Holiday on March  (2 Answers)

Hi, A friend and me will be arriving in Laoag Airport on March 26 evening, and will be leaving on March 29, mid afternoon. Just some questions that I'm sure you can help me :
1. Would you recommend if we can just rent a car there? if yes, do you have any contact numbers that you can refer?
2. Please recommend where can we stay.
3. What itinerary would be best so we can maximize our visit to the very historic Ilocos, since we are just both balikbayans?
Appreciate your response.

Ilocos trip on a tight schedule

Hi there,

a friend of mine and I were planning to visit Ilocos. Plan is taking a bus from manila to ilocos on thursday night so we can start the tour on Friday morning up to Saturday afternoon. Then we'll take a bus on Saturday night going back to Manila. Is the time too short to visit the nice places in Ilocos? What are the most recommended places that we should prioritize visiting, considering the tight schedule?
We hope to visit Laoag-Pagudpod and Vigan but just picking the best spot to visit on each place to cover the 3 locations.

Hope you can help us.

directions  (3 Answers)

i've been to Ilocos a couple of years back with some friends and unfortunately i was not the one who made the itinierary.

this november i'll be ging back with my sister and her friends. we'll be arriving in Ilocos Norte at 1pm on nov 22 and we'll be leaving at 12nn of nov 26. I want to bring them around Ilocos Norte (including Paoay, Batac and Sarrat) as well as Vigana nd Pagudpud.

Since our first stop will be Laoag which would be the best direction to follow to maximize th trip? would it be Ilocos Norte/Vigan?Pagudpud then back to Ilocos Norte? or would it be more sensible to go Ilocos Norte/Pagudpud/Vigan then back to Ilocos Norte for our flght back to Manila?

thnx very much in advance.

Ilocos Tour  (2 Answers)

Hi,

My partner and me are doing a tour of Illocos from the 14 to th16th of Nov. We have looked at the various tour packages and found that they were either too expensive or they did not have a good itinerary.

Ideally we would like to spend a night each at Vigan, Laoag and Pagudpud. As many of the sights are along the way, the best way would be to have a hired vehicle, either a van or jeep so that we can stop along the way. However as we are only 2 the charges will be high.

We are trying to find if there are others who are touring there on these dates and if they are interested in hiring a vehicle for these journeys. If there is sufficient interests we can work the details out and see if something is feasible.

Looking forward to your responses.

kolobial travel  (2 Answers)

I am trying to book accommodations for a Christmas vacation trip to ilocos norte, and in order to reserve a room at Polaris in pagudpud without using the phone (i would have to call internationally) I have used the kolobial travel agencey. They are requesting that I pay the full price of the room in advance by transferring money into a phiippines bank account. I am just wondering if anyone has used Kolobial travel before, and whether it is advisable to make a reservation this way. I would rather not transfer money and find out later that I have no reservation. I haven't been able to find any information on booking through them, but they seem legitimate enough. Any thoughts?

Pagudpud-Laoag or Vigan (which should be first?)  (4 Answers)

We are planning to go to Ilocos, by bus this last week of May (so this is still considered as high season) and we chose Florida (deluxe bus) since they do a trip from Manila-Pagudpud 550 pesos, however, I'm not sure if it's better to go first in Pagudpud where we will stay for about two nights, can u also tell us please which is better to tour first the Northbound or Southbound? how much will it cost us? After Pagudpud, how and where we can get to Laoag can we also have those that we can visit here here.. One thing more in Vigan can u provide us an itinerary if we are going to stay there for one night only is it nice at Grandpa's Inn, how true that there are cameras peeping in each rooms? are they always And lastly, do we have to go back to Laoag in order for us to have a nice trip going back to Manila or there are buses already in Vigan where the buses have comfort rooms? And lastly, what if the weather is not good what can you recommend us to do if we are stuck into each of the places that we are heading to.. I think I raised too many questions, but I am willing to accept all your suggestion, because I hope that my visit to Ilocos would be fun, enjoyable but at the same time cost efficient.. I badly need your suggestions people, thanks so much..
