Ilocos



I've had Ilocos in my travel bucketlist since I went to Manila and I'm so glad that I had the opportunity to come visit this year. So, let me share with you the trip I had!

We left Manila night on a Thursday night around 10pm. Travel to Ilocos would take roughly 9-11 hours long of drive. It was  a pretty long ride. Once we arrived there, we immediately started with tour. So with barely enough sleep and with no breakfast, we went already to the first itinerary of the day.

Day 1:
Sand Dunes, Marcos Mauseleum, Paoay Lake, MalacaƱang of the North, and Sinking Bell Tower
Sand surfing!
I wasn't able to get a photo of me doing one, so I'm putting up a photo from a friend instead.
A museum of the late President Marcos, a glimpse of his past
A place famous for its empanada.
Paoay Lake
MalacaƱang of the North


Sinking Bell Tower in Laoag


Day 2: Saint Augustine Church, Bojeador Lighthouse, Kapurpurawan Rock Formation, Bangui Windmill, Patapat bridge, Blue Lagoon beach

Day 3: Bantay Church Belfry Tower, Pres Elpidio Quirino Museum, Calle Crisologo

I think the trip covered pretty much most of the tourist areas in Ilocos. The only thing I hated about it was the heat. Well, first it was summer so it was definitely hot out. I sometimes hated coming out of the van or staying out far too late. But other than that, Ilocos is a beautiful region with so much to offer. The place is rich of history and there are quite a variety of food to choose from. It's definitely one of the places to visit here in the Philippines.
