Cebu is the second largest city and logistical hub in the Philippines with its international airport and deep-sea port. It is touted as the perfect setting for both business and leisure as numerous white sandy beaches with crystal blue waters and exotic underwater marine life are just minutes away from the business district. These facts make it an outstanding place also for Sauna World in Finland to manufacture saunas.
