  • A Day Trip Through Ilocos Norte - Pagudpud Philippines

    Come with me as I take you on a nice day trip through the upmost northern part of the Philippines: Ilocos Norte. Here we settled down in a cute little municipality called Pagudpud which really had quite a lot to offer.

    We had a cute little resort named Casa Consuelo at Blue Lagoon beach. The day we were shooting this vlog we visited some of the main sights and attraction Pagudpud (an surrounding municipalities) has to offer. This included the Cape Bojeador Lighthouse, the Kapurpurawan Rock Formation, the Bangui Windmills, and the Kabigan Falls.

    Discovering The Less-touristy Side Of Ilocos Norte

    A few things have changed since I first visited Ilocos Norte six years ago: There is now a huge ?Paoay? sign made of bricks in front of San Augustine aka Paoay Church, more buildings and roads are being built and cemented for the convenience of tourists, and the mausoleum that used to house the body of former President Ferdinand Marcos is now empty.

    How To DIY A Budget-Friendly Ilocos Adventure

    When it comes to vacations, Ilocos isn't really top of mind. For one thing, getting there entails a 10 to 12 hour bus ride??"twice the amount of time you'll spend traveling to Baguio. You can opt to cough up some cash for a plane ride, but if you're a cheapskate like us, that might be out of the question (unless you're lucky enough to book during a seat sale). But set aside the arduous travel time, and you'll find a charming region with several surprises waiting for you. The best part? Your adventure need not be crazy expensive, especially when you're with your whole barkada.

    Ilocos Norte Without Maxing Out Your Budget

    In one of my travels, I was astounded by how much imprint the Spaniards left behind in the Northern part of Ilocos Region. The old churches and structures still stand proud in their places, and you can notice from the get-go that the local authorities try to maintain them well.
