Early mornings or later afternoons to late evenings, the nearly 2 KM walk around the UP Academic Oval can be one of the least expensive yet healthiest activities offered in the metro. Sports buffs, running tyros and even just dating young couples can walk, run, huff and puff with you at different paces and every now and then, there is... More

I've always loved jogging here on weekends when I was still in college. The ambiance and atmosphere here is very carefree and people don't mind you. Moreover, it gives you a province-like feeling due to its old buildings and overhanging trees. The food here tastes great and is affordable too. No ID needed. My only concern is that the place...

This is not just a school campus for me. It is my home! be sure to take time to walk around the campus and enjoy the sights and sounds. don't forget to also try the food within the vicinity of the campus. A beautiful place and it would forever hold a special place in my heart.

To feel relaxed, we usually visit UP Diliman because aside from being alumni, we crave for the food around the campus. We never fail to eat at Mang Larry's for the isaw and other grilled items. We also eat regularly at Chocolate Kiss to fill our yearnings for their offerings. Of course, Rodic's also is a must for the "silog"... More

My favorite place and school.. my Alma Mater. If you want a peaceful Sunday where you can just chill and setup a picnic, head to UP. You can also jog here because they respect joggers and bikers by providing them exactly what they need, a priority lane for them. Try also the famous isaw of Mang Larry's and spot Zorro... More

fancy taking long walks on canopied trees, visit its curated galleries, dining at very reasonable prices, listening to live music concert halls, shopping at student prices, playing tennis or simply read in the same halls where most of the country's leaders were educated, this is where its at

School campus for scholars and inteliigent students. If you're planning to study in the Philippines, this is the best University but you need to pass a very rigid entrance exam. This is also the place where you can eat local food with the locals such as squid balls, fish balls, kwekwek, kikiam etc. You'll find them in food carts along... More

Situated on a 492 acre area in Quezon City, the University of the Philippines Diliman Campus offers an unexpected and refreshing respite from the hustle, bustle and heat of concrete jungle. The DIliman Campus is a haven for runners, bikers and people who jus want to have a whiff of fresh air in one of the remaining open spaces in... More
