Cebu as a Developing City2
The bustling streets of Cebu only show how it has developed through the years. With the Spanish colonization decades ago who would have thought that this city would come this far. The elders are known to be very meticulous and conservative, which became a huge block for change. As years passed by, modernization hit Cebu without a choice and instantly converted into a major player in the Philippine economy. Malls and business establishments began sprouting like mushrooms and industrialization has never stopped since then.
Cebu like other cities in the Philippines is rich with natural resources from white sand beaches to picturesque mountains. No wonder the Spaniards took hold of the Philippines during those times even other countries were very interested to grab this small island in Asia. As years passed by Cebu went on with the trend realizing that change is the way to prosperity.
Even though changes took place tremendously, the culture was unbelievably preserved proving that Cebuanos have a tenacity of remembering where they came from and at the same time clearly embracing changes for its own good. As you drive around Cebu City, you can see how it has developed into something that can be both competitive and preserving to its culture.
