Cebu IT Park

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...

People love to sit here when the afternoon is cooler
Cafes at the sidewalk
Taxis are very accessible at the doorsteps
Nice looking skyrises
Plants integrated in the sidewalk landscape - love it!

Roads interconnecting inside the IT Park
Some jeepneys are allowed to pass within for convenience in moving from one area to another
The Walk
There are many fast foods and restaurants available to choose from
Pretty landscape and trees that provide shade
Pretty fishes in the cute water pond

Globe has its Building here also
Qualfon Building
I'm sure this area is filled with people in the evenings

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.
