Places to Visit in Vigan, Ilocos Sur 2017


 Vigan is one of the most popular cities to visit in the Philippines because of its preserved Spanish colonial and Spanish architecture. It was my first time to visit Vigan, Ilocos Sur and I truly had an amazing time. Although the drive going there was quite challenging since it took us about 7 hours including the stops we had to make for eating snacks and going to the washroom. 😁

We left at around 10 PM in Manila and we arrived in Vigan at around 6:30 in the morning. I mostly slept in the car while listening to my Spotify travel playlist and woke up at 5 AM to watch the sun rise. I was most excited about the food in Vigan because I love Ilocos Empanada & Longganisa! Every time a friend or family member visits Vigan, I always ask them to bring me local Vigan food! πŸ’• Even if there are a few places in Manila that sells Ilocos Empanada, the taste and the flavor is still different in Vigan! If you're planning to visit Ilocos Sur, make sure to check out these places in Vigan and bring your camera because almost every corner is ig worthy! πŸ˜ƒ

Places to Visit:
  • Quirino Bridge
  • Bantay Bell Tower
  • Baluarte
  • Hidden Garden (for Lunch!)
  • Pagburnayan (jar making)

These are the places we got to visit but there are still more places in Vigan that you can go to. There are also a lot of restaurants and cafes around. You can also buy Ilocos Empanada and other local food at Calle Crisologo! :)
