I’ll try and be honest with you. For the second largest city in the Philippines, there’s really not that much to do in Cebu City as a tourist. But, if you do take the few hours to try and explore this city for what it has to offer, Fort (Fuerza de) San Pedro is probably one of the must sees of the city. Dating back as far as the 16th century, it’s the oldest fort in the Philippines, mainly serving the Spanish as they took hold of the area.
