Cebu City is known as the Queen City of the South in the Philippines. It is the second biggest metropolitan in the country, next to the capital. It is progressing rapidly with many big international companies expanding there. It is also known for its many tourist spots like white sand beaches and the historical Magellan Cross. It is a nice city wherein you will never run out of activities to do and places to visit.

Cebu City is a great place to stay and live in, especially for those who love the mountains or beaches. One can opt to drive south or north to access both. The locals are also very friendly. The food in Cebu City is absolutely delicious and it comes with a cheap price!

Cebu City is considered as a highly urbanized city in the Philippines. Expect that there would be traffic congestion. But it is not as congested as Metro Manila. So, if you are planning to commute to work, make sure that you leave the house at least 2 hours early than your shift. If you are planning on renting a house or an apartment, you better keep in mind that it would range from 5,000 to 10,000 PHP per month. You can also choose the ones accessible to transportation and malls. I recommend you to stay in Talamban. It has a lot of jeepneys that have routes to the Cebu downtown area or to most of the business establishments. And this place also has malls and stores near to most of the apartments.

My city is cheap but at a price. I am aware of the irony of that statement, but just bear with me for a and transportation and lodging is inexpensive, but you also sacrifice quality, safety and efficiency in choosing to move here, so although I am loyal to my city, that loyalty is forged from years and years of experience and forced familiarity and I really do not recommend people try it, especially Westerners. Culture shock will be an understatement for lack of a better word.

Before moving to Cebu City, know even though Cebu province is considered laid back, Cebu City is a very busy city. You’ll deal with heavy traffic and hassle commuting everyday, even on the weekends. During rush hours, you’ll experience bumper to bumper traffic and roads will only begin to steer clear at 9pm. The city can also be very dangerous at night so, it’s not really recommend and proven safe to walk the streets alone. Nonetheless, Cebu City is also a good place since everything is just a travel away like when you want to go to beach, mountains, mall, etc.

Truthfully speaking, there’s a lot of slum areas that can be seen. Homeless people can also be seen just wandering in the streets, and some, under the bridges. Although, what I’ve said can considered be cons, it is the truth. On the other hand, it is still a good city. It really is deserving of its title “The Queen City of the South”.

This city is quite fast-paced; with heavy traffic all day and where people are always in a hurry. Tourists are also everywhere – especially Koreans, Japanese, and Chinese nationals. But even with all that, it’s a great city! It’s a cultural hot pot of so many diverse cultures. The people are also friendly!

Cebu City is a really nice place for a short vacation, even if you don’t have much time to travel, because all the popular sights are only within a few hours of each other. Bustling city, Mountain views, White sand beaches, good food, we have it all. Affordable, accessible, and overall, enjoyable.

Something to know about my city is the heavy traffic that one must be wary of. Cebu City is one of the most populated cities next to Manila, the city’s capital.
