Clark, Pampanga is the secondary gateway to Metro Manila and is envisioned to become Asia’s next premiere gateway. Frequent travelers often just pass by Clark to head on to their holiday destinations and overlook that Clark is a destination in itself and not just a gateway. There are so much exciting and interesting things to do in Clark and the nearby cities besides the amazing Kapampangan cuisine.
