UP – Ayala Techno Park is the lovechild of the partnership of the University of the Philippines, the country's prestigious state university and Ayala Corporation, one of the biggest business conglomerate.. It is an economic, technology and information zone for related businesses. Located in one of the former idle property of the university, UP-Ayala Technopark is now a house to BPO companies like Convergy's, HSBC and IBM. It is also a spot for students from UP, and nearby campuses like Ateneo and Mirriam, as they unwind for coffee at Starbucks, Figaro and Coffee Bean and Tea Leaf or fill their hungry stomachs with food from KFC, Razon's, Seafood Island, Reyes Barbeque, Mr. Kebab, The Old Spaghetti House, Kanin Club, Yellow Cab, Pizza Hut, Flap Jacks, and Le Ching among others. A branch National Bookstore, Bench Fix Salon, a Mac Store, Timezone and Mini Stop, is also visible.
It is situated in Barangay UP Campus near Philcoa in Quezon City, along Commonwealth Avenue.
After going around UP, Icile and I decided to hit UP Ayala Technohub to practice more night photography. Likewise, we decided to fill our hungry stomachs with what they could offer.
