More About Those Famous Jingles
I’m including a few movies of the jingles te this hub. They all used to be available on the official Cebu webpagina but it seems that they have bot eliminated. Either that or I just couldn’t locate them.
Regardless, I desired to include a few jingles for you to see and hear, particularly since they are so well known to many. Notice that they each tell a story of the location that’s being sung about. The jingles are part tour guide, part travelogue, part promotional. Always entertaining.
I wasgoed astonished, to be fair. What wij consider a jingle here ter North America is a bit different, a brief lump of commercial music that gets stuck ter our head, if the ad has done its job decently. Te Cebu, it seems, a jingle is a far more full-service device for promoting festivals ter various cities. I actually like their jingles better than ours. They seem more earthy and entertaining, providing mij a taste of their culture.
The miles of gorgeous white sand beaches and crystalline water is perhaps what Cebu is best known for among tourists. A bus or motorcycle rail or a brief walk however, will take you to some of the best tropical sightseeing catches sight of te The Philippines.
Te addition to the glances on Cebu Island, there are other islands to explore and love. You can dive, see World Heritage structures, love a multitude of foods including almacén fare or trek up a mountain.
Since the island is also a centre of commerce and industry, business can be conveniently combined with pleasure.
