    We had experience availing of a tour package to the Ilocos region particularly Vigan and Ilocos Norte. Things to see are the windmills of Bagui, the famed lighthouse, kapurpurawan natural rock formation, pagudpud beach and the MalacaƱang of the north as a legacy of President Marcos. The tour is complete with the van, accommodation and a tour guide.

    The native foods may not be very popular but I love the bagnet which is pork belly that is fried with crisp skin. It is so good to eat with a vegetable dish like pinakbet or the counterpart in Ilocos. For a snack food, the Empanada is a pie with grated raw papaya, egg, sausage and flavoring. When fried to crispiness, it is best eaten with vinegar as the dip.
