I will be visa running to the Philipines in Mar. for 5 days and have no idea what to do when I arrive.
Do any of you denizens recommend any places located within about a 150 km radius of Clark International Airport?
My budget is extremely modest, so locations with budget accommodation is preferable; places without hordes of backpackers would also be a bonus.

I really would be grateful for any pertinent information. I've googled extensively and most of the results pertain to Manilla which, although I'm sure is very interesting, is not what I'm looking for.
I want to utilise my 5 days to their maximum potential -- please help me out.

Thanks for the reply.
I am open to pretty much any suggestions to be honest.
At the moment I'm toying with the idea of renting a bicycle in Clark and visiting a few nearby destinations; however, I really don't know which places are worth visiting -- or if there is anywhere decent where I can camp.
I'd be very pleased to hear about any positive experiences people have had in this particular area of the archipelago.

A Pinatubo trek is an option.
One possible option is Bolinao, Pangasinan. I haven't been there yet.
But I've also been hearing things about Nagsasa cove, Zambales. The not as well-known sister of Anawangin cove.
Thanks again to the one poster who bothered to reply.
But I have to say, the dearth of advice I've received is truly puzzling.
This site really does suck whale phallus compared to other options.
In future I know not to bother seeking information here!

If you are really up to a long trip back and forth, Ilocos Norte is beautiful. I love that stretch of the highway that hugs the Ilocos coastline. You might make your way to Pagudpud. I am not sure if there are flights between Clark and Laoag.
You could also go to Subic, it is located 1 hour by bus (source: http://jeepneyguide.com) from Clark and has plenty of (budget) hotels, restaurants and is a good place for diving.
