The province of Cebu has been prominent in the tourism sector that it has become one of the top tourist destinations in the country. It is the rural south side of Cebu that has been very prominent in inviting non-local and foreign guests to stay in that place. Cebu’s south has the most scenic and marvelous water and landform still existing. Time after time despite the numerous changes in the surrounding and the economy’s progression towards modernization, most tourist spots in the province remained natural and untouched as it was before. Locals designated in those areas made a great job in maintaining and safe-guarding those places.
Badian and Osmena peak are two places very well sought after by tourists and pretty much in their itinerary. The Kawasan falls to Osmeña peak day tour and or activity usually is the province’s cup of tea, the places that Cebu is taking pride of. Badian has the best waterform there is and tourists kept coming in to stay for a day. With activities such as rafting and cliff jumping, these are more than enough to keep their adrenaline pumping and have fun. Osmena peek on the other hand is one of the highest mountain in the province with an elevation of 1,000 meters above sea level. A place perfect for an overnight camp and just watch the sun set from the east.
