The majestic island of Cebu, located east of Malaysia deep in the Philippine Sea, is a Philippine province home to the oldest city in the Philippines. Cebu consists of the main island and 167 surrounding islands, and it is widely regarded as one of the best island destinations in the Indian Ocean and Asia. Cebu has become a global hub for travel and many local crafts, such as furniture making and other industries. It's also easy to access—Cebu flights land in the Mactan-Cebu International Airport (CEB), and from there travelers can reach virtually any point in the province by car or boat.
Book one of the hotels in Cebu near the airport for easy access to your accommodations; the airport is on Mactan Island in Lapu-Lapu City. This method will take you about 20 or 30 minutes to get to the actual city of Cebu; take that into account when you're booking flights to Cebu. You can take a taxi from the airport, but you'll find many of the local hotels in Cebu will send a shuttle to pick you up for free. You can also rent a car, which is great for visitors who need a means of transport while on the island. Keep in mind you can also get around by hired boats; this can be a beautiful way to see the area. The Jeepney is another option—it's a small bus known for crowded seating and kitschy decorations but is actually a great way to get a taste of Philippine culture and art.
Many visitors travel here to learn how to deep sea dive, while others come for family day trips through the historical grounds or to explore the Olango Island Wildlife Sanctuary.
