Last minute holiday to Cebu

Hey guys and girls!!

I know this is short notice but several friends and I have decided to go on a last minute two week break to Cebu on the 23/9. We have booked flights but not yet booked accommodation, we're not sure if a rented villa/condos or hotel would suit us more so any advice on that would be helpful. I was wondering if renting a car or minibus would be necessary or are taxis and public transport cheap enough and reliable? Any advice or recommendations on food, restaurants, beaches and shopping malls would be most helpful too. Once in Cebu I would love to travel around and see other parts of the Philippines too, what other areas are worth a visit and are flights to Manila cheap? Any advice on anything to do with cebu/Philippines would be great, I know I can research most of this myself but we'll be going so soon and I have so much to sort out in so little time, I'm not being lazy...... I promise!!

Must see's and must do's in Cebu?

Must don'ts? ( manners and cultural differences)

Best restaurants & bars?

Things to avoid?

Just absolutely any info on Cebu and surrounding areas please

Hope everybody has a great day and happy traveling to all you travelers!! Alan :)

Kawasan was closed for renovation a month or 2 ago but not sure if it's already open. Try the beaches up north instead - Bantayan or Malapascua.
