Vigan Tour, Ilocos Adventure

‘Nostalgic’ – one word that comes to my mind when you say Vigan, Ilocos. I’ve been wanting to visit the place as I am really a fan of old houses and ancient structures, also I've been hearing how beautiful it is.

Vigan, the capital city of Ilocos Sur is the world heritage site that it is one of the few Hispanic towns left in the Philippines and it is known for its cobblestone streets and unique architecture, which is a Spanish colonial architecture. The term Vigan referred the area as ‘Bee Gan’ by the Chinese settlers which means the ‘Beautiful shore’. Then Spanish conquistadors interchanged V and B, which is the name, used to this day as Vigan.

Paoay Sand Dunes, Ilocos Adventure

One of the famous places that we visited on our Ilocos adventure is the Paoay Sand Dunes, that obviously my favorite part of our entire trip because I made a separate post for this one.

Paoay Sand Dunes is located in Paoay at the north of Ilocos. It is a huge stretch of dunes or hill of sands where you can go on a 4x4 off road challenge or go sand boarding if you want to get down and dirty. And this place is not only popular for those sports adventures but also been the location for film makers. Movies like Panday, Temptation Island, and Himala were shot in here.

Pan De Amerikana, Marikina

October last year, I was looking for a place that is out of the ordinary, food trip that would perfectly fit my
budget, and one that I can practice my photography skills.

And Pan De Amerikana is the exact place I was looking for. I've heard and read already good reviews about this place but I just don't have any chances on visiting it even though it is just near our home in Quezon City. And so when I had my free time on a weekend, I grabbed my chance right away.

Sky Fun Amusement Park at Sky Ranch, Tagaytay

I've been to Tagaytay several times already but this time I wanted to try out the new attraction of the city-- the 'Sky Fun Amusement Park at Sky Ranch'. So my boyfriend and I being spontaneous on our weekend   trip, we searched on how we can get there, checked the reviews about the place, and then visited right   away.
