Lahug

Originally the location of Cebu’s only airport, Lahug is one of the busiest barangays in Cebu City. The Lahug Airport was the primary landing site of all aircrafts prior to Mactan Airport. Under the constant threat of possible crashes in the heart of the city, they just had to move the airport to another island. Since there is a larger landing area is Mactan, which is closer to the sea, therefore making it a more ideal location just in case of an accident.

Now, Lahug Airport is a backup landing site just in case the Mactan Airport is at full capacity. Aside from that, Lahug is a barangay mostly comprised of several commercial hotels and resorts, the famous Cebu IT Park, and Salinas Drive.

Many of the guests that come into Cebu stay at these hotels. With the likes of Marco Polo Plaza and Waterfront Cebu, this place is booming with activity, especially from both national and foreign elites. Aside from that, if you wish to eat at the best buffet in Metro Cebu, try out Cafe Marco located in Marco Polo. Many of the residents visit the hotel just for the buffet.

Other hotels in the area include, Diplomat Hotel, Holiday Plaza Hotel, St. Moritz Hotel, and Cebu Northwinds.

IT Park has been bustling with activities since it first opened. The park is home to several buildings that house business offices, restaurants, bars, and a few shopping stalls. In the recent years, with the park’s rapid development, it has become the top go-to place by many of the students and people of the workforce. It caters to both nightlife and lifestyle needs.

Salinas Drive is home to several foodie destinations including the La Vie Parisienne, The Pink House, and Circa 1900.

If you really want to get to the heart of the busy Queen City of the South, Lahug is definitely the place to be.
