The "Queen City of The South"

.
Cebu is the largest island in the Visayas region, Philippines, and is particularly rich in historical significance with regards to the colonization of the Philippines at the hands of the Spanish. The original capital, until Manila's appointment, Cebu was demoted during the 17th century. Sporting the nickname ‘The Queen of the South’, it has six cities - Cebu, Danao, Lapu-Lapu, Mandaue, Toledo and Talisay; and 47 smaller towns.

To this day Cebu Island still remains a prominent and popular part of the archipelago, boasting the most ethnically diverse population. Its inhabitants are an interesting bunch, made up of Malay, Chinese, Filipino and an ever-growing number of westerners. It is now considered to be the most dynamic island in the Philippines, attracting native and international tourists in droves.
