    Laoag to Vigan

    by myspices Updated Oct 25, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    the run-down Partas bus station.

    From Laoag Partas station, we caught an A/C Partas bus to Vigan at 2.50pm. In order to get Laoag Partas station (make sure you state correctly that you want to go to the Partas station as there are many bus stations located at different areas), take a tricyle there. As usual, you are not able to get your tickets in advance. Be there early as, if the bus is full, it will leave before the designated time. Journey to Vigan takes about 1.5hours and fare is 121pesos.

    it was Nov. 29, 2012 when we landed in Pagudpud for our tour. Actually the tour is Pagudpud-Laoag-Vigan. Anyways, as we landen in the town proper, Kuya Joseph accommodate us. He is our Driver in the whole tour. He brings us to the beautiful places in Laoag, vigan and Pagudpud. He also shows us were to buy some pasalubongs in cheaper price. Kuya Joseph is so nice, we already treated him as a very close friend. He is always with us, even in our dinner and Lunch. We felt so safe even he drives fast, actually we fell to sleep we didn't notice that were already in our homestay. One thing that we will never forget about kuya joseph is he welcome us in there house in Pagudpud. He cooked for us. :)

    From Paoay to Laoag

    by myspices Written Oct 25, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    ride the tricycle to get from Paoay to Laoag

    After your visit to Paoay Church and the Malacanang of the North located in Paoay, you can move from Paoay to Laoag (to catch a bus to Vigan) using the tricycle via the Gilbert Bridge. Gilbert bridge which is built across the Laoag river connects Batac (14km) and Paoay (16km) to Laoag.

    Negotiate with the tricycle for package deal.

  • Florida Sleeper bus from Laoag to Manila

    by tinkleskadingkadoo Written Mar 8, 2012

    2 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    We opted to take the so-called Sleeper bus of Florida for we have our 5yr old daughter with us. To our dismay, The Sleeper was just a seat that could be reclined to a lying position. I think its even narrower than the regular seat. My daughter and I had to share a seat and it was worse than just riding in the regular bus. It was uncomfy. At least in the regular non-sleeper bus, we were comfy to share a seat and even sleep!
    Not worth it!

    Bus or air travel in PI

    by bulldogtwo Written Oct 16, 2009

    Keeping in mind the holidays and how busy transportation can get in the Philippines during the holidays, I would avoid travel over the Christmas/New Years breaks. As far as travel goes, travel in PI also takes a long time to get from one place to the other, if you can go by air you usually save a whole day. From Olongapo City to Laoag will take a whole day by bus, can your children handle that time without getting too bored? I do believe that there is an airport in that city. Travel by bus is adecent way to see the country but it can get tedious as well. I would advise taking a "delux" bus, spend the extra money and be comfortable, or go by air.
    Good luck

    Riding a Tricycle in Laoag

    by Benamags Updated Nov 15, 2010

    Trike drivers in Laoag can easily tell that you are a tourist. Even though we know the fare is P8.00 per head, they charged us P10.00 each. After our second ride, we brought out all our coins so we can pay the exact amount. End of overcharging! :)

  • MANONG JOSEPH ACIO IS THE MAN!

    by dollyarroyo Written Jan 21, 2013

    we're a group of photographer hobbyists who had less than 3 days in ilocos. day 1 was already devoted to ilocos sur. day 2, we wanted to capture the iconic places ilocos norte offers. but we were warned that vigan to pagudpud, would be around 5 hours... we were having second thoughts mainly because we had a flight to catch on the second day.

    our second thoughts simply banished, mainly because of manong joseph. i found his contact number here in VT. he made the entire day possible, in fact, with still so much time to spare in the airport.

    vigan to kapurpurawan is actually less than 2 hours
    bangui windmills to laoag airport is less than 1.5 hours

    so... if you feel like you need someone who will bring you to wow places up north... and be relaxed in the van while being drove around... then, take a risk and contact manong joseph. HE IS THE MAN.

  • Mang Joseph is really the man!!

    by nixzkie Written Sep 1, 2013

    If you're planning for a trip to Ilocos (Loaog, Pagudpod, Vigan) then mang Joseph is the right person to contact.

    My other half and I went to Ilocos last August. As a part of our plan, I had to go through a lot of internet surfing until I came across to a this website where a very positive post about mang Joseph were posted. So I thought I'd give it try and contacted mang Joseph.

    Then I realised mang Joseph is a very good person. He knows exactly where to bring you to experience the inner beauty of Ilocos.

    Schedule:
    3 nights and 2 whole days...

    We flew from manila to laoag. The only flight available is at night so we arrived at around 8pm in Laoag. Mang Joseph fetched us from the airport in Laoag then brought us to their house to spend the night.

    The next day was actually our first tour so we went to Pagudpud (kabigan falls, patapat bridge, blue lagoon, hannah's, saud beach).

    2nd day was Laoag tour and other Ilocos norte tour. After lunch we went to Ilocos sur tour (vigan).

    Mang Joseph knows how to schedule your days and know exactly where to bring you in Ilocos, he's a very honest and funny man. When we were on tour we were just like friends. We had a lot of fun during tour with mang Joseph.

    Tricycle or Kalesa

    by myspices Updated Oct 25, 2006
    ride the kalesa - it's more fun!

    To move around Laoag, hop on to the tricycle or the kalesa - many of them on the roads. It is convenient and cheap. You can "flag" them down anytime, anywhere .... Short journey : 7.5pesos per ride per person.

    After lounging at the park, we rode a calesa going to the market for Php 26. It was my first time riding a calesa so I was completely thrilled!
