Travel Tips from people who've been to Cebu City
Ok, Cebu is by itself a vast collection of little magical spots to visit, is not Boracay the most famous beach on Asia but you will find it cheaper, more local, and kind of secret if you choose to get out of the tracks, still with most people able to talk in English as most of PH. Well the biggest and only real mall is SM Ayala near the Marriott, You will find good food, supplies and mingle with local. You can also get good deals on full day vehicle rent with driver. My advice take a tour to Topps by yourself, don't go alone since you will love the place and is better to get there to enjoy the view with some locals, get to know some people first at the City Hall mingle a little in PH is never hard to find new friends, Is the closest I have found in the world to the latino welcoming. There is a lot of italian and Pinoy restaurant, nightlife as usual is vibrant and perhaps one of the best price/values places ever.
The City of Cebu is the capital of Cebu in the Philippines and is the second most important metropolitan center in the country. The city lies on the eastern shore of the island of Cebu and is the first Spanish settlement in the country. It is the country's main domestic shipping hub and is home to more than 80% of the country's inter-island shipping companies.There are a number of commercial establishments in the city, the most popular of which are the SM City and Ayala Center malls. Marco Polo landmarcs....
Be sure to take advantage of all of the little islands around Cebu, which have beautiful beaches but not so many tourists. If you like diving or snorkeling there are lots of great places to go--but plan in advance with a travel agent because lack of organization can make planning inside of Cebu quite confusing if you don't speak the local dialect or are being escorted everywhere by a local.
