Cebu is a kaleidoscope of varying cultures and lifestyles, a meeting of east and west, a fusion of things traditional and modern. This is influenced by the various phases of Cebu: being the spot where Philippine history began, becoming the cradle of Christianity, experiencing American and Japanese occupation, and later on transforming itself into a regional hub of everything — from arts and craftsmanship, to business and information technology.
Cebu Province has 44 towns and seven cities, various urban centers and countryside, islands and mountain ranges. These diverse factors give the many faces of Cebu.
Cebu province offers a wide range of recreational activities — from diving spots to heritage walks to various eco tourism adventures.
With Cebu as one of the top tourist destinations in the Philippines, the Cebu Provincial Government, through the Cebu Provincial Tourism Office, is focused on its vision for Cebu as a sustainable destination, where they welcome visitors to discover its shores, hills and fields, culture, history, heart, without having to sacrifice the environment and its people.
Their goal is to provide meaningful and positive experiences to guests and clients, maximize benefits and minimize negative impacts to communities and the industry, and encourage and adopt sustainable tourism practices for all.
