Metro Manila, travel, things to do, weather

Good news for students: the semestral break starts this week, and fine weather that is mostly sunny and cloudy will accompany it. Students on break also mean fewer passengers and commuters on the road, so traffic might be lighter. The Light Rail Transit-2 has also adjusted its operating hours, making them earlier. Meanwhile, Isetann Cinerama at Recto reopened after being shut down by the local government. In other news, customers of the Bank of the Philippine Islands (BPI) have to adjust as the bank will shut down services on October 19 for a system upgrade. For the complete details of these travel updates in Metro Manila, keep reading.

Weather: Sunny to cloudy weather

For students and tourists planning to go on trips this week, the weather will be in your favor. According to the forecast, weather conditions are expected to be sunny and cloudy. The day temperature will range from 32 to 33 °C [1]. Apply sunscreen on your face and body if you’re planning to stay under the sun for a long time. Bring an umbrella for additional protection from UV rays.

Travel Updates

Semestral break for students begins

Public school students will be having their semestral break from October 21 to 25, and classes will resume on October 28 [3]. As students would not go to school during this time, the number of commuters on the road will be reduced.

Isetann Cinerama reopens

After the Manila city government closed down Isetann Mall at Recto, the mall reopened to the public last October 11 after paying PhP2 million in taxes and securing a proper business permit from the city hall [4]. The mall was closed down by Manila mayor Isko Moreno on October 9.

BPI closed for upgrade on October 19
