The annual celebration of Sinulog Festival is in honor of Senyor Sto. Niño. It is a solemn but festive gathering at the same time. People shout “Viva Pit Señor” during the festivity. Pit means ‘sangpit’ which means to call upon while ‘senyor’ refers to the Holy Child Sto. Niño de Cebu. This year’s month-long celebration started from December 1, 2016 and concluded on January 31, 2017.

The Sinulog features a parade and a dance-prayer that expresses devotion to the holy child of Cebu. Those who attend the vibrant festival will witness a colorful cultural encounter of Cebu.

If you’re planning on a staycation in the province and if you’re taking part in the month-long celebration, it might be best to buy that house and lot in Cebu instead.

A walk in the museum is like a journey thru Cebu’s history.

These are the reasons why Cebu is a great place to spend your New Year. t If you want a nonstop experience of everything, you know you have a great place to live in.

2.Raining during the day is so rare that you can enjoy the sunshine almost every day.

3.It is really close to nature. You can have lunch at the beach and spend the afternoon on Mount Apo, which is, just the highest mountain in the country, all on the same day! Yes, you can both enjoy the beach and hike the highest mountain in the country on the very same day. Then have a good night sleep in your Davao condo!

4.The city is large, but not as crowded like in Manila and Cebu. Davao City is the largest city in the world in terms of size, yet the population is small enough that you can drive on the roads smoothly with no traffic problems.

5.Because the city is big enough, people can easily, readily get western foods and other items that foreigners or expats would desire. This makes everyone’s life more comfortable, just like a tourist city lifestyle.

7.Like in Manila, you can enjoy many amenities in Davao City too, but the prices here are much lower. People can live here for about 1/3 of the price of the same lifestyle would cost in big cities like Manila or Cebu. Living in Davao condominium is so much affordable in every aspect.

8.Davao’s airport is one of the best in Asia. You can be anywhere in the Philippines in less than two hours, with an affordable flight from Davao International Airport.  Actually, flights from Davao to Manila are about six times a day (on 4 different airlines).

9.Life expectancy in Davao is the longest in the Philippines at 70. This may be due to efficient and effective medical services and programs. Also, it is good to note that Davao City has its own 911 Emergency Response Team
