Ilocos Tour - Day 1

May 16-18, 2014

This ilocos tour with some of my office mates have been moved for about 2 times because of work load but finally this summer of 2014, it pushed through!.

This is a packaged tour from travel ventours with inclusions of the van transportation (back and forth Manila-Ilocos), accommodation of 2 nights and the tour of the sites. Other people who joined us in the van were some friends of one of my office mates. Meet up was last thursday (May 15) at about 9 pm at trinoma and then traveled all the way to Ilocos sur during the night (with stop overs of course).

We arrived in Vigan at about past 6 in the morning and had our breakfast first at Marcia's. Then we went to our first tourist site stop, the Bantay church and bell tower. This is my 2nd time going here, first was last December of 2013 with my extended family.

Second stop was Baluarte where we saw several animals. I was excited to see the tigers! Well I'm a thomasian graduate so what do you expect? ;)

Third stop was the Marcos museum then we had lunch at Laoag city. After that was my dream destination in Ilocos, the Paoay Church! 

Next was the Paoay sand dunes, Malacanang of the North and the Cape Bojeador light house. After that, we went to see the Bangui wind mills.

That was the last visit for Day 1. We then went to Klasik inn to stay for the night. We were all dead tired but some were still able to drink and socialize before sleeping :)
