Angeles City in the Philippines is yet another great place for single guys to travel to around South East Asia.
Yes, this city has some of the best nightlife options around like go go bars and girlie bars, but the prices for these types of things are also some of the most affordable in all the world.
Your money will go far here.
Unlike Manila which can get very pricey — especially around Makati — Angeles is a better option for guys that want more Value.
Angeles City used to be less known to the average male tourist. Only the experienced travelers or expats used to know about this place. However, times have changed. Thanks to the Internet and message boards, this place is no secret anymore. Many single male foreigners who travel around Asia will have visited the place at least one time during their adventures.
The Pros and Cons of Angeles City
- Lots of Girls and Freelancers Around AC
- Prices are cheaper than Manila, and most other places around Asia
- Many good go go bars
- Most girls are younger, typically between 20-25
- Can still get GFE (girlfriend experience)
- Online scene is pretty good
- Can be harder to find stunners in the bars (most girls are in the 6-7 category in looks)
- The area is quite small, you are mostly in the same location.
- Not much to do during the days
- Not a great choice of hotels, and generally more expensive for the better quality ones (unlike Thailand which has many good hotels for cheap prices).
How Is Angeles City in 2019?
In my opinion it is still a great place to go. Yes there have been price inflations, but This city still has value to be found, especially if you find some girls online from the dating sites.
The girlie bars further down from Fields also offer excellent value. Just be aware that the quality of girls will not always be that great. It can be hit or miss. And generally speaking, even the quality inside the Walking Street go go bars will not be in par with the bars on Burgos St (Makati/Manila).
Its the value which still draws many of the single male visitors to this city — even in 2019.
Some guys skip Manila all-together and just head to Angeles City because of the value, and also because the of the “dedicated” P4P scene.
It should also be mentioned that Angeles City is more laid back than manila, and the whole scene is not hectic. Some guys don’t bother with Manila simply because of the prices and the horrible traffic. And Manila is also the type of place that you have to watch your back most of the time, it can be a bit dangerous in certain parts of the city at night if you are alone.
But of course Manila is a great city in and of itself, and I travel there myself. But I wanted to give you a guys a brief perspective to Angeles City and the good and bad points of the place.
