Fireworks were originally used by the ancient Chinese to ward off evil spirits and bring in good luck. They were also normally used during festivities. This practice was carried on up until today and is one of the things people look forward to every New Year. While the households in Cebu used to light up their own fireworks when the clock struck twelve, these days many are flocking to hotels to watch their fireworks displays. This is more practical and Cebuanos can enjoy the celebration with their family and it also makes the event special and memorable.

With the New Year fast-approaching, we looked for some places where you can celebrate the New Year Countdown 2020 in Cebu. And we found several hotels where you can have a New Year 2020 countdown in Cebu with end-of-the-year parties and spectacular fireworks displays. Read on to find out where!
