ang negra ko! haha! ang sarap magswim sa pagudpud beach! ;D

Sa mga magttrike ng south and north tour, ask ninyo ang contact ninyo if sakop pa rin lahat kasi may new policy sila dun starting Dec 1, hindi na pwede ang trike from Saud for South tour kasi out of line na. Nagreklamo daw ang mga trike drivers ng Bangui, mga taga-Saud lang daw ang kumikita. Kaya iyon. Ang nangyari samin, ang trike na nirent namin for North Tour, kinontact iyong kakilala niya sa Bangui para iyon ang mag hatid naman sa amin for South Tour, same rate pa rin, 300 ang paghatid from Saud to Bangui dadaanan na rin ang Pagudpud Arc then south tour 300.

we'll be going in vigan-laoag-pagudpud this december, we have a car problem lang is, hindi kaya kami magkaligaw ligaw paghahanap ng mga tourist spots? madali lang ba silang hanapin?

Sis, balitaan mo naman ako sa tour niyo via car.
Plan din namin pumunta dun 3rd week of January with private car.

Kung may nakatry na din magtour ng ilocos with private car pa-advice naman po. Thank u!

Hello girls!

Anybody know what time nagsasara ang lighthouse? We've been there before but we were there around lunchtime. Balik kami Ilocos this week for another road trip, this time with some family members.. Bukas pa kaya to ng mga 5pm-ish?

^^ nicolle, you might want to check Green R Hotel, its not within Calle Crisologo area but infront of Vigan Public Market and near sa mga bus terminal (particularly Partas). Oks naman yung place, very safe at malinis. Mababait pa yung mga staffs. 700/room for 2pax and just add 100 every additional pax. Room includes 2 beds, a/c, cable and free wifi (sala)..

^ No Nicolle. Di maingay yung lugar. For the parking, I'm not sure though me wide space sila infront their building. Maybe you can verify it when you call them..

^ sis, me own car ba kayo o by plane kayo punta dun? If by car, share ko na lang itinerary namin. 3nights kami bale dun. We went last week Thu-Sun.

Thurs - travel day. Left Manila around 4am. Arrived in Paoay around 2pm (with a couple of stopovers for breakfast, tsaka madalas magwiwi kasama namin, and inantok si hubby sa pag-drive kaya stop kami sandali para mag-nap sya). Late lunch at Herencia across Paoay church. After Paoay, Malacanang of the North. Then Fort Ilocandia. Dun kami overnight.

Fri - after breakfast and photoop, checked out of Fort Ilocandia. Next stop, Patapat Viaduct sa may Pagudpud, then lunch sa Kapuluan Vista sa Blue Lagoon. After lunch, Bangui Windmills. Then Cape Bojeador lighthouse for sunset (be there before 5pm kasi baka di na kayo papasukin nung caretaker). After, we traveled back to Laoag - checked in sa hotel then dinner sa Saramsam.

Sat - after breakfast, checked out of the hotel, and photoop sa may plaza/capitol tsaka sinking belltower. Then Batac (Marcos Museum and Mausoleum). Lakad to empanadahan and miki place for lunch. After lunch, Baluarte (zoo ni Chavit) sa Vigan. Me animal show din sila pag 2:30pm or 3pm. Then checked in sa hotel (one street from Calle Crisologo, very convenient). Calle Crisologo (i guess ito yung sinasabi mong "mga lumang bahay") at night, dinner at Cafe Leona, konting lakad sa may plaza.

Sun - after breakfast, went back to Calle Crisologo para kunin ang orders na longanisa and bagnet. Late lunch sa Isdaan sa Tarlac.

Medyo relaxed yung pace namin, para din di sobrang mapagod si hubby kasi sya nag-drive e. Hope you can get ideas from this. :)

If mainly swimming, Pagudpud na kayo diretso. Kapuluan Vista is nice, sa Blue Lagoon sya though. You might wanna check out the resorts in Saud beach, yun ang main beach sa Pagudpud. Di kami nag-stay dun e so wala ako masa-suggest na resort sa may Saud beach area.. 

On your way home, pwede kayo alis early, like after breakfast sa Pagudpud, daan ng Bangui windmills (a must, IMO), then Batac for Marcos Museum, then Vigan for Baluarte (ito mismo ang zoo ni Chavit) and Calle Crisologo (heritage street/houses). Though for me, it's ok to skip Baluarte and just go to Calle Crisologo in Vigan, if pressed for time na kayo..

Ilang nights pala kayo? If you can spare an extra night, pwede yung last night nyo sa Vigan na.

Parang ansaya ng trip nyo kasi madami kayo. :)

Naku, di ko matantya gas. But for our itinerary above na madaming driving, i think naka-3 times kami nagpa-gas (full tank, automatic stop). Dala namin Montero na automatic. Pero di naman kami laging sagad before magpa-gas. Usually, pag nasa 1/4 na lang, nagpapa-gas na kami.

Sa Laoag, we stayed in Fort Ilocandia tsaka Laoag Renzo Hotel. Sa Vigan, we stayed sa Hotel Salcedo De Vigan.

Sis, update sa gas: i asked hubby. Almost 6k daw ang gas during the 4-day trip - roughly 2 full tanks daw ang na-consume namin. Take note na madami driving namin, tapos depends din sa car na dala nyo.
