And when it comes to food, Kapampangan cuisine is also popular and one of the favorites of Filipino taste.  Pampanga have a booming nightlife center particularly in Angeles City. Best spots and recreation are also here, like Clark Special Economic Zone which is the site of world class resorts, casinos, duty free shopping and golf course.

Pampanga has many remnants of a long and colorful history, including roofs of the Old Spanish houses and church of Bacolor, the Betis Church at Guagua and the St. Peter Shrine at Apalit, with its life-sized image of the saint. The Death March Marker at San Fernando Railroad Station commemorates the heroics of the prisoners who took part in the infamous World War II Death March. Not only that, the province also has natural spots such as Mt. Arayat National Park and the Wild Duck Sanctuary at Candaba that really attracts tourists for their fascinating beauty.

The major industries of Pampanga province are farming and fishing. The fertile plains produce diverse crops from sugarcane to rice, corn rootcrops, vegetables and fruit trees. The streams, rivers and fishponds abound with bangus, carps, shrimps, crabs and other marine products. They also make furniture, handicraft and wood carving.

You can reach Pampanga through bus for about 1½ hours from Manila.
