Not all places in the Philippines has an organized local feight transport system. Most would use courier services, but unknown to many, most major bus companies also have freight services. Best to use when freight is perishable, and which all courier companies do not accept these. Information in picture includes type of shipment, weight, kind, etc. Call them to get more details.
Number posted below is Partas' Vigan bus company freight services telephone number.
The calesa is a horse-drawn carriage and the much preferred mode of transportation in Vigan for newcomers and tourists.
The flag-down rate for services is P150.00/per hour, my friend, not per trip. Before taking a calesa tour, if you can, identify the places you wanted to see. Then discuss the route with the calesa driver. This way you see the sites that you only wanted to see. Anticipate length of time in each place to save time and money. If one just let things go without sense of time and logistics, your calesa tour can take 5 hours easily! That's P750! Poor horse!
And hey, if touring as a group, the maximum capacity of a calesa is only 4 medium sized adults (each not exceeding 120lbs) Pity the horse! hehe
i noticed that most locals talk as if they were arguing about something, the manner they say their words and put emphasis on it is actually their normal way of talking.
Dont worry, thery arent mad at you, they are actually just making a conversation...
Every first week of May, Vigan celebrates the Viva Vigan Festival. Activities include calesa parade, binatbatan street dancing, exhibits, trade/food fairs, carabao painting contest and a lot more (so many i forgot to take down notes hehe). It showcases Vigan's rich culture.
