Cebu is a province of the Philippines that consists of the main island and 167 smaller islands, including the Mactan, Bantayan, Malapascua and Olango islands.

 

With its tropical climate,  Cebu attracts more than two million tourists a year on its white-sand beaches, making it one of the most popular island destinations for travelers.

 

Cebu is also a place that offers a lot to do for those looking for adrenaline-pumping activities.

 

Outdoor activities are the most popular and include canyoneering at Kawasan Canyon and whale shark swimming.

 

Cebu is also famous for its cheap, yet delicious street food. Popular street foods in Cebu are Kwek Kwek, deep-fried batter-covered boiled egg, Bakasi, a sea eel dish, and Ngohiong, the Cebuano version of spring roll.

 

A round-trip flight to Cebu on average can costs approximately $1,200, but as airline companies get ready for Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Travel Deal Tuesday, there are some flight deals from New York that will get you to Cebu for less than $500 round-trip.


 

According to Skyscanner, a leading global travel search site where people plan and book trips, China Eastern Airlines has flight deals to Cebu for travel dates throughout the month April of 2019.

 

The cheapest flight from New York are from April 1 to April 15 for $399 round-trip, according to Skyscanner. That price is a third of what it would cost in the month of December and beats Google Flights by half the price.

 

 

For the best rates, view the whole month of April in Skyscanner to compare the prices.

 

The cheapest flight leaving New York will require a 15-hour layover in Shanghai going to Cebu, and at least a 3-hour layover on the way back.

 

Keep in mind when booking this ticket, that the seat is in economy class, so be sure to check with the airlines’ baggage requirements.
