Baguio suspends classes as tourists flock to city for long weekend

MANILA, Philippines — The influx of tourists from Metro Manila and other areas forced the city government of Baguio to suspend classes from November 14 and 15.

Baguio City Mayor Mauricio Domogan announced the suspension of classes from pre-school to high school.

The suspension of classes has been attributed to the long weekend in Metro Manila, Pampanga and Bulacan, which are affected by the activities of the ongoing 31st Association of Southeast Asian Nations Summit and Related Meetings.

Dubbed the Pine City, Baguio is a go-to place for tourists because of its chilly weather.

Malacañang suspended work and classes from November 13 to 15 in those areas in preparation for traffic routing and security arrangements for the summit.

Classes in all levels, both public and private, will remain suspended in Metro Manila on November 16 and 17 as agreed by Metro Manila city mayors.
