Nayong Filipino at Clark Field, Pampanga


What should have been a boring visit to Clark Field Pampanga, turned into an educational tour of the Nayong Filipino in Clark.

It was an accidental trip to the Nayong Filipino at Clark Expo Center in Pampanga. My family and I were planning to visit a new ranch/farm called Paradise Farm but we couldn’t find it, until we saw a sign pointing to the direction of Nayong Filipino. At first we thought it was already a bygone place. No cars parked outside, no festivities whatsoever. But still we went inside the Nayong Filipino compound and was greeted by a nice looking place with lots of native Filipino houses and a grand old house that reminds us of the Spanish houses owned by famous Filipinos in Cavite, Ilocos and other historic places in the Philippines.

The Nayong Filipino in Clark is a cluster of replicas of houses, churches, Spanish type “plaza” with a grand old church at the center. As the place is not yet fully finished, a few more accessories and other historic artifacts would make it look more authentic and intesting sight to visit.

But on the adjacent area lies the good part about Nayong Filipino in Clark. Its a small community of Ifugao huts which are authentically constructed complete with traditional Ifugao furnishings. The place is surrounded by luscious greeneries that emits a cool and soothing environment. There was even a tree house where you can rest for awhile. While roaming around, we saw some groups having their packed lunch, it was your traditional picnic scene right in the heart of Nayong Filipino in Clark.

Googling for Nayong Filipino, I found a write up about it at the WowPinoy.net site. So, Nayong Filipino in Clark is set to open in November this year. Gives them more time to improve on the place.

Nayong Filipino in Clark is a potential crowd drawer as soon as it fully opens. One of the receptionists told me that they would soon host conventions, and other events as soon as they are formally open.

    “my company outing was held in Clark, in this beautiful please called Clearwater. It is incredible, like a place you would find in the US or Europe. It’s got a lake, plenty of trees and open grassland, even a small man-made beach. It feels so relaxing, like you are in a movie. I wrote down their web site so you can check it out too. It is http://www.YatsLeisure.com.”

    “I spent a night at Clearwater country Club in Clark. They have these nice hotel rooms that look like a real Indian tent on the outside. Inside it is a real hotel room with air con and shower, spacious too. My kids loved it.”

    “Have you spent a night at Clearwater in Clark Pampanga? I did recently, in one of their log cabin rooms by the lake. When I checked in, I went around the resort, hit the beach, took a kayak out to the lake. That was nice. I enjoyed it. But it wasn’t until I woke up early in the morning, got out of the room and sat on the porch above the lake that I really got my money’s worth. The serenity was surreal. It was like a page out of a story book. You’ve got to experience it. It is not fancy. Actually it is very simple. It is just, well, nice.”

    Nakapunta rin kami diyan nung Good Friday mga 2 weeks ago. Kaya lang nung nagkukuha kami pictures nung kasama ko nung Barosoain Church replica nila me lumapit na security nila. Maayos naman siyang nagsabi samin na kapag ang camera raw na ginagamit are SLR’s dapat manghingi ng permit or paalam lang raw sa management nila sa office. Di naman ako nagalit sa security personnel nila kasi sumusunod lang siya sa utos sa kanya. Ang hindi ko lang maintindihan bat replica na lang nga ng mga scenes sa Philippines like the Barosoain Church ang kinukunan parang pinagdadamot pa nila. Eh nung nagpunta nga kami sa tutoong Barosoain Church di naman kami kailangan manghingi ng permission sa Church Management original pa yun na site sila gaya lang. I know this is similar experience of most photo enthusiasts dito sa Pilipinas. Ano ba ang diperensya ng gumamit ng SLR sa P&S and cell phone cameras eh pareho lang namang pangkuha ng litrato ang mga ito? Kaya alam nyo ang tourism industry natin nagsusuffer kasi di masyado promoted ang mga tourist destination natin because pinipigilan nila kumuha ng images ang mga tao.
