This University for scholars is so nice with its luscious ground filled with acacia trees and century old trees.I almost missed the sunflowers in bloom every graduation. Attention by the government to rehabilitate old classrooms, restrooms and offices of the respected faculties will surely make life for these scholars better.Since the cream of the crop are enrolled here, it must...

The University of the Philippines is one of the most respected and highly regarded universities of the country, being a state university. But this campus is not just for the national scholars aka "mga iskolar ng bayan", it is also for the general public. So if you're up for some early morning or afternoon jog or some weekend soccer/football/baseball or... More

I studied here for 9.5 years, so yes, this is a biased review, or a very reliable one, depending on how you see it. This is the biggest university in Metro Manila, and most of the sculptures and paintings you'll find in the campus were created by national artists. You can just walk, or ride the Ikot and Toki jeep... More

This is a good place for outdoor activities like jogging, cycling, and having a picnic in the grass area within the academic oval. One lane in the oval is closed for motor vehicles. There is also a short mountainbike trail near the gym.

More than being my alma mater, UP is really a great place for everyone. Perfect place to walk, jog or bike around the acad oval. Awesome place for foodies whether you're into street food or sit down restos. Nice place for nature enthusiasts. Also, a venue for art aficionados.

Lots of trees for the nature lovers; and pathways to walk and jog for the health buffs. Famous landmarks like the UP Oblation, the spacecraft-like 360 degrees chapel, the huge UP main Library, the Sunken Garden, the UP "gate", etc. are just waiting as backdrops to your selfies and groupies. Cheap food choices abound, especially in nearby residential areas. If... More

Theres a place where you can go to for jogging, biking or judt walking around and see nature. Dont bring pets because they are not allowed. Church is nearby, cheap xerox copying book binding and printing are also within the area. Food carts are near too. If you are looking for a restroom- the nearest that you can go to... More

My friend and I decided to visit UP to stroll and eat isaw. It was my first time to be in a very big university so I was amazed. A lot of buildings and surrounded by big trees plus the sunken garden full of rugby players practicing. After a quick stroll, we ate near the coop then also took photos... More

This is our go to place for jogging or if we want good food but at a very affordable price. My friends and I usually go here at night to go badminton or jog. It's a nice place and there are lots of trees. You can jog without hurting your lungs too much from smoke emitted by cars. There are... More
