Exploring Ilocos Sur

Let me take you to a joyride. Let’s discover the beauty of Ilocos Sur!

NOTE: First five parts are here, here here, here and here! And I think this will be the penultimate one! 😀

Buckle up and let’s continue the rrrrride! 😀 

We are now heading to Ilocos Sur! 😀

FYI: Ilocos Sur (Ilocano: Abagatan nga Ilocos; Tagalog: Timog Ilokos) is a province in the Philippines located in the Ilocos Region in Luzon. Vigan City, located on the mouth of theMestizo River is the provincial capital.

And it is the home of the famously breathtaking…

The Old City called Vigan

FYI: Vigan City is a UNESCO World Heritage Site in that it is one of the fewHispanic towns left in the Philippines where its structures remained intact, and is well known for its cobblestone streets and a unique architecture that fuses Philippine and Oriental building designs and construction, with colonial European architecture. In May 2015, Vigan City was officially recognized as one of the New7Wonders Cities together withBeirut, Doha, Durban, Havana, Kuala Lumpur, and La Paz.[4]

To say it is breathtaking at night would be an understatement…

Agree? 🙂

After our eyes were ‘full’, it our tummies turn to explore! So we went to…

The Uno Grille

And we ordered…

Are we happy with these boodle set? Look!

We are? 😀

The Hotel

After eating (a looot!), we then went to our oh-so lovely hotel, Hotel Luna.

Before we slept… we had some fun-time with the camera and played Uno as well! 😀

Lights were turned off.

Tomorrow’s our last day in Ilocandia.

With prayers to see Mr. Sun, we said goodnight!

More travel stories and photos next week! And next week will be the finale! 😀

I hope you’re enjoying the ride?

      1. I put out “Natural” popcorn this morning for the birds instead of buttered and they won’t eat it. LOL! The cats won’t eat it either. Isn’t that crazy! They all only like the buttered popcorn.

      2. They are going to have to get use to that all natural popcorn because I’m NOT going to eat it! At least until the box is gone. The cats need to eat their food and NOT the popcorn, so I’m glad they won’t eat it.

      1. I knew it! That’s a lovely looking pool, it reminds me of a setting in a movie (I forgot what exactly). Haha. Thank for sharing all of these, Rosema. I’m gonna have to take note of all of your trips so I would know my way when I finally get to visit Ilocos. 😀 😀 😀

  2. I’m finding joy in the journey. Vigan sounds like a wonderful city (maravilloso). The food and your hotel read as grand experiences, too. I’ve played Uno. Continued Happy Trails! And thanks for bringing all this to us.
