Hot Air Balloon Festival at Clark

Pampanga is north of Manila and can be reached in less than an hour via the well-paved NLEX. One of the great places of interest is Clark Air Base which hosts a theme park, family resorts, a casino, a golf course and duty-free shops.

The Hot Air Balloon Festival is a family affair giving a wonderful experience specially for the kids. Held every February of the year at Clark Air Base, Pampanga, the 4-day festival has a great following, now on its 10th year in 2006. Colorful balloons dotting the horizon at dawn.

Mt. Pinatubo

Most of the damage of the Mt. Pinatubo eruption in 1991 was dealt on the province of Pampanga. But the eruption has formed a crater lake at the mountain top - now a favorite destination for mountain climbers/hikers. Attracting a big number of foreign tourists as well, the lahar-covered trail and crater-lake landscape are just uniquely awesome natural forms.

Lakeshore Estates

A wonderful estate where families can spend the weekend, Lakeshore offers sailing, rowing and fishing on its 5-hectare man-made lake. A clubhouse by the lake is open to visitors.
