Visit Pampanga: a visit to Nayong Pilipino in Clark, Pampanga


For the 2nd day of our VISIT PAMPANGA tour for April 2018, our last stop is here at the Nayong Pilipino park in Clark, Pampanga. Nayong Pilipino is a park that you can learn about the history and culture of the Philippines.

Many foreign tourist go here because you can experience the Philippines in one venue. Each coners of Nayong Pilipino features the different attractions for culture and heritage and you get to experience an all year round festival, just to give you a taste of what the Philippines can offer.


I've visited this place for the 2nd time and the 1st time was 3 years ago with son for their school field trip.

Nayong Pilipino was formerly located near the Manila Aiport, and then they moved it out city just to give a fresh look and better service for tourist and student field trips.

Nayong Pilipino is the best place to bring your foreign friends if they want to see more about the Philippines. Nayong Pilipino displays a lot of cultural and traditional homes of Filipinos from Luzon, Visayas and Mindanao and also the best part here is that the cultural show at their Nayong Pilipino theater, a show that shouldn't miss.


Entrance fee is very affordable, a hundred pesos can let you stay til the whole day here in Nayong Pilipino. You can take a rest after your tour or go back again to those attractions for your Instagram selfie.

Yes, the entire place is very Instagrammable.


Here are some of the replica homes displayed at Nayong Pilipino.
This is an Ivatan house in Batanes, and the structure is similar to what they have in Batanes. Its just a replica and this is the comfort room or rest room of the park hahah

I know its funny...but wow! they build the walls of the house using large stones.


Spotted a vinta boat replica, which orginally can be found in Sulu and Zamboanga. We have a festival of vintas claled the Regatta, which is scheduled every October in Zamboanga City.


I think this house replica is based in Tawi Tawi


In Nayong Pilipino, you can also visit the stores inside to buy locally made bamboo crafts. Some of the products are made by the aeta people who lives in the mountains of Pampanga.


We arrived at the small Igorot community here in Nayong Pilipino, they work here and they are really from Cordilleras. They did some traditional dance and also invited the tourist to dance with them and have a photo.

If you have a question to them about their culture, just ask them and they will answer it right away.


They also showcase the arts and craft of the mountain people. They are good in wood carving and also weaving

Local products area also available, just inquire at them if you are interested to take home some of their finish products.

For me case, I really want that Igorot house.


Here's one of the coolest attraction inside Nayong Pilipino. They have a small rice field inside the park and they are maintained by the local park staff who are also farmers. They told me that the entire small rice field is just a sample, but it can produce one sack of rice.


More awesome view inside Nayong Pilipino, the river and bridge you see in the photo reminds me of our Malacanang Palace.

And also they have legendary and mythical characters in statue around Nayong Pilipino. Here's a statue of Maria Makiling, the fairy goddess in Mt. Makiling who protects the mountain and animals


More building replicas from the best of the Philippines--- those heritage homes, historical house and also there's a replica of the Barosoain church of Malolos, Bulacan.


I mentioned earlier that every corner is a good photo backdrop, so here I am doing some photo shoot around Nayong Pilipino.

How I shoot? I brought my own tripod for my smartphone and I pair a remote control shutter to activate the camera to shoot.


One of the best experience here in Nayong Pilipino is the cultural dance show inside their theater. Wow! The performance of their singer and dancers are really a world class performance!! When we watch the show, it gave us tears because of the song and music strike us straight into our heart.


Each performance is a wow! it will never waste your time. The last part of the show that gather all performers is a big hit!! After watching the show, you will realize that we're glad that we are Filipino.
