Thank goodness for air travel, people no longer have to endure over 12 hours of road trip from Manila to reach the exquisite Laoag City and the rest of the Ilocos region. This small, compact city is considered the jewel of the northern Philippines with its reasonable amounts of stunning views and heritage sites.
The most popular attraction in Laoag City is La Paz San Dunes where one can enjoy a heart-wrenching 4x4 ride or a more leisurely sandboarding activity. You may also visit the 16th Century Laoag Church, first built of wood and thatch. Today, it’s an impressive sight of Italian renaissance architecture reminiscent of the city’s Spanish-colonial era. Laoag City is also surrounded by prized attractions, including the UNESCO World Heritage Site Paoay Church, Malacañang of the North, Bangui Windmills, Kapurpurawan Rock Formations, Rizal Amusement Park, Vigan, and the beaches of Pagudpud.
Surfing enthusiast may complete their northern Luzon experience with a visit to La Union, a worthy side trip when you visit Laoag.
