Unlike Manila, which provides a metropolitan flavour and excitement to its visitors, Cebu is a testament to the rich history and culture that this country has.

Cebu is also a hotspot for great sandy beaches and resorts. And what better way to unwind from the hustles and bustles of Manila than to bathe in the sun on the beaches of Cebu?
