Travel Question: Angeles to Vigan

Posted by on Sep 11th, 2009
Filed Under: Questions


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.

    Hi pktan! you’ve posted your question last sept 11 only but you were here since july 19. I don’t know if you’re in Vigan already…just in case…

    if you don’t wanna stay in angeles you can stay in clark maingate there are a lot of hotels there nice, safe, and cheap and it’s 5mins away from Dau bus terminal. from there you can take bus going to Laoag/Vigan.
