In addition to the Temple of Leah and Sirao Garden, there’s another superb place to explore in Busay. It’s called Tops Lookout, often referred to simply as “TOPS,” and it’s a popular tourist spot in Cebu. Situated in Busay, Cebu, famously known as the Queen City of the South in the Philippines, Tops Lookout offers breathtaking views and is a must-visit tourist attraction.

This place charges an entrance fee of ₱100.00 for all visitors, which you must pay before entering Tops. Regardless of whether you’re a local or a foreigner, a child or an adult, the rate is the same. Some visitors may find it disappointing that there are no discounted rates or free entry for children. It’s also important to mention that a few stalls on-site sell relatively pricey food and drinks, and the area isn’t spacious. However, the breathtaking city view, whether by day or night, truly justifies a visit to witness the entire city of Cebu.

  • If you’re on a budget for food and drinks, I suggest you bring your own as the price is doubled.
