Ilocos Norte | A Rainy Weather with Bangui Windmill

Baguio City

When I was in Baguio I decided to continue the Northern Luzon trip and stayed at Ilocos for another couple days exploring Bangui Windmill, Cape Bojeador Lighthouse, Calle Crisologo, Bantay Bell Tower, MalacaƱang of the North, and Paoay Church. I did not visit Kapurpurawan Rock Formation because of huge waves that time.

Partas Bus Company 

Since the terminal of Partas is just beside Sm City Baguio, it's not hard to find. I bought a ticket bound for Laoag City in advance because of limited seats. The fare was around 350php for the 7 hour ride. The bus left Baguio by 7pm and arrived in Laoag City around 2am.

Supertram Lodge
I stayed at the SuperTram Lodge  for my whole duration.  Since I advised them that I will be checking in early in the morning, nice thing they waited me to arrive. I slept well because I was exhausted of the whole day non-stop exploring. I woke up around 7am rushing myself to fix and start exploring Ilocos.
Welcome to Laoag
I ate my breakfast quickly in a small carenderia near the bus station going to Pagudpud since I was planning to the northern part of Ilocos on that day. When I’m on board, I realized that the weather condition is bad, so I have decided to pass the Pagudpud trip and do the Bangui Wind Mill instead. I paid 60php from Laoag to Burgos and I advised the driver to drop me off in a tricycle station going to the Windmill.

The tricycle driver charges me a P200.00 for round trip, i think it is over priced. The weather is not really good and there is no souvenir shop that time, kuya driver told me that a week before I visited Bangui there is an accident happen on this site when the 3 teenage girls take a selfie in shore the huge wave takes the life of 3 girls. The two girls found in Burgos near in Bangui, but the other one finds them a day after of the accident . I went to the view deck to wait the bus going to laoag, but i will drop off at crossing to Cape Bojoador Lighthouse .

I was not expecting that the pool is super cold it just imagine like a cooler with full of ice cubes, let say the temperature is less than 15 degrees Celsius, so far this is my first time swimming experience  with a flowing fresh water pool coming from the mountain of Canlaon,  Yes! It's a fresh water.


Superior Room I was searching on the internet on where to spend a night, since my flight to Manila is early in the morning. Luckily, I found this hotel. A budget friendly and offers great service.

Bantayan Island via Estancia, Iloilo

Bantayan Island it is not a place for a shopping or an adventure. This island is all about peace. If you want to have  break in the crowded city, the noise, the pollution and the stress, then come to this peaceful island of Bantayan in Cebu and discover what Living in Paradise. My friend Dennis and I decided to have   Bantayan Island instead of Isla Gigantes in Carles, we have little idea about getting in Bantayan via Estancia, Iloilo, after our Panay Island visit we headed to Estancia and stay for an overnight because we don’t know if the route is  still working    with  pump boat crossing to Bantayan Island .
