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 main campuses of two noteworthy universities we're considering, the Ateneo de Manila University and the country's National University - the University of the Philippines Diliman — are located in the city.
Ninoy Aquino International Airport
The Ninoy Aquino International Airport or NAIA, also known as Manila International Airport, is the airport serving the general area of Manila and its surrounding metropolitan area. Located along the border between Pasay and Parañaque, about seven kilometers south of Manila proper, and southwest of Makati, NAIA is the main international gateway for travelers to the Philippines and is the hub for all Philippine airlines.
NAIA is a 30-minute drive from Quezon City.
