The accessibility: Cebu City is accessible by land, air and sea. In fact, its geographical location makes it a perfect venue for seminars, conventions and other big events. Several public utility vehicles are plying major and minor routes within the city. It has an international port and the international airport is about 30 minutes away.

General opinion: Cebu is generally fair as a City. Cebu City Sports Complex is there for wellness and fitness conscious individuals. Malls are accessible and Night Entertainment Hubs are cool.Though when it comes to safety, what I can say is to stay vigilant all the time and be aware of the Non-mendicancy City Ordinance.:P

General opinion: I grow up in this city since 1960, up to the time I get married, I saw the city grow into a mega city, nice and friendly cebuanos are there, entertainment, resorts & beaches are second to none, food is cheap and affordable accommodation. Traffic is manageable, weekend in the beach is more fun.

Not to miss:  Cebu City's most famous landmark is Magellan's Cross: planted onApril 14th, 1521 by Ferdinand Magellan himself , this wooden cross marks the spot where the first Christian Filipinos, Rajah Humabon and Queen Juana and about 400 followers were baptized by Fr. Pedro Valderama.
Fort San Pedro, the oldest tri-bastion fort in the country which served as the nucleus of the first Spanish settlement in the Philippines.
A tour inside the Casa Gorordo Museum is a real journey into a Filipino lifestyle in a particular period between 1860 to 1920. Even the Fort San Pedro ... More National Museum is surely worth a visit.
The Southwestern University Museum gives a great look of Cebuano art and lifestyle, from the prehistoric to hispanic times.
Cebu City is also host to the popular Sinulog festival, held every third Sunday of January in honor of Santo Niño, the "Holy Child".
The seaside in the island is really great, unforgettable and full of different places to discover and enjoy.

General opinion:  Cebu City is located in the central eastern part of Cebu Province, an island at the heart of the
Visayas in Southern Philippines.
Many changes occurred to Cebu City during the centuries: from a sleepy fishing village to a fledging trading port in 1521, from the first Spanish settlement named Villa del Santisimo Nombre de Jesus in 1575 to a municipality in 1901, Cebu finally became a chartered city on February 24th, 1937.
Cebu City is the first and the oldest city in the country, ante-dating Manila by 7 years, and is the cradle of Christianity in ... More the Far East.
Today Cebu City is at the same time the main resort of the Visayas, the most densely populated island, a great commercial centre with an international harbour and the Philippine’s second city.
The Mactan-Cebu International Airport, located in Lapu-Lapu City, is only a twenty-minute drive away from Cebu City.

General opinion: I dont know but Cebu City has been very harsh on me or its just me. Cebu City should be like Singapore where there is very good proportion between humans and trees. I think its a law in their country that there should be more trees than people. I heard that 1 person is to 20 trees is the proportion if I'm not mistaken. I love that idea. Singaporeans are really responsible.

Not to miss: Dirty, not organized and dangerous. No canalization, no waste recycle program, pollution of rivers and air, pollution of the sea, 95 % cannot afford to swim in the sea, no recreation area for the public, worst city after Manila, which is the worst among all Asian cities. No infrastructure of the city! No road program.

General opinion: Cebu is safe, but during night time stay away from non-lighted area, and don't let your valuable things unattended. Make sure you have map or guide, if you are a first timer. A week or days you can adapt Cebu. We are friendly. ^_^ see u then.
