It is on Kawit Island, off the east coast of Cebu. It is in the middle of the South Road Properties, the city’s new business and lifestyle district.
Go said that NUSTAR is excited to meet people from all over the world. Especially the millions of people who live south of Luzon. And also, the regular tourists from Korea, China, Japan, and other places.
Go said, “We will also look for cooperation with our partner airline Cebu Pacific to help boost tourism in the province.”
He also said that the Mactan Cebu International Airport. The second biggest airport in the Philippines, has thousands of domestic and international flights every week. Including round-trip flights to and from China and Korea.
