What to Explore in Ilocos Norte?

What makes Ilocos Norte (or the whole part of Ilocandia) so popular is because it’s a destination with complete package. There are sceneries to enjoy, festivals to experience, native food to try, and historical sites and churches to visit. People from the south don’t mind the 10-12 hours drive from Manila because everything in you see in Ilocos are worth it. So aside from the famous beach and falls, what are the other places to explore in Ilocos Norte?

Bangui Windmills – Just simply being there while having a closer view and hearing the sound of the giant “electric fan” is magnificent. I’ve been here couple of times but each visit seems to excite me. A nice place to visit.

Casa Consuelo – A Discovery

After 2 nights at Pannzian Beach and Mountain Resort, we decided to try resorts somewhere near Blue Lagoon. My agenda is to take a sunset/sunrise shot of the lagoon. However, as we’re looking for a place to stay, the initial resort we have in mind “Kapuluan Vista” is fully booked that time. So we have no choice but to look for another one.

Fortunately, there was this “nice” place (at least on my first impression) that caught my attention. At first, we’re hesitant to inquire. And when we did, the air-conditioned room are fully booked and only one fan room was available.

With intense heat that day, I originally prefer a cooler room as much as possible but since we don’t have much of a choice, we decided to take a look at the available room.

Exploring Pagudpud – Timmangtang Rock and Bantay Abot Cave

Another interesting places to visit while in Pagudpud are the Timmangtang Rock and Bantay Abot Cave. These are rock/land formation that seems to be picturesque. It’s very near to each other and situated along the road going to Blue Lagoon.

Simply being there was a great experience. I spent some time here for my usual photography but wish I could stay longer. A must visit while in Pagudpud.

Highly Recommended!
