Travel Destinations: Angeles City, Philippines

Angeles is a city mirroring two images; that of the beauty of nature and that of the glitter and glamor of city life. If you're bound for the Philippines, then it is one city that you should visit.


The city is located in Region III, north of Manila / NCR (National Capitol Region), Philippines. It is more or less 80 kilometers from the Capital.


From the Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA), one can take an airport taxi to nearby bus stations ( Victory Liner, Rabbit, Dagupan Bus lines most buses going up north pass by Dau the entry point to Angeles City.) The Victory Liner is the most comfortable, based on the author's experience. Only the Rabbit Bus lines however, has a station inside the city. For the other buses, a stop over is usually done at Dau which is a jeepney- ride away from Angeles. There are ordinary buses and air con buses which offer affordable prices .

Private cars could be rented and taxis from the airport could bring you directly to Angeles, but it would be more expensive than the bus fares.

If you decide to take the bus until Dau, then you could ride a jeepney from Dau to Angeles. You have to walk though, the short distance from the bus station to the jeenpney stop. If you're totally new to the city, a taxi ride from the NAIA Airport provided by legitimate and certified airport taxis should be utilized.

The Diosdado Macapagal International Airport (DMIA) is situated also inside Clark Freeport, (which was previously the US Clark Air Base.) Travelers from different entry points could now land directly at the airport. Flights from Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia , Incheon Korea, Singapore, Hongkong and Thailand are quite affordable.

For first time-travelers, it is not advisable to hail a taxi outside of the airport for these are no longer covered by airport rules and may not be guaranteed for your personal safety. Accidents can happen in any part of the world no matter what safety precautions are in place if you don't travel wisely. One could easily be lost in the crowded, metropolitan mazes.

Within Angeles city, jeepneys and tricycles are readily available.

Adding Brilliance into Your Life With Lights

I am afraid of the dark; I always sleep with the lights on. Most often, I had nightmares when I sleep in the dark. One time the light bulb exploded probably because it has been on non-stop and had over heated, so my son had to buy a durable one which could fulfill my preference for brightness. But doesn’t everybody love brightness because of the broader perspective and vision that light brings?
