Cebu City is like a mini Manila thanks to its energetic, exciting and fast-paced rhythm. Here you'll be greeted by the hustle and bustle of honking jeepneys and shopping-mall culture. Cebu upscale Lahug district comes alive by night with bars and clubs to suite every taste. And just over the bridge is Mactan Island which is one of the few places in the world where you can experience world-class diving within minutes of a major international airport.
Cebu's cultural influences are predominantly foreign: The Taoist temple is a symbol of the city’s ethnic Chinese population, while there is a 16 century Spanish-built church of Basilica Minore del Santo Nino. So if you're looking to throw yourself into a busy city - then Cebu is just the ticket.
