Angeles City, Today
Angeles City is gaining world fame today as the entertainment capital of the Philippines. It distinguishes itself as one of the fastest-growing cities outside of Metro Manila.
It has a most advantageous location, with the quickest access to Clark Freeport Zone and, not an hour away, Subic Freeport Zone, both special economic zones which attract major attention from some of the world’s biggest investors. The city provides an ideal environment for international entrepreneurs not only for the booming nightlife district, but also for the large, highly educated workforce that the city’s universities continue to produce.
Angeles City’s entertainment industry continues to make a huge impact on its economy. Although more and more nightlife zones are blooming all over the city, the most famous nightlife strip is Fields Avenue or The Walking Street. Now, this humble provincial town has undergone a total transformation with its growing number of bars, upscale girly clubs, discos, KTV bars, and live band clubs.
Since Clark Freeport Zone opened to the world market, numerous industrial investors have poured new life and energy into the neighboring metropolis. Now, it is also home to numerous golf courses, recreational parks, casinos, hotels, and other commercial establishments that are frequented by locals and tourists alike.
