I will always want to keep coming back to where I belong, and UP Diliman is one of those places. I even enjoy taking my kids there for playtime. UP Diliman is one of the best jogging places in Quezon City, where you can run around to your heart's content, especially during Sundays where they implement a no-car oval policy.... More

This university is ripe with Philippine history. But you need a well-informed guide (aka UP students/alumni) to show you around and discuss the stories behind the various sculptures inside and outside the school buildings. Also a great place for jogging/biking. Vast campus. Fresh air. Old trees everywhere to give you shade.

my favorite jogging track in the Metro! maybe I'm biased because I've spent almost 11 years here for my studies and first work. But aside from the nostalgia I get when entering the campus, I love the very picturesque and laid-back environment. best place to relax and kill time. it's home sweet home for me. :)))

SN xx-1506x hahaha! ever since i entered UP back in 200x, it can be considered as a community itself. There are residential areas, shopping areas, large grounds to do some sports, a hospital, a 2 chapels and exclusive jeepneys(ikot and toki). Now, despite the major change in the enrollment fees, it still serves its purpose-to provide the top education for... More

But UP is also the center for creativity, health - running,cycling - food, drinking, everything! They have great movie festivals, cheap food, great food, HUGE trees, cool breezes, bird watching areas, fish balls, grilled meats, wide open grassy areas. Simply hands down... More

Although located on the University Campus in effectively a huge park and is therefore very quiet, this does not make up for the disappointment. Rooms are clean, but sparse and the shower has virtually no water coming out of it. The restaurant is cheap, but no selection. No laundry service available and very limited toiletries provided

There are food stalls open on sundays so you won't have to spend a lot. I'm planning to brig my baby here every Sunday when he grows up so I... More
