A new overseas leisure destination has opened for Shanghai residents.

On Dec. 11, Shanghai Foreign Airlines together with the Philippines Tourism Bureau and Cebu Pacific Airlines launched non-stop charter flights from Shanghai to the Clark Resort in the Philippines.

The flight is scheduled on every Monday and Friday, and the whole journey takes three hours.

The Clark Resort, located 80 kilometers away from the Philippine capital Manila, was once the largest U.S. Air Force base in Asia.

It has well-known international brand hotels, golf courses and a 200-square-meter Fontana resort town. In addition to checking out the Fontana resort town, tourists can also visit Subic Bay and the Piya Na Volcanic Hot Springs.
