    What's Cebu City Like for Expats?

    Cebu City is located on the island of Cebu in the southern half of the Philippine islands. The city is the country’s oldest city and was its initial capital.  The city has become quite prosperous over the years, with its status as the Philippines’ second biggest port (behind Manila) and recent boom in the IT industry accounting for steady growth over the past few years. Cebu City is an important cultural center for the Philippines. One of the more famous landmarks in the city is the Magellan Cross, which was reported to have been erected by Ferdinand Magellan himself when he landed in the Philippines in 1521. Every January the city celebrates the Sinulog Festival, which focusses on the former patron saint of the city Santo Niño. Settle in Cebu City faster with InterNations — the world’s trusted expat network.

    InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Kuala Lumpur or Hong Kong, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

    Connect With Other Expats in Cebu City

    InterNations is unique to other social networks because it offers you the chance to connect with people offline, as well as on the screen. Of course, the platform enables you to securely communicate with other expats (our members are verified before joining), but the events organized every month in Cebu City by the Ambassadors and Consuls create an environment where you can meet new people from all over the world. Questions on moving abroad are always better answered by expats themselves. They’ll know what public transportation ticket you should get for your commute, as well as what to do if you get sick. Build your support network in the Philippines with InterNations and gain crucial advice from our expats in Cebu City.

      The idea of getting to know other expats in Manila was very appealing to me, and I've greatly expanded my network in the Philippines.
