Tops Lookout, Cebu City

#5 of 132 in Things to do in Cebu City
Observation Deck · Tourist Spot
See the remarkable scenery of the surrounding green mountains and the bustling port-city below at Tops Lookout. The vantage point stands around 600 m (1,968 ft) above the city's skyline, from where you can observe high structures such as churches, universities, hotels, and a cable-stayed bridge. To reach the site, take a 20-minute motorbike or car ride to the top, where a rather otherworldly scene unfolds. Architecturally, the whole structure ornamented with tropical flowers rests on a hexagon-pattern plateau with concrete and stone indoor rooms subdivided by circular entrances. After taking in the panoramic view, head to the surrounding snack bars or stores for food and drinks, and visit the souvenir shop for quality memorabilia.

  • A Nice view if you visit the Tops Lookout during the sunset time because you will witness the transformation of daytime to twilight and also the view of street lights.  more »
  • If you are looking for a place to sit back and relax I totally recommend this place. Enjoying the city lights. It may be super cold but it's totally worth it. You will surely catch your breath with the scenery.
  • By the Tops Lookout you have a nice overview over Cebu. Special when the weather is good. Beside the overview and what sittings for a warm or cold drink is there not so much to do. It is good that it is not to touristic, but they can add some more things. You can go there by a grab. But be aware that it is better to let them wait, make a price. If not you have maybe a challenge to go back.
