The province isn’t just a place to escape to, it’s a place where you can enjoy life and make the most out of every day.

The Best of City and Provincial Living

In Cebu, you’ll never have to choose between the busy city or the slow-paced provincial lifestyle. One of the unique features of Cebu is its ability to embrace rapid urban progress without losing its natural touch.

You can start your day by the beach and make it to work by 9 in the morning. Due to the way the province is laid out and the new road infrastructure, the business districts are easily accessible to more residential areas outside of the city proper. For instance, families who choose to live in a house and lot for sale in Carcar (39 km outside Metro Cebu) for a more quiet neighborhood won’t miss out on all the urban establishments that the city has to offer since it will only take them a bus ride or a leisurely drive to get to the city center.

There are lots of lifestyle options in Cebu, both for the urbanites and countryside homebodies.

Booming Business Capital

Next to the country’s capital, Cebu is arguably one of the Philippines’ biggest economic hubs. For decades, Cebu has been largely agricultural, producing products like corn, rice, mango, coconut, banana, peanut, and sugar. However, with the rapid rise of technology and business acumen in the Philippines, the province is now a powerhouse in the following industries: manufacturing, retail, real estate, and professional and business services.

This means that there are countless opportunities for jobs and business ventures in Cebu. Whether you’re looking to further your career or start a new venture, Cebu’s blossoming economy will surely have a place for you.

A Cultural Melting Pot

From festivals like Sinulog and Dinagat to delicacies such as budbod and masi, there’s a trove of culture to unearth in Cebu. The province is made up of municipalities and cities with their own rich histories and local specialty products. Take, for example, those who have bought and settled in a house and lot for sale in Bogo and are treated to the Pintos festival, the city’s major fiesta traditionally celebrating an abundant harvest.

Cebu has also become home to a slew of characters from Mindanaons to expats who have put down roots in Cebu. They’ve brought their own flavors, beliefs, and characters with them, making Cebu a multicultural mixing pot where everyone is welcome.

Jumpoff Point for Travel

Cebu is geographically at the heart of the country, making it a great springboard for domestic and international travels. There are seaports throughout the province where you can board ferries to take you to neighboring provinces and even to Manila. You can even get from Cebu to Dumaguete or Bohol via maritime travel in just a few hours.

If you prefer traveling by air, Cebu also has an international airport, the Mactan-Cebu International Airport, serviced by airlines that fly both domestically and internationally. Additionally, there are also plans of opening more airports in the province. An advantage of Cebu’s location is that almost every other domestic airport is only an hour’s flight away, making it ideal for those who love to travel.

Reasonable Cost of Living in Cebu

For all the great things you can get living in Cebu, the attainable costs may be one of the best benefits. Compared to Manila, the price of food and essentials are relatively lower in Cebu. Fresh produce is also easy to come by since the province grows its own crops and has seafood in abundance.

When it comes to real estate, there’s something for every budget. Even if Cebu province holds one of the most progressive metropolitan areas, it’s not half as densely populated as cities in Metro Manila. This allows property developers to create residential projects and put them out on the market for reasonable prices.
