I always love going to UP Diliman to relax and walk around the oval especially in the afternoon. There are lots of trees, benches where one can sit and take a break or just contemplate. What's good about this place is that the oval is closed on Sundays for joggers, bikers, and hikers. It's also pet friendly. There are budget... More

Past 5pm is good time to walk around the State University's Diliman campus. There are available walk-ways to avoid the vehicular traffic.

Nothing is spectacular about this place. I found the lawns ill-maintained and the whole place sort of scary to visit at night because nothing is well lit. Maybe the campus of the oldest Asian university, the University of Sto. Tomas, or the campus of Ateneo De Manila will be more fun to visit.

I love the University of the Phils., Diliman.... beautiful huge trees line up the main road that gives ample shade and makes a good background for pictures--- it makes exercising around the campus close to nature. It really is the place to go to if you want a quick run or jog anytime of the day. On weekends, it's a... More

it's the premier state university where future leaders are nurtured and hail from. its unique university oval road is demarcated by a special lane for runners/cyclists.

Love this campus so much, especially the oval with the trees. I came here and had a peaceful walk on a Sunday morning in January when the grass was still beautifully green. This place is great for peace seekers who want to escape the busy life in the city. There are many activities you can do here: having a picnic,... More

I love going to UP. It is a great school that produces some of the best minds in the country. The campus is pretty vast and it is like a city on its own. It has dorms, food outlets and even churches. UP is the best university in the Philippines.
