Greetings kabayan's
Like any place, be street smart.
Remember for the lack of work in RP
The crime rate could be worse then it is.
Keeping in mind if you are a Americana,
Or not from The Philippines.
Most times if a cab driver is demanding
for you to hire him, observe him, if he is edgy
Feet tapping, etc. shabu is a # 01 substance
Widely used. Most cabbies work around the clock and they don't drink coffee?
So some work and get caught up in a catch 22.
Even children are street smart at a very young age, and rub there tummy and say gutom.
Makes you feel sad, but be careful always, no matter were you are in the world.
Other then that, relax and enjoy a java at Bo's!

my name is Robert I've been thinking about coming to Cebu Philippines to stay for good. getting a house and starting a business. I see there's a problem with corruption people getting mugged in broad daylight and people selling drugs. but the other crime is very minimal. my concern is I hope the police is very efficient when things do happen like that and clean up Cebu. or let the military do it

I have been to Cebu many times - just watch out for human trafficking even boys in the early teens can abuse
