Situated northeast of Manila, Quezon City is the biggest city among the 16 cities and one municipality that comprise the metropolitan area. In terms of land area, Quezon City is the second biggest in the country, being next in size to Davao City and five times larger than the City of Manila itself. With hilly terrains of alternating ridges and lowlands, the city has a temperature that is generally lower than most cities.
Television networks and media giants like ABS-CBN, RPN 9, and GMA-7 have their headquarters in Quezon City. A high concentration of government offices, hospitals, and health centers can also be found in Diliman, such as the Department of Agriculture, National Power Corporation, Office of the Ombudsman, Philippine Heart Center, Lung Center of the Philippines, and Veterans Memorial Medical Center, among others.
Not only is Quezon City the most populous city in the metro but also the most in demand during holidays and celebrations. One can never go wrong going to La Loma District for the ultimate festive food, lechon. At present, 28 shopping complexes are scattered all throughout the city. It also hosts the third largest shopping center in the world in terms of leasable space—SM City North EDSA.

The Cubao area, however, is more notable as a commercial center with Araneta Coliseum as its forefront, along with Gateway Mall, Ali Mall, Cubao X, SM Cubao, and Farmers Plaza.
