    I assumed that you'll be going/leaving via Laoag airport. Here's my inputs:

    Jan 18 - go straight to Pagudpud; stay overnight
    Jan 19 - tour of Pagudpud (falls, blue lagoon, patapat bridge); stay overnight
    Jan 20 - tour of Bangui and Burgos on your way to Laoag; tour of Laoag and if time permits, you can visit Sarat; stay overnight
    Jan 21 - tour of Paoay, Batac and Bantay on your way to Vigan; stay overnight
    Jan 22 - go back to Laoag for your trip back

    Normally, I don't suggest staying in Laoag since there's not much too see in the city. But because you have about 5d/4n, you need not rush from one place to another. You may even want to reserve your tour of Laoag on your last day and just concentrate on neighboring towns on Jan 20.

    Vigan is also a small city where tourist spots are close to each other. It's a city better seen on foot. Heritage Village at night looks like you're transported back to the Spanish time.
