Viva Las Vigan! (an Ilocandia Adventure - Day 1)

I'm glad I have lakwatserang friends na nangangaladkad kung saan saan. There's no other perfect time for me to blog about our Ilocandia Adventure than today because it has been exactly a year ago since we went there (Time really does fly by sooo fast.•_•). Travel time from Manila to Laoag is approximately 10 hours, so we opted to take the airbus instead (hihihi!☺) via Philippine Airlines, and an hour after boarding, we were there already. 
Ang makulit, ang masokista at ang kaladkarin.Ü

We arrived almost lunch time, so our Ilocandia Adventure started out with a very hearty meal at La Preciosa, located in Rizal St., Laoag. Their crispy dinuguan is definitely a must-try!

Next stop is the Sarrat Church and Bell tower:
hanapin nyo 'ko! hihihi!Ü

Then off to the Sinking Bell Tower of Laoag: 
The 45-meter tall bell tower built by the Augustinian Friars in 1612.

The bunggang bunggang chandelier of Fort Ilocandia: 
parang ang gandang gawing earrings ng chandelier na yan.Ü

Still the amazing Fort Ilocandia:
I love those arches!

Next stop is the Malacañang Ti Amianan:
The Malacañang of the North

View of the Paoay Lake from President Marcos' room:
Ang ganda naman ng view ni Makoy.

Now, the Church of Paoay and Bell Tower:

Did you know, the tower was used as observation post by Katipuneros during the revolution?
 Last stop for the day, Playa Tropical Resort Hotel:

Strongly suggested! They have the best sunset view, plus they have this amazing infinity pool.

The moon looks so close:
I love the scroll! It reminds me of Naruto and the Village of Konoha.Ü

That concludes Day 1 of our Ilocandia Adventure.☺
