Facing the West Philippine Sea, Pagudpud's beaches are nothing short of amazing: Stretches of white sand lined with coconut trees and crystal-blue water. Located at the northernmost tip of the Luzon island, Pagudpud is a sleepy coastal town. But the locals are definitely generous with their smiles. It's not overrun by tourists yet, but it's getting there.
You can reach Pagudpud ...
through the Maharlika Highway. It goes up the coast with rolling tropical hills on one side and the blue water on the other. There are no traffic jams here, so if you have a chance to drive, this is the place to do it.

This week, join Drew as he discovers something new in a place he has visited many times before - Ilocos! Check out their waterfalls, extreme outdoor activities, and mouthwatering local dishes.
Ilocos Norte is much more than just the iconic "pinakbet" and the Marcoses. It's also about other beautiful excesses. And this abundance is also what keeps me coming back here since I first visited it in the 90s.
First of all sorry for some shaky clips. Because we only use phone to get those clips and this was my first upload here so it's on a trial and error basis I'm sorry hehe.
How does it feel to go somewhere without having an itinerary?

Many things have been said and written about Ilocos, being a famous tourist site in the country. It's a melting pot of rich culture and history, good food, pretty beaches, and scenic places. I won't discuss too much on history as I am not well-versed in that, nor give a detailed itinerary because surely, the information can be easily accessed online. Instead, I'll show the reasons why I love the place amid the redundancy of praises, photos, and fame.
