Cebu Province

Cebu is named one of the best island destinations in the Indian Ocean-Asia region and in Asia-Pacific by Condé Nast Traveler Magazine. One of the popular destinations in the province is the Mactan Island where the second busiest airport in the country is located. 


Name of Cebu came from the word Sibu, which means, to trade. The province is very rich in history. One of the notable events in the province was the Battle of Mactan.  A battle fought in Mactan before the Spanish colonization.
The oldest Christian figure of the Sto. Nino is enshrined and venerated at the Basilica of Santo Nino. It’s said that this figure was given by the Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan to the wife of Rajah Humabon, the king of Cebu.

 Where to Eat in Cebu?

The province celebrates Sinulog Festival every 3rd Sunday of January. This feast is held in honor of the patron, Senor Santo Nino de Cebu (Lord Holy Child of Cebu) and the arrival of Ferdinand Magellan in the country.
In October 2013, Cebu along with the neighboring province, Bohol, was hit by a 7.2 magnitude earthquake. It’s said to be one of the strongest earthquakes in the country. A lot of historical churches and other tourist attractions were damaged by the earthquake.


You can tour the Metro Cebu in one day, but if you want the best part, like swimming and trying other adventurous and exciting activities, best to stay a night or two.

 
In my own opinion, Cebu City is no different than the cities in Metro Manila. If you want a more relaxing, fun and adventurous activities, visit the others tourist spots outside the city.
