Ilocandia Tour

The recently concluded APEC and its accompanying holidays made room for a quick getaway to the northern provinces of the Philippines. We said hello to both Ilocos Norte and Ilocos Sur.

I’ve been here once when my friend’s father asked us to come during his campaign period. But that was way back in 2007. Now, it will be a more comprehensive trip of the North.
