Charming Cebu

Cebu is the fastest growing metropolis outside of Metro Manila. Located in the middle of the Visayas, the island is a commercial hub that contains the country’s second international airport, which is the most important transport facility in the Visayas and Mindanao. Cebu is also a center of the shipping industry, with 80% of the country’s shipping industry based in this “Queen City”.

Although known popularly as a cosmopolitan arena for business and industry, Cebu is also known to offer travelers a great escape from city life. The province is replete with white-sand beaches that never fail to attract tourists and locals alike. Neighboring islands are a popular destination for beach-lovers, and the nearby island of Mactan is a favorite among people who want to experience the sun and surf without going too far away from the city. The mountains are equally distant from the city, and Cebu has a host of lookout points and bars that offer a fantastic view.

Quick Facts about Cebu

Cebu was discovered by Ferdinand Magellan who, having sailed into the harbor of Mactan, was slain by Lapu-Lapu, the cheiftain of Mactanisland. Years later, the Spanish conquistadors returned and established it as the seat of Christianity in the Philippines. What once was a fishing village and busy trading port in 1521 has evolved into a highly urbanized metropolitan center which now serves as a focal point of growth and development in southern Philippines. Up until today, Cebu is still referred to as the “Queen City of the SOuth.”

Three million people reside in the province of Cebu. The main language is Cebuano, although a fairly good number of locals can speak conversational English as well as Filipino. Cebuanos can be quite friendly and hospitable, but most are known to be very economical in their spending.

The weather in Cebu is best from December to May, when it isn’t wet or too hot. The coolest period is from December to February, the hottest from March until May.

How to Get There

Cebu is 365 miles south of Manila. To get there, one can either take the plane or boat. Local airlines fly there several times daily. Traveling by air takes one hour. Taking the boat is takes one hour. Taking the boat is generally less expensive, but the trip takes about 20 hours aboard a local cruise liner or slowboat. The popular domestic airlines are Philippine Airlines, Cebu Pacific and Air Philippines. International airlines also fly to and from the Mactan International Airport. Supperferry and Sulpicio Lines are the bigger slowboats that sail to Cebu almost everyday. Arrival is at the port of Cebu in the North Reclamation Area of the city. For trips outside Cebu. fastcafts are available for journeys to neighboring islands and provinces.
