Tops Lookout - Busay, Cebu City, Philippines

Amazing Cebu City Lights at Tops

The Tops Lookout is one of Cebu City's tourist attractions that is located in one of the mountainous barangays of the city, Busay (just like Sirao Flower Farms/Sirao Peak). This place is popular among local tourists due to its mild climate, perfect for lovers, family, friends and barkada (group) for a much deserved relaxation and most of all for getting a bird's eye view of the amazing Cebu City lights.

BEST TIME
In my opinion, the best time to get there is from 4:00pm to 5:00pm as there are certain areas along the way that is too dark if you go there after the sun sets. If you want to go there in the morning, you'll be able to see Cebu City's skyline but it would be best to get there at night to see Cebu City's amazing array of lights.

The last time I was there was in the late 90's and it's good to know that they haven't renovated the place that much, if they do, it could be very minimal for me to not notice it at all.

Looks like their pre-nup pictorial continues here hmmm (lol)
There are several food stalls there where you can order food and drinks.

ENTRANCE
The entrance fee/toll fee is now Php100 or US$2. (Not that I can remember but my brother told me that the entrance fee used to be consumable before for food and drinks but not anymore or not that we asked if it was).

GETTING THERE
OPTION 1
We get there on a private vehicle but I saw a poster pasted on the wall (as below) that offers services going down or going up which also include a package. See the schedules and the pricing below.

Temple of Leah is also a popular tourist attraction in Cebu City.
OPTION 2
If the number listed above fails, you can get to Tops by hiring a jeepney going to JY Square Mall. Disembark there and hire a motorbike (habal-habal) to get you to Tops. Travel time is between 15 minutes to 20 minutes from JY Square to Tops.

OPTION 3
Hire a taxi to take you to JY Square Mall then tell the driver to drop you off where motorbikes for hire (habal-habal) are, then hire a motorbike to take you to Tops. Again, best time to get there is before sunset. 

OPTION 4
If I were to commute there, I will take this route. Hire a motorbike (habal-habal) at San Jose Bakeshop or near the Talamban Sports Complex to take me to Tops. Travel time will most likely be 30-40 minutes.
