Discover Vigan

We reached Ilocos region earlier than expected. It was only 4pm when we arrived in Vigan. The streets were quiet and calm. The lights made the place so romantic.Vigan is one of the Spanish colonial towns in Philippines so everything is vintage. We would love to stay a little longer but we were so hungry and we have to leave and look for a restaurant.

On our way home, we dropped by Vigan again to buy souvenirs and see the place at daytime.Now it's a little crowded. Tourists enjoy taking photos of the old buildings and the likes.
