About Cebu, Philippines:
One of Philippines’ most popular destinations, the Queen City of the South is the hub of amazing beaches and colourful festivals. Historic Cebu City is famed for Magellan’s Cross, marking the spot where the colonisers started their mission to spread Christianity in the islands. Close to the spot, the massive annual Sinulog festival honours the Santo Niño, a revered image of the child Jesus. Heritage spots such as ancestral houses are aplenty—start with Casa Gorordo—but don’t forget to enjoy the fresh mangoes and seafood. Shopping for great finds is easy, as you can go down Colon Street, Ayala Center and SM City and find whatever you need. Cebuanos are outgoing people, so nightlife and live music are big in Cebu. You can have custom-made guitars and furniture from Mandaue, aside from many export-quality goods such as fashion accessories. Soak up the sun on the islands of Malapascua and Bantayan, with spots like Sugar Beach and Paradise Beach for a good tan and a pleasant beach ball match. If you still dance to the beat of Bob Marley’s “Buffalo Soldier” and “No Woman, No Cry”, then you will definitely love Cebu Reggae Fest, an annual two-day event comprising live reggae performances by artists and enthusiasts. For close encounters with the world’s largest mammal, the whale shark, head to Oslob. From perfect diving spots, and rich wildlife to the friendly people and stunning views, it’s more fun in Cebu! http://www.airasia.com/ph/en/cheap-flights/philippines/flights-to-cebu.page
