Cebu City

Trip Planner Asia  /  Philippines  /  Visayas  /  Cebu Island  /  Cebu City

Queen City of the South

The country's second city, Cebu City boasts a number of interesting colonial buildings, thriving commercial areas, and historic temples. Districts in Cebu City each have their own character, with gritty port-side areas, leafy suburbs, and waterfront nightlife epicenters, each dotted with colonial Spanish architecture, museums, and restaurants. Cebu City holidays also offer a chance to explore the country's marine heritage, with a number of dive sites to be found just offshore from the island that houses the airport. So you can fly in, pick up your luggage, and immediately head underwater to admire the reef. Cebu City is in Cebu Island. Our Philippines trip planner allows you to plan your trip to Cebu City and a wealth of other destinations big and small.

Where to stay in Cebu City

The most popular place to stay in Cebu City remains uptown, particularly around the university district near Junquera Street station. Here you'll find a good range of hotels, hostels, and guesthouses of varying quality, but with a well-established base level representing value for money. Further north, look along Dalan Osmena to find a good number of standard and luxury hotels located north and south of the roundabout. The downtown area has more closely knitted streets, with just a few guesthouses located along primarily residential roads.
