Quezon City is the former capital (1948–1976) and the most populous city in the Philippines. Located on the island of Luzon, Quezon City (popularly known to Filipinos as QC) is one of the cities and municipalities that make up Metro Manila, the National Capital Region. The city was named after Manuel L. Quezon, the former president of the Commonwealth of the Philippines who founded the city and developed it to replace Manila as the country’s capital. Quezon City is not located in and should not be confused with Quezon province, which was also named after the president.

Having been the former capital, many government offices are located in the city, including the Batasang Pambansa Complex, the seat of the House of Representatives, which is the lower chamber in the Philippine Congress. The main campuses of two noteworthy universities, the Ateneo de Manila University and the country’s National University – the University of the Philippines Diliman – are located in this city.


Quezon City is also one of the best place to live that’s why Ayala Land started to develop projects in this city. UP-Ayala Techno Hub was one of the developments of Ayala Land to cater to BPO industries and as well as a place to relax and dine. Trinoma, the well known mall in this city, was the biggest mall Ayala Land developed. Shop at the boutiques or at Landmark Department Store, enjoy the breath taking view of the city or relax at the gardens, Trinoma has it all. Other well known destinations in Quezon City are Katipunan Avenue; where Ateneo de Manila and University of the Philippines Diliman is located; Tomas Morato or Timog Avenue; where you can find bars, clubs and restaurants perfect for people of all ages. Quezon City has it all. Whether you love strolling at the park, shopping at the mall, hanging out at cafes or dining at restaurants, you could find all of these in this city.
