Our flight from Manila arrived in Laoag past 9PM. We decided to stay the night in Laoag’s Isabel Suites and head straight to Pagudpud the next day. In a not so steep price, the hotel offers a nice comfortable room.
To get to Pagudpud, we boarded a non-airconditioned bus in the bus terminal at the back of the Provincial Capitol. The trip took approximately 4 hours. The bus will drop you off in right in front of Pagudpud’s public market. There, we met our tour guide, Kuya Angel. We dropped our bags at Jun & Carol’s, had our lunch at Papa Nards’ then immediately started the “South Tour”.
Jun and Carol’s Beach Resort
This resort offers a good room for a reasonable price. We got the attic room which I only recommend if you don’t have elderly/child companions. The stairs are not child/elderly-friendly. Our room can easily accommodate 4 persons.
Pagudpud South Tour
At PHP 600 per person, the South Tour will take you to the tourist sports in southern Pagudpud and the nearby towns of Burgos and Bangui. The South Tour includes the following stops:
- Pagudpud Town Welcome Sign
- Bangui Windmills
- Kapurpurawan Rock Formation
- Cape Bojeador Lighthouse
If you want to do visit some other place, like Kangkang Windmill Cafe or try the local version of empanada, don’t hesitate to ask your guide. Kangkang’s buko shake is the best I ever tasted and the empanada is a must-try.
After a long day, we headed back to the resort to be greeted by this view:
I decided to just put all the food pics together to recap what we had for that day:
