Visitor Guide to Angeles City
Angeles City is accessible by road via North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) or via Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEx). It takes about an hour to get to Metro Manila or Subic Bay Olongapo, respectively, via these roads
You can travel within and around the city by JEEPNEY or by TRICYCLE. Jeepneys in Angeles City are color-coded and travel in fixed routes. Green jeepneys take you to the city proper or old Culiat, passing by AUF Medical Center along the way. Blue jeepneys pass by the Balibago nightlife district via MacArthur Highway, and will take you to SM City Clark mall at the end of their route. Grey jeepneys go through an alternative route to the city’s nightlife district. White jeepneys will take you to the city’s public markets, passing by the bar & grill restaurants in Hensonville along the way. And yellow jeepneys pass by the public markets and exit the city proper to San Fernando, Pampanga. Tricycles are a popular form of “private” transport in the city. In Angeles, tricycles are relatively small—sidecars are built for the average Asian height. You can ask a tricycle driver to take you to places within or outside of the city proper which are far beyond the jeepney routes. However, tricycle fares are way higher than the typical jeepney fare. Remember to always ask or “haggle” with the driver to bring his fare down before you ride.
The city also has its own airport known also as Clark International Airport. Currently, travelers from Boracay, Cebu, and Davao can fly directly into Clark, as well as travelers from Singapore, South Korea, USA (via Korea), Malaysia, Macau, Hong Kong, Bangkok (via Kota Kinabalu, Malaysia), and Cambodia.
Public Utility Buses
Public Utility Buses shuttle locals to and from Metro Manila at nearby Dau Bus Terminal. In the same terminal, you can find vans that shuttle you to Subic, Olongapo for a minimal fee. From NAIA, you can get to Angeles by way of a Pasay-Dagupan bus at Five Star or Victory Liner terminals.
You can take a taxi from NAIA airport straight to Angeles City. A taxi ride arranged by an agency at the airport departure area will cost PHP 2000-3000 for a 2-hour special trip. For your convenience, the Margarita Station also has a pickup service to and from NAIA (in Manila).
