Here is an update on Clark / Dau / Angeles. hope this will be useful for tourists to Clark and those proceeding onwards.
How to reach Dau / Clark airport from Manila?
A question people often ask is "How do we reach Clark airport (DMIA, airline code CRK)"?
Here is the answer - plus a few photos of Clark, Dau Mabalacat bus terminus, and a list of other places you can reach from Dau.
Step 1 ........Take an aircon bus to Dau (from Cubao, or Pasay).
Bus companies - Victory liner, Genesis, Five star, Philippine Rabbit
(Note : Usually the first bus is at 4 am, last bus at 9 pm)
All buses going from Manila to Baguio, Tarlac, Alaminos, Bolinao go through Dau (also known as Mabalacat). Buses going to Vigan DO NOT pass via Dau.
Step 2 ..... Walk out of Dau terminus. Next to Jollybee / Mister Donut, there are minibuses going to Clark airport ( a man holding the "Clark" board keeps walking around. You cannot miss him!)

If you wish to go to Field's avenue, SM Clark or Angeles City (pronounced aan-ghay-less), SM Clark, it is best to take a trike from here - costs 70 to 100 pesos (they usually ask for 150 pesos - do pay it if you feel generous - it is our prerogative as a foreigner tourist!)

A note on Dau Bus terminus
Note : Dau Mabalacat is a large bus stand, with space to sit, at least 20 sari sari stores with everything from pepsi to lays to burgers to load for your mobile phone. There is a 24 hour Jollibee just outside on the right and a 24 hour Chowking on the left. It is a very safe place to wait at any time - day or night.
