{Road Trip} Nayong Pilipino at Clark

Last February, we went to Clark.  It was an impromptu road trip to witness the last day of the 17th Philippine International Hot Air Balloon Festival.  We were lucky to be able to park near the entrance but we decided to leave due to the large crowd and dust.

So we explored Clark and in between our U-turns and dead ends, we found out that Nayong Pilipino at Clark Expo is open again to the public.  I got excited because I have never been to Nayong Pilipino Clark and Pasay.

The entrance is P50.00 for adults and P30.00 for children.  Julia, who just turned one,  got in for free!  The parking area is inside the Nayong Pilipino compound so its spacious and safe.  A map is conveniently positioned near the entrance.

Here are some photos of our experience there (Forgive me, photos I took did not do justice to the real beauty of the place.)

Picnic tables are also available all over the park (P150.00 and above).
You may bring food inside without corkage fee.

Aeta Village

Souvenir shops (I can't imagine our Ifugao brothers wearing Angry Birds headgear.) 

Don really liked the cultural presentation that day.  They showcased the native dances in the country.
They gave free tinikling lessons to everyone after their presentation.

It took us two hours to get to Nayong Pilipino.  The route we took was North Luzon Expressway (NLEX) and we exited at Dau, Mabalacat, Pampanga.  We turned left going to Angeles City and turned right at the roundabout going to Clark.  Traffic was really bad because of the Hot Air Balloon Festival.  It will normally take an hour and half only.  As an alternative, you may take the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) from Dau and exit at Clark North.

The area is clean and the staff are really nice.  If you want a cheap but educational and fun-filled activity with your family, visit Nayong Pilipino.
