Go on a weekend road trip to Ilocos Norte and enjoy a day of touring some of its most popular attractions with this 2D1N travel package from Manila. This package already comes with a shared roundtrip Victory Liner deluxe bus tickets from Cubao in Metro Manila to Ilocos, shared accommodations, and a day tour that includes stops at Paoay Church and the Paoay Sand Dunes.
Head to the Victory Liner bus terminal in Cubao to catch your shared deluxe bus to Ilocos. Your bus leaves at 10 PM, so make sure to be at the terminal on time. You will be spending the night traveling to Ilocos Norte, so wear clothes comfortable enough to sleep in.
At 6 AM the next day, you’ll have a stopover at La Union for breakfast and coffee. Note that the shops here may not accept debit or credit cards as payment, so bring enough cash for your meal. After breakfast, you’ll continue to make your way to Ilocos. You’ll arrive in Vigan first, and while there, you’ll go on a tour of Baluarte Resort & Zoo. Here, you can see and interact with some animals, including ostriches, donkeys, and deers. You’ll also see white lions, Bengal tigers, and leopards.
After exploring the zoo, you’ll head to Hidden Garden for lunch. Pay for your hearty meal, and then head to Paoay, where you’ll visit Paoay Church. Officially known as Iglesia de San Agustin de Paoay, this church, along with other Baroque churches in the Philippines, is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Don’t forget to also explore the church’s bell tower.
Next, you’ll head to Batac to sample the delicious Ilocano cuisine. You’ll make your way to the Batac Riverside Empanadaan, a food park home to several stalls that serve grilled meats, Ilocos empanada, and other local dishes. Make sure you have enough cash to try all the yummy food!
You'll then head to your hotel in Vigan and check in. Rest or explore Vigan on your own.
On day 3, check out of the hotel and enjoy pasalubong shopping at Marsha’s Delicacies and The Sisters Royal Bibingka & Food Products. You’ll have lunch at your own expense at Señorita Dulce House of Foods before boarding the bus that will take you back to Cubao, Metro Manila.
