City water, very seldom out, but slow a lot in the morning.
Air quality is good
Quiet only moderate noise D("mb","road noise.
In town during school beginning or letting out it's very heavy. But the town is very small so it doesn't take long to get through it.
In town a lot of tricycles, no taxis, no buses except to go out of town and no jeepneys.
Plenty of local markets and older, what could have been early malls. There is one new modern mall but very small. It has a supermarket with-in the mall but not a lot of foreigner type foods. No good steak. There is a new mall being built, small though.
