Naga… Minglanilla.. These places have become somewhat synonymous to every travelers nightmare – traffic. True story, I went to Tuyan Naga one time to visit a relative and on the way to Cebu City, I got stuck in traffic for nearly 2 hours before reaching Minglanilla proper. That’s barely 4km and nearly 2 hours!

In one word, DEADLY. That’s how the traffic in these 2 places alone can be.

Thankfully, the Naga-Danao super highway is now underway! When this gets done, hopefully, travelling from Naga to Danao, nearly 74km in total distance, will only be about an hour. Something that can usually take 4 hours or more.
