WELCOME TO CEBU

 

Among the cluster of islands and islets in the Visayas, one province stands out: Cebu. The island is 587 km south of Manila and is the second international gateway to the Philippines. A city in the midst of overwhelming growth, Cebu blends its ancestral heritage and modern business savvy with flair. Crowned as the Queen City of the South, Cebu stands as the country's top business and tourist destination. It is here where business and leisure breathe together with office buildings and beach resorts finding its own place under Cebu's friendly skies.

A bustling trade port since pre-Hispanic times, Cebu was named the country's capital by the Spaniards in 1565. Since then, Cebu has maintained its stature as the center of trade and commerce in Southern Philippines. However, Cebu is more than just a city of increasing sophistication. With its colorful past, the city still retains much of its provincial warmth and charm. Indeed, apart from its numerous man-made landmarks and institutions, Cebu also features miles and miles of forest greens - a haven to wildlife and the place for a perfect picnic. There's the 15,393 hectare Central Cebu National Park, the 696 hectare Sudion National Park, the Cawasan Falls and the Bolok-Bolok Mineral Springs, Nearby Mactan Island boasts of world-class beach resorts.


The sightseeing options at Cebu is absolutely endless. A day is not enough to explore the many joys of the Queen City of the South. The mystic Magellan's Cross planted by Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan on the very spot where the first Filipinos were baptized; the bronze statue of Lapu-Lapu, the first Filipino leader to resist Spanish attempts of colonization and is revered to this day; the Basilica Minore del Santo Nino which houses the oldest religious relic in the country.

Cebu offers many possibilities for sports and recreation: golf, tennis, cockfighting, watersports like scuba diving, windsurfing, sailing, boating, swimming, snorkeling, waterskiing, jet skiing, shopping, good food and entertainment.


For the island-hopper, Cebu is one exciting playground for daring expeditions. Aqua sports top the list of what to do. For scuba diving, the best dives are found in the islands of Mactan, Moalboal and Camotes. The calm waters surrounding Argao, Badian and Malapascua islands are ideal for kayaking.


Getting There

The fastest way to reach Cebu is by plane. Cebu is an international destination with flights from Singapore, Hong Kong, Malaysia, Japan, Taiwan and South Korea. Arrival is at the Mactan International Airport almost daily. From Manila, Cebu is just an hour away by plane and 22 hours by boat. It is an ideal jump-off point for other tourist attractions in Visayas and Mindanao.


 

CEBU CITY DAY TOUR WITH THE FIRST YELLOW SUBMARINE EXPERIENCE

Cebu Yellow Submarine is Cebu's newest tourist destination. The first submarine in the Philippines and can accommodate up to 48 passengers at a time. Built in Antwep, Belgium. In 40years of operating history, there have been NOT a single injury or fatality to any passenger, therefore, statistically it's the safest form of transportation in the world today. It will travel 300 to 500 meters away from the shoreline and though it can go as deep as 100 meters below the surface, but operators decided not to go beyond 35meters to ensure safety of its passengers. The submarine has been at the Imperial Palace Waterpark Resort and Spa in Maribago, Lapu-Lapu City as one of its concessionaires.
