It’s no secret that Cebu is the Queen City of the South. It is called this way because of its huge economical and infrastructure potential in the future. But more than this, I would like to believe that Cebu is not a Queen only because of that. Heck, I would also like to believe that Cebu is not just a Queen in the south but instead Queen of the whole Philippines.
You don’t believe me? Let me give you 3 reasons why Cebu is the Queen of the Philippines.
1. Rich History
Let me start with this, Cebu is the home of the famed ruler of Mactan – Lapu-Lapu. Historians regards him as the very first Filipino hero for as he was the first to resist foreign colonization. Aside from that, Cebu City is considered to be the oldest city in the Philippines. Also, it is where the oldest military defense structure Fort San Pedro is located.
Basically, most of the “first” in our country’s history is in Cebu.
Crystal clear water, pristine beaches, and spectacular views. These are just some of the words you can describe the breathtaking sceneries in Cebu.
5-star hotels, villas, and beaches surround this beautiful Province. Each one offers unique experiences. Live like kings and queens in a jaw-dropping villa with wellness & spa that is near Mactan International Airport.
It’s home to the stunning Kawasan Falls, the most elegant waterfalls in the country. It is often the last stop for your Cebu canyoneering itinerary.
Island hopping in Cebu is a must. Every island offers something you cannot imagine. The white sand is beautiful and waters are crystal clear. I would recommend Bantayan, Malapascua, Camotes and Sumilon beaches.
The view from the highest peak in Cebu, Osmena Peak, is absolutely extraordinary. The best thing is that your kids can easily trek their way up to the peak.
3. Heart-pumping Activities
A swim with the whale sharks is an activity that an adrenaline seeker traveler will not pass on. This is just both a surreal and scary activity, exactly what they are looking for.
Canyoneering an exciting, fun and tiring adventure in the south.It is where you will be engaging in such activities as rappelling, rafting, and waterfall jumping. Most often than not, you will jump in Kawasan Falls.
Millions of people are coming in Cebu to witness the biggest festival celebration in the country, The Sinulog Festival. It is where they honour of the miraculous image of Sto. Nino.
These are the 3 main reasons why Cebu is the Queen of the Philippines and not just because of its economic potential. Aside from these 3, there are lots of things Cebuanos are proud of. Their local delicacies, communities and universities and colleges are one of the best also.
