How to go to the Fiesta

Clark is approximately 86km north of Manila and may be reached by land or air. 2011 Clark Hot Air Balloon Fiesta will be held in the Omni Aviation Complex.

By Public Transport
Public buses are available daily. Take a Victory Liner bus bound for DAU, PAMPANGA. Alight at the terminal and walk a bit towards the highway where taxis, jeepneys, and tricycles are available – all of which can take you to Clark gate. From there, take another jeep and ask the driver to drop you off at the Balloon Fiesta at Omni Aviation. Walk to entrance gates.

Via Car
Take the North Luzon Expressway from Manila and exit at DAU, MABALACAT CITY, PAMPANGA. After your exit, a left turn towards Angeles City, and a little Angeles City/Dau traffic, will bring you to within an easy right turn of the Clark Zone itself.

The trip should take about an hour and a half from Manila without heavy traffic.

Clark may also be reached via the new Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX). From the North Luzon Expressway, continue the drive leading to the SCTEX exit.  You may use either the CLARK NORTH INTERCHANGE (Panday Pira access road near Nayong Pilipino) or CLARK SOUTH INTERCHANGE (near Yokohama and Clark Main Gate) to enter Clark.

By Air
You can hop on regular commercial flights to Clark International Airport. Carriers that land at Clark are Cebu Pacific Air, Air Asia, and Tiger Airways.

Don't miss seeing the hot air balloons!

Don't miss seeing the hot air balloons! Hot air balloons need COOL AIR and CALM WIND in order to be inflated and float. As early as 5 AM, you can watch the pilots and crew prepare and inflate the balloons. And then the balloons will lift off around 6-7 AM, with the chase crew in 4x4s following after them! The next time you can see them is around 6 PM when they fly in. And on the weekends, they will light up for the Night Glow! 

Visit https://clarkhotairballoon.blogspot.com/2017/02/21st-clark-hot-air-balloon-fiesta.html for the full schedule.

Please note that this all depends on favorable wind conditions. The schedule may change without prior notice.

Don't have your HOT AIR BALLOON RIDE tickets yet? You can still get them from the Fiesta Info Booth while supplies last! Gates and ticketing booths open by 4AM.
