AIRPORT

The Philippines is an archipelago of 7,107 islands east of Vietnam and north of Indonesia, divided into three major island groups: Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao. It’s a tiny country of just under 2,000 kilometers in length, yet it boasts extensive mountain ranges, underwater landscapes, cave systems, plains, waterfalls, rock faces, rivers, lakes, and over 15,500 km. worth of beaches. In contrast to this abundance of natural wonder—the Philippines is home to some of the most bio-diverse areas on the planet—the bigger cities are quite cosmopolitan, with robust industry and infrastructure, notably Davao in Mindanao, Cebu in the Visayas, and the capital city of Manila in Luzon.

OSLOB / WHALE SHARK

Oslob is located at the southern tip of Cebu. It’s a small coastal town but it has become world famous because of the whale sharks or the largest fish on the planet that roam its seas, locally known as butanding or tuki.
Undoubtedly, one of the most popular — talking about worldwide recognition — tourist attractions in Cebu is the Whale Shark Watching or Swimming with the Whale Sharks in Oslob, Southern Cebu.

SINULOG FESTIVAL

The Sinulog-Santo Niño Festival is an annual cultural and religious festival held on the third Sunday of January in Cebu City and is the centre of the Santo Niño Catholic Christian celebrations in the Philippines.

The festival is considered to be the biggest festival in the Philippines, with every celebration of the festival routinely attracting between 1 million and 15 million people each year. Aside from the religious aspect of the festival, Sinulog is also famous for its street parties, usually happening the night before and the night of the main festival. The festival is nicknamed the “Grandest Festival in the Philippines.”

LECHON / PUSO

Lechon (“leh-chon”)—or, to be specific, lechon Cebu— is a young pig stuffed with a secret mix of herbs and spices (usually including star anise, spring onions, lemongrass), skewered on a bamboo pole and roasted whole over hot coals. As the name implies, it’s a must while in Cebu!

In the Philippines, puso (“poo-SO”) is rice wrapped and boiled in a triangular casing made of woven coconut leaves. It is also called hanging rice, as the packets are often picturesquely hung in bunches using the long ends of the leaves. Puso’s true origins seem lost in the annals of history, but variations of the same dish are familiar sights in other Southeast Asian countries, including Brunei, Malaysia, and Indonesia (where it’s called ketupat).

It became an icon of Cebuano street food, for reasons both delicious and practical: The organic casing imparts a unique leafy flavor to the rice, which is compact and dense enough to be eaten straight out of the leaves, sans spoon and fork.
