Angeles

The city of Angeles miraculously escaped destruction after the most violent eruption ever of nearby Mount Pinatuboan in 1991. The volcano sent steam and ejecta 40 km (25 miles) into the stratosphere. The sky was dark for weeks and the ground was transformed into an eerie lunar surface. Before the eruption, most of Angeles' economy was fed by U.S. Air Force personnel from the nearby Clark Air Base. The base was closed, as the Americans feared total destruction by the volcano. As a result most hotels in Angeles were left without clientele, but nowadays they're filling up again, with tourists who want to visit the surrounds of Pinatubo. There are streams of rock, formed by coagulated material from the eruption, some of which rise up to 20 m (65 feet) high. Angeles has good bus connections with Manila.

There are numerous hotels and restaurants in Angeles. The city is 75 km northwest of Manila.
