Welcome to Cebu City

Cebu City is an excellent tourist destination. It is often called as the "Queen City of the South" and considered the oldest. You will encounter a rich historic past as you explore Cebu. No wonder, the local people are proud of their historical and cultural heritage.

Cebu is a progressive city and became an urbanized metropolitan centre and serves as the focal point of growth and development in Southern Philippines. Cebu, Danao, Lapu-Lapu, Mandaue, Toledo, and Talisay are the cities of this southern part.

Cebu has become a favourite tourist destination. White sandy beaches and clear water has gained wide popularity for a fantastic diving facilities.

Based on my recent trip to this city, you have to allow at least 3 days of stay to be able to see all the many historical sites, the beaches, and meet the friendly local people.

Come along, let us discover Cebu City one more time. Before we do this, spend few minutes and find out the attractions I am talking about by checking my tips and recommendation. It will help you a lot if you do.

    I read Cebu has an old section. Can you describe it and what I'll find there?

    Cebu guitars should be well promoted and supported.

    Great that you had a thorough tour of Cebu City with a competent guide. Seems like there is a lot to see and do there. I have never been to Cebu City even though my daughter lived and worked there for quite a while.

    I'm hoping to make it to Cebu very soon. Lapu Lapu sounds interesting. How many days do you think it sufficient to have a relaxing time here?

    Great work Freddie 18! This is really handy as a guideline....encouraged by your tips. Is the driver/ van fairly reasonable (cost)? Cheers...
