So what is an Ilocos trip if we will not visit the Vigan Heritage Site? but before that let me share you some other tourist spots we’ve been through.
It was our last day at the beautiful Ilocos, sad! and for our day 3 we first visited the
when we got there, there is a manong who owns a horse and offers a ride for only 20 peso! oh diba barato! kapag dito yun sa manila or sa baguio hundreds of pesos yun before you will be able to have a horse ride pero kay manong only 20 pesos so Gora!
when it’s my turn, manong asked me if I wanted to let the horse reach up the knee level of the ocean. When we are approaching the shore natakot ako because it was not just like a typical shore na panay agos lang ang waves, pababa pa yun so I said “balik nalang po tayo” and I heard marami na daw namatay dun so wag na po , balik niyo na po ako sa pamilya ko hahaha…
After that we went to Kapurpurawan Rock Formation! Puraw from its Ilocos term meaning “white”. It is because of how powdery white the rock was and how it was beautifully created by nature itself.
two words “Picture Perfect”!
Grabe nature has always something to offer! I just realized that technology overpowered our ability to live this life, I feel sad every time I see a child having fun with any gadgets… dapat di ganoon! aside from we became unproductive we tend to ignore what the real meaning of life is!!
life is about living it having a good life, a meaningful life, an abundant life! and okay sorry
not sorry for ranting.
Anyway, we also visited the Cape Bojeador Lighthouse
where you can also see a beautiful view above
Theeen, we went straight to one of the 7 wonders of the world
The Vigan Heritage Site!
It is one of the best town in Asia that has a well preserved Hispanic houses

There is also a festival that’s about to happen when we got there so I must say that we are lucky to witness it 😉
They call it the Binatbatan Festival, I do not know what it is but all the dancers are having a two bamboo sticks in them so there must be a connection between the two haha I do not really know 😀 I’m sorry!
