco : Less hookers at Pump1 than say J's mentioned above. Even J's is a mix of good girls and hookers too, especially say before 1am. Generally the hookers will give you the eye. If you do not like the excessive noise at Pump 1, you can sit outside where there are girls too (mostly korean when I was there) but first spend a few mins inside secure someone and take her outside away from the noise and smoke. Location of Pump1 : off Cardinal Reyes Ave, side of Cebu Grand Majestic Hotel. Every taxi driver should know it. Just say "Cebu Grand Majestic, Cardinal Reyes". Facing hotel, entrance is to the right, and around the side M-F ladies free, guys P50 on off nights (M-W only ?) P100 'on' nights (Frid and Sat for sure, and maybe Thurs too). P50 SanMig. Prices might have varied by the time you get there. Lot cheaper and slightly more effective pick up place than Sunflower (below).
UPDATE : One trip on Frid and Sat nights 90% koreans. Next trip 6 months later 90% filipinos. Worth a visit.
Sunflower Disco : CLOSED .... Whole area is going to be re-developed. That makes sense, valuable land in the right place.
All of this is Copyright info belonging to : whorist.com
Halo Disco - also in Mabolo, not far from where Paseo was located. Check taxi driver knows it before hopping in his car.Update : Never hear it mentioned nowadays, either closed, or lost popularity ?
The Loft - in IT Park, near Waterfront Hotel. In the Skyrise building. Friday and Saturday nights only. All taxi drivers should know it. Hookers in short supply here. Difficult for a pick up.
Budo's/Udos Disco - Think you can forget this one.
For the curious : Pronounced Boodos/ 'Oodoos'. Maybe it has changed its name to 'Vudu' nowadays ? Location : Crossroads Entertainment Complex, quite a taxi ride out from the city itself. Taxi drivers seem to know it. Haven't been there for yonks, so following info might be out of date ..... Smallish disco, no entrance fee, hence full of virgins : ) Seriously, pick up potential here is very limited. You can find a girlfriend/potential wife here, but can you find a fuck ? Expect the good girls to have a male friend or brother chaperoning them, or at least to be with one or two girl friends. The chances of one of them going home with you on the night you meet is remote. Dont go there for a quick pick up, its unlikely to happen. Everyone talks about Juliana's Disco nowadays, see above. UPDATE : I have now visited Budo's/Udos (Vudu) again. Middle class/rich people. They do not need you or me. Forget it.
Street Hookers for cheap and risky sex -
Forget street action in Cebu City. Extremely limited and of terrible quality. Possibility girls working in cahoots with Police. Drug addict girls etc. Davao City for a much bigger street scene (quality still not great though).
If you like reading : ), continue :
There is the odd lady of the night working the streets. Usually they are of poor quality and a security risk (valuables - room) . Walk up Osmena Blvd from Rajah Place Hotel (formerly Park Place Hotel) at Fuente Osmena (small park at centre of the roundabout) and at the second traffic lights North you might see a half a dozen gals parked on the corner. That is, the corner of Sta Christina and Osmena Blvd (also called Jones Avenue) P3/500 ST. A Pimp will pop up out of nowhere and take the money. Give pimp P300 only, and in the privacy of your room give the lady P200 tip and everyone is happy. Cheap sex, eh . Some will stay all night for only P5/750 all up. They do not come from a casa/brothel and thus have more flexibility re price and what they can and can not do. There were only two good ones there last time. Further along Sta Christina at the corner of J. Luna I was approached by young attractive ladies (2), offering themselves for P400 short time. They had no pimp, cutting costs, not willing to pay a pimp anything : ) P300 is the right price for these girls too.
UPDATE : Did a 1 hour or more 'crawl' in taxi, roughly same as in reconnoitres years before, very little on offer, and high percentage were transvestites posing as women. You can take a window seat at Shakeys Pizza (Fuente Osmena) eat a pizza, drink draft beer and try and score a girl passing by on the footpath, if you've got nothing better to do (long shot) : )
Alternatively, take a walk down Mango Ave/Maximillon Ave to the National Book Store area. Believe there is some hokey pokey going on in that area too nowadays. Personally, I have never seen any sign of it. Possibly and overflow from the Mango Square area (nearby). Beware of transvestites , and drug addicts working in cahoots with Police : )
Downtown : University of San Carlos - Corner of P. Del Rosario and Junquerra Streets. I've often heard tales of university students propping outside of the University at night seeking customers. These 'students' or anyone else for that matter, are not always there, and the ones I always see there look more like Jonquera type of girls, no education etc and therefore not 'students' at all. Pimps and gals have found that if the girls are called 'student', some mongers get excited and open up their wallets. In my opinion genuine students are not found this way. Anyway a significant number of girls you meet in Cebu will tell you they are a 'student'. It's a scam to raise the price and excite certain people who like to fantasise about screwing 'students' : )
I suggest you have some fun and do some research asking the girls, "are you a student" and see what % answer 'yes'. I suspect most will say yes : )
Conclusion : I asked well informed persons (Filipino's) re pay for play students at University San Carlos, day or night time, and they just laughed. Students do not sell themselves from street corners. They sell/hire via contacts, who are quite often gays. Enough said : )
Sometimes there are pimps downtown who discreetly sneak up on you and whisper in your ear "want a girl". Male and female pimps will approach you, downtown, eg Sanciangko-Palaez St area. ST500 (Max), LT1000 (Max) . Chances of an STD or HIV is higher with these 'bargain basement' girls, who can not afford expensive medicines to treat themselves.
BEWARE of any person setting you up with under age girls. Could cost you P100,000 to extricate yourself from the Police who will come thumping on your door. It's a set up with pimp and/or with girl , in cahoots with Police.
Whorehouses, Bordello's for prostitutes, escorts, whatever you want to call them :
Called Casa's in the Philippines. (Pronounced : car-saahs) . Limited info on Casa's down below.
SEX with - HOOKERS - CEBU
Note ... Right now, Jonquerra is in a lull. New Barangay (Village) Captain has curtailed activities somewhat. Update2 : Very much in a lull, not worth calling on, right now : ) Update : Still dead. Forget , waste of time nowadays.
Before Jonquerra took a nose dive, I wrote :
........ "Not far from Sanciangko-Palaez Sts is the Jonquera Settlement. Source of el cheepo chicks, some of them possibly underage (watch it, you could be set up and it will cost you dearly). For sleaze specialists, having a naughty in Jonquera is a must. I have done so, but only when I was a lot younger, not nowadays. In reality you can not screw in Jonquerra itself anymore nowadays.
Jonquerra services low income Filipinos and Foreigners who like a touch of sleaze or bargain basement girls. A taste of 'Sleaze Heaven' for you : ) Best way to get to the correct spot in Jonquerra, catch a taxi and say "Chicks, Jonquerra, Jakosalem entrance". (Chicks ... Hong-care-uh, Jaak-o-saalem entraance). Do not exit or enter car on road side (danger passing cars). Walk down the small laneway opposite where taxi stops and have a look around. Do not enter Jonquerra proper itself, its private accommodation/homes there. Ten/20 metres down the laneway will be sufficient. Alternatively just stay in taxi and the girls will surround you. Select from inside taxi, if you want : )
Regular ST price for Jonquera is P500 max, but they will most probably ask you for more : ) P700/1000 max for all night. Make sure she is going to stay all night. Pretty slack around this place, Mama-san might appear and collect the money before you take off with girl, maybe she doesnt, and girl give Mama her cut on return to Jonquerra. Give these poor girls min of P50 (max P100) taxi money to get back to Jonquerra. They are desperate and unfortunate souls with no future. Treat em right.
Think it's P200 ST for locals in Jonquera itself in tiny 'hot boxes', no ventilation, no fan. See pics on Feb 1st 2005 link Diaries page. Foreigners can no longer shag in these native hot boxes, which are located deep inside Jonquerra (not really safe).
All of this is Copyright info belonging to : whorist.com
Some of the Jonquera girls are scrawny, undernourished creatures, but somehow they keep smiling. A small number are quite pretty. It's condom time. The least you could expect without a condom is the clap (STD : )
Sleaze Heaven - Jonquera : )
Expat type whorehouses/casa's :
Cebu City is no longer a Casa (whorehouse) town.
ALL of the following is most probably out of date and irrelevant nowadays :
1. "Hana Valley.3." also know as "Gate.3" by taxi drivers.
CLOSED by authorities. Cebu city is no longer a Casa (whore house) town.
Before closure I wrote :
This ones at Banilad, not far from Country Mall, all taxi drivers know it. 7pm - 8pm best time. About 40 reasonably attractive girls when I called, asking price P3000 (compare GoGo girl P1700). If your prepared to pay these prices, I am confident you will be able to find something respectable at Hanna Valley.3. Info from their calling card : "Gate.3. J Panis St, c/r Vico Road, Banilad ... besides Cempark. Val Martin/Rey Grande (Pimp/Managers) Phone 232 1159". Not the best of atmosphere, here, goons, big steel gate etc, but forget that ..... go inside have a look like I did (on my own). I did not take any girl, no harm done : )
2. "Monet" - Gay owned and run. Time I called they only had 5 girls in residence, reckon they can call more in. Not my scene, not hanging around waiting for girls to arrive, I moved on. Forget , most probably closed.
Every taxi driver knows Monet, "behind Capitol" (State government building, top of Jones/Osmena Blvd). Apparently Monet ask P3/4000, not worth it, stick with Hana Valley 3 (above).
3. Whore houses (casa's) are no longer my scene, but , if you hired a taxi by the hour (P200 per hour ?) you might come across a small number of Casa's (?) , some of them 'native style',ie, catering for Filipinos. Doubtful , forget. Manila for Casa's.
Sex Massage Parlours (limited supply) :
As explained before, I am not a Massage fan. Consequently use the following prices as a guide only.
SEX with - Young sexy Women - CEBU
"Finland". This one has moved to 3rd Floor "Luym" (Pron : Loo em) Building, on the corner of Juan Luna and Plaridel Streets. Coming down Osmena Blvd, you cross over Colon St, Osmena changes its name to Juan Luna St. Further down on right hand side you will find Plaridel St sign, Finland is on that corner. All taxi drivers know Luym. P450 massage only, plus extra for sex. Finland is one of the longest established massage places. Reportedly prices are : Room P750 plus Massage/Sex P1000 (Same as an allnighter from a GoGo Bar : ). Only about ten girls to choose from, nothing like Thailand scene. Seems to be the most popular massage place nowadays, but Cebu is not a good place for Massage. Personally dont know, never take a Massage (bad value in my opinion).
Mars Massage. 3rd Flr Hallmark Hotel (small sign, doesnt look like a hotel) , 179 Osmena Blvd, just over Colon Intersection, near a c/r near Gaisano Metro Dept Store. Massage P300, BJ500. Full sex ? not sure. Ph.2536906 for clearer directions. Alternatively just ask taxi driver "Hallmark Hotel".
Orchid Spa - in the Crown Regency Hotel, V. Rama St. Think you can forget this one nowadays. It too has gone downhill. Girls not of foreigner standard, anymore.
Waterfront Hotel Lahug supposedly offers Massage too. Would not be cheap. Girls should be attractive, but you never know : ) Taxi drivers know it.
Budget Massage - "Hearts Health Services" Massage. Formerly located on the Ground Floor of the Fuente Pension House, now located at 21A Gorordo Avenue, Lahug. Directions : coming from Maxillon Ave (aka Mango Ave) and heading North up Gorordo Ave approx 200mtrs on left you will see large 'Aerophone' sign. Directly opposite on the other side of the road (Gorordo Ave) is a small shop like building with a 'Hearts Health Services' sign above the door. Very basic place. Finland (above) more popular.
Cost of Heart massage : Reportedly as follows .... P250 sixty mins massage only, no sexual titillation. Blow Job P500 but maybe only with condom. P1000 for sex/intercourse. Remember you only have 60 mins all up. You can get a Freelancer all night (8pm - 8am 12hrs) elsewhere with BJ thrown in for P500/1000. Some punters have reported that Hearts is not as hygienic as it should be. After you have visited the place let's know what you think.
Caesars Palace Mandaue City - not cheap. Dont know much about it, called there a long time ago. Some cuties those days.
Rajah Place Hotel (or Rajah Park ... formerly Garwood/Park Place Hotel etc etc, they keep changing the name, had four names in as many years !) Fuente Osmena, might have a Massage service. Big Sign on wall outside "Casino Filipino". UPDATE : This Hotel now under new management, see Forum report, give this place a miss.
Top hotels usually offer Massage, enquire if its sex massage or not.
Downtown Hunting for Sex :
NOTE : I do not do this anymore. Nowadays, very thin pickings. Maybe cause I am a lot older now : )
For those who want to read something :
Day time only, or to 7pm night. Do not hang around downtown after 9pm. Can be unsafe.
Day time : Get the taxi driver to drop you off at Colon Street, about a fifteen minute walk down Jones Avenue from Rajah Place Hotel. Then walk up and down Colon Street, going in and out of all the Department Stores, especially Gaisano Metro on the corner. The female employees of these stores can be attractive and they would just love to toss that poorly paid job in for your passport (ie marry you and get your citizenship) . I am not suggesting you trick them with marriage proposals that you have no intention of carrying out. Such tactics are frowned upon by yours truly and are not necessary, to get a naughty (see below story). But ever the optimists, these girls have marriage to a foreigner on their mind. Use that motivation to your advantage and chat the shop assistants up. Also, chat girls shopping. Cebuano's are very approachable, if a little shy. Give them your prepared cell phone number. Sit back and see what happens. I bet you start getting text messages almost immediately : )
Marriage story : One foreigner used the 'marriage' bait one time too many. Girls mother reported him, he was apprehended at Airport, spent 4 months in prison, when he finally agreed to pay P700,000 compensation and got out of jail. Not sure what the charge was, but dont go around fooling Filipino women, you could pay a heavy price for doing so.

Away from Downtown Hunting for Sexy Ladies :
"Away from", meaning .... not near old original city centre (Colon St). Short taxi ride from downtown (Colon St) and/or Fuente Osmena (uptown) :
Ayala Shopping Mall -
Best thing is get taxi to Ayala (pronounced : Aa-yaa-lah) , any entrance will do, try your luck getting girls this way :
1. In the Dept Stores themselves try dropping off your cellphone number to an attactive shop assistant
2. Walking around, see a nice one, smile, say hello and see if you can get her to stop. Invite her (and girlfriend) to a snack whatever. Take it from there.
3. Prop at any coffee shop, outside table, not inside shop, and see if you can get a nice one passing by to stop and join you at your table.
There are pretty ordinary street type hookers hunting for unsuspecting newbie type tourist guys at Ayala too. They will approach you. You can safely ignore them. Then there are attractive ones ... you will have to take the initiative with the attractive ones. Update : Last trip saw some cute ones at Ayala. They dont walk around, they prop at a table and smile at you as you pass. Join them, buy a drink sus it out. Saturday night is possibly the busiest night. Beware of transvestites posing as women.
Overall, your chances of success will depend on your age and how you look, behave. Younger guys have more eye appeal but sometimes are too hard core. Phil girls do not like anyone approaching them or talking to them like they are hookers. A young guy who was sweet and charming should succeed in Ayala or any Shopping Mall in Phils.
An older guy (over 50's and beyond) might find it a little harder. Depends on a lot of factors ... sharply dressed ? smiley ? talks nicely ? Age is not such a factor in Phils, but young hot spunks might smile at an oldie but also might not let him pick them up .... peer pressure : )
Do not have too high an expectation when hunting in Shopping Malls. Same girl can more easily be had via dating webiste eg dateinasia.com First she meets you online, you chat for a week or two, then you meet = your not a stranger, and she is not a "pick up", in her, and her friends minds. "Oh I met him online", they can say. Better than saying "He picked me up at the Shopping Mall" : )
Online dating sites : dateinasia.com, filipinocupid.com, asiandating.com ..... see below "Internet" info.
All of this info belongs to : whorist.com ..
Shoe Mart Shopping Mall -
This is a Shopping Mall, just like Ayala above (see info above).
Same modus operandi as Ayala above, only I find girls here seem to be younger, less educated types. I doubt very much if they expect to be picked up at the Mall by a foreigner. Many are under age too. Better looking and right age (18-25yrs) girls at Ayala. Atmosphere different at SM too, not a "pick up" atomosphere : )
"French Baker" pastry shop is well known, but I have never ever picked up anything from there.
Perhaps there are more girls at SM, but pick up potential greater at Ayala, methinks.
Just say to taxi driver "SM" (Shoe Mart Shopping Mall), main entrance. And the modus operandi same as Ayala, above. Short taxi ride from Ayala.
Lots of Department Store girls at SM for you to approach, they are a better age range, than the ones walking around 'shopping'. Girls walking around seem to be mostly under age, from poorer families. Not all, of course : )
Even so, SM is a "must see", might just be for you : ) Try new North Wing entrance, outside tables, bit of a view, can drink , and maybe a nice chick will pass by : )
Other Shopping Mall possibilities :
Downtown shops in Colon Street are suffering from the competition of huge shopping malls like Ayala and SM . But, you have a better chance of a pick up in these downtown shops, especially with the staff, much better. But myself, I have gone 'up market' mentally and cannot suffer the working class scene of Colon St, and dirty streets etc. A new guy should have a chance in Colon St. Ayala and Shoemart are aloof by comparison.
Food Halls/Cafeterias : These have 'meet' (pick up) potential too. Buy something cheap and sit next to a cutie, strike up conversation. Gaisano Metro (downtown) has a large Food Hall on the 5th Floor. Potential 'meet', pick up place. Little or no foreigner competition here.
Unfortunately I am too snobbish nowadays for 'downtown' : )
Robinsons basement food hall, Fuente Osmena (uptown), lunch time, has similar limited pick up potential. For sure hungry eyes will check you out as you enter this area : ) Coffee Shop, near Internet Cafe, same building, is a slight opportunity for a Spider and Fly pick up too.
Fort San Pedro - and the Park it is located in . Downtown, and not far from the Wharf area.
Note : I think you can call this area, a long shot at best nowadays. Check out on a Sunday afternoon only, and see what you think.
This area can make for amusing frivolities. Sundays 2pm onwards and into the evening there are some Housemaids etc strolling around here, hoping to meet a Filipino boy friend. Beauty Queens are not in abundance, nevertheless I know a guy who scored two cuties at this place. Two mins walking distance from Eddies Log Cabin (closed on Sundays) and normally not an area to be in at night, but there should be a Police presence in the Fort San Pedro on peoples day - Sunday. It seems this rendeszvous spot has replaced Fuente Osmena/Park Circle meeting place, opposite Garwood Hotel, which has been dampened to almost extinction by the authorities. Girls other than Housemaids, seeking romance, also frequent the San Pedro area. Working class girls or unemployed girls, nothing 'classy' struts around Fort San Pedro, Sundays or any other day. Even so, sweet, charming and admiring (of foreigners) these girls are. The occasional pimp might approach you, thus interrupting the nice innocent ambience. He is there, just in case you do not find 'romance' : )
UPDATE (San Pedro) : Very few 'victims' available on my one and only visit to San Pedro, Sunday night too, prime night, but had been raining before. Maybe that 'killed' it (rain) ? Then, on a later trip, luck, scored a nice one. Did not walk around patrolled in taxi (internal road). Safer to patrol from taxi.
Fuente Osmena circular park area (opposite Rajah Place Hotel/Robinsons) used to have potential too. Not sure if its still 'active'. Possibly on weekends ? For sure it was busy during Christmas/N.Year/Sinulog last time I was there. UPDATE : Place still empty. Seems they only open up the place during special occasions (Sinulog/Chrissy etc).

Contacts for sex encounters :
WARNING : It has now been brought to my notice, that it is illegal, and considered "Sex Trafficking", if you recruit someone to get girls for you. Hence the information below, should be read with that in mind nowadays. No liabilities if you ignore my warning. Because of new "trafficking" legislation/law , I do NOT get girls via Contacts anymore.
This is what I wrote before I came across : "Section 4a of the Philippines Republic Act No. 9208. Sex Trafficking (READ IT !) ................
"This method of getting girls via contacts is SLOW, and needs PATIENCE. If your in a hurry, this method will not work ! For success with this one you need mongering experience.
Over many years, I developed Filipino contacts. To get the better ladies, who do not regularly hire themselves out, you need intermediaries. As I think I have mentioned elsewhere, if you don't mind talking to gays, they are a good intermediary to girls that we expats do not normally meet (in bed).
Unfortunately I can not bring myself to talking to gays and so, as an alternative, I cultivated a small number of female and male agents. Non professionals can be lured by a fellow female but its a bigger ask if you set a male to recruit ladies. There are so many unemployed girls around it is not too difficult to get folks to pimp for you, but make sure they are not recruiting from a 'native' jonquerra style whore house/brothel. This is where experience helps.
Even the good girls ( 'Agents' ) in the Philippines are a wily lot. Must be in the Filipino genes. I vary my approach all the time, sometimes getting ladies through 'agents' and then other times by myself, out and about 'hunting'. Any which way, as long as they are little brown bombers/LBB's : )
Note - I do not pass on names/addresses of contacts/girls. I tried giving names of contacts/girls to website folks but it backfired on me. Complaints from mongers : 'contact/girl no good', this/that happened. Complaints from Filipino contact/girl : 'foreigner no good', and so on. My contacts don't like the idea of being thought of as pimps ('loss of face') either , hence they have requested me not to refer people to them anymore. I gave up giving out girls phone numbers long time ago. Unsatisfactory for all concerned. Personal security reasons also have to be considered.
With patience and persistence, you can find your own Contacts and thus non whore/semi whore type girls. Moving around shopping malls, disco's etc, that is, simple 'hunting', should net you some babes. But you will not do this on one short trip. Needs time and experience.
Full time pimps in downtown Cebu City or anywhere else, are usually unsatisfactory mediums, especially for the newcomer. They will trick and scam you and bring you trash, same stuff you can find yourself downtown for less".
Because of "trafficking" legislation/law I do NOT get girls via Contacts anymore !
Online Dating/Internet : This is another way of recruiting honey's. For the inexperienced, more effective than 'Contacts' listed above. Popular wesbsites : dateinasia.com (free) ; filipinocupid.com ; asiandating.com, and many more.
Bear in mind there are some girls, who instead of being a GoGo girl whatever, decide to 'jockey' the Internet, making friends with guys, telling them plausible stories and getting the guys to send them money. Some of these girls are so good at doing this, they have ten or more guys sending them money on a regular basis. Also, the picture of the girl on the Internet is not necessarily the pic of the girl you are writing to. Add to that, the person you are communicating with might be a man using some pretty girls photo to scam you.
So beware of these angles. My guess is 80% are genuine, but watch out for the exceptions : )
I do not have much personal experience via the Internet but know enough to suggest :
1. Make contact only 2/4 weeks before you arrive in Philippines. Otherwise you might be on the receiving end of too many hard luck stories and requests for money. Also, the longer the communication goes the more the girl will think your going to marry her etc. Such girls can be difficult to turn into a bedtime companion and even more difficult to get rid of.
2. Have a number of girls lined up cause sometimes they look very different from the pic on the Internet. Also you only see their face on the internet, what about the body, is she in a wheelchair or what ? How about the vibes ? Any ? She might be flat as a tack when you meet her in person : )
3. Do not tell them you are coming. Simply arrive, then meet number one choice etc, otherwise you've got 4/6 girls calling at your Hotel same time : )
4. Flavour right now is : datinasia.com Then there is .... asianeuro.com and filipinocupid.com, popular. Folks also talk about "cherryblossom". Adultfinder is another one. Think if you searched Google you'll find plenty of them.
Cialis/Viagra : If you use the stuff and do not have a prescription, rumour has it that Priscilla Pharmacy on the corner of Juan Luna & F. Gonzalez Streets down town, will hand it out to you. UPDATE : Maybe more freely available at most pharmacies nowadays. Priscilla is inconvenient to find, try eg the big Mercury Drug Store at Fuente Osmena (opposite Robinsons) first. Or when in Ayala Mall, go upstairs to small supermarket style pharmacy. They are known to sell without prescription. Not cheap, only cheap in Angeles City, and then without a prescription (Angeles).
Mandaue City has Hookers too -
Liza's Sea-Fun Bar :
In "Escape-1" Diaries page, I referred to it as 'Pirate Bar'.
UPDATE : Liza's has been on the receiving end of police raids, like so many other places, over time. Apparently they only serve drinks now, NO barfining ? Consequently I do not recommend going all the way out to, difficult to find, Liza's, until they get back to barfining (if ever).
Update2 : Maybe closed down now
Update.3. : Maybe re-opened now. .
This is what I wrote before 'raid' and possible closure , mentioned above :
"Location : Manpark Road, Del Pilar Street, Guizo, Mandaue City (Phone 3444 229). Cellphone (Liza, Owner) : 0916 745 5243. Difficult for taxi drivers to find, hence phone number might come in handy. Liza (owner) can talk to your taxi driver on your cellphone and direct him to her place. I do not remember prices but they were not high , more than reasonable, except Ladies Drinks which were P150 each. When I called 30/40 attractive girls, nice atmosphere and cheap beer (Think it was P50 ). They have grope lounge areas and girls are bar fineable, P1500. I would put this place in the top five bars of Cebu City (Actually Mandaue, an extension of Cebu City). Definitely worth visiting. If it was situated anywhere near Viking-Black Hole GoGo strip, the Viking-Black folks would get a run for their money. No pole/gogo dancing at Liza's but better girls (personal opinion) and better atmosphere. Note : 'Pirate' is closed Sundays.
Pirate is the best bar in Mandaue (for me). A well kept secret until I stumbled onto it : )
Update : Havent been there for a long time, dont know if its gone up or down" : )
SK2 (formerly Club Harem) :
Note : There has been a change of ownership and a name change to SK2. Very short, strange name. Taxi drivers still know it as Club Harem. Approx P125 taxi ride to get there. Sundays might be closed (?).
Girls not as good as with previous owners. Even so, maybe worth a trip out there and check for yourself.
Some very brief nudity, only some. P100 entrance (P200 now ?) , P100 beer, and P300 ladies drink. Did not see any girl there worth P300 LD. Presume bar fining would be available at silly prices. Currently, basically a pinoy (filipino male) place, and thus be on your best behaviour. I will not be returning, unless I hear standard of girls has improved to something like it was with previous owners.
There are lots of other dingy/sleazy, native style places in Mandaue. Not so safe as the two mentioned above. Watch your behaviour in these 'Other' places, catering for the local filipino boys.
No intention of returning to the following places, hence info might be out of date now :
Sunrise Angels Bar : At the 45min mark, on of my earlier trips (before I discovered 'Pirate' Bar) I'd had enough perving, exited Harem and checked out "Sunrise Angels Bar", a little distance from Harem, in A.C. Cortez St, Mandaue City. No entrance fee, Beer P60, Ladies Drink P260 (ridiculous) and take out all night P4000 (ridiculous). 80% of them are only worth P1000. There were two exceptions, one was a P1500 gal, the other a P2000 gal (looker). When you call, who knows which girls will be there. Might be absent of all lookers, no one knows. Well basically this is a 'native' joint with average looking babes who would fuck better than the Harem ones at a guess. Harem ones most probably have an opinion of themselves (beautiful). Sunrise : Tiny little stage, furnishings of entire place would have cost no more than $1000 at a guess. Not bad for a 'native' experience : )
Next door to Angels there are two more 'native' bars, didnt try them, would be similar to Angels methinks. There are also other 'native' style bars scattered around Mandaue City. Better to be with a friend or a filipino (guy) as escort. You just never know : )
Mactan - Lapu Lapu City for sleazy sex encounters :
GUIDE : Use as a rough guide only.
Note : I rarely visit Mactan nowadays. Nothing much happening out there, for a sophisticated gent like me : )
In my opinion it's a bit of a nuisance going all the way out to Mactan Island (P150 taxi ride or more), near the International Airport, to Lapu Lapu City . And getting back via taxi sometimes harder. There is not a lot to be had out there and your not as secure as you are in Cebu City. Nevertheless, a must visit for the curious and those desiring a change from the Cebu City scene.
A smattering of native style go-go's and whore houses. That's about it. Remember, if you see a cutie at Lapu Lapu you have to cart her all the way back to Cebu City if you want to bang her in the privacy of your room. Ive done it, on occasions, but it seems an awfully long ride back to your room, especially when your keen to unwrap the merchandise and see whats inside.
Hire a taxi on an hourly basis, with a minimum of two hours (whether you have him for two hours or not) guaranteed to the driver, is best. Otherwise the drivers can make more picking up passengers. Nice tip at the end, if he does a good job (P100). The taxi driver will find all the places for you. Hourly rate : depends if your hiring him during a peak or off peak period. Use P200 per hour as a guide. Getting a taxi back to Cebu City can sometimes be difficult, best hire a taxi on hourly basis.
For some reason, the Japanese like Lapu Lapu, maybe cause its further away from Police HQ (Cebu City) and not heavily patrolled, and thus they can get up to their particular kind of monkey business. If you find yourself sitting in a 'Jap' place, expect the prices to be higher. UPDATE : Japanese numbers have drastically declined. Koreans are taking their place.
Small dick, big money, how could a girl resist ? : )
"Cadillac Cafe" :
Read Update, below, first . Closed. This is what I wrote before closure :
This is a happening on Friday nights 10pm on. Maybe Sat nights too (didnt try), but not during week days (did try). They have accom there at P600 I believe but its value to me was the Friday night party. Small number of freelancers, maybe only two or three sometimes. But for me, the staff there are the target. Not a bad band, nice singers (girls) and happy good vibes atmosphere.
Suggest you call say 10pm, secure a good table, check out Freelancers available and sip beer. Next time I would prop at a table, leave something of no value on it to secure it, then wander off to best looking staff girl and order beer with her. All this within 60 secs to avoid wrong girl serving me. Chances are she will get the message (your interested) and serve you. Then, around second or third drink (and tipping her generously eg P20 each time) discretely pass her your cell phone number whilst asking for hers.
Around 12 midnight, after having made contact with the chick of your choice, leave final tip of say P50/100 to same girl, then head off for Cebu City and the real action.
Cadillac on Friday nights is the only real action I have experienced on Mactan Island (recent years).
UPDATE1 : Cadillac Cafe raided by Police and apparently currently closed. Possibility of it being re-opened not good. Forget this place for time being. Update2 ... still closed. Forget.
White Castle (WC) .... On main road to airport, large building. Taxi drivers will know WC and its getting regular mentions. Update : Security guy at door wasnt keen on letting me inside. Did not enter. Think its an exclusive Japanese/Korean place nowadays.
Mermaid Bar (MB) ... Maybe best of a bad bunch. Not saying much. Visited the place. In no hurry to return (incls no hurry to return to Mactan).
Cruise around in a taxi you have hired by the hour (2/3hrs min). Out of taxi hop inside one beer, not good ? out, hop in taxi, and so on.
Some of following might have changed name/closed. I rarely go long distance to Mactan/LapuLapu nowadays. Enough in Cebu City for everyone.
"Club Bikini" - If still open definitely worth a peek. Might be shut down, not sure.
Kara-oke/Jap-oke - "VIP" & "XO" are the big players. Walking distance from each other. Asking P2000 for the girl. Unsatisfactory value.
KTV - Golden Calesa KTV, 1st Floor (UK), Waterfront Airport Hotel for fair skinned Visayan lookers. Mix of Americano and Japanese clientele. Not cheap. Budget babes can be found Freelancing in the Lobby 9pm on' UPDATE : Last trip 9pm on' not a single freelancer in lobby, and no one in KTV which had something like a P280 entrance (consumables). Hello girl and others 'pushy', so out of there I go.
Massage - Waterfront Airport Hotel.
La France Cafe : Apparently its near Save More Supermarket. You might have a chance of picking up girls here, eg 4pm onwards. UPDATE : Last trip I was told by someone who should know that there is little or no chance of a pick up at this place.
Your really out of the way/isolated when you are based on Mactan Island. Exception - if your more of a beach freak than a bitch freak. Handy for beaches.
Accommodation : Heard of Ace Pension, opposite Gaisano Mall, walking distance to some bars. Budget accommodation, large rooms.
All of this info belongs to : whorist.com
Moalboal, limited sex potential : Very far from Cebu City. Very far, along the coast.
Diving Dongs (Scuba/PADI guys) like the place. Older folk not so keen on it. We have yet to receive a balanced report on this place, as no over 40's have submitted anything on it to date. Note - watch your valuables in Moalboal (and everywhere else for that matter).
In 35yrs nothing I have heard about the place has tempted me to go there. Enough said.
Although, apparently on Frid and Sat nights there is a happening Disco at Pacita's Resort, where girls come from all around, just to sell pussy. Long way to go for a Disco : )
You can get there by taxi, cost you a bit (quite a distance) or go by bus ex the Southern Bus Terminal in P. del Rosario St (downtown). You would have to stay there overnight, very far from Cebu City itself. Certainly not a high priority destination : )
Bohol, even more limited sex potential : Even further away from Cebu City, not even on Cebu Island, its across the sea !
Whilst in Cebu, you might decide to squeeze in a side trip to Bohol Island . Very sweet people, but the ambience, in its major town - Tagbilaran, is disturbed by a million noisy mosquito's (motorbike taxi's) running up and down the main street, mostly empty. Accommodation and Restaurants are difficult. Nightlife is almost non existent. Been there about three times, enjoyed myself to a certain extent, but always returned home to Cebu City empty handed.
If a Boholana wants to get her gear off for a fee, she does it in Cebu City, not in her own backyard where everybody can see what she's doing. And if a resident expat of Bohol, or whoever, wants to have a naughty night, he hops on a Trimiran and spends the weekend in Cebu City.
Bohol is quite an enchanting place, but dont be over confident about success with the ladies. PS: The much touted Chocolate Hills are over rated. And the girls are particularly pretty, smiley, and healthy looking : )
See Other Towns, Dumaguete, for info on how to get to Bohol on the "Ocean Jet" trimiran service.
So, its time to say farewell to this virtual 'Pearl of the Orient', aka, 'Sows Ear', Cebu City, and say hello to laid back, largely sexually limited ... Davao City.
