Christmas in the Philippines is unparalleled. Fitting for a country that is considered one of those who celebrate Christmas the longest. As soon as the ''ber'' months arrive, Christmas carols can already be heard on the radio, brightly lit decorations are already being put up, and who can resist a slew of holiday treats and deals.
Filipinos traditionally come home to celebrate Christmas with family, attend simbang gabi together, eat traditional Christmas delicacies like bibingka and puto bumbong before having Noche Buena or Christmas dinner at midnight with the entire clan. Families eagerly await this Season as it is a time for rest and family bonding.
However, this year if you want to experience something different than the traditional Filipino Christmas, one of the things you can try is to head to Mactan. The thriving island in Cebu brings an Asian Tropicana vibe to holiday celebrations as you can bask under the sun and relax while enjoying the blue waters of Mactan Bay. Mactan also takes pride in its diverse collection of tourist spots and activities that individuals and families can enjoy. There is no lack of good food to try or new sights to see.
So, whether you are a Cebuano returning home or a Manileño visiting, wherever you are from, you must not miss a trip to the island of Cebu.
Redefine your Christmas experience
Mactan also hosts a hotel that showcases the unique blend of warm Filipino Christmas and pleasant Thai hospitality.
Dusit Thani Mactan Cebu is a resort hotel that is on the northern tip of the Punta Engaño Peninsula, accessible to visitors via a 20-30-minute ride from the Mactan-Cebu International Airport.
The hotel has around 272 well-appointed guest rooms and luxury suite accommodations to choose from. Every room has a one-of-a-kind ocean view, and other rooms even have a private balcony where visitors can unwind, fall asleep while watching the night sky and wake up to the beauty of the sunrise.
It also offers a dining experience at an open-air lobby with food ranging from familiar and traditional Filipino dishes to the exotic blend of spices and sweet and sour flavors of Thai food.
There is even a lively sports bar where guests can have fun sipping sunset drinks while bonding over billiard games, catching big game events, or simply grooving to the live entertainment provided. For those who prefer light meals, there is a delicatessen where you can grab freshly-baked goods, coffees, milk teas, fruit smoothies, and sweet frappes.
