Cebu

One of the most developed and populated provinces in the Philippines, the island of Cebu is conveniently located in Central Visayas as a major trading port and the site of rapidly emerging industries in the country. Cebu is known for being one of the hottest destinations in the Philippines, making up for more than thirty percent of the country’s international travellers.

Cebu province’s capital city of the same name is the perfect hybrid of the urban and the rural, the past and the present, the local and the foreign. Throughout the years, Cebu City has been dubbed as the Philippines’ “Queen City of the South” being the regional center for economy, education, among many other things. A busy city by day, nightlife hotspot by night, and an all-around premier destination, Cebu City will always have one preoccupied.

Behold as all the excitement does not stop in Metro Cebu. One must make it a point to experience Mactan Island’s pristine white-sand beaches, Oslob’s marvellous whale shark encounter, Sumilon Island’s solitude, Badian’s adventurous canyoneering, Moalboal and Malapascua Island’s superb diving, and many more.

Cebu’s historical tale will also leave one astonished. Being the first Spanish settlement in the Philippines, Cebu is proud to have numerous heritage spots such as the oldest street in the country or Colon Street, the cross planted by Portuguese explorer Fernão de Magalhães as he first landed in the Philippine soil better known as the Magellan’s Cross, and the site of what is considered to be the first organized resistance of Philippine natives against foreign invaders known as the Battle of Mactan, to name a few.

Whether one may be a history buff, an ocean-lover, a peaceful sojourner, or has a soft spot for sightseeing, Cebu is the place to be as it has so many things to offer for the wanderlust.
