I guess it is safe to say that a trip to Ilocos will not be completed without visiting the picture worthy attractions offered by the Bangui Windmills. Those windmills in Burgos (Check : Burgos Windfarm and Kapurpurawan Rock Formation) might put those people with OCD on whack but those in Bangui will put them back in calm state due to its straightly aligned windmills along the shore.
Located at the municipality of Bangui in Ilocos Norte, the windmills are strategically place facing the west Philippine Sea from where the winds blows towards the land. According to Northwind Bangui Bay Project which operates the windmills, the location along the shore is optimal in removing windbreaks.
