    • Planning a Laoag-Vigan-Pagudpod for our Wedding Anniversary

      by jhean22 Online Now Dec 5, 2011 at 7:18 AM

      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.

      Thanks in advance!
