If you're looking to bask in Philippine colonial history while still enjoy the perks of traveling away from the Metro (read: good food and one-of-a-kind experience), your best bet would be Vigan City in Ilocos Sur. It's a UNESCO World Heritage Site that has maintained its 16th-century charm. And in case you don't know yet, one of the most convenient ways to get to this part of northern Luzon is through Partas' luxury bus service. A one-way ticket is at P960.


This commuter bus has 26 recliner seats with only three seats in a row, ensuring spacious legroom and a less crowded ride. It also features an on-board restroom; individual entertainment system with movies, games, and music through a bus tablet; free WiFi; and USB charging port. You don't even have to waste time lining up at the terminal for your tickets because you can book a seat online.

The route isn't point-to-point and you might spend some time at a stopover, so travel may still take seven to nine hours. But some riders have sworn that a ride can take just six hours-on a really good day. The luxury bus has daily trips at 8 a.m. from Cubao to Vigan.
