Vigan-Laoag-Pagudpod 3 day tour this December

Hi, going by plane on a 3 day tour with family in Ilocos for the first time and have few questions to help us plan the trip:

From Laoag Airport: Are there vans we could rent? are there also drivers we could hire to drive us around? is it safe, can they be trusted? any recommendations?

From what I've been reading, Vigan-Laoag-Pagudpod is a better itinerary, can anybody recommend a hotel on each location? I've read Fort Ilocandia is a bit worn out already.

Laoag-Vigan-Pagudpud Trip. I need a vacation package.  (3 Answers)

Hi, I would like to know if there's anyone who does something like a vacation package which includes hotel, transpo ride to different tourist spots in the area. Or at least, who could recommend a very reasonable priced hotel but must be clean, and must be near the airport and the city. Another thing, what else can we see in the three destinations mentioned in the subject? Lastly, is there a beach in Laoag? I know Pagudpud is known for it. HOPING FOR A RESPONSE!

First time in Laoag  (1 Answer)

i'm a person who's always looking for the cheaper deal. got my family (husband and 2 kids, ages 3 and 5) a cebupac promo (p1900 for the 4 of us) for laoag in september and then just recently a groupon voucher for 50% off for playa resort in curimao (thought it was a good deal kahit na i know it's far from laoag)

my question is the hotel offers the vigan tour at 4k (inclusive of gas etc), and i've been reading forums and looking up tour agencies in the internet and asking the given numbers for cheaper tours. the cheapest so far is 3,500 with everything else 4k and up. is that the normal rate now? can anyone refer a cheaper service? we're planning to have a laoag-pagudpud tour the next day na balikan lang and then vigan on our last day so our drop-off will be at the airport na sana.

the airport transfer of the hotel is also pricey, almost the same as our airfare! at 9pm estimated arrival, are there any jeeps or trikes that could take us cheaply to curimao?

thanks in advance! :)

Laoag and Vigan Tour  (1 Answer)

We are a group of 7 who will visit Laoag and Vigan on May 16 - 18. Since, we'll be arriving late on the 16th, we will go to Vigan the following day for a 1 day tour and on the 18th tour around Laoag City. We want to know if buses are on a scheduled trip in going to Vigan and what time is the last trip from Vigan going to Laoag? Also, how much would it cost if we hire a van? Since we're on a tight schedule and our flight going back to manila will be on the night of May 18, may we also know what nearby places in Laoag we can go. Would it still be possible for us to visit the Bangui Mills and Pagudpod on our last day?

Thanks so much in advance and hoping to hear from you.

4 days Ilocos tour  (1 Answer)

Hello everyone!
We are planning to have a vacation in Ilocos this comming July or August probably going there by bus from Manila. My fiancee and I we're thinking of visiting Pagudpud, Laoag and Vigan. I already searched the net for possible accommodation for us to stay. I am considering staying at Evangeline Beach Resort in Pagudpud because of their romance package which includes room accommodation for 2, half day pagudpud tour, 3 set meals for 2 (breakfast in bed, lunch and dinner by the beach) and body massage for 2 for only 4,700 during off season. For Laoag we plan to stay at Balay Da BLas and thinking of staying also at Grandpa's Inn in Vigan.

My questions are:

1. Which place is the best for us to go 1st? which place must we atay longer?
2. How long it will take us to tour around Laoag and Vigan?
3. Is it possible to cover Laoag and Vigan in one day?
4. Is it advisable to hire a car/van for our tour around Laoag and Vigan? If yes, How much it cost? Can anyone refer car for hire.

Your answers, advice and suggestions are welcome and will be of great help.
Thank you so much in Advance!

Laoag Internat'l airport transportation  (1 Answer)

A friend and I will be visiting Laoag city by plane this coming April(Holy week). We will arrive at the international airport around 9:00 PM. So I'm thinkin' if there are still public transportation which could take us to the hotel we booked(Balay da Blas) which isn't so far from the airport.The hotel charges P500.00 one-way transfer which I think is a rip-off! I'm a local traveler and I think it's expensive for just about 15 minutes ride.Anyone who has been to Laoag city recently? Pls give your comments/suggestion/s. Many thanks!!

Illocos Tour  (2 Answers)


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.

recommendations on accomodations and rental car please!

My husband and I are planning to visit Laoag in April, and have been reading through some of the postings on this forum. We are trying to decide between Fort Ilocandia and Java Hotel - any one out there who has stayed at either place? Which one is better? Also trying to decide between Saud Beach Resort and Kapuluan Vista Resort.

Would really appreciate some referrals for a rental car in the area - was hoping to go to Paoay Church/Malacanang of the North when we arrive, Vigan the next day and Pagudpod the following day. Does anyone know how much is the going rate for cars?

Thanks so much in advance for all the help!
