Picture Feature(d): Backpacker Holidays

Excerpt from Travel & Leisure, Bakasyon April 2012 Issue by Monica De Leon

Ilocos  with sidetrip to Claveria
The itinerary: Most visitors choose to go to Vigan for the “cultural experience”, mostly a chance to explore well-preserved Spanish colonial architecture and heritage streets. Paoay offers 4×4 rides and sand dune surfing. Go all the way to Burgos where you’ll find windmills and then spend the night in Maira-ira past Saud Beach in Pagudpud.

Cap the trip with a sidetrip to Claveria. The seafood is fresh and cheap at the Taggat Lagoon since it’s located within a fishing town. Check out the falls in Claveria.

Filling stations: Food is a strong draw — the empanada in Batac is even better than that in Vigan; eat tinubong in Magsingal; try the sinanglaw and bagnet in Vigan; and don’t miss the biscocho in Pasuquin.”
