Exploring Cebu: A 5-Day tour plan

Uncover the wonders of Cebu

Welcome to Cebu, the Queen City of the South! If you’re planning a trip to this vibrant and bustling city, you’re in for an adventure of a lifetime. From its pristine beaches to historical landmarks.


Cebu is not only a beautiful paradise but also the oldest city in the Philippines. Founded by Spanish explorer Ferdinand Magellan in 1521, it’s a city steeped in rich history and culture.


While indulging in delicious food is a must, don’t forget to try the refreshing mango shake made from Cebu’s sweet and fresh mangoes. It’s the perfect beverage to cool down on a hot day. And when it comes to natural beauty, Cebu is best known for its stunning beaches and crystal-clear waters. Head to Mactan Island for snorkeling, diving, or simply basking in the sun on the beach.


No visit to Cebu is complete without a visit to Magellan’s Cross, a symbol of the city’s history and believed to be planted by Magellan himself. It’s a testament to Cebu’s rich past and a must-see attraction. And if you’re planning your trip in August, expect an average temperature of 28°C (82°F) and some precipitation, so pack accordingly.
