Exploring a new place is always exciting but if you only have a day or even half to spare, what do you do? In case you happen to visit Cebu, you can simply choose any of the popular day trips below. You can still have a grand time with your friends and family even with a very tight schedule ahead.
Are you a history and culture buff? A heritage day tour Cebu often involves visiting historical sites, ancestral homes and other old places that can still be found around the downtown area. They are located quite close to each other and you can even enjoy a walking tour while you are at it.
A day trip around the city center usually just takes half a day so many visitors would opt to take a twin city tour – that is, visiting both Cebu City and Lapu-Lapu City. Here you also get to see the Lapu-Lapu Shrine, Marian Shrine and the Shrine of our Lady of Ruel and the guitar factories of Mactan Island.
Don’t want to include walking on concrete and seeing buildings in your Cebu itinerary? An island hopping tour should be your top priority! Popular choices include visiting Pandanon Island Cebu and other nearby islands. Visitors also highly request for some Nalusuan Island snorkeling time to see the beautiful world under the sea.
Adrenaline junkies will rejoice because this highly popular activity in Cebu involves jumping and swimming in bodies of water found in between canyons. This starts off at the highest point of the island, Osmeña Peak, and then ends in the cool and refreshing Kawasan Falls.
Not everyone has the endurance to survive a 5-hour canyoneering tour so, what do you do? Head to the waterfalls right away, of course! You can start the day trip to Kawasan Falls and then head to the nearby towns to see other waterfalls such as Aguinid Falls, Dao Falls and many more.
If you have a little more budget to spare, a visit to the Sumilon Island sandbar is highly recommended. You will surely marvel at the beauty of this private island, making it well worth the price tag. And, if you do not feel like spending too much of your time lazing by the beach, you can also visit the infamous whale sharks in Oslob Cebu.
Surprise! If you think that a day trip around Cebu involves only this beautiful island then you are wrong. You can actually make it a jump-off point to see the equally beautiful Bohol, which is just an hour’s ride away by boat. A Bohol tour from Cebu involves visiting famous places such as the Chocolate Hills, Tarsier Sanctuary, Loboc River and many more!
And, to make your entire trip smooth sailing, it is always best to entrust your itinerary to a highly trusted Cebu travel and tours agency who will do all the work for you. Just mix and match any of the Cebu cheap tour packages that are available so you can maximize your visit in the Queen City of the South! Happy trip!
