I have been wishful thinking for years that I will be able to visit Ilocos Province. It is one of the places I want to visit in the Philippines because of beautiful sceneries, food and of course the beach. Ilocos is located on the northern part of Luzon. For this trip, we are lucky enough as we were able to visit Ilocos Norte (including Pagudpod) and Ilocos Sur.
We started our extended weekend trip in Ilocos Norte specifically in Laoag City. Laoag City is known as the norternmost city in the Philippines and the capital of Ilocos Norte.
The following day was supposedly a beach day but the sun did not show up. Nevertheless, we still headed to Pagudpod. The rain will not stop is to explore the sleepy town of Pagudpod. There are a lot to see in Pagudpod and eventhough the skies are not generally beach friendly we still enjoyed our trip to Pagudpod.
This is just the first part of my Ilocos travel diary. Part two is all about the heritage province of Ilocos Sur. Stay tuned.
‘Til the next pose & post!
