How to get there

From the South Luzon Expressway, one has to take Sta. Rosa exit to enter the city. While lining up to pay for the toll fee, giant-sized Coca-cola bottles will greet visitors, as the bottling company is located near the toll-gate. However, it may get crowded, at times, so another option is to take Eton City exit which is near to Paseo de Santa Rosa and Nuvali.
