Angeles City Travel Guide, Philippines
Since time in memoriam, the city of Angeles in Pampanga is known to be the center for nightlife and entertainment in the Philippines. The place is remembered to hold the settlement of American military for World War II. In fact, it is the home for the Clark Free Port Zone (then known as the Clark Air Base).
Getting to Angeles could be done by land. Whether you come from the northern or southern part of the Philippines, it could be accessible via the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX). The said road is the link between the city of Metro Manila and other towns and cities in Bulacan and Pampanga. However, much more for that purpose, the NLEX was established to be a road to other provinces in the north.
Just recently, the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx) was also built. It starts from the Subic Bay Free Port Zone found in Zambales. It passes via Angeles City before you finally reach the province of Tarlac.
An airport is also situated at the Clark Free Port Zone. This is known as the Diosdado Macapagal International Airport which was named after the former President of the country. This makes the city accessible to a lot of tourists -foreigners and locals alike.
Just like any other areas in the Philippines, Angeles City experiences two types of seasons in a year - the dry and wet. Dry months usually start from November up to April of the following year.
