- The Definitive Guide to Angeles City


Angeles City and Fields Avenue is known for the bars, go-go dancers, and night clubs.  Lets face it, the main motivation of the Angeles City/Fields Avenue bars is the bar scene.  Have a few drinks, watch the beautiful women dance, interact with them, invite one or more to sit down with you and have a drink, and possibly barfine that lady who has caught your attention.

What if you want something different to occupy your days or to take your mahal (love)?

You can’t miss Mt Arayat since it is the only moutain towering from the plains of Pampanga.  Mt. Arayat is often confused for Mt. Pinatubo.  Mt.
