Cebu is probably better than Metro Manila for Digital Nomad status in the Philippines if you don’t require the services or commercial HQs of Manila. Located in the middle of the Philippines in what is known as the Visayas region, Cebu is the second major metropolitan location in the Philippines. You will find everything in Cebu that you will in Manila, however a lot of the corporate offices here are Beta locations, although you will find that other than that Cebu has it all without the congestion and overall chaos that can be found in Metro Manila.
The best thing about Cebu is that it is located right on the coast and you can actually swim in these coastal waters, unlike Manila Bay. You can be in the center of the CBD district during the middle of the day and get a Grab to a secluded beach resort within 45 minutes, you simply cannot do this in Metro Manila.
Cebu has a ‘second city’ vibe about it i.e. the people are a lot more laid-back and friendly, as a foreigner you will get more miles out of being from abroad with the locals here than you will in Manila as in Manila the locals don’t think you are anything special. Cebu is really developing its infrastructure quickly as the Philippine Government have centered the countries major tourism around the Cebu region i.e. the airport has recently been re-developed, you can fly to all the major international airports hubs from Cebu, as well as most domestic destinations. There are also a lot of the main Philippine tourist attractions located within a few hours travel of the city center, including Bohol Island which you can reach very quickly by ferry from Cebu harbor.
Because of it’s surrounding natural beauty and available infrastructure Cebu is our TOP PICK to be a Digital Nomad in the Philippines.

Puerto Princesa (Palawan) Nomads
Puerto Princesa is the capital city of Palawan and is accessible by plane from Manila and Cebu, as well as overnight ferries from both major cities, as well as ferry from San Jose in Mindoro (to Coron). The Island of Palawan is the new ‘hot spot’ for Philippine tourism as most of its locations have been overlooked for years in favor of places like Boracay and Bohol.
Coron and El Nido are the most famous tourism spots located to the north of Puerto Princesa and they are post card picture types of places, however not really feasible to be a Digital Nomad unless you can do everything from your laptop and don’t need a major urban center at short notice.
Puerto Princesa is ok as an urban hub, however it is not really comparable to Manila or Cebu as it is very provincial and set up mainly for the port and local business needs. If you want to experience Palawan we recommend it more as a tourist location than a Digital Nomad location, unless of course you can work 100% remotely.

Siargao Island Nomads
Siargao Island is a great place to locate yourself if you like the combinations of surfing, surf/beach culture with a ‘hipster’ vibe. Until recently Siargao Island was relatively undeveloped, however now it is one of the biggest hot spots for younger tourists from Manila, as well as backpackers and foreign travelers. Cebu Pacific now fly here from Manila and we recommend that this is the best way to get here without headaches and hassles.
There is the most famous surfing breaks here, however we still rate Baler as a better all round surfing location. You can also do many other water sports, especially deep sea fishing as the tuna run up past the island offshore.
Due to the influx of tourists from Manila there is a vibe similar to La Union here, however a lot of recent tourist developments have been happening here and as a result Siargao Island is a nice location to enjoy the beach life as well as party at night.
Like Puerto Princesa in Palawan Siargao Island is quite far from a major urban hub like Cebu or Manila, with Davao being the closest major urban hub, however not readily accessible. So if you are going to base yourself here be prepared to bring all your work tools and don’t expect to be able to get to a major urban hub quickly unless you are prepared to fly to Manila.
