Ilocos Sur Itinerary - 3D/2N Tour in Vigan, Bantay, and Sta. Maria

I was supposed to visit Vigan just to see the Heritage Village and take photos of it; however, i found out there are still lots of beautiful spots in Vigan that is worth visited. So my supposed day tour turned into a 3 days and 2 night much longer than my stay in Ilocos Norte.


The sun was already setting when i arrived in Vigan and i still have to find descent place to stay. Basing on my Lonely Planet guide book, Vigan Hotel which is located in Burgos street has the cheapest price. The hotel is also a walking distance from the Heritage Village and Plazas. Places i visited in Ilocos Norte includes the Heritage Village, St. Augustine Parish Church in Bantay, Ilocos Sur, and one of the baroque churches in the Philippines, Santa Maria Church.
