Angeles City my hometown
Angeles is a small urban city situated in the Central Luzon, Philippines. This place is where my heart is, thus let me give you my top 5 recommended places to visit if you are bound to City of Angels in Pampanga, Philippines.
Angeles Heritage District
This place features Museo ning Angeles and Santo Rosario Church. Angelenos are known for being religious and God-fearing people. You will see the beautiful ‘Holy Rosary Parish’ which illustrates the exquisiteness of Filipino history in Angeles during Spanish colonial government.
At the back, it has a calm prayer room which I usually visit. This church is in front of 1920’s Museo ning Angeles which exhibits about the area’s history, including diaramas of traditional life in Pampanga. Near these two wander places, you will see Holy Angel University (my alma mater) which is one of the best universities in the Philippines and home of Center for Kapampangan Studies.
Is formerly known as Astro Park which is the home of the famous ‘Salakot Arch’. Salakot Arch is a giant native Filipino hut which was built during the time of former Pres. Ferdinand Marcus to honor the revision of the Military Bases Agreement between the Philippine and USA government in 1979.
This park offers conventional places where you can perform variety of recreational activities and sports. It is being manage by SM City Clark Mall which you can also visit few 2-3 minutes away from the park.
Walking Street (Fields Avenue).
This place was dubbed as ‘Sin City’ and was described as the ‘Entertainment Capital of Central Luzon’ because it houses large- and small-scale pub houses, bars, and night clubs.
It is an eye-opener of what a real-life underground is hence I recommend you checking out this place. You will see how material world mask happiness in the faces of the workers behind their day-to-day challenges. You will see the beauty of the ‘Red Light’ which entice people to have fun but leads to a terrifying different world. Now, if you will visit here, then visit with caution, guys!
Clark Airbase (Clark Freeport and Special Economic Zone).
Part of Clark is Angeles city; this is a former base of US Air force and now being manage by Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BDCA). This is where the famous International Hot Air Balloon Festival usually held during months of February.
It is also location of beautiful parks such as Airforce City Park, Clark Air Base Bicentennial and Recreational Park, Clark Parade Grounds and more. It is also becoming a business hub since you will find a lot of BPO companies here, and other industrial companies.
If you are into Korean cuisines and want to try Korean delicacies, loves cultural woodcarvings and rattan crafts, then this is a best place to visit.
