Clark International Airport, formerly called Diosdado Macapagal International Airport, is the alternate international air passenger gateway to the Philippines. The airport is located in the Clark Freeport Zone in Angeles City, Philippines, 80 kilometres northwest of Manila. It serves the general vicinity of Greater Manila Area, and is used by mostly low-cost carriers. Clark International Airport is owned by Bases Conversion and Development Authority and operated by Clark International Airport Corporation, although there is a part of the facility used by the Philippine Air Force as Clark Air Base. The airport serves as a hub for Cebu Pacific and Tigerair Philippines.
What to see & do
Fontana Leisure Parks & Casino - Fontana is perhaps the Philippines' largest and most advanced integrated leisure park. Guests can rent villas and make use of the many facilities within its 300-hectare property, including a theme water park, a golf course, a sports centre, and a casino. Activities available at the sports centre are basketball, badminton, tennis, volleyball, billiards, table tennis, darts, and riding a horse-drawn carriage. Of course, there are also multi-function halls available for banquets, meetings, and other events.
New Well-Being Spa - The New Well-Being Spa offers Korean-style sauna and various types of massages. They also offer non-evasive facial treatment services. There is a cafe filled with manhwas (Korean comics) that guests can read while waiting, and a swimming pool.
Playing Golf in Clark - Many of the travellers who visit Clark come for the golf courses. There are several country clubs to choose from aside from the one in Fontana, including the nearby Mimosa Golf & Country Club, FA Korea CC, and Clark SunValley Country Club. Some of these golf courses are overrun by Koreans.
Shopping - Clark is also full of duty-free stores. While people looking for fashionable clothes won't find much here, Clark is a cheap place to pick up home essentials, kitchen wares, bath amenities, furniture, lighting fixtures, decor, glassware, and imported chocolates.
How to get around within Clark
No visit to the Philippines is complete without experiencing getting to ride on the colourful jeepneys. Jeepneys are very common, frequent, and absolutely cheap. The only downside is that the jeepneys are more often than not overcrowded. Also, please be very mindful of your belongings when on the jeep. You can hail a jeep off the road and pay the driver or conductor once inside. Ask him to drop you off at your destination. Tricycles, or trikes, are motorcycles with an attached passenger cabins. They cannot be used for entering or leaving the airport, but are great for when you're not exactly sure where the place you're going is (but you know is within the vicinity). Taxis are more convenient, especially for tourists, and are quite affordable. However, they usually cannot be used to leave Angeles City. Should you need to go to Manila, take a bus at the Clark Bus Terminal beside Jollibee.
