Recommended Posts

Guys I'm going to Cebu today,never been so I'm not sure what the gay scene will be like .

I haven't planned a hotel yet, I know  is Nirish said he stayed in st mark hotel, any suggestions?

Philippines still has a strict mask policy unfortunately so some bars maybe still closed

I stayed in the Wellcome Hotel, near the Ayala centre.    The place N Irish suggested might be better located.

Picking a Hotel depends on your budget.

I like the Best Western LEX on N Escario St. Great roof top swimming pool and good breakfast buffet. But not Gay Bars near there. If you want to stay next to Ayala Center, the largest mall in Cebu, then look at the Quest. Within easy walking distance to the Mall, good choice of breakfast, and again a great swimming pool.

For night life you should plan an all nighter at one of the two Discos. ICON in central Cebu City and OQTAGON in Mandaue City. Both just get started about 10pm and go until 5am. I guess there are a few Go Go Bars there, but I have not been to them.

Enjoy!!

Well guys arrived this morning in Cebu with my Pinoy boyfriend.

Ok I was a little bit silly took a tout hire care 700 pesos to city from airport when I probably could of got a taxi for 300 pesos !

But I'm blamed it in my filipino bf obviously it's my fault as I started talking to the tout who approached me ,but the Cebu airport to city is about 30 minutes so I guess it's about 300/400 in a taxi? next time I will know, first time to Cebu I get scammed out of 300 /400 pesos ,oh well 😁 next time I will just go to the taxi rank !

I mean I could be wrong but I'm sure I got scammed but as my Filipino bf says to me "stop harping on it,it's only like $10 ,it's not the money it's more my stupidity,why didn't I just walk out to the taxi rank like I usually do in Bangkok,no silly me goes with the first taxi tout who approsches me, ok fair enough it was a modern Mercedes Benz he drove us in but was it worth 700 pesos ???..

Anyway I'm not going to harp on about it !

I believe I could of got a taxi from the rank for probably 200 on the Meter ,but anyway silly me took a Mercedes Benz who approached me for 700 pesos ,oh well im stupid,I'm blaming my Filipino bf but he is not from Cebu so didn't know,not that it was his fault anyway , 

Anyway what's done is done,I paid 700 pesos to the city when I probably could of got it for 200 with a Meter taxi anyway I'm not going in about it anymore !!

Well the good news is  though my  first night here , I booked a 5 star hotel from Agoda for 2500 pesos about $65/70  a night roughly 

Big gym, swimming pool ,etc 

I just went walking with my bf into a Filipino street area for street food and met Filipino guys eating street food,shared street food,drank beer ,hot looking boys everywhere !

That's the good thing about having a Filipino bf who is not girlish and can take you to street type places to meet genuine Filipino people.

I will be hitting Grindr tonight maybe 2 or 3 times for free yes free boys to visit ,not going to pay as there are plenty here who want free sex !

My default setting is to ignore touts.   Keep walking & strictly no eye contact.  Give them no hope.

I got to my hotel in Cebu with a combination of the bus and a walk.  The bus was fine, but the walk was slightly longer than I'd expected.  By the time I moved onto a hotel on Mactan island, I'd wised up and used a Grab taxi.

Day 2 in Cebu ,still a mix of money boys and non money boys on Grndr ,but unlike other areas of Phillipines Cebu seems to have a bit more mostly around the 1000 pesos ( I thought no that's around 800 baht )  to help with uni studies .

Your dealing with uni students not lower end money boys if I can put that nicely 

Now here I'm seeing a lot of  girlish feminine type boys working as waiters etc,good looking slim twinky types unlike other areas of the Phillipines 

A few of you commented that you should travel with a Filipino guy, in my experience that's a negative.

Because I'm travelling with my Filipino bf I'm unable to be chatted up my many of the Filipino guys because they see that ,I prefer next to me to be alone !!!

Everyone mostly speaks english here anyway , all signs are in English 

You don't need a travelling companion,

Just had a boy 22yo staying in my hotel !

1 metre away on Grindr ,staying with his girlfriend on a lower floor, 

He is into old guys I guess,5 minutes into he blew his load,he said he was a Chinese Filipino, obviously rich as he couldn't afford to stay in this hotel,now grinder is going again and believe me guys I'm no spring chicken but these Filipino guys are so horny 

I can't believe they don't want money ??

There are many single old farangs at breakfast here looking at male waiters

The negative in the Philippines is your not getting that social interaction with other farangs in a bar,but today in Cebu which is a tourist type island in the middle of the Phillipines I will look out for gay bars 

Maybe some of you could let me know where & what you did here in Cebu ?

I usually paid 300-500 minimum for the Taxi from the Airport to Central Cebu City. So 700 for a Limo is not so bad. Only about USD14.

ENJOY

OH and what is the name of your hotel??

I think there are only two Go Go Bars there. Both far out in Mandaue City. Never been to them. Go Go Bars in the PH are not like in Thailand!!

Most Pinoy guys go to the Disco. There used to be Juliana in Mango Square but maybe now it is called Club Hype. Not sure. My guys there liked going to ICON (in Central Cebu City) and OQTAGON (further out in Mandaue City). Both get going about 10pm and used to close at 5am. All are MIXED crowds.

I'm staying in Waterfront 5 star  casino expensive  at 3000 pesos a night !

But they have great gym & sauna inside 

Today I walked the alayne shopping centre , many cute guys smiled at me ,many farangs and gay ones too ,I sat at a bar called the "Social" outside bar which seems to have a lot of gay farangs 

I think it's better to travel solo next time, my Filipino bf seems to only like air conditioning shopping malls etc as in his words "it's too hot" to go walking 

I like to walk & explore so in some ways I wish to be by myself .

Unfortunately the gay scene is not in your face here in Cebu as in Pattaya ,not sure what Angeles City is like but that will be my next stop.

Cebu is ok for tourism activities I guess, mountains, water snorkeling etc ,I'm not into that , would I come back to Cebu ?

Probably not , but I will keep exploring Phillipines,so far I have done Manila, General Santos City,Davao , Cebu , out of that Manila was my favourite.

But I still have Angeles City to go ,so will see if any gay scene there next week

I'd like to know more about PH gogo bars.

I didn't bother going to any of them.  

1  From what I've read, they are full of bigger more muscular guys, not my type.    Any web pages or photos on google maps tends to confirm this.

2  Apparently they are much more expensive when it gets to an "off".    Although to be fair, that seems unlikely, for reasons already mentioned.  

3  They tend to be in out of the way locations and also not clustered together, as is typical in Thailand.

 

The phone apps solve all 3 problems.   There was no reason to even think about travelling to the bars unless I had reasonable confidence that the bars would have some boys that interest me.

I don’t think you will find a proper gay scene in Angeles City, but there are plenty of hungry boys on Grindr who want to experience sex with a foreigner.

Hello Z! Yes I agree with all your comments. I only tried the Go Go Bars in Manila and Cagayan de Oro City. The guys were hot but all STR8. And their Fees were USD100 or more. Too much!! The two you gave URLs for are the two I had heard about in Cebu City.

My recommendation would be to find a sweet guy in Grinder or Romeo and take him, and maybe a couple of his friends, out to the Disco. Drink and Dance the night away!! There are also some popular Bars in Cebu. But they are all STR8 and mainly offer music bands. I do not remember any names...

CHEERS!

I don't think you are stupid at all. I try to do some research on transport from the airport before I hit a new city. If I haven't, my priority is to get to my hotel with the minimum of fuss and preferably without changing from one mode of transport to another. I'd have happily paid $10 extra for an air con Mercedes if I was not sure about taxis and the possibility of taxi scams. But I'm glad you're settling in and hope you will have great trip.

Excellent report! I am a Pinoy living in Sydney. I've been visiting Manila almost every year for 20 years. My go-to place to meet hot Pinoys is the gay bars with gogo boys. At least you get to see the goods and they are usually hot and nice looking. However when you 'table' a guy, some bars have a strict policy of no-touching inappropriately and the boys will get in trouble if they were caught doing it or allowing a client to do it to them. At least that's what one of the boys told me. It was a rip off because you pay a lot of money on their food and drinks and all you're allowed to do is talk to them. And they are not good conversationalist. I asked the manager that I want to take one of the boys to my hotel, she told me I have to pay a bar fine of 2,500 pesos + whatever the boy want, and their asking price is at least 10K.. so total 12,500 pesos. That's like AUD350. On top of that, the manager wanted a tip also!

I never got lucky on Grindr. When they found out that I'm also a Pinoy, theyre not interested. When I offered a 'reward', a few responded wanting an amount ranging from 2,000 pesos  to 10,000 pesos. I set up a meeting with a 21-yo student who looks nice in the picture and is ok with 1,000 pesos plus tip if I like his performance but when he arrived he's so effeminate and did not look anything like his pictures. I gave him what I thought was a 1,000-peso note but was only 100 pesos. It was an honest mistake and didn't mean to rip him off but I'm glad I did in a way because he wasted my time.

YET when I created a fake profile of a 40-something fit white Aussie dad....I got inundated! Typical pinoys, lol...

I guess what I wanted to say is, the Philippines may be an easier place to travel due to locals' knowledge of the English language compared to Thailand but it's easier for me to get my sex in Thailand than in my homeland.

I've only been to Manila one time....was glad I went, but haven't had the urge to go back. these posts have piqued my interest though in giving it another try.

I remember years ago when I was talking to a guy that had traveled extensively all over Asia.....he said, why do gays keep looking for the pot of gold, when it's right in front of them (Thailand). Makes sense for Asia....same goes for Brasil for latins....

Why do gays keep looking for pit of gold ...When it's right in front of them? ( Thailand)

Well answer to your question for me is .  I think Filipino boys are hotter than Thais, Filipino are more manly for me and often more muscular plus many have more chocolate smooth type skin,larger percentage are tops rather than girlish , that's what I experience anyway 

With Thailand it's more money boys it seems and mostly girlish bottom types 

I stand here in the street watching young guys go by here in the Philippines and they are all dressed nice, so many handsome guys ,I see more here in Phillipines that are my type

We all have different reasons.   I went to the Philippines because I like to occasionally go to a different country. 

On average, I prefer Thai, Lao & Khmer lads to Filipinos, but there are so many Filipinos, I can still find ones I like on the apps.   Then, when I did find them, they tended to be good in bed.
