If someone would ask me about the longest travel time I spent on the road, indisputably I would say it happened during my tour at the equally stupefying provinces of Ilocos Sur and Ilocos Norte. Longer and exhausting it may seemed but experiencing the wonders of these two provinces is truly electrifying. This is Byaheng Ilocos Sur, Lakbay Ilocos Norte, the first ever Travel Series of the Travel Teller for 2012.
From Davao City to these two provinces of Ilocos Region, The Travel Teller spent three fun-packed days of adventures and excitements going around the must-see, must-experience destinations in this part Ilocandia. Touristy as it may seem but these places define the Wealth and Wonders of this part of the Philippines, a country of fun and excitement.
Ilocos Sur and Ilocos Norte are two significant provinces belonging to the Ilocos Region located in the northwest of Luzon. These two provinces offer a number of popular destinations for tourists, local and foreign alike. They are famous for their cultural heritage and natural wonders. They have various natural attractions that guarantee unparalleled adventures. Both are exceptional destinations best for those who quest for fun, culture, heritage and nature.
For beach lovers and sun worshippers, these two provinces are equally paradise to consider. Their proximity to the South China Sea now called West Philippine Sea lures tourists to come and enjoy the heat and waves of Ilocos’ sea and sands. Speaking of sands, Ilocos Sur and Ilocos Norte are both homes of the famous Ilocos Sand Dunes, favorite location for local and international film. Beyond that, there are many spectacular and inviting places to see in these two provinces.
Join me as I chronicle this exciting adventure from my home in Davao City to the sparkling white sand beaches of Pagudpud, to the majestic Windmills of Bangui, to the amazing Kapurpurawan Rock of Burgos, to the vintage street of Calle Crisologo in Vigan and many many more. To date, this is the longest travel time I spent on the road but every bit of it is worth it. This is the longest trip I surely will never forget.
