Have you been to Cebu City?

Was it a fun and adventurous one?

Let me introduce to you the Queen City of the South, Cebu City.


The famous Queen City of the South, Cebu City, is the place where I lived. Cebu City is one of the most well-known cities and places because of its historical remains from the past here in the Philippines. It is also one of the oldest cities. This is the place where the Portuguese explorer Ferdinand Magellan landed and Christianized the Filipino people. The famous battle of Mactan and the death of Ferdinand Magellan took place on the island of Mactan, where the Spanish troops of Magellan were defeated by the brave warriors of Lapu-Lapu, the Datu of Mactan. Lapu-Lapu City was then named after him. The oldest street in the Philippines is also located in Cebu City and it is called Colon Street, the place that doesn’t sleep. This is the place where everyone is awake and alive.

The city of Cebu was also one of the richest cities in the Philippines. Most of the big names and big personalities resided in Cebu City.

Trivia: Cebu City was the first capital of the Philippines.


What is Cebu known for?

Foods

The city of Cebu also has some of the best and tastiest foods you’ll ever get! One of Cebu’s delicacies was the Letchon Baboy, a roasted pig. One of the best food combos you’ll get in Cebu is the Siomai and Puso. Puso is a rice dish wrapped in pandan leaves paired with siomai, or the famous Siomai sa Tisa. Dried Mangoes were also one of Cebu’s best pasalubong. If you want some dried fish, tuyo, or buwad, it’s all here in Cebu. The famous tastiest danggit and other plates of seafood can be purchased on some Cebu islands, particularly on Cordova. Believe it or not, dried fish is way more expensive than pork.

Tourism

When we talk about tourism, everything you want is all here in Cebu! When you search for famous tourist spots in the Philippines, most of the results that appear will all be located in Cebu. From enormous mountains to a beach where the sands are as white as snow. There are lots of tourist spots in Cebu that can be easily accessible. If you want to unwind with nature, you can go hike at Osmenia Peak, or if you want to smell the ocean breeze and swim around with the whale sharks, you can visit Moalboal.

History

If you are the type of person who is fond of exploring historical places, there is sure to be a place for you. Fort San Pedro, Magellan’s Cross, Colon, Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral, Simala Shrine, and many more! There will always be a special place just for you. Name it, and Cebu City will always have it.

Festivals

Cebu is well-known for more than just its cuisine, tourism, and history. One of the biggest festivals celebrated in the Philippines is also located here in Cebu, and it is the Sinulog Festival. It is a festival that is held every third Sunday of January. The feast of Senior Santo Niño is a celebration in honor of Santo Niño the baby Jesus, a long week-long celebration. This is celebrated with a dance by each participant of each province, with some colorful costumes. Tomorrow will be the feast of Santo Niño January 16, 2022, the third Sunday of January.

There are so many things to discover in Cebu. I hope one day you can visit and see for yourself how magnificent Cebu City is.

Jini's Note:

Hey there my lovely read cash buddies! How are you? For two days, I will be publishing some topics about my place the Cebu city, in honor of the celebration of the Sinulog Festival. I will just be celebrating it virtually since we couldn't visit the city for some matter. By writing this, I can feel that I am in the City celebrating the festival. XD

Very beautiful city indeed.. Very colourful too.. Sis I wanna ask, before Filipino people were Christianized, may I know who were you praying to? I meant to ask, what was your original spiritual path before christianity?

Before we were christianized, the people in the island of Cebu were mostly Muslims ruled my Rajah and Datu's. If ever the expedition of Magellan didn't happen, I guess we all are still Muslims.

The before and after is really amazing. Theres been a really drastic change such that if any one from the past comes back to life, he'd be in doubt regarding whether he is in the right city or not. Lol..
