Though it is a small island it has something for everyone; lavish nightclubs and discos, luxurious massage and spa treatments and a 24-hour casino. If you come here as a single guy, a good start might be at the road between Mactan Bridge and Lapu Lapu City. It is the best known nightspot on the island.Read More
