Visiting Vigan City in Ilocos Sur, Philippines, transports you to an old-fashioned world—as old as the Spanish colonial era. It’s a UNESCO World Heritage Site and one of the best-preserved towns of its kind in Asia.
Expectedly, the top Vigan attractions are quaint structures dating back to as far as the 16th century. From cobblestone streets to horse-drawn carriages to baroque buildings, it feels like you are traveling back in time as you roam around Calle Crisologo. While you are at it, be sure to bring home some antique souvenirs and partake in Ilocano delicacies, like empanada, bagnet, longganisa, tupig, and chichacorn.
From Vigan, you may explore the rest of Ilocos Sur province or traverse farther north to Ilocos Norte. Explore Bangui Windmills, Pagudpud beaches, Paoay Church, La Paz Sand Dunes, Narvacan Outdoor Adventure Hub & more. Or try surfing in La Union, which is only about two hours away by land travel.
