Living Local, Going Local

To provide an opportunity for 26 local government units (LGUs)of Cebu to showcase their places, products and packaged tours and connect them with tour operators and local communities, the Cebu Provincial Government, through the Provincial Tourism Office, held last October 8-10 the “La Vida Local” 2018 travel fair and summit at the SM City Cebu Northwing Atrium. A total of 11 partner green hideaways also featured their products and attractions. On the third and final day, a “tourism summit” was held at the same venue. Speakers shared their expertise, particularly on farm tourism, faith tourism, and MICE, as well as on updates on Cebu’s hotel, transportation, and the new airport terminal. It was not all work, though, for the tourism officers and their staff, as the fellowship night provided them an opportunity to also laugh their tiredness and worries away.

Cebu Journeys: A Tourism 2018 Report

There remains a lot to accomplish and opportunities to take advantage of; much remains to be done, and so little time. But rest assured the Cebu Provincial Government, through the Cebu Provincial Tourism Office, is focused on its vision for Cebu as a sustainable destination, where we welcome visitors to discover our shores, our hills our fields, our culture, our history, our heart, without having to sacrifice the environment and our people. Towards this end, we will set out to provide meaningful and positive experience to guests and clients, maximize benefits and minimize negative impacts to communities and the industry, and encourage and adopt sustainable tourism practices for all.

Cebu doesn’t cease to surprise. Just when you think you’ve seen them all, you realize you’ve seen nothing yet. Travel to Tabuelan and discover unspoiled beaches this side of paradise. Hasten to Samboan and commune with nature: climb its mountains, discover its caves, and chase its waterfalls. Then when you have felt one with the universe, scale Escala de Jacob for a deeper fellowship with the divine. Explore magnificent Malapascua, and dive with the thresher sharks.

 

Floating Restaurant

Float down an idle river in the town of Tabuelan, found in the north of the Cebu island. Aside from offering delicious local foods in this floating restaurant, you can also be toured by the local interpreters as they tell you all about the unique mangrove environment surrounding the river and spin tales of local folklore that many natives still believe to this day.

 

 

Aguinid Falls

On the very southern end of the island of Cebu is the municipality of Samboan. It is only in this small town where you can experience the majesty and adrenaline rush from waterfall chasing. These waterfalls are small pockets of a different kind of tropical paradise, where you are surrounded by the sounds of rushing water and the local wildlife.

 

 

Thresher Shark

Malapascua is a little island off the coast of northern Cebu, home to the beautiful thresher sharks. These sharks are known as “angels of the deep” because of its long, beautiful tail and big, doe eyes. Dive into the deep seas of Malapascua to experience a unique kind of weightlessness and to come across these amazing creatures.
