Many tourists just use Cebu City as a jump-off point to their next Philippine destination. But it won’t hurt to spend a day exploring the city. Cebu may be highly urbanized, but it boasts of a colourful history.
Check out Magellan’s Cross and Fort San Pedro for a bit of history lesson. You can also get a bird’s eye view of the city from Crown Regency Hotel, which offers sky adventures some 450ft above the ground. Make sure to try out the city’s famed lechon, said to be the best in the country.

Travel time with a van is around 2.5 hours, a bit faster than the bus as vans do not make as many stops. Do note that vans aren’t very spacious and may be uncomfortable especially if you’re carrying a lot of luggage.
Vans depart when they are full. Sometimes though, if there aren’t enough passengers, van drivers decide not to go at all. If this happens, you can still catch a Ceres Bus from Moalboal to Cebu.
You can also ask your hotel’s staff to arrange a taxi ride for you. They might be able to help you negotiate for a cheaper price. For reference, a reasonable taxi rate from Moalboal to Cebu should be around 3,000 PHP ($52).
