I have just purchased a ticket to HKG (05-17 Mar) on TK. Obviously, we are not planning to spend 12 days in HKG so we are looking for something interesting/different to do for about 1 week. I was thinking Cebu could be a good alternative as it is not too far away and is good value for money. There are daily nonstop slights on CX which makes it very accessible too...
However, I am not completely sure if the place is as pretty as it looks on the pictures. It seems to be the second most densely populated city in the Philippines. Too much for a tropical paradise I thought. Is Cebu the Philippines equivalent of Phuket?
What other alternatives would you guys recommend in the area? Possible not more than 4-5 hours of flying and possibly sunny and warm
P.S: How do you pronounce Cebu?
