I was born and raised here in Lipa at the heart of Batangas. It’s strategically placed at the center of the province so if you’ll be coming from different parts of the province and you’ll go to Manila, you’ll surely pass by this place. Aside from the cool climate, Lipa is a balanced city complete with industrialized establishments, nightlife, leisure, competitive educational institutions, and hospitals. The art and culture scene is alive here. Locals are hospitable and we brew the best coffee.

My city is known for its delicious delicacies and hospitable people. We have also farmers that grow organic vegetables which are sold in the market for a reasonable price considering the benefits it can give to your body eating vegetables without sprayed chemicals on it. Many of us believe that we have restored the old tradition.

Our city has the third highest altitude in the Luzon area of the country. With that, one may be able to enjoy cool breeze and low temperature during the rainy seasons of the year even though we are in a tropical country.

Lipa City was once quite rural, but it is slowly becoming urbanized. Besides preparing for a simpler life, someone moving here should also learn some of the dialectal variations we have. When speaking, most people in my city talk with a tone that may seem angry, but, in fact, they aren’t. The most important thing, though, is that he/she must be someone who can socialize with the community here.

When moving here, you should consider that it is where people are always outside and some are walking on the streets. People here are kind and generous. Even though the people here are kind, the temperature is so hot. Maybe because there are many buildings instead of trees.

But what one would love most about this city is the people. They are friendly and helpful. One would not feel alone.

As a Batanguena living in Batangas, people are very hospitable, reliable and kindhearted. When you visit here, first thing you should try is the kapeng barako which was offered every morning by the adults to anyone new in the province. Never be afraid of approaching people here because we are willing to help help people anytime.

As I have heard recently, my city is considered the busiest and brightest in the entire province. It has the most number of business establishments, majority of which are still alive at night. There are two huge malls, a dozen factories and many huge hospitals – ones that also cater their services to people from neighboring cities and municipalities. It is also one of the places in the Philippines known for its high altitude, making it a degree or so colder than almost every place in the country. It has the best vibe for the cold season, especially when spent with a nice cup of coffee. It is the best place for an urban vacation.

The city, in the province of Batangas, has good weather as it has been dubbed as the third coldest city in the Philippines. Although Lipa City is in the province, significant changes have urbanized the area with various establishments such as malls and town centers modeled after famous town centers.

Lipa is the 3rd in the country with the highest altitude. That goes to say that on the cold season, our blankets are a little thicker and our mornings are breezier than most places in the Philippines. We also are very proud of a dish – Lomi – a noodle-based food that has a recipe no other cook in other cities can possible replicate.
