Lipa City is located 78kms south of Manila and is the 1st class component city in the province of Batangas.
Lipa has been acknowledged as an emerging city in the south of Luzon in 2004 and has become a favorite location for investors and immigrants for the following reasons:
#1 High Elevation
Lipa is elevated at approximately 1,025 feet above sea level which is believed to be the 3rd highest among the cities at least in Luzon.
#2 Lower Weather Temperature
The temperature in Lipa City is generally lower than the average Philippine temperature by approximately 3-5 degrees Celsius. Weather in Lipa is best to enjoy from November until February and sometimes extends to March to as low as 14 degrees Celsius. You will find here a lot of farms for breeding and poultry.
#3 Protected By Mountains
Lipa is nestled between Mount Malarayat and Mount Maculot which makes it a low-risk area for natural disasters. These two mountains serve as a windbreak during typhoons. Mount Makulot, in the west, also served as a shield during eruptions of the Taal Volcano.
#4 Strategic Location
Lipa is in the heart of the CALABARZON region and is only approximately 45 minutes drive from Makati via STAR Tollway without traffic.
#5 Less Risk to Flood
With its high elevation, Lipa remains a flood-free area in general, but with climate change and torrential rains, there’s no more location anywhere that can be considered 100% flood-free. As for Lipa’s case, there are always catchment areas all over the city but once the rains stopped the flood will subside almost immediately.
#6 Low Susceptibility to Landslide
At least approximately 90% of Lipa’s land area has low susceptibility to landslide except for mountainous and near Taal lake areas.
#7 Religious and Family-Centered People
Lipeños are generally faithful to their religion and have solid family relationships, making them worry-free neighbors.

#11 Thriving Businesses
