Southeast Quezon City, despite being primarily residential, has much to offer for those passing by.

Understand edit

Southeast Quezon City is composed of seven barangays, which are commonly divided into three broad neighborhoods. The westernmost portion forms Camps Aguinaldo and Crame, home to the national headquarters of the Armed Forces of the Philippines (AFP) and Philippine National Police (PNP), while the easternmost portion forms Libis, a rapidly-growing former industrial area. Separating the two in the middle are Barangays Saint Ignatius, White Plains and Ugong Norte, home to gated communities that are among the most exclusive in the entire country.

Much of this area was part of neighboring Pasig until the creation of Quezon City in the 1930s. It was not seriously developed until well into the 20th century.

Map of Southeast Quezon City

Southeast Quezon City is served by several bus and jeepney lines, and Santolan–Annapolis station on MRT Line 3 serves this part of the city.

Eastwood City is the hub of most non-rail-based public transport in the area. While most services in this area head to other parts of Quezon City, Pasig or Marikina, a few services head south: the Citylink bus service operates to Ninoy Aquino International Airport via Taguig during peak hours (except Sundays), while Yellowdot Transport operates a service between Taguig and Antipolo which stops here.

Public transportation generally does not serve Barangays St. Ignatius, White Plains and Ugong Norte, or inside Eastwood City. There is an informal habal-habal (motorcycle taxi) terminal along Katipunan Avenue in White Plains, in front of a 7-Eleven, if you need public transportation to or from this area, but in general, if you're going here it's strongly recommended to get a taxi to move around, or be prepared to walk.
