Cebu - Philippines




Cebu and the Philippines are located in SouthEast Asia.

It was in the province of Cebu that Ferdinand Magellan first set foot on Philippine soil back in 1521. Even before the Spaniards came, trade with the Chinese already flourished in the province. Prosperity has continued, and today, Cebu City , known as the "Queen City of the South", has become a thriving, highly urbanized center that comes second only to Manila's bustling metropolis.

Cebu city was recently named the No. 8 Asian city of the future

The locals speak Cebuano - a dialect common in the Visayas and Mindanao region. Filipino (Tagalog) is the national language however, English is widely used.

Only a few minutes away from the city are numerous white sand beaches, crystal blue waters, and swaying palms, making Cebu a perfect destination for both business and leisure. Outside of the city are some of the best scuba diving spots in the world. Mactan Island is a coral island and famous scuba diving and beach site. Malapascua Island is endowed with white sand beaches and crystal clear waters, and the west coast is ideal for swimming and snorkeling. The sleepy little market town of Moalboal was one of the first places where scuba diving caught on in the Philippines . From here, you can dive straight off Panagsama Beach , which is home to an extraordinary array of coral, anemones, sponges, and a swarming host of brightly colored reef fish.

Olango Island in Cebu supports the largest concentration of migratory birds found in the country. These birds migrating from Russia stop here en route to Australia.
