When the world opens up I'm thinking about going to Cebu for a week or two...Anyone been before?


Recommended Posts

Cebu island is definitely on the cards for my first post covid holiday.

Heard great things about it and would like to know more.

Anyone here ever been?

what to expect?

nice beaches, food, girls etc?

I've never been to the philippines before so any advice/suggestions would be great!

thanks.

 

(apologies if this is in the wrong forum).

Reading between the lines you should go to Angeles City for your first trip

Some basics. If you do get into an altercation with a Philippine man, or are getting robbed or harassed, unless you are a 6th degree sensei, do not fight back. An astonishing number of locals are well

Give it a try if you must.  Food is only just okay.  Girls, if I recall, pre my marriage,  are friendly, beautiful and knock Thai bar girls into a cocked hat and usually speak very good English. Watch your wallet and don't go out at night alone.  And if you think Thai Police are bad, you are in for a treat there. 

A rather murky picture you paint there mate 😄

anywhere else you recommend for a first timer?

sorry, didn't mean to put you off.  No, do try it.  It is at least worth one visit and you may like it.  For me it would be Mindanao, but its very much a personal choice. If its night life you are after, maybe Subic and Angles City but I haven't been to either in many years.  Check out the Philippines Forums.  Very friendly people on there and they can give you up to date info.

the jihadist goings on over the past decades would be enough to keep me from going that far south...    (think Yala Province for a comparison) 

 

Found it more reassuring to just stay places like the Resorts overlooking the Taal Volcano lake...

Feel I should add that when I go on holiday I like sun all day, plenty booze, white beaches with clear water and plenty willing females to cherry pick.

Also partial to a bit of culture here and there when the booze wears off...

 

 

Boracay?

yes, but more hassle to get to. Its a beautiful Island, very tropical and exotic.  Not sure about the extent of the night life nowadays.
