Consider colorful Quezon City, the largest and most populated city in the country, for your next staycation. With an area of 165.3 km², you’ll definitely find a lot of things to see and do. There are a number of Quezon City hotels that you can stay at, all promising that out-of-town relaxation experience for just a fraction of the driving time.
