There's a lot more in Cebu than what you can imagine. So go, explore and experience!
A trip to the Philippines would not be complete without stepping your feet into the grounds of Cebu City. This land reigns as the Queen City of the South and is considered to be the oldest city in the Philippines. Cebu is among the fastest growing cities in the Philippines jam-packed with all the advancements of a modern city. It is a home to many historical wonders, thrilling activities, and delectable cuisines.
Like all parts of the Philippines, Cebu has its own background and history. The unforgettable colonization of the Spaniards has strongly influenced the religious faith of the land. It is when the people of Cebu first embraced and welcomed Roman Catholicism. To celebrate this event, Cebuanos held their annual festival famously known as the Sinulog Festival to honor and worship Señor Santo Niño de Cebú (Lord Holy Child of Cebu). Solemn procession, upbeat dance parade and exciting activities are done during the event. Thousands of tourists, both local and foreign, come to Cebu to witness this annual celebration.
