    Take off to Cebu!! It is a must for me to travel to Cebu at least once in my life. Seems this is the chance. The best attraction of Cebu that I would like to visit is the beach. Cebu is well known for its beach. Beach is the best place for us to escape from the stresses that we feel in the city. For the peoples who loves nature, this is a good place to view the sunset. Since i really love scuba diving, i think i should give it a try at Malapascua. Besides this is the best chance for me to visit Boracay too!!

  • Bram

    I would love to visit Fort San Pedro. Philippines has a history of Spanish and Japanese colonisations and this building has the answers for curiousity of both eras. As a museum buff, the museum inside the fort is simply a perfect attraction. Once I’m immersed in the local history, I’ll probably head to Larsian to enjoy local delicacies.

  • Elvira Wong

    Travelling everywhere is my part time job. My friend said im working with AA because i wont miss my every single holiday. Even im not. Seem the fruit salad is so nice to eat. Im wish to visit cebu again. But this time hopefully will be the beach side so i might release my stress. And also can washing my mind on the beach.

  • Lau Poung Tong

    Sun, sea and sand! To the beaches we go! The long white sand-shores, crystal clear water and the sunshine warm my face will instantly lift up my spirits. Cebu would be a perfect place for me to break from reality.If I have the chances, I would love to visit Sumilon Island too. To swim with whale sharks is my dream !! Cebu; a perfect gateway that worth a lifetime adventure!

  • Ong Keng Pin

    Philippines is definitely in my list of country to travel due to the richness of historical background. Magellan’s Cross and Fort San Pedro would be my favorite place to visit and I am ready to be enlightened by its past. I always feel grateful when travelling has become beneficial to me, gaining more historical and cultural knowledge about the place. Hence, I would appreciate more the moments spent at there, and make sure the experiences to be kept memorable for the rest of my life !

  • Kgia Teo

    I’d most like to try SuTuKil because it looks Suuuuuuuuuu yum, like a meal Tu Kil for!

  • DausShukor

    I love to go to the beach. The beach was everything it was made out to be, just beautiful and calm. Hair gets lighter. Skin gets darker. Water gets warmer. Nights get longer. Music gets louder. Life gets better. Take me there!

  • Louella Donaire

    Cebu beaches are the best and near to the hustle and bustle of the city =) Enough to get some R&R in the beaches
    then shopping then eat delicious spicy crispy lechon! Oh my gosh its perfection at its finest =)

  • Lim Rui Rui

    I wanna LECHON!
    I am a horrendous eater, like a friggin’ horse.
    But I never show it in front of Malaysians, too shy…they will pop out their eyeballs, watch me judge me…lol
    In Cebu, I will just eat like mad, because whatever happens in Cebu, stays in Cebu :)
    Imagine the juiciness, crispyness, like what Anthony Bourdain said…
    i have NO RESERVATIONS for that, just NOM NOM NOM!

  • Farah Nur Suaidah binti Zainud

    Because of the listed attraction, I would love to visit Cebu explore it by myself and tell the world how amazing the city is. From swimming with the whale sharks to historical Fort San Pedro and the ultimate tropical island; Boracay.

  • Yen Aviva

    there’s no other place in asia countries you can find a amazing beaches apart from cebu. And not to forget their friendly and beautiful people. If i were given a chance i would choose cebu as a place to settle down. Mabuhay!

  • Bunny

    The attraction that is the most appealing to me is of course – the beaches! The white sand and the crystal clear water is a heavenly combination for city folks like myself. The best part is Cebu offers much more than this; beaches, food (oh yummy lechon!), cultural and heritage sites. Awesome Cebu! <3

  • Kanmani

    I’m lacking some serious vitamin ‘Sea’ so all I need is Beach please. Boracay could provide the necessary nourishment I need to functions properly. I’m sick of the concrete jungle view and long for the Sun. Sand and Sea while ‘cuci mata’ checking out them surfer dude with their…ehem ‘surf boards’. Hehehe….grand my wish please. Thank you.

  • Farah Atiqah Mohd

    Ask me why I want to go to Cebu and my answer will simply be their world class ‘Mangga’! Well yeah, because I love mangoes that much I am willing to ‘maglakbay’ all the way to the Pinoy soil. Ohh AirAsia please grant me the chance to salivate on these Carabao beauties and do as I please with them (no pun intended!). Salamat!

  • Kris Paludipan

    take me to the beaches, i know i was a merman from cebu in my past life

  • lornachuan

    Sinulog festival is one of the best attractions that Cebu, Philippines can ever be proud of. I would love to visit
    and experience that crazy street dancing they have, I think even though you do not know how to dance, once
    you hear the rhythm, your feet will uncontrollably move nonstop and become an instant dancer as what other
    spectators would unbelievably be doing by themselves. Their captivating and colorful costumes and floats,
    beautiful faces from all all over the world, the breathtaking body movements & smiles will surely mesmerize your
    eyes just like looking at the rainbow in the sky after the rain. That you don’t even want to go back and stay in the
    place forever. With the excitement you will finally crave for their lechon, barbecue, sweet and fresh mangoes, and
    to special mention…… their green mango juice..really yummy and mouth watering. It will surely quench your thirst
    and make you crave for more Cebu delicacies. And finally heading to the enchanting and one of the wonders of the
    world “Boracay Beach”. The white sand and crystal clear water will fade your tiredness and refresh you like
    a flower just starts to bloom. Oh! This is really great…can’t wait to visit Cebu. A perfect getaway for everyone like
    Air Asia that everyone can fly. Hurry and grab it now. Mabuhay ang Cebu at Salamat sa Air Asia!

  • Kathryn Fronda

    The ultimate experience – experiencing Cebu with the docile giants of the sea. It would be amazing to see the “Butandings” for myself, in person. Cebu is the gateway to many alluring, great beaches which I want to visit. I would enjoy bringing my family to the Queen City of the South and try the “Sutukil”. I hope people go to Cebu to help them boost their tourism after their two debilitating tragedies – the earthquake & typhoon Yolanda. We can all enjoy Cebu while helping the people to recover. #SuroySuroySaCebu

  • Michelle Beh

    Take off to Cebu via AirAsia✈️
    Tourist-ing the city’s historical galleria

  • Zahar Amir

    The coolest thing about Cebu was going swimming with the
    largest fish in the sea “The Whale Sharks” and that’s the fact I read on
    Wikipedia. Some say I’m fear the water, but really I’m more fear of drowning.
    Snorkeling near Moalboal is probably the closest one’ll ever get to pet and play
    chasing tail with this gentle giant since I sure not all of us a diver… I can’t
    wait exploring the beautiful coral reef and meet other marine creatures like
    turtles, barracuda and schools of shark and survived to tell the tale, last and
    not least the travel brochure did mentions “fish more fun in the Philippines”. P.s love to explore Cebu by experience…

  • fui teng

Hope Air asia can make my dream come true !!!!

  • Wang JX

    I would love to travel to Cebu for its beaches, especially Bantayan Island. With numerous smaller islands around, it is a good idea to do island hopping. Imagine cuddling with your partner in a hammock, sipping cocktails under a coconut tree, listening to the waves in tune to the strumming of the ukulele. That’s Perfection. Though I have never traveled anywhere further than Singapore, Philippines can be a good start. ASEAN Rocks!

  • nur adilla ashikin samsu bhari

    i would love to visit the most in cebu is boracay island for my 1st honeymoon.people keep talking, boracay is the best beach in the world..Boracay has a long stretch of beach and has the finest white sand..and the most important i love to travel with AIR ASIA..Cheap airfare, commendable staffs, good looking FA’s, delicious in flight meals and smooth plane ride. These are just few reasons why we’re in Love at First Flight with AIR ASIA….

  • Christ

    I would love to visit and experience the most in cebu is Magellan’s Cross because
    that means the world to me, I want to know more about history of Magellan’s Cross.

  • Choo Suan Hee

    I love to take off to Cebu because..it has yummy Zubuchon lechon (whole roasted pig) that make you go crazy, the idyllic beaches that make you go lazy, the sexy girl that dance with fire, never let my visa expire! Yummy street food with a delicious food, to get to Cebu I’m in such a hurry! So Help me AirAsia, PUT ME ON A PLANE, if I don’t go I will go insane.

  • Mohd Ridzuan

    Yeah, i like the beaches like the northern islands of Bantayan and Malapascua . Anytime i go to beach i feel like i’m walking on the real boarders of countries and that i can trace myself on the map without a radar.

  • Zalekha Yazid

    I haven’t been to Cebu, or any part of The Philippines. We weren’t exposed much to The Philippines in school.

    Thanks to Air Asia, I know more of Cebu now. Cebu gets sun-all-year just like KL!
    Sunny is always nice cos I wouldn’t want to go to a country that’s too extreme in weather. At least, not now when my budget doesn’t stretch that far.

    Architecture really gets me. I love old buildings, smell of old towns and buildings just keeps me in awe. Beaches are a plus point. And Philippines is really famous for white-sandy beaches. When there’s beaches, there’s definitely seafood, my staple food!

    And of course the Fort! There’s so much to see in Cebu. But since I get to pick only one. Here goes :-

    Magellan’s Cross would be one of my pick in Cebu,
    But I need more time to think on what to do
    If I could I have my say
    Swimming, snorkelling, and soaking up the Sun. Where else but the World-famous Boracay!
