Cebu Information

Cebu’s interior has densely populated structures, making the city look as if it is crowded. However, as one starts to move away from the central business district, human settlements become sparse. This is in stark contrast to Dubai, which has well-spaced buildings adequately adapted to the desert climate.
Cebu is more populated than Dubai and there are a number of attractions, chief among them being Mactan, Magellan's Cross, Basilica del Santo Niño, Fort San Pedro, Cebu Taoist Temple, Santo Niño and the Cebu Metropolitan Cathedral.
It also has a lively nightlife, with most of the top clubs, bars, and restaurants located around Fuente Osmena Circle (Mango Square) and Mango Avenue. While Cebu’s nightlife is quite good to say the least, it still finds itself lacking in comparison to Dubai, which houses some of the world’s best bars, clubs, and restaurants in terms of design and the dishes offered.
