Clark, a cultural city full of American lifestyle
Clark, a district in Angeles City, was an important stronghold of the U.S. military in the Pacific War. This history enriches Clark with American styles. The city is even described as "the USA in Asia". Situated only about 80 kilometers away from Manila, Clark's convenient transportation makes it a hub for international tourism and business and an ideal gateway to travel within the Philippines.
In the city center, Nayong Pilipino shows the divided history of the pre-colonial and postcolonial periods, allowing tourists to experience other cultures and history. The Aqua Planet, known as the largest water park in Southeast Asia, consists of 14 themed areas, from a parent-child paddling pool to exhilarating water slides, allowing all ages to stay refreshed in the Philippines, where the weather is summer all year round. Flying an ultralight aircraft is also a popular activity to experience Clark. You can soar in the limitless sky and overlook the city scenery. Speaking of which, The Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Fiesta in February, the longest-running aviation sports event in Asia, should definitely be on your to-do list. In addition to riding hot air balloons, there are plenty of wonderful air sports, such as skydiving, paragliding competitions, and airshows at this world-famous festival.
Clark is also abundant in natural resources. Mount Pinatubo is a local active volcano. Its crater lake has now become a holiday resort in the Philippines, which is ideal for a one-day trip to experience the magnificence of nature while strolling among spectacular mountains covered in volcanic ashes. The Hundred Islands, caused by long-term coastal erosion, consists of 124 islands and has become the most famous national park in the Philippines. Tourists can enjoy various types of activities on the islands, such as cave exploring, snorkeling, and cliff jumping.
Subic Bay Freeport Zone is also a popular tourist area with a long coastline and tropical rainforests, which was initially established as a special economic zone after the withdrawal of the U.S. military and is currently transformed into a shopping area that indulges tourists with American-styled outlets, duty-free shops, and high-end hotels. The most Instagrammable site is undoubtedly the inflatable waterpark, which provides various inflatable toys, colorful parasols, and bean bags to create eye-catching posts on social media. The Zoobic Safari is a great face-to-face experience for tourists to interact with tigers over a short distance. Uncommon animals such as binturongs, pythons, and scops owls can also be seen there.
