Maira-ira Beach, popularly known as Blue Lagoon in Pagudpud

Vigan Heritage Town


Ultimate Culinary and Heritage Tour of Pagudpud and Vigan

the ABCs of Ilocandia: Antiques, Bagnet and Churches.  


Tour Description:
In Ilocos, nature and history is intertwined but at Ultimate Philippines, we think this is combo best savored with bagnet and beer so we’re exploring this provincial belle  – our style. Let’s journey onto the Northern plains and take a time-warp through the colonial city of Vigan. We’ll walk through cobbles,  munching our way through  the town’s traditional street fare, from yummy empanadas to tasty longganisas.. More historical bites as we take a peek at the life of ex-strongman Ferdinand Marcos in the town of Batac and admire two masterpieces of Ilocos’ unique  ‘earthquake baroque’ architecture- Paoay and Santa Maria Church. Capping off, we’ll surf through the waves of Maira-ira beach in Pagudpud ending our journey in time to join the revelries of the annual fiesta in Vigan.
