Points of interest in Cebu City

Taoist Temple Taoist Temple - located inside an upscale subdivision, the temple is at the top of a hundred steps, with traditional Chinese motifs, resident monks and another view of the city and outlying islands below.

Outside the City

Diving in Moalboal Cebu Diving in Moalboal - Moalboal is a small town some 90 kilometres away from Cebu City, known in the diving community for its coral formations.

Malapascua Island Cebu City Malapascua Island - The simple life goes on here, about 100 kilometres north of the metro.
