Getting there

The fastest way to Ilocos Norte is taking an hour flight from Manila to the Laoag International Airport.

If you want to save money, you can take a 12-hour bus trip from Metro Manila. We rode a bus to see different provinces and views along the way like La Union and Tarlac. We took the Farinas bus going to Batac City where we began our trip and going back to Manila, we took the Partras bus in Vigan City.



Laoag City which is the capital of the province and has plenty of accommodation choices while in Ilocos Norte. Based on our travel, I can only suggest two accommodations in Ilocos Northe which I have stayed and visited as well.
