Seeing Cebu

Philipines Cebu Travel
Cebu is a truly paradisaical and untamed island that hasn’t been fully desecrated by droves of tourists…yet.

With beautiful beaches and crystal clear waters, it’s got all the cliched conditions to be classified as a traveller’s paradise.

Well, apart from some of the local wildlife, which is actually relatively harmless for the most part.

The wiring is very faithful to the South-East Asian style, as you would see in Vietnam or Thailand.

Not sure if this would help.

It’s the cacao fruit – relatively tasteless and not that fun to eat, really. Or maybe I was doing it wrong.

A trip into the main town of Cebu reveals a side that isn’t so glamorous – the apparent poverty is heart wrenching, but the locals are pretty chill about it.

Cebu is famous for its diving and water sports, so tourists of the general type aren’t as attracted to the area, compared to the other Pinoy hotspots such as Boracay, El Nido or Manila (the capital).

That said, it’s still one of the popular islands in the Philippines that lives on the fringe of the ridiculously deep Mariana Trench, which is what makes it so delicious for diving.

Perhaps next time I’ll get some sweet underwater shots.

Instead you’re stuck with the carcasses of candles, a graveyard of the fire lights.
