Experience Philippine Culture at Nayong Pilipino

If you're looking for a place to get a glimpse of Philippine culture, one of the places to consider adding to your itinerary is Nayong Pilipino.


A Glimpse of Philippine Culture


This theme park provides you with a brief overview of seeing different aspects of Philippine culture and history without traveling all over the country. This more than 40 acre complex has a bit of everything from Luzon to Mindanao. For those who are short on time, this attraction is an ideal addition to your itinerary.




The park has various sections with replicas and representations of cultures all over the Philippines. There are traditional houses and structures, landmarks and a smaller version of a certain part of the country's landscapes.


Visitors can watch how locals of certain provinces make products specific to their region. You'll also see replicas of the homes of some important figures in Philippine history while you explore the theme park.


There are also shows where visitors will get to hear local contemporary and old songs, and some dances as well.



Here's a video of one of the performances held in the theme park:





Nayong Pilipino is a good educational trip for those who want to get a glimpse of the history and culture of the country.

  • P150 for adults

How to get to Nayong Pilipino

Board a bus bound for either Pangasinan or Baguio that stops at Dau, Mabalacat. Once in Mabalacat Terminal, walk to MacArthur Highway and flag a jeep going to Main Gate Terminal. Alternatively, you can board a jeep bound for Angeles and alight at 1st Street, then walk to SM Clark or the Main Gate Terminal. From either place, you can hire a taxi to take you to Nayong Pilipino for around P300 to P500. You can also board another jeep from the main gate; if you decide to take this route, get on the Route 1 jeepneys then alight at Parkson Duty Free. From Parkson, you have to walk to the theme park, which is approximately 1 km away.
