Things to Do in Cebu City

Basilica Minore del Santo Nino
The oldest church in the Philippines, Santo Niño has survived three fires and more recently an earthquake, giving it a miraculous reputation. Visit on a Friday or Sunday to see the nearby street cordoned off for outdoor masses and floods of pilgrims. Join them in catching a glimpse of the Flemish image of the infant Jesus.
Cebu Taoist Temple
Grab a good pair of walking shoes and climb the 80+ steps of this Cebu shrine. There’s also a miniature “Great Wall of China”, fortune tellers and dragons galore. As the temple is situated around 300 metres above sea level, you can enjoy breathtaking views over the surrounding islands, as well as a dramatic sunset.
Fort San Pedro
Once a symbol of Spanish military power, this 16th-century stronghold is now a tranquil escape from the bedlam of downtown Cebu. Stroll through the elegant ruins and scenic walled garden of the first Spanish settlement in the Philippines. Historic photographs give an insight into what life was like, while old cannons still sit in their original spots.

I would surely recommend the canyonering trip. Lookout for happy juanderer tours. They are just simply amazing. Stay near to ayala mall as it’s. Very central and close to mango street Download grab as it’s a replacement to Uber here.

The food in Cebu, specially cebu lechon is incomparable, for me, the best. Traffic in Mega Cebu is worse than in MetroManila. I suggest you stay in a hotel near the malls and restaurants. I highly recommend Hotel Elizabeth for its proximity to the Ayala Center and House of Lechon!

My wife and I have never been to Cebu so we visited for just three days. So much to see and do in Cebu we wished we had stayed longer. We will be back for a longer stay next time.

Recommended in Cebu City

The Ayala Mall is the best Mall I have visited anywhere in the world. It has a great communal feel to it with lot's of decent restaurants. Sitting out on the terrace in the evening having a cold drink was very enjoyable.

Surprisingly, they having a such a beautiful shopping centre - Ayala Mall & SM Mall. A lot's of stuff's at good price... A few stores offers a huge discounts...

Clean,they have lots of water activities especially island hopping,the snorkeling areas are excellent,,

Totally ignore people selling or soliciting anything on the streets! Be warned!

Travel by jeepney and also walk to the destination.
