教你如何搭乘吉普尼(Jeepney)遊逛宿霧市購物中心

 

宿霧市(Cebu City)有幾間還不錯逛的購物中心,各具特色。如果想逛街時,偶而搭一下計程車,無傷大雅。但是,若出門總以計程車代步,假以時日那真是很傷荷包。

 

本文教你,如何搭乘吉普尼(Jeepney)遊逛這些宿霧市較有名的購物中心。

 

1. 阿雅拉購物中心(Ayala Center)

 

阿雅拉購物中心(Ayala Center)應該可以算是宿霧市中心最聚集人氣的購物中心了吧,那裡也是南來北往的吉普尼匯集地。除了用餐、娛樂,當然許多人去那最重要的目的就是購物逛街。

 

阿雅拉購物中心(Ayala Center)的知名商店有:

【服飾店、美妝店】Bossini、Esprit、FILA、Guess、Levi's、Mango、Marks & Spencer、Topshop、Van Heusen、Vans、THE BODY SHOP、THE FACE SHOP、Watsons、Healthy Options

【鞋店】Celine、Hush Puppies、Converse、CHARLES & KEITH、PUMA、NINE WEST、Timberland、Skechers

【童裝與兒童遊戲區】Guess Kids、My Playroom、Tamiya

【咖啡廳、麵包點心】Dunkin Donuts、Goldilocks、Red Ribbon、Starbucks

【餐廳】Café Laguna、Casa Verde、Gerry's Grill、Hukad、Mooon Café、Pizza Hut、Shakeys、TGI Friday's、The Dessert Factory

 

可以到Ayala Center的吉普尼有:

04L、06H、12L、13B、13C、14D、20A、20B、62B、62C

 

2. SM City

 

SM City宿霧市最大的購物中心,靠近宿霧港,往機場方向的計程車幾乎都會經過。這裡可以讓你足足逛上一天,可能還逛不完。想大肆採購什麼南北雜貨,這裡應有盡有,只是你必須負擔比其他購物中心多一點的價格。

 

基本上,阿雅拉購物中心(Ayala Center)有的品牌,SM City也都會有。但是,SM City有的店,其他的購物中心就不一定會有了。

 

可以到SM City的吉普尼有:

01K、04L、06H、12G、12I、21A、21D、22D、24、25

 

3. 羅賓生百貨(Robinsons Place)

 

談到羅賓生百貨(Robinsons Place),知道的遊客應該就比較少了。會去那兒逛的觀光客應該不會有吧!不過,住在皇冠酒店(Crown Regency)的遊客應該就會去走走,羅賓生百貨就位在往下城區方向的圓環旁。和阿雅拉購物中心(Ayala Center)以及SM City相比,羅賓生百貨算是小兒科.它的百貨樓層只有1至3層,地下一樓是超級市場。

 

但是,Robinsons Place有一個吸引人之處,那就是全年度都有不同商品做折扣。也許是因為缺乏人氣,所以就以促銷折扣招攬消費者。有時候,花點時間好好找,還真能挖到寶、找到物超所值的服飾呢!

 

可以到Robinsons Place的吉普尼有:

04B、04H、06B、06C、14D、17B、17C、17D

 

宿霧市吉普尼票價

 

一般吉普尼的起價是7披索,遠程票價則為10批索。上車後或是下車前,將車資往前傳給司機即可。如果吉普尼車門有掛人,手指夾滿20披索紙鈔的,通常他就是收錢的人當地話叫做 Konduktor,這時就把車資給他即可。

 

搭乘吉普尼方法

 

  • 先準備零錢或是小鈔。 因為吉普尼司機一邊開車、一邊注意有沒有人要上車,另外,還要忙著找錢。所以,坐吉普尼之前,最好先準備好零錢。

  • 所有的吉普尼車身都會寫上車號、起迄點以及會經過的重要站名。上車前,先看好是不是你要搭的吉普尼。

  • 若是不清楚吉普尼是否會到你想要的地方,上車前先問清楚,吉普尼司機和乘客都會很熱心地告訴你。

  • 付車資之前,最好告訴司機你要去的地方,這樣快到時,司機會提醒你;此外,他也知道需不需要找你錢。

  • 如果抵達目的地,要下車,可以敲敲車頂,或是說「Lugar lang」(下車的意思)。

  • 隨時注意你的貴重物品及包包。

 

 

 

Roaming Around Cebu

 

In visiting places, we look forward to a lot of things. Some may look for a quiet getaway, others look for potential business opportunities, while others may just want to roam around looking for something interesting. Whatever purpose you might have, the thrill of discovering something new is always there.

 

A favorite haunt of locals and visitors alike here in Cebu are the numerous malls you can find around the area. Ayala Center Cebu, SM City Cebu, SM Consolacion, Crossroads Mall Banilad, Banilad Town Center, Gaisano Country Mall, Pacific Mall Mandaue, Elizabeth Mall, J Centre Mall, JY Square Mall and Robinsons Place Cebu are just some of the most visited malls in Cebu. Visiting these malls are quite easy. You just need to ride a jeepney (jeep) whose route passes by these malls. May it be for shopping, dining, entertainment or simply to pass the time away, these malls are frequented by people looking for a good time and maybe even shop a few souvenirs here and there.

 

Ayala Center Cebu is one of the most visited and loved mall here in Cebu. Located in the city center, it has been a haven for people of all ages who love shopping, dining, and quality entertainment. Local and internationally popular shops and restaurants are abound that you would have a hard time choosing which one you'd want to visit first. Not only that, one of the charms of Ayala Center Cebu is that it incorporates the beauty of nature to the modern facilities of the mall. The mall has a manicured lawn where people can just chill out and sit on the grass or near the fountain. At night, this area is lit up by enchanting Christmas lights during Christmas season. Furthermore, there is also an open air rooftop garden in the uppermost floors where some of the restaurants are located.

SM City Cebu is another favorite place for people to hang out and do shopping. Located in the North Reclamation Area, Cebu City 6000, Metro Cebu, it is bigger than Ayala Center Cebu but they don't have gardens like Ayala does and all their facilities are inside the mall. Despite that people still love visiting SM City Cebu specially when they want to watch movies in their IMAX Theater. This mall also offers a wide choice of shops, boutiques and restaurants. Aside from that, during New Year or New Year's Eve the mall usually hosts a fireworks display or fireworks competition.

SM Consolacion is another branch of SM City Cebu but located in the municipality of Consolacion. There are malls in which you have to ride two jeepneys to get there, depending on your location. Don't be afraid to ask the driver of the jeepney for directions and which jeep to take. You can also see the places that the jeepney will go to printed on the body of the jeep.

 

Jeepneys you can ride:

Banilad Town Center is found in Banilad, Mandaue and offers many shops, restaurants and boutiques. The jeeps are not allowed to stop directly in front of the mall so you have to walk for a little bit to get there. Crossroads Mall Banilad usually offers restaurants and bars and is located in the same area.

 

Jeepneys you can ride:

13C, 62C, 13B, 62B

 

Gaisano Country Mall is located in the Banilad area. Like all malls, Gaisano Country Mall has restaurants and department stores where you can buy a lot of stuff for incredible prices. This mall also has a jeepney terminal where loading and unloading of passengers is directly in front of the mall.

Jeepneys are the most convenient way in traveling around Cebu and the minimum fare is Php7.00 for the first 5 kilometers and may increase with Php1.00 for every kilometer traveled. Just give your fare to the driver or the driver's assistant (konduktor) and they can tell you how much the fare is.

 

Here are a few tips to help you out when it comes to transportation:

 

  • It's better to have small denominations of money with you for easier transaction.

  • Don't be scared in asking for directions and which jeepney could take you there. Most of the locals are friendly and will be able to help.

  • In hailing for a jeepney, just put one hand in front of you and wave it a little bit to signal the driver that you want to ride the jeepney.

  • In paying for the fair, say your destination so that the driver will know how much to get from your money.

  • If you have already arrived at your destination and you wish the jeepney to stop, say “Lugar lang”. It's how you signal the driver in the Cebuano dialect that you wish to get off the jeepney.

  • Keep your valuables inside your bag for safe keeping and keep an eye on your belongings.
