THE ES­SEN­TIALS

Australian Geographic Outdoor - - Road Trip -

Get­ting there: Qantas flies daily to Manila

(www.qantas.com). From there it’s less than 100km to Pam­panga, but is a long drive. It took three hours on a char­ter bus to reach our ho­tel. An al­ter­na­tive is to fly into Clark In­ter­na­tional Air­port, via Hong Kong or Seoul.

Where to stay: Trav­el­ling as a guest of Ford Aus­tralia, we stayed at a new ho­tel called Mi­dori Clark Ho­tel and Casino, near the old US Air Force base at Clark. See www.mi­dori­ho­tel.com for book­ings. There are plenty of other al­ter­na­tives in and around the city of An­ge­les. Check out www.vis­itclark.com.

Tours: Sev­eral com­pa­nies op­er­ate tours to Mount Pinatubo, in­clud­ing Trekking Mt Pinatubo, which runs 4WD tours and hik­ing up to Lake Pinatubo. For more info, see www.trekking­pinatubo.com
