Vigan2017: A Travel for two
In celebration of our 9th anniversary, Luis and I decided to go to Vigan. It is our dream place since we started working and when he arrived in the Philippines last February we decided to pursue our plan.
Finally, after 9 long years a LEGIT couple travel!
What to ride:
We’re staying in Pasay City so we opted to take the nearest Partas Terminal. We booked our ticket two days before our date of departure. We took the 10:00PM trip of Friday. They will let you choose what class you’re going to take: Deluxe, First Class or Ordinary. In our case, I told the girl to book us a Deluxe class but when we arrived on the day of our departure we were booked in the First Class Bus. Anyway, we were charged PHP700-800 each. We travelled 9-10hours to reach Vigan.
Tip: Bring thick jacket with you! The aircon is freaking cold!
Where to stay:

After several internet research about good hotels in Vigan, we chose to book at Hotel Ni Among. We booked the Small Casita for two that costs PHP1,512/night. It has an aircon, cable TV, CR, pillow and blankets. This comes with FREE breakfast plus (the thing we enjoyed) FREE access to their swimming pool!
I suggest you book at least 3 days before the date of arrival. You can contact them through these mobile numbers: 0917-5298107/0917-5684662. They answer your texts/calls right away, I swear!
Means of Transportation:
Calesa and Tricycle. You can choose between the two. Of course, it was fun riding the Calesa (hello for pete’s sake you’re in Vigan) On the other hand, tricycle driver charged PHP10.00 each person but when after 6PM they charged more than PHP10.00, it depends to them.
