See the sights of Vigan which for the most part boasts of its great tourism owing to its rich cultural traditions and landmarks, consisting of more than 180 antique, well-preserved old-Spanish houses and architectural infrastructures that still date back in the 18th and 19th century eras.


Acknowledged as the only blooming Spanish colony in the entire country, Vigan has been highly safe-guarded and revamped as one of the chief historical tourist destinations in the country.

Wait till you explore the unique appeal of Laoag, the home of the famous, former president Ferdinand Marcos, and be mesmerized with its rich culture and traditions too. By far, tourism has been an instrument in contributing to the money-making industry of the Laoag City, permitting the growth and expansion of many business investments, with well-paved roads and exciting nearby tourist attractions. Fall in love with its Spanish-inspired church designs, Marcos-regime mansions, Laoag Sinking Bell Tower, Batac Museum, the heart-pumping 4x4 sand dunes adventure and a whole lot more.
