More people are considering making a new home in Cebu City. A progressive urban district bounded by pristine beaches, Cebu City is where one can truly experience a fusion of laidback lifestyle and city living.
#CebuConnect is a three-episode online video hosted by businessman and surfer Paolo Soler, who takes viewers on a virtual tour of what’s to eat, where to learn, and how to do business in Cebu.
The first installment of #CebuConnect can already be viewed on the official Facebook page of Robinsons Residences. Here, Paolo visited the city’s top learning institutions that produce globally-competetive graduates such as the historical University of San Carlos, UP Cebu, and Cebu Institute of Medicine (CIM).
Cebu also prides itself as one of the best go-to if majoring in the field of arts. Its International Academy of Film and Television was voted as one of the world’s best film schools by no less than Hollywood Reporter while the University of Visayas New School amps the ‘school is cool’ factor with its visual arts courses and learning activities.
“We’ve featured five out of the many schools in Cebu,” mentioned Paolo in the video. “Whatever path you plan to take, there’s a school here waiting to guide you.”
The second series of #CebuConnect resonates to viewers across multiple market segments as it deals with everyone’s favorite topic: food. Cebu City will never be boring because of its numerous hole-in-the-wall restaurants and cafes which will impress foodies. According to Paolo, “Cebu is fast becoming a culinary destination. New and diverse establishments abound to cater to multi-cultural palates.”
In this video, Paolo walks the viewers through selected popular restaurants that put the city on the food map. His adoration for Rico’s Lechon or Dolce Café’s green tea cake is guaranteed to make viewers catch the next available flight to Cebu.
Meanwhile, the booming business district makes Cebu also a sought-after investment destination. In the final episode of #CebuConnect, Paolo tackled the necessary requirements in establishing a business in Cebu and some hacks on how to accomplish these preps with less effort. From signing forms online, taking advantage of green lanes to other helpful advice like hiring a bookkeeper, Paolo will lead prospective entrepreneurs with useful information.
“It’s a great time to invest in Cebu!” he said. “This is a place where you get the best of both worlds – a city booming with business and laidback people and culture.”
