Camiling is one of the municipalities found in the province of Tarlac.  It has long been a second class municipality up until its declaration to gain first class hiatus in November 20, 2001.  This was after it attained an annual income of 50 million pesos (around $1.05 million).  It covers 140.50 square kilometers which is said to comprise 4.6% of the province’s land area.


Going to Camiling is accessible via bus rides.  When you come from other provinces in Region I, you could take two bus rides before reaching the place.  From Manila, you could have one bus ride.  If you wish to travel around the area through your own vehicles, you may do so. 

While you are in the town, you could take jeepneys and tricycles to move you from one travel destination to another.  If you are with a group of people, you may always take the streets on foot.  Much of the tourists in the place may also have their own relatives who could guide them in their travel.  While you are a stranger in the area, expect Filipino hospitality to help you enjoy your entire stay.


The two Philippine seasons are experienced in the town with November to April considered as dry months.  The very wet season is usually felt during the months of July to October when heavy rainfalls strike the place.  The peak of the dry season can be seen from January to March when crops wilt because of the soil’s dryness.

Chicharon and Inuruban Festival
