Heritage village of the Philippines!

A land of industrious and hardworking people, situated between the mountains and the sea – that is what Ilocandia is known to many. The Southern half boasts of Sta. Maria Church – a UNESCO world heritage site – and the renowned city of Vigan and its nostalgic Calle Crisologo.

The Northern half is associated with the late former President Ferdinand Marcos, being the region of his roots. Aside from the active city of Laoag, Ilocos Norte boasts of desert-like sand dunes, the naturally carved Kapurpurawan rock formations, the Bangui windmills which resemble gigantic fans, ancient shrines of Paoay and Bacarra, the monumental lighthouse of Cape Bojeador, and the crystal clear beaches of Pagudpud often labelled as the “Boracay of the North.”

Culture junkies will get a kick out of making earthen bugnay jars and reliving the past through museum tours. Definitely on the list is the sampling of local cuisine. Drive hunger away with the famous Ilocos empanada (taste the difference between Batac and Vigan’s); warm the body and soul with piping hot miki noodles and sinanglao; let your mind be blown by dinardaraan, a unique Ilocano rendition of the traditional dinuguan; and finally, give up paradise for a sinful bite of thunderously crunchy bagnet.
