Carmen and Dave from http://www.double-barrelledtravel.com visit the beautiful Radisson Blu Hotel in Cebu City in The Philippines.
From the blog:
Cebu City in the Philippines is a boom town.
Back in the early ’90s it had what was nickamed a ‘Ceboom’ and the good times are back – there are plans to expand the city’s airport to four times its present capacity and widen this gateway to the Central and Southern Philippines.
And the pace is quickening everywhere.
Job outsourcing, tourist services, maritime trade, transportation and shipbuilding drive the local economy in top gear.
The streets rush with traffic. The shop tills cha-ching and ker-chang, and from sunrise to sunset the locals work hammer and tongs in the dockyards moving vast seas of shipping containers onto waiting cargo vessels.
With a capacity of 400 rooms, Radisson Blu Cebu City often has 70% occupancy or more – and when we stayed there the conference rooms were full of seminars and meetings from Microsoft developers to the local Chamber of Commerce and the Peace Corps.
And of course there were tourists just like us – hundreds of them exploring the island of Cebu or on their way to the paradise islands beyond, or taking a breather while they headed to some far-flung destination. Australians, English, Americans, Chinese, Indians, Koreans – scores of nationalities came through the polished front doors and into the vaulted marble lobby.
