Tourist Spots in Cebu: Heritage and Resort Destination


Cebu has been known as the "Queen City of the South" and  was the oldest city in the country. Rich with beautiful attractions and cultural heritage, no wonder it's been one of the most famous and visited city in the Philippines. People in Cebu are called "Cebuanos" and speak Cebuano, similar with the Dabawenyo's dialect but just differ in intonation and accent. Cebuanos are extremely proud of their cultural and historical heritage, a legacy which has endured through the centuries, from the time Ferdinand Magellan planted the cross on Cebu's shore. Cebu comprises of 6 cities: Cebu, Danao, Lapu-lapu, Mandaue, Toledo and Talisay; and 47 smaller towns.
Today, the island province leads in traditional and non-traditional exports and has the highest economic growth rate anywhere in the country. Likewise, recent indications pointed out that Cebu has become the country's most favorite tourist destination.

In contrast to the bustling metropolis, the rest of Cebu's 167 islets and island are line with idyllic white sandy beaches and pristine clear waters. Cebu has gained wide popularity for fantastic diving grounds evidenced by the proliferation of resorts which offer luxurious accommodations, excellent dive facilities and the services of competent dive masters and dive guides.

My Travels and Interests in Life

I just decided to change my old blogger's name ("My Travels") to "My Travels and Interests in Life". Upon pondering about it many times, i came up into a decision to rename it. The old blog title was so limited. How about my other interests in life?Should i make a new blog for it? Well, maybe it would be the best idea but for some reason it may not for me. Turning it to more complex title will extend the topic more broader about my life. This way, i could no longer need another blog. So, i do hope people who are following me would still keep in touch with me. It's not just about my travels but i'm going to open up my whole life in here.
