Welcome to Quezon City!
Quezon City is the harmony of urban and suburban lifestyle in Metro Manila. While business establishments abound in the city, it is complemented by a cozy residential feel.
Why should I work here?
Quezon City is home to many locally-owned business powerhouses and the HQs of a number of government ministries. Quezon City is also in the middle of Manila, making travelling to other cities a commute away, if a bit traffic-tedious.
Commuting to Quezon City
This is Quezon City.
It was only when President Manuel Quezon decided that a new capital of the Philippines should be instituted that Quezon City was born. It was the capital of the Philippines from 1928-1976, until President Ferdinand Marcos decreed that the capital be relocated back to Manila. Today, it remains to be a formidable city on its own, being the largest of all Metro Manila cities, with a diverse landscape of business, homes, and leisure spaces.
What to expect
Very local and homey vibe, moderate traffic but easy to get around.
Life in Quezon City comes at a relaxed pace. While traffic can be insufferable in some streets during certain times of the day, it is less of a headache than Makati, Manila, and Pasig. Commuting is not as difficult as many jeepney routes pass through major thoroughfares. You may not find much world-class cuisine and entertainment here Quezon City, but you will definitely find all things familiar and friendly in this cozy city.
What not to expect
Expat communities, international establishments, and raving high-class nightlife.
You won't find many foreign nationals in Quezon City, as most of them reside in the South of Manila cities. Much of the population in Quezon City are locals, and thus the establishments that grow here also have the local feel. Tomas Morato and Timog Avenue or Eastwood City may give you the nightlife you're looking for, but it won't be like the super-clubs of Makati or BGC.
