    cebu is still the best among all other places in the philippines

    Hello Jolay,
    Maybe but there some more places better than cebu like Palawan, Camiguin Island why not Dakak, hmmm?

    Thank you for commenting.

  3. cebuano says:

    Palawan is not fully equipped compared to Cebu. If a tourist will need medical attention, Cebu’s hospitals are JCI and QHA Trent accredited, so the services are internal compared to Palawan and Camiguin.

    If someone in Palawan or Camiguin will have a freak accident, where would they go?

    Do Palawan and Camiguin have decent hospitals (passed internal standards)?

    Cebu is still the best. Cebu is complete…

  5. gJZPNW Very good post. Cool.

    hi cebuano,
    Yes you are right. However, Palawan is pretty good city too. I am sure they will provide same services as Cebu in the near future.

    I’ve been looking using the net quite a few hrs presently, but hardly ever found any specific attention-grabbing page like the one you have. It is really good-looking worth enough for me personally. In my opinion, if all of website owners and bloggers made excellent content resources you did, the web will most likely be considerably more helpful than everbefore.I may book mark this blog !! Will obviously go through all over again !! Thanks with the worthwhile details.
