Angeles City – Entertainment Capital of the Philippines also known as “City of Angels” .
If you happen to ask a foreigner about Angeles City, typical answer will be Bars, Clubs and Girls which we are not really happy about. On the other hand, there’s an advantage on it! Bars, Clubs and Girls are one of the reason why foreign investors visit the city.
Despite the major challenges that were faced by the city, such as the removal of the U.S. Clark Air Base and the Mount Pinatubo‘s eruption in 1991, all these have been surpassed by the locals. The improvement in the economy of Angeles was said to have been triggered by the transformation of the U.S. base into Clark Freeport Zone, the place where the city’s airport, Diosdado Macapagal International Airport, is located. Angeles city is the home for the city’s emerging technology industry. Its economy is based also in tourism and gambling. Because it is one of the few cities in the Philippines with an airport, Angeles is visited by foreigners all year round.
Aside from the Bars and Clubs, there are more things to do and to look after in the city which you may not have yet explored. We have lots of historical places such as the Holy Rosary Church (Santo Rosario Church) which was built from 1877 to 1896 by the “Polo y Servicio” labor system, a kind of forced labor imposed on Filipino peasants by the Spanish colonial government. It was used as a military hospital by the U.S. Army from August 1899 to December 1900. Its backyard was the execution ground to the Spanish forces in shooting down Filipino rebels and suspects, Old Pamintuan Residence it was served as the seat of government of the First Philippine Republic under General Emilio Aguinaldo from May to July 1899 and the Central Headquarter for Major General Arthur MacArthur, Jr., the father of General Douglas MacArthur and many more.. We also have festivals that we celebrate yearly such as “Twin Festival” namely Fiestang Kuliat and Fiestang Apo which we celebrate in the month of October, we also have “Tigtigan Terakan Keng Dalan” (Street Party) also in the month of October, it is the most awaited event by the youth, we have thousands of people who attend the said event including foreigners.
