I went to Clark to meet a friend there. I wouldn't advise arriving into clark because of the Taxi Mafia, There is a taxi office but it's not manned, the board says 300 pesos, I negotiated with the taxi guy who came right up to me because it said 500pesos. He calls the car/van to come to me and i get in, he stands holding the van door and demands me to give him 100 pesos, i decline and start to get up to get out and he pushes me back into the van and gets angry saying What are you doing! He get's more angry when i look at his chest for his ID and says the same words again.
HE then slams the door and smiles to himself as he walks off.

I then go crazy saying i've left my luggage and the van driver stops, i get out and walk back to the terminal, I then find two posh Jeepneys fully enclosed and air conditions and i get that for 50 pesos. Don't ever go to a taxi, also a lot the hotel shuttles don't go there because the drivers are threatened with death if they do.

Hotel Restaurant had nice egg breakfast, here's me with an ice cream

Return Flight:

In Contrast the return was easier, I got into a Jeepney at the SM mall which was signed Duty Free Clark. They stop at a gate just outside the airport so you have to walk a little but it was ok.

I chose an 8pm flight so that i wasn't in the chaos of an emirates flight as the terminal is small.

The Check-in staff were friendly, I had to then go to another desk to fill in a departure card and pay the tax.

Security were friendly and i had no problems.

The gate was downstairs but i decided to take the escalator to where emirates departs from for a bit of quietness.
I found a nice little cafe with a soft sofa to sit on and had a hot chocolate.

OH boy! a transit charter aircraft just arrived with 200 people on board and so everything went incredibly noisy.

I went back downstairs and it was actually more peaceful with tiger air passengers sat waiting for the flight so i stayed down there.

I did like the small airport but it's not a reason to travel to clark for as it can be a bit dodgy with those taxis.

Flight crew were friendly.

Clouds into hong kong are always low, no wonder the aircraft coming in have a 1,700 feet height quite a distance from the airport on the STAR.

A Funny Thing happened at Immigration, Well back earlier when i was in the hotel area road, i was talking to my trike guy who i befriended for 3 days, he said he'll take me up to the sm mall for free if he gets a passenger, so we waited and talked for 15 minutes and this guy with a silver briefcase and a bauld head got in and got off at a bar, and it was only him standing right next to me in hong kong. And I was leaving way too early for the flight so it wasn't just a timing thing.
