Is the traffic that bad in Cebu, do I need to plan for one destination of the island.  I talking about a possible 3 day trip there..funny thing about me, I never been anywhere  in the Phils. But the rock of Luzon island. I am contemplating of making advance plans or what. 

Depends on the time of day and where you are. It's not always choked.

You should be able to get across the city in three days. :hystery:   Seriously though, it is bad as others have mentioned.  Take Dave's suggestion and use a taxi.  Do not even consider trying to do the driving  yourself.

Could you please advise what time and where it's not chocked, apart perhaps early am. I am driving there about once a month and travel a lot in the city, it's always chocked, this is between 11am an 6pm. Soon as dark I park up, if going out at night its a taxi.

Well as a comparison on the island (not just the city) - I have done 2 trips from Cebu (Guadalupe Bgy) to Moalboal on the other side of the island.

Distance according to Google maps is just 86km  - with the current driving estimate of 3 hours 5 mins. I have never done the trip in less than 3h hours 40 mins.

Last month back in AU I took my GF from Brisbane City to the northern part of the Gold Coast - distance was 84 km - did that in 55 minutes - with roadworks at the southern end. 

You get the idea ...... she sure got a shock too :smile:

I might need this boat patrolling the shores when I visit a Mactan resort
