Quezon City

Quezon City

Once the capital city of the Philippines (although many would argue that it still is), Quezon City, or “QC” to locals, is the largest city in the Metro Manila area, not just in terms of land size but population as well. More than three million people call this place home and that number grows each year.

The city is named after former President Manuel L. Quezon and was officially established on October 12, 1939. Being the capital for nearly thirty years, Quezon City is home to many government offices such as the House of Representatives. The country’s top universities — the University of the Philippines Diliman and the Ateneo de Manila University — are found here too. As well as the headquarters of the big local television stations, ABS-CBN and GMA Network.

Quezon City is perhaps best known for holding “Thrilla in Manila” back in the 1960’s. The Araneta Coliseum, which was the venue of the historic fight, continues to be used as an arena for sporting events and concerts.

The city is also known for its growing food scene, with the most popular being Maginhawa along Teacher’s Village in the Diliman area.

Despite being highly urbanized, there are still places in the city where you can go outside and enjoy nature. The Quezon City Memorial Circle as well as the La Mesa Eco Park are popular among bikers. The UP Academic Oval is always full of joggers, especially during the early morning or the late evening.

If exercising isn’t your thing, Quezon City also has a pretty active nightlife. From the glitzy clubs along the Timog-Tomas Morato area to the hipster hole in the wall places of Cubao X, the city always has something for everyone.
