Vigan is the capital city of Ilocos Sur. Probably one of the most iconic places in the Philippines wherein the culture and heritage of Filipinos still live. Consists of old houses, brick walls and calesas during spanish colony, still preserved at its best. It is one of the 21 finalists of the new 7 wonders cities.
This city is also awarded as a UNESCO heritage site.
I love taking photos of myself in a dramatic way. Hahaha. Not that i’m a selfie addict, i just love making wallpaper kind of photos starring “MYSELF”.
I love backgrounds, wind, sky, rain, ocean, vivid and vibrant colors, high contrast etc. I’ll post my photos here and some stories behind it! Spread Love!!!
Ilocos Norte is situated at the northern part of Luzon, Philippines. Easily accessible by plane or buses. Famous for its beaches, ancestral homes and sand dunes.
I’m always a fan of great architectures and as adventurous as i am, i suddenly became so ecstatic that finally i can be a Tomb Raider for once.
Planning occurs when i’m browsing the Cebu Pacific Website and thinking where to travel next. Then i saw Vietnam and realized that yeah, i haven’t gone to that part of Asia yet. And luckily, it’s seat sale time, so i talked to my companion if he wanted to go with me and upon saying yes, i immediately booked a round trip tickets to Ho Chih Min City, Vietnam.
My first plan is to cover HCM city only, then through browsing some blogs and forums, i decided to include Cambodia, Siem Reap in particular. A neighboring country of Vietnam. The mystic aura of Siem Reap temples is the one that triggers me to redo our itinerary. Another plus factor might be for the fact that it was also Tomb Raider’s filming location. At least i’ll get to step on the land in which Angelina Jolie once step upon.

This itinerary was made at the last quarter of 2008. The year, i made an amazing race like tour. Absolutely tiring but worth it! I don’t recommend this kind of itinerary, i must admit that it was one of the most exhausting trips i’ve ever made BUT i just want everyone to know that it’s possible and can be done. With a careful planning and research, this trip can be a success. O well… As the saying goes TIME is GOLD… 😄😄😄
