Cebu is the most progressive province in the Visayas Islands and plays a vital role in the country's economic and cultural growth. Its capital, Cebu City, is a major trade and commerce center while its towns and municipalities are some of the premier destinations for both local and international tourists.  Cebu has everything a traveler would want to see in a destination—natural wonders, impressive attractions, a mix of cultural influences, and a vibrant city life.

Cebu's biggest attraction is undoubtedly the Sinulog Festival, held every third week of January in Cebu City. Sinulog is celebrated to honor the country's acceptance of the Catholic faith and the Sto. Niño, the child Jesus Christ, and one of the most recognized religious images in the Philippines. Cebu City becomes lively with parades, dance competitions, street parties, concerts, bazaars, and many more.

Even after the Sinulog Festival, the major attractions in Cebu continue to attract visitors. The iconic Magellan's Cross is one of the most visited landmarks in the province. The cross was planted by the Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan when he arrived in Cebu on 1521. Near the landmark is the Basilica del Santo Niño, a minor basilica and home to some of the oldest religious artifacts in the country, which includes the Santo Niño de Cebu.

Cebu also offers a once in a lifetime adventure in the quiet town of Oslob. Its waters are inhabited by the gigantic butanding or whale sharks, the gentle giants of the sea. Tourists can watch them from boats but snorkeling and diving near these friendly sea creatures are also permitted.  



By Air
Cebu is one of the country’s top tourist destinations in the Central Visayas Region and one of the most developed provinces in the Philippines. Just like Metro Manila, the most convenient and fastest way to get there is to travel by air.

Air travels to Cebu are served by Mactan – Cebu International Airport (MCIA), located on the island of Mactan, about 15 kilometers away from Cebu City. Currently, Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific, AirAsia, Cathay Pacific, Emirates, Asiana Airlines, and EVA Air are some of the airlines that fly in and out MCIA. A Manila-Cebu flight lasts for approximately 80 minutes. Flying in from Cagayan de Oro is about 45 minutes, while it takes around 65 minutes from Davao City.
 

By Sea
Traveling to Cebu by sea is also possible since Cebu City has the nation’s busiest seaport. From Manila, Cebu is approximately 23 hours by ferry, while around half a day from Cagayan De Oro. 2GO Travel, Philippine Span Asia, and Weesam Express are some of the shipping companies that offer ferry trips to Cebu.

 
How to Get Around
The more convenient way to go around Cebu is via taxi. The flag down rate is PHP 30.00, with an additional PHP 3.50 for every succeeding 500 meters or 90 seconds waiting time. Public jeepneys are also another option, with the base fare starting at only PHP 7.00.

Buses are another popular means of land transport in the province, especially when going to the towns of Moalboal and Oslob. After a bus or a cab ride to Maya, you can take a 30-minute boat ride to the island of Malapascua.

For a more affordable way of getting around the province, you can also take the jeepney or tricycle, which are widely available in the major cities. Meanwhile, ridesharing services like Grab and Uber are available in Metro Cebu.

What to See
Landmarks
Cebu boasts a rich and wonderful history, culture, and tradition and is blessed with breathtaking natural wonders that will surely make you fall in love with everything that it has to offer.

The Basilica Minore del Santo Niño should be the first stop of your tour of Cebu. Located in the heart of Cebu City, the Basilica is the country’s oldest Roman Catholic Church, having been established in 1565 by Miguel Lopez de Legazpi, a Spanish explorer who established the Spanish occupation in the Philippines that lasted for over three hundred years. The Basilica houses the original Santo Niño statue that was given by Ferdinand Magellan to the wife of Rajah Humabon in 1521.

Magellan’s Cross is right across the Basilica and is another landmark in the province that attracts hundreds of tourists daily. The large wooden cross inside the octagonal structure encloses what is left of the original cross that Ferdinand Magellan planted on the island almost 500 years ago. Aside from the cross, the ceiling of the shrine displays a fascinating painting that depicts Magellan planting the cross.

Another notable attraction, Fort San Pedro is also located in Cebu City. This military defense structure was built in the 17th century by the Spanish conquistadors in order to repel attacks from Muslim raiders. This triangular military fort is said to be the oldest in the country. The corners have bastions, each named La Concepcion, Ignacio de Loyola, and San Miguel. The fort allows visitors to learn more about the city’s history while having an ideal spot to admire the beautiful Cebu sunset.

The Yap-Sandiego Ancestral House is one of the country’s oldest wooden houses, having been built in the 18th century. The house, which is furnished with various antique pieces, gives visitors an idea of what it’s like to live during the colonial period. Not far from the house is the Cebu Heritage Monument, created made by Philippine National Artist Edgardo Castrillo and briefly narrates the history of Cebu.

The valiant Lapu-Lapu, who defeated Magellan and his soldiers in the Battle of Mactan, is honored in a shrine built on Mactan Island. The Mactan Shrine, also called the Lapu-Lapu Shrine, is a bronze statue of the native leader to symbolize his bravery in defeating the conquerors.

And high up in Beverly Hills in Cebu City, the Taoist Temple treats its visitors to colorful structures and an amazing view of the city and the nearby seas. The temple also serves as the center of Taoism in the city and is a place where the teachings of Lao Tse were well preserved. Just like any holy place of worship, proper decorum and respect are expected from the visitors who go to the temple.

Natural Attractions
When it comes to natural wonders, the province of Cebu certainly won’t disappoint. For starters, Mactan Island is famous for its pristine waters, impressive white sand beaches, and dive sites that continue to attract a number of diving enthusiasts from all over the world.

Malapascua Island is located on the northeastern part of Cebu that has been gaining a lot of attention from tourists, both local and international. This tiny island is home to impressive white sand beaches that is almost akin to paradise. Camotes Island and Badian Island, like Malapascua, are ideal destinations for those who simply want to enjoy the sun, sand, and sea. Make sure to visit the Kawasan Falls in Badian, which is perfect for a refreshing swim after a thrilling trek. Sumilon Island, however, is undoubtedly the most popular diving spot in the whole Visayas region. The view from beneath its crystal clear waters is nothing short of stunning.

The Olango Island is home to Olango Wildlife Sanctuary. 1,030 hectares of sand flats and mangroves cover the island and is most notable for the migratory birds that visit the place, especially during the peak seasons from October to November and February to March.

Fan corals, reef fishes, and other sea creatures will capture your attention as you embark on yet another diving experience in the quaint town of Moalboal in southwestern Cebu.  The quiet and sleepy town of Oslob is also famous for diving because of its whale sharks, though this activity comes with great caution.

Events and Festivals
The province of Cebu has quite a number of festivals that it celebrates yearly. There’s the Rosquillos Festival in Liloan, Dinagat Festival in Crodova, Banig Festival in Badian, Inasal Festival in Talisay, and the Kadaugan sa Mactan in Lapu-Lapu, just to name a few. But the mother of all festivals in the province is definitely the Sinulog Festival, which is held every January in honor of the Santo Niño. Street parties, various events, and bazaars can be enjoyed all over Cebu City during this grand feast.

Man-Made Attractions
There’s no better way to learn about the history, the arts, the culture, and the tradition of Cebu than by visiting the many museums around the province. Museo Sugbo is one of them. Built in 1871 to serve as a prison, Museum Sugbo now houses valuable artifacts that speak of the Cebuano heritage. There are also galleries that depict events during the Spanish and American periods, and World War II.

The University of San Carlos Museum is where you’ll find archaeological discoveries—ethnic art, ancient boat coffins, and even botanical and zoological specimens. The Casa Gorordo Museum, meanwhile, offers a glimpse into the life and times of the Filipino people from the year 1860 to 1920. The Rizal Memorial Library and Museum, with its striking pre-World War II building architecture, is a public library where important and rare books about Cebu’s heritage are stored. Antique pieces, sculptures, paintings, and other artifacts by prominent Cebuano families are displayed as well. And speaking of impressive structures, the Cebu Provincial Capitol Building boasts an impressive architecture that is truly picture-perfect.

Exciting activities await thrill seekers right in the heart of Cebu City. The Crown Regency Hotel and Towers in Cebu City features the Sky Experience Adventure where guests can enjoy thrilling rides such as the Edge Coaster, Tower Walk, Urban Zipline, and the Vertical Climb. All activities are done at an altitude of almost 473 feet.
 

Where to Eat and Shop
For shopaholics, Cebu City has numerous establishments where you will enjoy browsing for any item you need. SM City Cebu, the 4th largest shopping mall in the Philippines, is right in the heart of Metro Cebu, while not too far away is the Ayala Center Cebu. The Cebu IT Park is also one of the favorite hubs for dining and recreation, apart from it being home to some of the city’s biggest IT and BPO companies. Restaurants, bars, cafes, and even wellness centers are available all over the IT Park.

Of course, your trip to Cebu won’t be complete without trying out the local cuisine and delicacies.

Larsian is home to enjoy pocket-friendly yet incredibly delicious street food which is best eaten with rice wrapped in palm leaves known as puso. Sutukil, which is wordplay on the words sugba (grill), tula (broth), and kilaw (raw), and is another must-try when in Cebu. And of course, don’t miss out on Cebu Lechon, perhaps the most famous food offering in the province. For restaurants, be sure to check out CnT Lechon, Zubuchon, Casa Verde, and La Vie Parisienne.

Lastly, don’t leave Cebu empty handed: load up on dried mangoes, Shamrock’s otap, and Titay’s Rosquillos, some of the favorite take home goodies. For music lovers, the quality hand-crafted guitars are both affordable and highly sought-after by musicians all over the country.

Local Weather
Just like anywhere else in the Philippines, Cebu has two types of seasons: wet and dry. The wet season is from November to February, while the rest of year is dry. Northern Cebu, however, experiences rain throughout the entire year. On average, the highest temperature in Cebu reaches 36 degrees Celsius, while the lowest temperature is at 20 degrees Celsius. It’s best to pack light and breathable clothes when going to Cebu. A light jacket or scarf should be enough to keep you warm when the temperatures drop, especially at night.
 

Health
Healthcare facilities are readily available in Cebu, though the more advanced and modern hospitals are mostly found in the city. The towns and rural areas in the outskirts of Cebu have clinics and small-scale hospitals that offer limited services. Similarly, pharmacies also abound especially in the city—some are even open 24/7. But it is highly recommended that you bring your own set of medicines prior to traveling to Cebu, especially if you have certain health conditions.
 

Transportation
You can go around Cebu via public jeepneys and tricycles. Jeepneys and tricycles are open-air vehicles so make sure to bring a handkerchief or face mask to protect yourself from pollution. When riding a taxi, make sure that the driver switches his fare meter on as soon as the journey begins. Do not accept if the driver insists on negotiating a certain price instead of following the price on the meter.
 

Safety
Cebu, in general, is a safe place to visit, but that doesn’t discount the fact that petty crimes tend to happen every now and then. Tourists are expected to always be vigilant and aware of their surroundings, especially in the public and crowded places. As much as possible, avoid using your gadgets in public as this may attract pickpockets. Avoid wearing too much jewelry especially if you are going to crowded places.
