What to See in Cebu?

When you visit Bohol province and have extra day or two, spend it exploring the neighboring city, Cebu.

These are the places we've visited for just a day. We started at 8:00am and finished at 4:00pm. If your flight is not until late evening, you still have enough time to explore the resorts at Mactan Island.
