Philippines – Angeles City, Philippines – (Adult Content) A City Built On American Serviceman Sex!…

This is certainly not really a city and I am not really sure what it is, but it is a very surreal experience so maybe I’ll stick to the word “experience”!

Having said that, an experience usually has a positive overtone but in the case of Angeles City there is precious little good to be said about it so maybe I’ll settle for ‘The Angeles Nightmare’!

Anyway, you can either arrive by taking a perilous car journey up from Manila of around two hours or fly direct to Clark Field, an ex-US Airbase.

If you fly to Manila and take the taxi ride up, be sure to buckle up well and pray hard as the Filipino driving style is a unique one… Lots of horn, lots of flashing lights and very little use of mirrors and respect for other road users.  You have been warned!  You also have to deal with Manila Airport which is amongst the worst I have seen…

Alternatively you can fly direct to Clark Field from several other Asian destinations such as Hong Kong and Bangkok.  This is a surreal experience in itself as the cabin crew of Cebu Pacific Airline entertain you to party games on board…  On my flight you could win a small packet of Post-It notes if you had a cigarette or iPhone handy.  It might have escaped the cabin crews attention that they had just told us all a little earlier that these were not allowed on the flight!

Anyway, you land on one of the longest runways you will have seen (it used to be used by B52s to bomb Vietnam) and bump your way to the terminal which is small but big enough.  A short taxi ride out to the Angeles proper some 3 kms away will take you around the Perimeter Road and then you are on your own in the wilds, and I mean the wilds!  The concrete road gives way to dirt tracks, the semi-solid construction becomes tin shacks and the whole experience becomes very surreal.

There are local girls of all ages, shapes and sizes, most with little on and some clutching babies; there are local men selling sunglasses, Viagra and peanuts; there are European and US older men swilling beer and looking sad but there is precious little else.  There is nothing normal here that I could find!

In case you haven’t heard of Angeles City before or you haven’t grasped it yet from my article, this is just a big primitive sweetshop for older men but it doesn’t even have any nice goods on the shelves.  Unlike Pattaya, which everyone knows is notorious for ‘sex for sale’ but also has sea, some nice hotels, normal businesses, great food and a good and varied nightlife, Angeles has none of these sweeteners – it just has a street called Fields Avenue lined with dirty shacks full of sad women and even sadder men trying to fend them off and then the aforementioned Perimeter Road with the same sad women and even sadder men trying to fend them off…

I am not against fun and I am by no means a prude but guys, this is a disgusting excuse for a place, however you look at it.  In the 48 hours I was stuck there, I was ill twice from bad food, I couldn’t take a shower because the water was cold, the room in my ‘up-market’ hotel was dirty, I was bored rigid looking at the same dreary setting and could not even say that I saw a pretty girl.  Sure, there are lots of girls and there are also some dangerously young looking ones as well as the old hags, but they are just so plain and desperate.

I am not about to go into the detail of the sex trade there but suffice to say that the girls have little choice who they go with unlike Thailand’s equivalents as the way the payments are structured are far more upfront for the bar so the obligation is heavy on the girls to please their purchaser.  For this reason most of the sad visitors I saw would have struggled to pull even in Pattaya, such was their lack of appeal to the opposite sex.  This is sex tourism at its extreme worst!

I have since read some horrible stories on the internet about crimes and perversions in Angeles and whilst I saw no evidence of this, I can readily believe that anything goes there in this tasteless and surreal place.  The conversation I overheard amongst the clientele is always the same.  There is never a story about a ‘nice experience with a lovely girl’, it is always along the lines of ‘how many girls I have had in 10 days…’ and the numbers are fairly shocking!

This compares to Pattaya where the whole environment is more diverse and so many guys there fall in love and marry the girls.  Now I am not recommending doing that by any means, but at least it shows that the charm is there and there is some attempt to make relationships and of course once you meet a girl you can go to the beach or shopping.  There is no chance of that in Angeles believe me…

This is all the more sad because the Filipina girls are so much more engaging in general than their Thai counterparts.  They speak better English and they are more charming (if a little chubbier).  They also have a lovely gentle manner.  However, Angeles is the last place you will see any evidence of this – it is just a flesh market of the worst sort.

There has recently been some attempt to add a more upmarket dimension to Angeles in the form of venues like Atlantis that do evening shows and have a more luxurious feel but they are in the minority and are frowned upon by the die hard ‘mongerers’ (their own word for a sex tourist) as they raise the prices for the girls and so the dirty shacks prevail as the visitors like it cheap and dirty!

There really is nothing else to say about Angeles.  It makes me angry to see such blatant tasteless exploitation but worse it makes me sad to see the way the whole place operates.  All I can say is that I can understand you wanting to take a peek as I did but a return journey is just not worth it!

The Clark Air Base was closed in June 1991 as a result of the locals kicking the forces out and then the nearby Mt. Pinatubo clinched the deal.  Maybe the best we can hope for is another eruption!

The last joke is on the locals though.  The taxi driver who rescued me told me that the locals laugh about how they send all the worst girls in their country to Angeles such is the contempt they have for the tourists there!  Fair enough,  I say…

There are some that disagree with me and think Angeles City is a great place.  Are YOU one of them?  Let me know…

    Angeles City is for the guy with no game left. Am man that is not fully developed psychologically. Someone who cannot hold an adult conversation. The world is full of these types of guys….thus Fields Ave will continue…

      I think you can see I could not agree with you more! Angeles City is so desperate it is quite surreal. I only went once but never again. It makes Pattaya look like a high class city by comparison…
