News about Clark and Pampanga

    Philippines, Pampanga, Clark Freeport Zone is located just 70km north of Metro Manila and is conveniently accessible via the newly refurbished NLEX highway which eliminates all city-driving between the two cities. Moreover, Clark Philippines has its own major international airport DMIA Clark International Airport which links Clark to all major cities in Asia and therefore, the world.

    Clark became a Freeport Zone after the Americans returned it to the Philippines government during the Pinatubo volcano eruption. Prior to that, it was Clark Airbase, the largest US military base outside of American soil. The US Air Force left behind not only a large airport with two long runways, larger than Manila’s NAIA airport, but also the infrastructure of a world-class suburban city. Today, several wings of the Philippines Air Force take up residence in Clark, further bolstering Clark’s already good security controls, making Clark Freeport Zone the safest city not only in the Philippines but among all major cities in Asia.

    Safety and security is not the only reason tourist, retirees and investors eye Clark Philippines as a destination of choice for their respective agendas. Frequently being compared to its sibling Manila, Clark Freeport also shines in categories such as low air pollution levels, practically no traffic issues to speak of and an abundance of trees and green vegetation.

    Tourism was slow to take off in the 90s in Clark Philippines mainly because of the lack of initiative and management competence of the governing body called Clark Development Corporation or CDC. However private investments and marketing efforts of stakeholders called Clark locators have put Clark on the tourism map when fine leisure, entertainment, wine and dine establishments are added to the features and attractions of Clark Freeport. Today, although Clark is still a lazy town filled with peace and tranquility, this city near Manila has lots more to offer.
