I Love Cebu Travel Fair: Paving the Way for A Getaway Full of Firsts

Bantayan Island in Cebu

I Love Cebu Travel Fair

Besides being a marvelous place of refuge and rest, Cebu is an exquisite place to experience many firsts.

Proudly hailed as The Queen City of the South, it is perhaps the oldest city in the Philippines, but it has proved to be aging gracefully. Looking back on the period of the historical birth of Christianity that has sprawled all over the country and comparing it to today’s era of developments, the time has proven again and again that Cebu is a locus of endless growth.

It is one of the more sought-after islands in the Philippines. One of the contributing factors would be the Mactan International Airport – known to be the second busiest airport in the country. Direct flights to Cebu are available in some countries, and tourists, both local or international, can come directly via air or sea.

In this long and narrow island, mountains and seas converge, and tranquil coastal areas and a booming metropolis coexist. What is even more exciting in experiencing Cebu are its naturally innate and unique paradise experiences.

If it is heights that excite you, numerous mountains can trek within Cebu, perfect for beginners and even more experienced trekkers. The Osmena Peak in Dalaguete, Cebu’s highest peak, is only a 3-hour drive from the city. Drive down south for an hour more and get to feel the exhilarating thrill of flying by paragliding in Oslob.

In any case, Cebu is best known for its beautiful blues. In the very same town, the wonderful town that is Oslob dwells the majestic whale sharks. Swimming with these gentle giants is definitely an experience of a lifetime. Awe-inspiring diving spots are also the pride of Cebu. Up north are the beautiful white sand beaches of Camotes, Malapascua, Bantayan, and many more.

Near the metropolis is Lapu-Lapu City, dubbed as the Historic Resort City. Here you can find a strip of resorts, ranging from mid to highly acclaimed ones, but all offering their very own savoir-faire.
