Cebu on Wheels
Cebu is the oldest city in the Philippines
and it has a past filled with history. Located on Cebu Island
towards the south of the country, Cebu is now a busy centre of
urban growth and development and has become one of the most
popular tourist destinations throughout the whole of the
Philippines. If you are planning to visit this great area then
you will find many interesting things to see and do, and you are
sure to have a great time.
The weather is at its best in this area from December to May,
when it turns dry. The rainy season begins in July, when if you
find yourself here all you will want to do is stay inside
relaxing or playing
The downpours at this time can be
torrential and are definitely something to be avoided if
possible. The area is at its hottest from March to May and its
coolest from December to February. So it is a good idea to check
out the weather patterns before travelling to Cebu.
Once you have experienced the hustle and bustle of Cebu City,
the rest of the island contains some magical areas for those who
want to get away from it all. From white sandy beaches to clear,
warm waters, there is everything that a holidaymaker needs to
relax as well as some beautiful scenery. Those who like to dive
in clear, pleasant waters will be at home around Cebu, as there
are great diving grounds and many experienced guides who can
help those in need of some practice.
You can travel from here to other islands and provinces by
plane, boat or bus and it is a great place to start your
holiday. So begin planning the time and specific location of
your holiday and prepare to have a wonderful time.
Would you like
to learn the language spoken in Cebu and elsewhere
in the Visayas and Mindanao Regions of the
Philippines? If so, this is an excellent
introductory book for you to begin learning
the basics of Cebuano.
The book is titled Conversational English-Cebuano Made Easy, by
Cristina Canonigo, a Filipina who has authored more than 100 books, to date.
An earlier version of
this book, the 2001 edition, is the version I used
to begin learning Cebuano when I first moved to Cebu. It was a
great first book for me. I assure you, if you
spend a few minutes per day with it, you will
begin to learn Cebuano as well.
