Finding Serenity in Ilocos Norte, Philippines

it was summer of 2010 when i get to visit Ilocos Norte for the first time. . ~12 hours travel via commute route from Manila, Ilocos Norte is totally worth the numbing of your legs and butt. .

the fresh air, amazing scenery, and hospitable people are just few reasons why i love the place. . don’t expect night life and hardcore parties. . it’s a serene place; away from the metro. . 🙂 just chill. .

a must see includes Kapurpurawan Rock Formation, Bangui Windmills, Cape Bojeador Lighthouse, Kaibigan Falls, Patapat Viaduct, and of course Pagudpud beach + Blue Lagoon. sadly i didn’t get the chance to visit Laoag – Paoay Church and sand dunes. . grrr. . i can always come back. . hihi. .

if i remember it correctly, we (i must say i was not alone) stayed at Polaris beach house. . the package they offered me is sooooo reasonable plus the staff are so friendly. .
