Wazzup Pilipinas!

The Philippines is such an amazing place to spend your holiday. During summer you get an opportunity to bask under the tropical sun. Its rich natural treasures, scrumptious foods, feisty festivals, and vibrant culture attract people all over the world. The tropical climate makes Philippines a perfect place to enjoy. Most of its islands are surrounded by Pacific Ocean providing a cool climate. The clean beaches provide a serene environment.

Most notable is Cebu, a tropical paradise consisting of Cebu Island and 167 other islands. Its white sand beaches are teeming with diverse aquatic life. Our visit to Cebu a few months ago is living proof that there really are a lot of beautiful destinations within its islands. I can't wait to go back and explore more of its wonders.

According to Wikipedia, the name "Cebu" came from the old Cebuano word sibu or sibo ("trade"), a shortened form of sinibuayng hingpit ("the place for trading"). It was originally applied to the harbors of the town of Sugbo, the ancient name for Cebu City. Sugbo, in turn, was derived from the Old Cebuano term for "scorched earth" or "great fire".
