Cebu, a province in the Central Visayas region of the Philippines is home to what is known as Metro Cebu.

The other six (6) cities are Carcar, Danao, Mandaue, Naga, Talisay and Lapu-Lapu City.
Cebu’s economy continues to grow driven by vibrant tourism on one side. There is a charm to Cebu’s rich history from the arrival of Spain’s Ferdinand Magellan in 1521 to the introduction of Christianity and the events that unfolded here during World War 2. Cebu has natural parks, world-famous waterfalls, white sand beaches and a rich marine ecosystem but also, an active entertainment scene and nightlife.
On the other side, Cebu has become a seat of growth in manufacturing, IT services, trade and Business Process Outsourcing. Its accessibility by water and air is also a big help to the industries it caters to.
