My trip in Ilocos Sur is worth it. It is one of the most enjoyable trip I had been despite the tiredness from travel, and with small amount of sleep. When we got there, I grabbed the opportunity to stroll.

At the picture above, I am at the city proper of Vigan City, the capital of Ilocos Sur. With the life-sized characters of the province, it is like a souvenir that I have been to the place.

Now, let me take you to places where I strolled.

Souvenirs

I first visited the place where there are souvenirs being sold. Many souvenirs looks like tribal. You can see them from my back.

In Baluarte, there's a gallery at the hilltop where you can see the preserved bodies of different animals. The owner of the facility, Chavit Singson, is a fan of animals. Maybe, he is a hunter too.

How about a tiger? It is in a cage as it can kill people.


Cottage in the Hilltop

At the top of the hill where Baluarte Gallery is located, you can see the cottages nearby. There, you can overlook at the lowlands and the sea.

Calle Crisologo is where you can find the old and ancestral houses. They were preserved by UNESCO as heritage site. There you can ride the horse that will take you on the tour to Calle Crisologo and other streets in the city.
