BAGUIO CITY — In anticipation to the events in Baguio City, Mayor Mauricio Domogan signed Administrative Order No. 136, suspending the implementation of the Baguio City number coding scheme for private vehicles only from November 17 until December 7.

Baguio City is expecting an increase in the number of local and foreign tourists for the rest of the month of November.

While the 66th Fil-Am Invitational Golf Tournament will commence on November 21 until December 7.
