For the week’s weather forecast, the city will experience a minimum temperature of 11°C (at night) and a maximum of 23°C (day time). It will be partly sunny on Monday while some showers are to be expected for most of the week until the weekend.


Since it is summer time, expect visitors to flock to this mountain city. It would be best to just commute as parking space is a typical problem. Visitors would also do the locals and the whole city a service if they just leave their cars behind to lessen carbon footprint and traffic woes.

If visitors still wish to bring their rides along, it would be best to leave their cars at their accommodation and just commute to the central business district. Anyway, the city center is just one jeepney or taxi ride away. Taxi drivers are also courteous and give change up to the last peso. Visitors can also discover the city more by walking.
