Travel Question: Angeles to Vigan
Koi : hi,
i will be in Angeles in July 17, 09 and plan to go to Vigan from there. i don’t want to spent time in Angeles so i will take the bus to Baguio or San Fernando to stay overnight. i’m not sure which city is a better option to get to Vigan. this is my first time in phillippines and i’m from Thailand.
Thanks for any reply.
Ryan: Hi Koi,
Head out to San Fernando, La Union instead- I think that is the closer and better option of going to Vigan. The hotels in San Fernando are cheaper- but I would recommend probably some of the surf spots in San Juan, a little further north from San Fernando – you got a better beach and the area is more relaxed than that of San Fernando. From the main highway of San Juan, you can flag buses going to Laoag (ask first if the bus stops in Vigan) or Vigan. But yeah, good decision not to spend the night in Angeles. I think you will love Vigan – check out my Ilocos Sur article to see what to check out in and around Vigan.
