Travel Ilocandia Transient House
Laoag International Airport
Laoag Airport has got to be one of my favorite airports in the country. It is full of character true to the Ilocano culture and heritage. The boarding area was a museum-in-waiting. Instead of boring yourself for an hour or so waiting to fly, you are provided with nice-to-know information about the must-see destinations-- a bit of a social studies brief. I like it! Haven't seen such beautifully executed local showcase that's so on point.
Places Only in Ilocos
Malacanang Ti Amianan
The rest of the country can learn a lot from the tourism chops of Ilocos. Malacanang of the North is one accurate example-- well-maintained, tastefully designed heritage site with eloquently trained young tour guides. It was a pleasant experience despite the scorching heat of the sun. I wanted to take home some of the pieces of furniture or copy the interior.
