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.

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.

Second day in Ilocos! You can read about our first day here. And as I've mentioned in my previous post, I booked the tours thru our hotel. A tour guide was with us for this day and the next day. It was a jam packed day for us. Ganun talaga if you book tours, maybe next time we can DIY our tour na din. The problem with traveling with kids, schedules aren't always followed. Haha!
