by PrimaryHomes

Jul 13, 2023

Visayas is a captivating destination that offers a blast of diverse opportunities and lifestyles. Around 17% of Overseas Filipino Workers (OFWs) in the Philippines originate from the Visayas region. 

After years of hard work, many OFWs dream of coming home to a place to raise a family, investment, or a good retirement haven. Finding this place can be challenging since choosing the perfect neighborhood requires careful consideration of one’s needs, preferences, aspirations, and budget. With so many places to choose from, let’s take a look at the top Visayas neighborhoods where OFWs can build their future home: 

  1. Mactan, Cebu

With its pristine beaches, thriving economic zone, and world-class airport, Mactan Island has become a desirable location for OFWs. The Mactan-Cebu International Airport hosts 27 domestic destinations and 13 international routes, making it one of the most accessible places for OFWs. With a balanced blend of relaxation and convenience, Mactan is an ideal choice for those seeking a beachfront paradise within reach of modern amenities.

  1. SRP Talisay, Cebu

Located in the southern part of Cebu, SRP Talisay boasts a growing business district and excellent accessibility to Cebu City, Mactan Island, and the south region of Cebu. Living here means living minutes away from all the necessities, lifestyle, and leisure activities an OFW might need. SM Seaside Cebu, IL Corso Lifemalls, and NuStar Resort and Casino have already opened their doors, with more developments set to rise in the area. Its strategic location makes it an attractive option for OFWs who value proximity to luxurious malls and urban centers while enjoying a tranquil suburban lifestyle.

  1. Toledo City, Cebu

Known for its growing electrical and mining industries, Toledo City offers a promising investment opportunity for OFWs looking to settle in a thriving community. It is also strategically positioned near significant infrastructure developments and the Balamban shipping and industrial industries.

  1. Panglao Island, Bohol

As a growing economic hub and a world-renowned tourist destination, Panglao Island in Bohol provides an enchanting setting for OFWs exploring a serene and vibrant neighborhood. Top spots on the island include Alona Beach, Panglao Beach, Hinagdanan Cave, Molave Cliff Jump, and island hopping at Balicasag Island & Virgin Island. Its stunning beaches, rich marine life, and an array of resorts and attractions make it a perfect choice for those longing to live in a tropical paradise. 

  1. Tagbilaran and Baclayon, Bohol

Tagbilaran and Baclayon offer convenience, rich culture, and a hospitable community, making them desirable neighborhoods for OFWs returning home. With their easy access to schools, hospitals, and commercial areas, you can still set your feet on modern amenities while enjoying a laid-back provincial atmosphere.

  1. Dumaguete and Bacong, Negros Oriental

Dumaguete and Bacong in Negros Oriental are renowned for their prestigious universities: Silliman University, Negros Oriental State University, and St. Paul University Dumaguete. This is an ideal locale for those OFWs planning to invest in education for their families. These areas offer a vibrant academic environment and a laid-back coastal setting perfect for young or growing families.

  1. Tanjay and Bais, Negros Oriental

Nestled amidst vast agricultural plantations and offering scenic views, Tanjay and Bais in Negros Oriental provide a tranquil and idyllic setting for OFWs who are seeking a peaceful retreat. The region's strong agricultural industry and the opportunity to embrace a close-knit community make it an appealing choice for those desiring a simpler and more relaxed lifestyle.

Finding a home is not just a search for a physical space; it is a testament to the sacrifices, hard work, and dedication of OFWs who have ventured abroad to provide for their families and secure a brighter future.
