CLARK & ANGELES: The Philippines’ NEW Economic Center
Angeles City and the Clark Freeport Zone are fast becoming the Philippines’ new economic center. From being at the heart of a booming economy to providing the same luxuries and amenities you will find in Metro Manila, to providing easy access to different areas of Luzon, Angeles is making a name for itself as the new Makati.
Stay connected to different parts of Luzon and quickly travel to different places around the Philippines’ largest island by staying at Angeles. The city is strategically located at the center of Luzon’s main land travel routes, giving travelers, business owners and residents easy access to your destination of choice.
Quick access to NLEX
Angeles is one of the exits one of Luzon’s main expressways, the North Luzon Expressway (NLEX). The city’s central location and strategic placement along the expressway makes different areas of Luzon easily accessible to Angelels residents by land – you can go as far as Metro Manila southbound, and as far north as Ilocos region, Cagayan Valley and the Cordilleras, including Baguio.
Quick tunnel access to Subic Bay
The Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX) was built in 2008 as a way to easily connect three of Central Luzon’s economic centers: Clark Freeport Zone in Angeles, Subic Bay Freeport in Zambales, and the Central Techno Park in Tarlac. Subic Bay is easily accessible from Clark via the southern end of SCTEX, the Subic-Tipo Expressway (STipEx).
Bullet train to Manila underway
Clark will be easily accessible to Manila soon via the bullet train expected to be up and running by 2022. The train is expected to be 107 kilometers long, with 17 stations from Tutuban in Manila to the Clark Freeport Zone in Angeles. Once the train is completed, travel time from Manila to Clark will be cut from 2 hours to just 55 minutes.
