Cab drivers in Cebu are very polite and helpful. You can easily get around the city without fearing of being ripped off with fixed taxi meters. How I wish the cab drivers in Manila are like them?
Also, everything you want to be is within reach within 30-45 minutes whether it‘s a beach resort, mountain top, cultural places or shopping malls.over 6 years ago
been to the chinese temple. it was a nice place but the transpo was quite difficult. i find the streets very narrow and the city very hot. i do not particularly like the traffic it caused. i guess i havent had time to really explore the city. maybe i have to go back again there.over 7 years ago
Cebu City is the capital of the province of Cebu in the Philippines and the commercial center of the Visayas. Although the government of the province of Cebu holds office at the historic Provincial Capitol located within the city, the city itself is politically independent of the province. Among its most famous landmarks are Magellan’s cross, the Basilica de Sto. Niño and Colon St., the oldest street in the Philippines, so named in honor of the Catalan explorer Christopher Columbus whose family name in Spanish is Colon. It is also home to the University of San Carlos, the oldest school in the country.
The name Cebu was taken from the old Malay word “Sebu” (not “Sugbu”, an anachronistic belief imposed by non-locals) which means full (as in stomach) as Cebu was the most affluent area of the Philippines at the time of its discovery by Magellan.over 7 years ago
