THE QUOTABLE QUOTES
Being a fan of quotes, I immediately noticed them upon entering the resort. What caught my attention is this "Leave nothing but footprints, take nothing but pictures, kill nothing but time". My mother has the easiest translation to this in Cebuano, "sakay kanaug sa jeepney stop" (hahaha). There are several other quotes that you may find inspiring while roaming around the property.
The mountain resort is one of the most popular attractions in the western part of Cebu province and is famous among local tourists. In West 35, you can do obstacle courses, ziplining, trekking and do a 360 degrees sightseeing (the municipality of Balamban) via the viewing deck.

Option 1: Per West 35 Facebook page - GT Express
Ayala Park GT Express Terminal bound for Balamban and
Citilink GT Express Terminal bound for Balamban via Transcentral Hi-way
Option 2: Via private vehicle or taxi
In any point in Cebu, hire a taxi and tell the driver to bring you to West 35. Most taxi drivers are familiar with the place but I suggest, hire the one who had been there. You know you're in the right direction when you pass by Marco Polo Plaza and you know you are nearer when you pass by the "Welcome to Balamban" signage. The place is in Barangay Gaas, Balamban, Cebu.
Option 3: Via motorbike (habal-habal)
You can either rent a motorbike or charter a habal habal (motorbike) from JY Square Mall in Lahug. Tell the driver to bring you to West 35. Most of them should be familiar with the place but go with the one who had been there.
