Welcome to the Queen City of the Philippine South!

With an island-long stretch of sandy beaches and beautiful resorts complementing a bustling metropolis, it’s no wonder Cebu is oftentimes referred to as THE business and leisure paradise in the Pacific.

Here are some quick facts about this amazing island.

“Right in the Heart” Location

Cebu is literally situated in the center of the 7,107 islands that make up the Philippine archipelago. Located in the Visayas region, Cebu has the convenient luxury of being in the middle of all trade and commerce from Luzon to Mindanao. So, when you talk about being in the loop, Cebu is definitely it.

“Hey, Joe!” People and Language

Home to approximately 3 million, Cebu is known for its warmth and hospitality. You may immediately notice this, as even people you’ve never met before call you by first name and hug you like long lost family. Okay, so your name isn’t actually Joe, but to most Cebuanos, it’s all in the ritual of welcoming foreigners to the big Cebuano family. Visayan is the native tongue, while Tagalog and English are commonly understood and spoken – very well! You won’t have to use that tiny pocket dictionary after all!

“Present, Sir!” Education

Cebu is the education center for Central and Eastern Visayas as well as Northern Mindanao. At last count, there are around a dozen colleges and universities in Cebu and probably twice that number of high schools. Literacy is high and with the quality of education people are receiving here, it’s no wonder more and more international companies recruit from our region. In fact, the Philippines is ranked #1 in the availability of knowledge-based job and workers worldwide, and ranked 4th among Asian nations in labor quality, according to a survey conducted by the U.S. based Meta Group.
“Tourist Country” Attractions

Imagine pristine white sand beaches and azure tropical waters. Cebu is home to the best resorts in the country and is considered by many as the diving capital of the Philippines. And the best thing about Cebu is that many of the beaches and resorts are only about an hour's drive from downtown - so you can snorkel by day and dress for cocktails at night. Need we say more?

But if you think that’s all there is to Cebu, think again! Cebu, being the oldest city in the Philippines, is dotted with remarkable landmarks rich in history and culture, each with a fascinating story to tell about this enchanting island in the Pacific.

“Life’s a Beach” Climate  

The good news is that Cebu has fine weather all year round. Cebu enjoys a tropical climate with moderate variations in weather and temperature. So bask away under the tropical sun. Just don’t forget your sun block.
