• ► Sinulog

    In the Philippines, there is a place that probably has the longest continuous celebration – starting from September when Christmas songs, ‘Merry Christmas!” to the shouting of “Pit Senyor!” during the Sinulog Festival culminating on the third Sunday of January. This goes beyond the feast of Epiphany which ends the Advent Season.

  • The Sinulog Festival is one of the biggest festivals in the Philippines. Every year, thousands of tourists and locals experience the spectacle and grandeur of Cebu’s biggest celebration. People from around the world travel to the city to witness the events, while fellow Filipinos from outside Cebu island also travel to take part in the Grand Parade.

  • In Cebu City, the Fuente Osmeña Circle is a popular go-to place for any resident. Located in the dead center of the city, Fuente is home to the busiest traffic and loudest sidewalks. Every person who has been to Cebu has heard of or has gone to Fuente.

  • All you need is to hang a colorful star-shaped lantern outside your house and you will already fit in with the locals. The Christmas lantern is a quick reminder that Santa Claus is coming to town.

  • Valentine’s Day is a highly celebrated holiday around the world. Thousands of couples spend their time looking for fun places to go on a date. Some stay at home, while others go out to spend quality time together.
