Nasugbu is a first class municipality in the province of Batangas, Philippines. According to the 2010 census, it has a population of 122,483 people. Several bus services provide transportation to and from Nasugbu. Jeepneys from Tagaytay City also enter and leave the town at a scheduled time. Within the town, tricycles are the main mode of transport. The local government is pushing for the cityhood of the town, which would pave the way to make it more industrialised and developed. During the summer season, resorts in Nasugbu are a shooting location for comedy programs of GMA-7.
Special Tourism Zone:
On August 3, 2007, by Executive Order 647, President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo declared Nasugbu, famous for its white sand beach resorts, a special tourism zone, mandating the formation of a private sector-led "Nasugbu eminent persons group" to oversee development. The Nasugbu Special Tourism Zone will cover areas included in the Nasugbu Tourism Development Plan prepared by the municipal government and validated by the Philippine Tourism Authority (PTA).
