ALTHOUGH she feels pressured, Dianne Padillo is at the same time excited about being part of of Binibining Cebu 2018.

”Just by looking at the ‘ungo na sa pageant’  (experienced) candidates, I learned something new from them. Yes I am a beginner, but it will not be a hindrance to chasing my dreams,” she said.

As a tourism graduate, Padillo recommends the Sirao Garden, Temple of Leah, Tops Lookout, Taoist Temple, Cebu Cathedral, Casa Gorordo, Museo Sugbo, and Fort San Pedro as among the must-visit places in Cebu City North.

“Its old churches, museums, cathedrals, and monument remind us of its legacy that has endured for centuries,” she said.

She also encourages visitors to experience the Sinulog Festival, the grandest festival in the country in honor of Señor Sto. Niño, which takes place in January.
