The University of the Philippines in Diliman was my home for a few years. It is mostly green and is a huge campus. The roads are well managed and a whole section around the campus is only for bikers and joggers. Trees. Trees. So many trees. So much open space. Transportation around the campus is by jeepneys. Those marked "Ikot"... More

I was here to carry out a research project. The moment you enter the campus, you can see and smell the green. Huge campus but there are plenty of jeepneys to bring you to every part of it, though sometimes, you have to ride a long while before the jeepney reaches it as it picks up passengers everywhere as long...

Vast campus, great for jogging or biking, nature feel...but be careful because no place on earth, even in school, is completely safe. Be vigilant. Visiting UP Diliman must be enjoyed though. (August 2012)

If you live in the Katipunan and Diliman area and want to spend a nice weekend afternoon just walking shady, cool paths under trees with a pleasant breeze to ruffle your hair, then head on over to the UP Diliman campus. The inner lanes that go around the academic oval are dedicated to pedestrian traffic and bicycles. There are paths... More

As an attraction, it's worth going around. The campus is green & walker/biker friendly. They have a special lane under a canopy of acacia trees around the academic oval for joggers. A word of caution for car owners, there have been car thefts. Be alert also going around in dark secluded places. You can also check out the art gallery,... More

I was doing a 10km run on a Sunday when I was stunned to see the sunset in UP, good thing I have my cameras with me in the car. Drop by UP to witness the great sunset in QC.

I always wanted to see a naked a man facing upward with arms outstretched, symbolizing selfless offering of oneself to his country offering. The statue was based on the second verse of Rizal's Mi Ultimo Adios; measures 3.5 meters in height, symbolizing the 350 years of Spanish rule in the Philippines. The sculpture is replete with references of selfless dedication... More

The tree lined streets of the country's premier state university are perfect for an early morning jog or a late afternoon walk most especially when classes are not in session.

This place is good for photo shoot and prenup. Most people go here to jog and exercise every morning and evening. You will appreciate most of the sceneries here. If you want a food trip, you can go to "Area 2".
