Cebu, or Sugbu in our vernacular(Cebuano), is a province of the Philippines consisting of Cebu Island and 167 surrounding islands. Its is located east of Negros and west of Bohol and Leyte.
Mactan, Bantayan, Camotes, Caohagan and Sumilon are a few of the islands (which are still part of Cebu Province) that surrounds the main island of Cebu.
We, Cebuanos, are said to be warm, accommodating and friendly – though the way we speak is a bit stronger (tone-wise) than that of the people from the country’s capital, it’s not at all true that Cebuanos are braggarts. 😉 We are actually chummy and amicable, contrary to the misconception.
Cebuano’s loves to eat. Being in the heart of the country, food gets really interesting. From original Cebuano cuisines, to a mix of tastes from neighboring provinces to asian fusion and international dishes, Cebu has it all! It’s a melting pot of gastronomic delights!
And the best thing bout Cebu? Proximity! When you are stressed out, the beach is an hour drive from almost everywhere from the city or if you want to feel the breeze brush your hair, the mountains are just minutes away!
Cebu is <3!
