How To Get There
By plane:

You must have an ongoing flight ticket or a visa in your passport when flying to the Philippines as your carrier will not allow you to board without one. In practice, this may not actually be true.

By boat:

Cebu City’s domestic port is the country’s busiest. Cebu City is home to almost 80 percent of the country’s passenger vessels. The country’s largest shipping lines, namely WG&A, Sulpicio Lines, Trans-Asia, George & Peter Lines and Lorenzo Shipping Lines, are headquartered in Cebu.

By jeepney:

Do as the locals do and catch a colorful jeepney. Simply ask around for which route to take. They are available 24 hours and cover most of the nooks and crannies of the city. Airport to Lapu Lapu City (LLC) costs about 7 pesos, while across the bridge to Mandaue or Cebu City costs more than 10 pesos.
If you go and explore some slum street neighborhood then you can ride a tricycle on the streets too small for a jeepney and get a jeepney once back on the main street.

By bus

Buses are also available but these tend to ply exclusively along the north-south route.

By taxi

If you do not wish to give up western comforts take a taxi. Always insist on a metered fare. Most trips around the city should cost not much more than 100 peso (usually less).
Drivers however may bargain if they notice that you are a tourist, hence the cost of the trip may double in price. However, you have the option not to agree and may report such to local authorities. If you know the name of the building, establishment, area or street you wish you reach, this is still the fastest way to get to your destination. Most drivers know where almost everything is. If they don’t, then simply flag down another one. If the driver is pleasant then it is nice to pay 10-20 pesos extra for nice service and a bit more if he loads or unloads your bags. Most drivers do not have, or will tell you they do not have change, so be ready with 50′s and 20′s if you are going on short trips.
