About 10 to 15 minutes drive from Cebu Business Park sans traffic, along Salinas Drive is Cebu IT Park. It is just a stone throw away from another popular Cebu landmark, the Waterfront Cebu City Hotel and Casino.
For those not very familiar with Cebu IT Park, it is the hub of Cebu's Business Process Outsourcing Industry (BPO) and home to most of the information technology and related services companies. Majority of the new working force in Cebu City find jobs here. Hence it can be said, it is the new and vibrant economic hub of Cebu City.
Let's take a peek inside Cebu IT Park...

I find Cebu IT Park pretty with its tree-lined avenues and beautiful landscape. It has a good location too in the city. It reminds me so much of Makati when I used to work there, only a smaller version. But I think it is in fact much prettier compared to Makati because Cebu is quite small that one can easily see mountain or sea views from the sky rise buildings. It is a good reminder that we are not in a purely concrete jungle. However the only thing that can mar its advantages is - during rush hours in the late afternoon and early evening, traffic in Salinas Drive and neighboring Banilad is really terrible.
