This place is crawling with beggars and scammers The locals will often charge foreigners and always try to sell you stuff you don't need Everyone here can be bribed and publicize places are dirty Not much sight seeing here and traveling at night is dangerous in non tourist places
due to the flooding of tourist by plane especially from korea, japan, australia, US and SEA countries, clark is seen as a town for fast money by many struggling young girls and single mothers who come from neighbouring islands to support their family back home.
most of them offer companionship to single men with hope of a better future for themself. its a place some find love and purely pleasure for others. it is much safer here compared to other parts of philiphines. the town is developing as the tourism industry is growing fast.
Check the vicinity when choosing your hotel. Check the star rating. Be mindful of the fact that Clark was the site occupied by foreign military personnel and there are still remnants of the night life or entertainment that catered to or pervaded the area.
This place is not suitable for young children.
2-3 night stay maximum... Grand Central Hotel and Kokomos are 2 of the best hotels for location & convenience with their dining area views of the walking street and attractions.
Angeles caters to the Vegas/Reno style night life of bars and casinos. There are numerous outdoor attractions for hiking, climbing, motorcycling, hot air ballooning, etc.
The girlie bar capital of the Philippines, cheaper and friendlier than Manila but still have to be careful of being ripped off, keep a close eye on your drink receipts.
The other thing to be very careful of is under age girls on the street, tell you they are 18 or over, but take them back to your hotel room and you can expect a knock on the door from corrupt police who come in and get you for being with a underage girl and you are given a choice, get taken away and charged and try and fight it in court that you were tricked (not much chance of getting off) or pay a get out of jail fine in cash to the police of around 150,000 peso. The young girl is in on the scam. Just be careful
There is a large variety of activities within an hour of Angeles/Clark. Most can be planned online but, there are several travel agencies within walking distance.
Clark Int. airport provides flights to various other islands in the Philippines as well as to Singapore, Thailand and others. Scuba is available at nearby Subic for a nominal cost for the "Introductory" scuba experience.
not much to do.. small museum.. mt pinatubo tour via offroad vehicles or by light plane. lots of different kinds of cultural dishes from different countries.
go karts in clark speedway. pretty much thats all.
Angeles is another place to find clubs and discos. Not recommended for those who wants adventure. But if you want to try the locals this is the place to go.
Although most of the bars and restaurant are design for Koreans so expect everything from Dishes to writing that it is in Korean inspired
The people are nice except for the transportation. It's difficult to get a taxi or jeepney when you get out from the airport and the fare is too expensive.
Hope it will improve on our next visit.
Its an alternative to manila. Travel From Clarke airport is smooth & easy. international & domestic connection is also ample for the size of Clarke.
Best place to be with friends, have lots of fun activities. have everything you want. Good hotels,most of the restaurant have Indian cuisine.
Taste also good. Kokomo's one of the best.
Basically this is a hangout for older men looking for company. Very few younger travellers. Bars, bars and more bars is the order of the day.
Everybody spoke English, lots of night life. Fairly safe. Trike rate is very expensive for comparing to other places in the Philippines.
Angeles / Clark City os a friendly city, people are friendly and you can easily go around the city without the fear for the locals.
Its a clean city with a lot of activities to do, relaxation is great also & there's a lot of sports activity to do.
Party Party drink one beer then go to the next bar until u cant walk then go back to ur room and have a nice time and sleep it off.
get ready for the next night..lol
Its a former US military town has American and Australian food. The nightlife is great a lot of bars to party in and street food.
at least an hour drive to manila (capital of the Philippines), near clark international airport... nightlife is very much active.
Angeles/Clark is a good place but the transportation is needed to be giving more access to people who are visiting this place.
if you want to taste yummy sisig and halo halo and cornick's , go to angeles pampanga Pampangenos are really great cooks !
Angeles City is a great place, I travel there frequently, Clark is a distant commute to the City and somewhat boring.
Clark has been redeveloped to a satisfactory standard, shops, restaurants etc. Great nightlife and some sightseeing.
Angeles looks run down, dearth of good restaurants and high pollution.
Just go, You have never seen a place like it. OMG its great for the single guys or just ones looking for eye candy
There is no activities to be done here except the proximity of the Airport and a variety of Duty Free stores
The old Clark Airforce Base, is now an international airport, resorts, casinos, and a large night life.
You have Golf and other sporting events held here yearly. You are also a short drive to the mountains and local farm lands which give the area a beautiful background. For all the individuals that love a night out of drinking and eating, there is a bar or restaurants for all taste. It is a great place to relax or to have a wild time. Especially Fields Avenue. For the beach, you will need to hire a car and take a 45 - 60 minute ride. Clark is a great place to visit.
Business or night life nothing else to do in the area. If you are looking for fun, it's a right place.
I can recommend as a one or 2 night stop on the way to Subic ;-) (similar night life just better prices and as a bonus a sea coast area).
nice to stay in Fontana while in clark. with its complete facilities is good for family bonding too..
very nice environment..
Try few different restaurants found one almost empty got my food in record time and beer was cheaper.
IF YOU TRAVEL HERE PLEASE STAY IN CITY CENTRE. BECAUSE THE TAXI FARE HERE IS MUCH HIGHER THAN MANILA.
