Cebu is a province of the Philippines, in the countryÃ¢â‚¬â„¢s Central Visayas region, comprising Cebu Island and more than 150 smaller surrounding islands and islets. Its prosperous port capital, Cebu City, retains landmarks from its 16th-century Spanish colonial past, including the Basilica Minore del Santo NiÃƒÂ±o church and triangular Fort San Pedro. Tops, an observation deck on Mt. Busay, has sweeping views over the city.
Cebu City is the “Queen City of the South” on Cebu Island in the Philippines and is one of the most popular destinations in all of the Philippines for foreign visitors with the busiest sea port in the Philippines and the second largest air hub.
For over 200 years, the second largest and most important city in the country, it is currently the fastest growing large city in the nation with an annual growth of over 5% per year.
Perhaps surprisingly for such a booming metropolitan area, it has white sand beaches (some with ice cream vendors and showers and some untouched), as well as historical sites that reflect its cosmopolitan past. Cebu was in at the birth of Christian proselytizing in Asia when it became one of the early commercial hubs between Mexico and China.

Best Time To Visit Cebu
The city of Cebu experiences tropical climate with hot humid summers and heavy monsoons. The best time to visit Cebu is during the winter season. It enjoys sunny days, cool nights and it is less humid at this time of the year. The colorful Sinulog Festival is held in January where you can see the culture of Cebu at its best. The summer months from March to May are very hot and humid. Hence, it may not be very comfortable to travel around if you visit at this time. If heat is not a problem, then you can always visit this tropical island in summer. The rainy season between June and August usually sees heavy downpours and typhoons. All the destinations may not be reachable at this time and hence it is not advisable to visit the city during the monsoon season.Ã‚Â
