2.) UP Diliman
The state university is always accessible to everyone. The university also has secluded areas where cars don’t pass through all the time.
3.) Quezon City (QC) Circle

There are also restaurants and food stalls nearby (just in case you need a boost!)
4.) BGCBonifacio Global City, Taguig and Ayala, Makati
Nothing beats the experience of inline skating on asphalt flooring– good thing some parts of BGC and Ayala, Makati have that! It’s time to explore the place without cars! gear up and wear those roller skates.
