Healthy bookings for hotels for the Sinulog
If you are planning to visit Cebu to witness the Sinulog Festival, it is advisable to book early since hotel bookings are increasing as the event approaches. Carlo Suarez, president of the Hotel, Resort and Restaurant Association of Cebu Inc. (HRRAC) said occupancy is increasing in hotels as tourists have started to book rooms in advance . He added that tourist arrivals were not affected by the travel advisory of the United Kingdom following the recent bombing in Cotabato City. Suarez said they will know if all hotels in Cebu are fully booked around a week before the Sinulog Grand Parade.
Sinulog Grand Parade tickets available soon
Tickets to the Sinulog Grand Parade will be available this week—a week before the event. The availability of the tickets was delayed to prevent the proliferation of fake tickets. Cebu City Councilor Dave Tumulak, Sinulog Foundation Inc (SFI) executive committee chairman, said ticket reservations are already being accepted even if the tickets are not yet available . Ticket prices range from PhP1,000 for the green and pink tickets up to PhP3,000 for the red tickets.
