Go to Popos heights in Mist Continent. It's accessible through Gizamaluke's Grotto, from where the Moogle couple are, climb up the vines and you'll find yourself at a high plains. Walk around the plains, not the forest area to fight Grand Dragons.
After you're at least lvl 50, using your Gold Chocobo fly to Vile Island, which is a pretty big island with a mountain, Southwest of the Outer Continent. Fight the Yans here, which are small creatures and have a striking resemblance to a ram. Note that Yans are really strong and could counter your party with Snort, which removes a party member from a fight. chaosr1d3r (Expert) - 10 years ago

Fight in Popos Heights (plains area, exit Gizamaluke's Grotto from the Moogles' room) ***ONLY IF*** you have Quina's "Level 5 Death" Blue Magic. Grand Dragons are Level 60 and have many ways of making sure you die quickly, if not immediately (Thundaga, Venom, old-fashioned brute strength).
These tough bastards are also used to power Freya's "Dragon's Crest" Dragon Skill, so that can help kill them faster, too (fight Ironites on the beach near Chocobo's Forest for 40~50 battles to get it to a decent power for use on Grand Dragons).
Tip from from Sypher_Kyaeon mentioned in Shotgunnova's FAQ:
"Just thought I'd mention a great place to AP-farm on Disc 3 (at the earliest) that seems like it would be overlooked by most. You know the Qu's Marsh on the island to the west of the Forgotten Continent? Well, the island may have Grand Dragons on it, but it's the Adamantoises (EXP:1274 when divvied up between all four party members/AP: 3/Gil:4433). The only things to watch for are, of course, the island's other monsters, Gimme Cats & Grand Dragons on the plains and Whale Zombies on the beach." Kraleck (Expert) - 10 years ago
