Cebu City is considered as the queen City of the South of the Visayas, wherein you can see big malls and many spots to choose from. There are lots of tourist spots that are worth to visit. One of the advantages here in Cebu City is that you can land a job whenever you want to, because there are lots of enterprises.

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 a small island in the Central part of the Philippines, yet it attracts a lot of foreign visitors. The traffic is not that bad, the people are hospitable, and there are a lot of scenic views. The island’s primary attraction are it’s white sand beaches. There are a lot of affordable apartments and condo units that are ready for occupancy. All these are accessible to malls and working places.

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.

If you are moving to Cebu City, you must consider where you will be staying. I suggest living in Lahug and Guadalupe since these places are the nearest to malls, schools, and gyms.

There are a lot of things you may want to consider moving in the city, good ones and bad ones. Bad ones are the prices on food and shelter tend to get expensive here, however materials and things tend to be cheaper than in the provinces and that is due to the sellers are the first buyers which makes things a lot cheaper than when it gets farther in the city.

Cebu City is the most historic city in the Philippines, it marks the birth of our country. A city that has a lot to offer from scrumptious food, world-renowned malls and you can also discover hidden gems within the city.

It is called the “Queen City of the South”. The Cebuanos’ are known to be the best in English speaking and are very kind. The city is so beautiful, it has the biggest and the best shopping malls, tourism spots and people. Even though traffic in the city is terrible, it will be a great experience going to Cebu.

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.

People moving here must be willing to overcome the congested streets and flooded areas. It is filled with cars, motorcycles, and other vehicles. However, even with the stressful environment the people are kind, courteous, and welcoming. There are a number of streets vendors selling local delicacies. Tropical fruit is also very abundant in the markets.

Cebu city is the queen city of the south. The city offers a comfort of urban living. Cebu City, a city south of Manila, is safe. You can wander the islands not worrying about your surroundings or eyes praying at you. They have a business district, shopping malls, quite a number of tourist spots, beaches outside town.

Cebu City’s economy is good. We have malls, factories, manufacturing and other companies that could help you look for a job. In terms of technology, we are not behind. In terms of history, we have so many to tell.

Cebu City is the queen city of the south. We’re smacked right in the middle of both the ocean and the mountains. The best part of living in the city, though, is the food. We have the best local and fusion restaurants all over the city. The malls are scattered all around too.

Cebu City is a nice and safe place. There are many beautiful places to travel for adventures like mountain climbing and hiking. And Cebu City is known for having the tastiest “Lechon”, there are so many places to eat. Colon Street is a great example of place where you can do night market, eat street foods, do shopping and more.

If moving to Cebu City, you need to understand the jeepney alphanumeric codes. These codes indicate where the jeepney passes en route to their destination. You can always opt for a taxi but their calibrated price is Php 40.00 per ride. For one jeepney ride, you can only spend Php 8.00 as a regular passenger.
