You can fly round trip from LAX to Cebu City, Philippines, for $617, including all taxes and fees, on Cathay Pacific.

The fare, subject to availability, is good for departures from March 12 through Dec. 4, excluding June and July.

The State Department rates the Philippines as a 2 on its new four-point scale. That rating means “exercise increased caution.” The country-specific information cites terrorism, bombings and kidnappings, sometimes in tourist areas.

Cebu City is a bustling port. Ferdinand Magellan’s 1521 arrival paved the way for its becoming the islands’ Spanish capital four decades later, an influence that is still visible today.
