Traveling North of the Philippines means that you get to pass by Clark and Bataan, but they’re mostly treated as stopovers rather than destinations. Clark is known for being the old US base, while Bataan marks a tragic part of our history with the Death March.
But there really is so much more to this region than just its colonial past. We took a trip to find out what else you could do at Clark and Bataan.
After our first successful Ultimate Kapampangan Tour, we decided to create another Pampanga Tour experience on Feb 10, 2008, Sunday. This is the day tour package and we are finalizing an extended package for people who wants to stay overnight in Angeles on February 9. Let us know if you want to stay overnight instead of leaving as early as 3am in Manila. We are only targeting to get a maximum of 15 participants which is about the right size for a coaster including the four of us.
