Baguio will not be limiting the number of tourists who visit the city famous for its cold weather and pine trees, Mayor Benjamin Magalong said Tuesday.

Magalong emphasized this point even as he acknowledged that the ideal number of vehicles for a city of its land area is 15,000 to 17,000—a figure way below the 63,000 vehicles registered there.

Furthermore, the City of Pines welcomed another 27,000 vehicles during the Christmas season, adding to the pressing problem of congestion.
