Cebu: What to see and what to try

April 14, 2014 Mango Tours 0 Comments


Cebu City, the Philippines’ oldest city is also one of the country’s leading metros. However, despite its booming economic status, this city of contrasts blends well with history, culture, and contemporary attractions.

Since Cebu is the first Spanish settlement in the Philippines, it boasts of several historic landmarks. See the famed Magellan’s Cross, get a glimpse of the historic Basilica del Sto. Nino - home to the renowned religious image of the child Jesus, and visit the Fort San Pedro

There’s a lot more to Cebu than its city. Take the road less traveled. Discover the vast sugarcane plantation of Borbon and Bogo. Take a moment and offer a prayer at the Shrine of Miraculous Medalla Milagrosa in Lapaz, Bogo. Looking for a variety of local products and goodies, the Bogo Local Market is the place to go. Make a stop along the road and try the famous local delicacy of Cebu – the budbud kabog, specially made by Bud-Bud Kabog Vendors of Brgy. Lugo of Borbon.
