As early as now, it is good that you plan your yearly travels and you have to start of course from the very first month of the year, January 2013.
If you are a first time traveler and want to go solo, you can start exploring our country's own local destination. Why don't you catch up the Sinulog Festival 2013 of Cebu? It is usually scheduled on the 3rd sunday of the month of January. It is dubbed as the most colorful festival in the Philippines that pays tribute to the child Jesus through its merry dances and celebration.
Aside from the festival, what to expect?
Well, get to taste the no. 1 delicacy in town and that is LECHON! Cebu is also known for chicharon, puso, torta, bibingka and other local foods. You've got to try at least one of it when you visit the place.
How do you commute around the vicinity?
There are jeepneys available so as taxi cabs that can take you to your chosen destination. You can hop from one mall to another. Or switch from one restaurant to some fancy food stalls.
