 “The Philippines is the runaway winner in this prestigious international event. Our islands, food, and the biggest smiles of our people are all over the news and social media these past few weeks. The world now knows how beautiful our islands are, how delectable our cuisines are, and how friendly and warm Filipinos are – just ask the Miss Universe candidates themselves,” Teo expounded, recalling the diverse travel itinerary of this year’s candidates had, from Boracay’s party island to the cool highlands of Baguio, to the historical town of Vigan, the colorful tapestry of Mindanao in Davao City, and to the exciting multifaceted Manila.
 “What you saw during your brief stay – some of top destinations, festivals, our “balut”, our Bohol Chocolate Hills – these are just a glimpse of what our 7,107 islands can offer.  So today, I invite the world, come to the Philippines so you can affirm that when you are with Filipinos, you are with family,” the tourism chief remarked.
 With the support of President Rodrigo R. Duterte, the DOT tapped the support and assistance of other government agencies, along with the pageant organizers and private partners, to deliver what ought to be the “most memorable and beautiful Miss Universe edition ever.”

 The 65th Miss Universe was made possible with the collective effort of the DOT, the Miss Universe Organization, LCS Group headed by Gov. Chavit Singson & Architect Richelle Singson Michelle, in partnership with Okada Manila, SM Group of Companies, and Solar Entertainment Corporation, its broadcast partner.

Cebu City is 80% upland, composed of 31 highland baranggays  -14 in the south and 17 in the north of the city; the highlands take pride on the fresh produce and flowers that supplies the metro with high-grade farm products and artisan goods. It came as a surprise that Cebu City highlands still have many secret spots for adventure seekers.

Cebu City Highlands Tours, organized by Cebu City Tourism Office,  offer fun adventure to the city’s hilly lands’ less known adventure spots. Two of the featured Cebu City Highlands Tour attractions are Bombahanan  Cave and Guining Falls , both rarely explored sites in Cebu City uplands.
