We further drove north to reach the PATAPAT VIADUCT, around 13 km from Maira-ira. This is the longest viaduct in the country, and is attached to a mountain wall. You will have left Ilocandia when you reach its other end for it welcomes you to Appari, the northernmost tip of the Luzon island
Day 3 of our Ilocos adventure trip! We were early birds as we leave Laoag and took to the road again.We drove for about an hour and finally reach our first stop – CAPE BOJEADOR LIGHTHOUSE in Burgos, Ilocos Norte.
From the main highway turn right when you reach the lighthouse sign on the road. Then follow the winding road up to reach this tower, there is no jeepney that ply the route, you’re best bet is to flag a tricycle from the main highway and ask to be taken up if you are commuting.
It's the second day of our Ilocos adventure, we started early and bid temporary farewell to Vigan. Our first stop is the BALUARTE ZOO, the open-to-the-public zoo of Mr Chavit Singson, a favorite tourist attraction in Ilocos Sur especially among families & barkadas. There you'll see his various collections of animals like the tigers, lion, orangutans, armadillos, peacocks, mountain goats and lots more! The kids will definitely love the looming dinosaur figure welcoming you to Baluarte zoo. And the best thing is Baluarte has no entrance fee!
Welcome to Baluarte Zoo folks!
