Clark in Angeles, Pampanga was a former U.S. Air Force Base and has long been the principal aviation center of the Philippines. Since the American troops left, the Philippine government has been working hard to convert Clark into a vibrant economic Zone. It is 70 kilometers north of Manila and an hour set of Subic. It has become popular among tourists because it’s a center for some thrilling adventure sports, including parachuting, microlight flying and off-road motorcycling.
How to Get There
Clark can be reached easily from Manila. Victory Liner buses from Manila have trips to the Dau, the nearest bus station to Clark. From the bus station, a jeepney ot tricycle can be taken in order to reach the main gate of Clark Ecozone. There are also commercial flights that land at the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport found in Clark.
