Angeles City is geographically located within the province of Pampanga, Philippines and is locally classified as a first-class, highly urbanized city. Angeles City currently has a population of over 325,000.
Angeles City is served by the new Diosdado Macapagal International Airport located inside the Clark Special Economic Zone (formerly the Clark US Air Force Base, the largest military facility outside of the United States mainland), located on the northwestern side of the city. The military base was closed down following the devastating 1991 eruption of nearby Mt. Pinatubo volcano. Subsequently, the base was designated as a Special Economic Zone and fast became one of the Philippine's most dynamic international and domestic business investment opportunities.
The adjacent Balibago nightclub district has since evolved into what has been dubbed as the "Entertainment Capital of Central Luzon."
