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

I Love the Diliman campus so much, it holds so many wonderful memories for me.

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.

UP is a very good place to rediscover nature because it is a walking university. While the campus covers over 400 hectares, it is well-strewn with centuries-old trees that provide a lovely canopy for joggers and cyclists. It lends a romantic feel for couples or families or even just friends who enjoy a nice long walk from here to there.... More
