Appreciate the rich history and culture of Laoag and Vigan in this family-friendly sightseeing day trip in Ilocos. If you like heritage and culture, this guided day tour would be a good choice.

Your day starts when you are picked up by your guide from your accommodation in Laoag City or Vigan. From there you will go to Malacañang of the North, a two-story mansion overlooking Paoay Lake.

The mansion is the former home of the Marcos family. Now a tourist destination, it features the programs of former Philippine president Ferdinand Marcos during his 20-year term. It has seven rooms, each one having its own theme. You can learn more about the Marcoses when you visit the Marcos Museum where you will see the late president’s memorabilia and mausoleum.

From the museum, you will head to Paoay Church, a UNESCO World Heritage Site and National Cultural Treasure. You will also check out the unique sinking bell tower. Over a century old, this structure is a popular landmark in the region and known to sink an inch or so every year.

Drop by the Museo Ilocos Norte next to learn more about the northern part of the region. On display are items and exhibits showcasing the culture of the Ilocanos.

In Vigan, your next stop, you will see the famous Calle Crisologo, the iconic street that brings to mind the Spanish colonial era. Its cobblestone streets and traditional Spanish houses make for the perfect backdrop to your photos.

From Calle Crisologo, continue your stroll to Plaza Burgos. Get a glimpse of local life and have a taste of the delectable Vigan empanada. You will also have the opportunity to see Syquia Mansion, Pagburnayan Pottery Making, and the Heritage Village.
