Cebu

Cebu, sometimes called the Queen City of the South, lies at the centre of the Visayas. Sheltered by the other Visayan islands of Negros, Panay, Leyte, Samar and Bohol, this thin sliver of land is blessed year-round with pleasant tropical weather. Locals and visitors can enjoy its pristine, sun drenched beaches, washed by the balmy blue waters of the Cebu and Tanon Straits. A plethora of neighbouring islets fringed with coral and white sand shores add appeal to an island-hopping vacation. Cebu’s attractions do not only cater to the itinerant sun-worshipper or beach-lover. Its cityscapes have their own brand of cosmopolitan charm touched with a unique island warmth. Luxurious accommodations, complete sports facilities, modern shopping malls, fine dining restaurants and lively entertainment centres, including two casinos and sprawling golf fairways, add luster to Cebu’s landscape, offering tourists and business travellers a surfeit of activities to engage in.
