Cebu is a bustling metropolis, but compared to other parts of the Philippines it's fairly off the tourist trail. This means accommodation here is very affordable, as the city isn’t built around the tourism industry. It also gives you a chance to see the real Philippines, something that doesn't always happen in more popular destinations.

Central port city to other islands. Dirty city with a few things to do but traffic is bad and sites are spread out. Cheap though.

Kawasan falls from Cebu City to Kawasan adventure Cannyonnering site. Cabana is superb place for food and live music. Octagon is fantastic place for clubbing. And After your Cannyonnering and visit to Kawasan you need a good relaxing massage and best place to get this is Aloha Mana Spa. Don't forget to try their tea post massage.
