The Visayas are a group of islands in the Philippines, one of three major principalities in the country, after Mindanao and Luzon. The major islands in the Visayas are Cebu, Siquijor, Guimaras, Leyte, Samar, Negros and Bohol.

Cebu City is the region’s economic lifeline. The Mactan-Cebu International Airport is nearby (on Mactan Island) so getting here is not a problem (Mactan Island is connected to Cebu City by two bridges). Mactan-Cebu International Airport is actually the Philippines’ second busiest airport and many international flights arrive and depart from here, including from the west.

The Visayas consist of hundreds of islands. But island hopping is not an issue because most of the islands are connected by ferries or speed boats. So you do not have to fear being stuck any where.
