Christmas Capital of the Philippines

Brighten up your holidays this year and feast your eyes on the giant lanterns of the Philippines’ Christmas Capital – Pampanga!

Giant Lantern

The popularity of the Giant Lantern Festival paved the way for Pampanga to be dubbed as the “Christmas Capital of the Philippines.” These dazzling lanterns measure an average of 40 feet in diameter with around a thousand bulbs each, providing a sparkling display of lights, which warm the hearts of its viewers. What better way to experience this than to go with the Official Tour Provider for the festival!

On this tour, you will learn how this province’s famous lanterns or parol are made. Of course, we cannot simply let you marvel at the process, so in true Culture Shock PH fashion, you will get to try your hand at making your own parol!

Lastly, a visit to Pampanga is never complete without a sampling of its sumptuous food. Dinner consists of heirloom Kapampangan recipes especially prepared by a renowned food historian. Guaranteed homemade and with love.
