Laoag travel photography – Philippines

DSC_06155_laoag_philippines

 

Laoag is a city located on the Northwest coast of Luzon. It is also the capital of the province of Ilocos Norte. It is a short 2-hour bus journey from Vigan.

I will keep it short as I am still trying to understand why Laoag constantly pops up on travel itinerary for Luzon Island. The interest of visiting Laoag is close to null. There are only a few things to see such as the Sinking Bell Tower, the St. William’s Cathedral, the Tobacco Monopoly Monument, the Ilocos Norte Capitol and the Paoay Church which one is 17km far from the city center. This roughly takes two hours.

I highly recommend not to go to Laoag ; especially if you are short on time. It is just a waste of time in my opinion. There is probably much more to see in the surroundings.
