2. CHOICE 1 ILOCOS-LAOAG-PAGUDPOD CHOICE 2 BANAWE-SAGADA-BAGUIO 3. CHOICE 1 (ILOCOS) PLACES TO VISIT: Vigan DELICACIES: Baluarte Ant Caviar (recommended for john) Fort Ilocandia Bagnet Sand Dunes of Suba Empanada Paoay Church Bukayo Malacanang of the North Patupat-Iloko Blue Lagoon/Maira-ira Tinubong Saud Beach(Pagudpod Beach) Bangui Windmills Kabigan Falls Cape Bojeador Lighthouse 4. VIGANVigan is the capital city of Ilocos Sur and well knownfor the precious remnants of old Spanish architectthroughout the center of the city. This is whereancestral houses are still found which are made ofthick brick wall and plastered with red clay. I wonderhow the citys heritage survived World War 2 and theonslaught of natural calamities. In spite of thepresence of jeepneys and tricycles as the modetransportation here, caritelas and kalesas are stillfound and used here. The town has also beenregistered with the UNESCO as a World Heritage Site.Sikat din daw longganisa dito, gusto niyo pa baitry? 5. BALUARTE http://chavitsingson.net/baluarte/Visitors can start with visitingthe rows of cages where theycan see lions, Bengal tigers,peacocks, civet cats,iguanas, pythons and otherreptiles and birds. In this partof the Baluarte, people willalso be able to see thePhilippine cloud rat, anocturnal animal endemic tothe Philippine Cordilleraregion. This very large rodentis an herbivore and huntedby large birds and localpeople.From the cagedanimals, visitors can move onto the fenced areas wherethey can visit and feed themonkeys, swans, flamingos,ostriches, albino and spotteddeer and the one-humpcamel. Children are allowedto sit on top of the biggeranimals, but if they reallywant to ride, they can go tothe tracks where they canride the miniature horses . 6. FORT ILOCANDIA is the only rated hotel in the Ilocos NorteRegion. This was originally constructed by theMarcos Family for their daughter Ireneswedding reception. This spanish inspired resortmainly attracts taiwanese gamblers but it stillnever fails to charm the first-time Filipino tourist.It is best suited for hosting conferences andevents but it could be quite expensive to stayhere for your familys vacation or use it just asa stopover. If you decide to stay here, mightas well maximize the facilities and even walkto the famous Sand Dunes of Suba. 7. SAND DUNES OF SUBA This is only place in the Philippines where you can find a desert in the seemingly endless coastal sand dunes of Suba. It is about an hours walk along the beach from Fort Ilocandia. It is quite an exercise and walking in these sand dunes feels like meditating. The sky feels a little bit closer. It is a an awesome place for reflection. I suggest that you walk during early morning and ensure that it wont rain. 8. PAOAY CHURCHThe church was started by the Augustinian Fr.Antonio Estavillo in 1694. It was completed in 1710and rededicated in 1896, just three years beforethe expulsion of Spanish rule in the country. Thestyle of the church has been dubbed EarthquakeBaroque by Alicia Coseteng, one of the earlyauthorities on colonial church architecture.Because the buttresses extend out considerablyfrom the exterior walls, the entire visual experiencebecomes three-dimensional, unlike most of thechurches in the country where the inherent beautyof the church is limited only at the facade. 9. MALACANANG OF THE NORTH Malacaang of the North or Malacanang ti Amianan in Ilocano is always present in everyones itinerary when planning or visiting the northern province of Ilocos Norte. Dubbed as Marcos Country Many of Marcos familys remnant still exist in Ilocos like Malacaang of the North. It is within a 5-hectare property that overlooks the Paoay Lake. It serves as a home to the Marcos Family til 1996. 10. BLUE LAGOON/ MAIRA-IRA 11. SAUD BEACHWhen people say Pagudpud beach, it usuallyrefers to the popular Saud Beach. "Pagudpudactually consists of three vast beaches, strungalong Luzons northern edge and hemmed in byhuge points jutting out into the ocean. Coconutpalm-backed Saud Beach is where the resortsare. Maira-ira, also known as Blue Lagoon, is afew points east. Deserted Pansian beach is stillfurther on, near the bother of Cagayan Province.It should be called the "anti-Boracay of the North"since it boast of beautiful white beach backedby rows of coconut palms minus the noise andnightlife of Boracay. 12. BANGUI WINDMILLSBangui Windmills Magnificent WhiteGiants of Bangui The latest attractionin Bangui bay where Pagudpud islocated is these fifteen huge 23 storeyshigh Giant Electric Fans that might aswell be built by Aliens. The commonmistake of people is just to be satisfiedat looking at these windmills from adistant view from the Bangui look outon the way to Pagudpud. You dontneed a tour guide to reach this place.You just need to know where to turnand go straight passing by a village allthe way to this Bangui coast . 13. KABIGAN FALLS 30 mins trekking time from main road, crossing 3 streams for more info: http://acrossthelaine.blogspot.com/2011/12/m y-ilocos-get-away-day-2-kabigan-falls.html P20 preservation fee 14. CAPE BOJEADOR LIGHTHOUSE Fascinated by Philippine history and old architecture, lighthouses were my favorite age-old structures built by colonist in the country. From the coastal town of Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte, the journey took us south towards the town of Burgos to see a historical landmark called Cape Bojeador Lighthouse. Its name came from the martyr priest Padre Burgos. It has been tching over ships for more than 100 years. 15.
