I've read some of the blogs regarding trips to Pagudpud. This will be a big help for us in going there as we are planning to make the trip this April. I have few questions in mind though:
What are the reccommended hotels to stay in Vigan, Laoag and Pagudpud?
What is the approximate travel time from Pagudpud to Manila?
Thanks a lot!
I already read some inputs here in the forum but I have some other inquiries to those people who had been in the said places. My gf and I will be planning to visit first Vigan-go to Laoag then Pagudpud this June. Hope you can share your experience.
1. Travel time from Manila to Vigan?
2. Where in Vigan will be the drop-off so that Driver/Kunduktor will know? Is it Calle Crisologo?
3. Estimated hours to tour Vigan
4. Estimated hours travel going to laoag?
1. Where we can ride a transpo going to Laoag?
2. Are these places can accomodate in 3 hours tour? Or do you think these are enought to explore Laoag?
sinking bell tower
saint william cathedral
malacanang of the north
marcos photo gallery
Sta. Monica Church
3. Since we are targeting minimal time in this places, can we catch a transpo moving to Pagudpud? This will be our last stop.
4. Estimated travel hour from Laoag to Pagudpud
1. As I read some blogs here, which one should explore first, the North Bound or the South Bound where Bangui WindMills is there?
2. Estimated time exploring the North Bound? and South Bound?
3. As I read on other part of this forum, theres a transportation from Pagudpud to Manila. Some says you have to go to Laoag first. Or do we need to go back again to Vigan? Just want to verify
4. Estimated travel hour going back to Manila IF theres a transpo available in Pagudpud
1. 4 days and 3 nights is a good one or a short one?
2. 5k budget per head, swak ba? or kapos?
Thanks in advance guys!

Hi everyone, hope someone can help me patiently. Jan. 22, 2012 will be our 1st year anniversary, me and my hubby are planning to celebrate it in Vigan.
We are planning to start travelling on Friday night, Jan. 20 (would that be okay?) and will be going home on Monday morning, Jan. 23.
Can anyone give me a good itinerary for the said date?
which would be better for the budget of 10k for both of us, by land or by air going to Laoag?
We are both newbies so I will really appreciate your help. We don't want to avail tour packages because they are very expensive.
