which area to stay?

hi good afternoon to all, Magandang Hapon

we planning to visit cebu (perhaps 3 days), We are more to visiting places of interests, given the short span of time, dont think can spare time for island hopping or exploring further to bohol.

Being first time in Cebu, got few questions:

1. which area is the suitable locations to stay? i mean centrally located, where we can have easy access of food, transport, shopping market, casino etc and where possible, within walking distance to the site of interests? Budget around USD80 +/-

2. Would it be safe to walk around the city or any streets that we should avoid? Just like in manila, we would prefer to stay around Makati, where basically it is safe to walk around day & night, and be extra alert when in binondo... (so sorry to ask that, no offence).

3. How about staying at around Archbishop Reyes Avenue? would it be centrally located? Any comment?

4. Is it advisable to rent motorbike to go around island? we read that they need to keep the passports. how about the mode of transportation in cebu? any other way to have a quick glance of the city in half a day, while the 2nd day be allocated for Mactan island, possible? or any other better advice?

salamat

Yes, places around Ayala mall is I think the best place to stay. Especially, if it's your first time. Just like me. Once you get use to it then you can check some other areas.
