Feb. 17, 2013 - PRLog -- Each year, thousands of Manila families travel north to Bulacan, Pampanga, Subic, Clark and Baguio during Holy Week which is one of the most important events in the year, some say, even more important than Christmas and New Year.  Tourist facilities such as hotels, resorts, restaurants, recreation and entertainment establishments, parks and tourist destinations struggle to accommodate the surge in arrivals into Pampanga's Clark Freeport  Zone, one the most popular vacation and holiday destinations north of Manila.

Several well-known leisure establishments in Clark have announced special Holy Week and Easter Holiday packages, deals and treats to welcome visitors from Manila as well as tourists arriving in the Clark International Airport - DMIA - to spend Easter Holidays in the Philippines.

For more information about packages and deals for resort and hotel accommodation, egg hunt picnics by the beautiful lake in Clark as well as a special round-trip excursion package designed to make it very convenient and stress free for Manila families to get out of town to relax and unwind in the peaceful and laidback ambience of Clark Freeport in Pampanga, log on to:


In previous years, visitors arriving in Clark for Holy Week and Easter Holidays have complained about the lack of good restaurants, pubs and family resto bars to enjoy some good food for which Pampanga is known for.  There are indeed many very nice places in Clark to wine and dine in style.  For example, there is a very nice gastro pub family resto bar called The London Pub located inside Mimosa Golf Estate which serves up some yummy English pub food.  The Classic Fish n Chips is a must for visitors in Clark but there are many more delectable items on the menu.  This is also the home to the famous Vintage Beers, a luxury beer that is triple-fermented to improve with age inside the bottle.  These special beers can cost p1000 or more for a 750ml bottle but beer lovers never miss the chance to savor a few of them while in Clark.

Travelling is expected to be a little difficult as motorists will have to put up with congestions along the way.  However the journey to Clark from Manila is a particularly friendly and comfortable one.  Once you get on the North Luzon Expressway or NLEX, there will be no more city driving and city traffic congestions because the next stop will be the Clark South Exit which takes visitors straight into the heart of Clark.

Smart tourists will want to beat the traffic and the crowd by arriving on Wednesday or even Tuesday to start the holidays ahead of the majority of holiday visitors.

Here is a hotline number to call for visitors requiring assistance with their travel plans to Clark Philippines:   0916-428-3579

Have a safe and pleasant trip to Clark!
