The Philippines are made up of over 7,000 islands but if you are fortunate enough to book flights to Cebu this will take you right into the heart of this fascinating archipelago. It is only in recent years that cheap flights to Cebu have been an option.
Cebu island and the city are at the centre of the cluster of islands known as the Visayas, which are south of Manila, the capital of the country. Catching flights to Cebu will open up a whole new world of beautiful beaches, resorts, coral reefs, and an entrepreneurial spirit, being the third largest city in the Philippines and becoming increasingly cosmopolitan and welcoming.
Being billed as the oldest city in the country means Cebu has a wealth of interesting places to visit including the Santo Nino Basilica and Museum, a devoutly religious building that attracts many pilgrims especially in January for the Sinulog Festival.
The 17th century Fort San Pedro on the coast has been a prison, military barracks, and camp for prisoners of war. There is a museum inside that charts the history of the building. For views of the city, head for either the Taoist Temple on Beverly Hills or Nivel Hill, which is especially atmospheric at night.
Apart from the beach and diving opportunities, Cebu is an up-and-coming shopping centre with three huge malls that double up as local hangouts. On top of one of the hotels is a rollercoaster for those who like spills and thrills, as well as a Sky Walk where you can walk around the outside of the 38-storey high building on a platform.
If you are heading straight for the Visayas, you can now miss out going via Manila and get direct international flights to Cebu.
