BLOG: Retiring in Cebu

You’ve worked for more than 30 years. All your life you have only thought of how you can provide for your family. How to save up for your future trips abroad with your wife. How to pay for your children’s school expenses. What to do earn that promotion.

Work. Work. Work.

And finally you have made it. All your kids have graduated from college and they have stable jobs now. You can start planning your trips abroad with your lovely wife; shopping in Hong Kong, probably go trekking in the Himalayas, visit the Vatican, sunbathe in Maldives, wave to the Queen, all those things that you’ve daydreamed of while you were busy stacking papers to beat the deadlines.

Now you’re retired. You got the compensation you deserved. You went home to the house you built with your blood, sweat, and tears. You lay on the couch, your check in one hand, your wife on the other. Both of you staring at the check and thinking, “Where should we go first?”

What if I told you that you don’t have to too far? What if all you needed to see is right here in Cebu.

Shopping? Dozens of malls in Cebu!

Trekking in the Himalayas? Hey, there’s the Osmena Peak!

Visit the Vatican? Well, we have the oldest, most iconic church in Cebu – the Basilica del Sto Nino.

Sunbathe in Maldives? Cebu is an Island. Everywhere you go, you are bound to end up on a beach!

Still not satisfied? Allow me to convince you why you should retire in Cebu.

Weather. There are only two – wet and dry. Wet season usually occurs from October to February. The rest of the year? Perfect vacation weather.

Accessibility. Cebu is right at the heart of the country. We are the new gateway for you to travel the entire Philippines. What with the new airport terminal coming in June 2018, welcoming an additional 5 million passengers annually? In fact, we will also be the new gateway for Filipinos who want to travel abroad. We’re opening up new flight destinations so you don’t need to go to Manila where most of your time will be spent on the road because of traffic.

Affordability. You have no idea where your $100 can bring you and what it could buy you. 1kg of chicken is $3, 1kg of pork is $5, flag down of taxi fare is $0.80, you see where I’m getting at?

Hospitality. The people here are so friendly, it’s ridiculous.

Scenic spots. From magnificent waterfalls to majestic beaches to spectacular views from mountains, you’d be asking yourself why you only thought of retiring in the Philippines today.

Choose Philippines. Choose Cebu.
