I am living in Angeles City and have lived here for about 7 years.
There have been many many changes BUT... It's still the same Philippines.
Have not been down to Olongapo for about a year.
The base is still recognizable as a former U.S. Base but it has been its all commercial now.
I even have a friend of mine on the base. He is Japanese American and he runs a company making solenoids.
There is almost nothing in Olongapo proper that is fun entertainment wise.
Barrio Barretto still has many bars, restraunts and hotels.
As always quality varies.
I live in AC too Charles!!!
I remember subic bay as a very good watering-hole for very thirsty sailors.Good old San Miguel beer served by beautiful ladies (but weren't they all!)
If I remember correctly every bar had at least one or two of the ugly women, that ended up looking pretty good to some of those sailor after they had a picture of mojo and a six pack of san miguel
I did two shore tours in Subic Bay. (1982-1986 and 1990-1992) departed a few months before they closed down the bases. Sad leaving. Best liberty port in the entire Navy IMHO.
Hello, I was thinking maybe a visit back to Subic for a look around. where would you recommend staying?
