Philippines Hot Air Balloon Fiesta comes to Clark, Pampanga once more in 2012.

Philippines Hot Air Balloon Festival in Clark, Pampanga


One of the biggest problems plaguing this popular event in Clark Philippines is transportation to the Hot Air Balloon site in Clark. Even those who drive to Clark Pampanga have trouble finding a convenient place to park. Aggravations and frustrations with transportation problems have been the bane of previous Philippines Hot Air Balloon Fiestas in Clark Pampanga.

This year a special Hot Air Balloon bus service is available. Participants board the special bus in a designated pickup location in Manila and travel to Clark in comfort, resting up during the 90-minute journey arriving refreshed and ready to enjoy the festivities of the Hot Air Balloon Festival in Clark.

Tickets to this special Hot Air Balloon Fiesta bus service must be purchased in advance. Round-trip ticket price is php1,500 inclusive of an admission ticket to attend the Clark Hot Air Balloon Festival(no one-way ticket available). Only a small number of seats are available and once tickets are sold out, no more will be made available. Payments can be made through bank deposits or Paypal.

Ticket holders will board the bus between 5 to 5:30am in Ortigas Metro Manila, opposite the Philippines Stock Exchange Center (Tektite) where there is plenty of public parking. The Hot Air Balloon Festival shuttle will depart promptly so please arrive on time. Those who miss the departure may still board the bus for the return trip from Clark back to Manila. The bus will depart from Clark Wine Center at around 7:30pm expecting to arrive in Manila by roughly 9:30 to 10pm depending on traffic. (Any last-minute schedule adjustments will be communicated to ticket holders via email and/or phone.)

Smart tourists would probably choose to avoid the weekend and check in on Wednesday or Thursday instead. Although the programs for those two days may not sound as exciting as that on the grand finale Sunday or the penultimate Saturday lead-up, many can probably approach the balloons and the crew with less obstacles on Thursday and Friday. Rooms may still be available but many tourists and local residents travelling north from Manila are booking them fast.
