Wandering Vigan -- The Arrival

Vigan is another five-hour travel from Baguio. The long road in going there was mountainous, scenic and enchanting.

Aside from being a fifth class city, it is the capital of the Province of Ilocus Sur. It is a World Heritage Site in that it is one of those Hispanic towns in Asia. It is also well-known for its cobblestone streets stretching between the century old houses preserved for its unique architectural designs.

We arrived there at late in the afternoon but the long travel never holds us off to being tired. It seemed that we have acquired new energy to enjoy the rest of the night and we were all excited to experience the night in the city where a fusion of old and new lifestyle exists.
