Pagudpud Ilocos Norte

Pagudpud is a great place to visit if you're looking for the relatively unspoiled charms of the Philippines.

Resorts have popped up along the white shores of Saud and Burayoc and are always happy to accommodate. Of course, there are other places to explore. Visit Patapat, a scenic viaduct that hugs the coast and mountains. Refresh yourself in the springs of Paraiso ni San Anton. Hike into Kabigan Falls. Or just wander around. The tropical climate soothes and lulls. You'll find the people — our friends and family — most hospitable.

San Roque Dam: A great destination?

Just recently we visited the San Roque Dam in San Manuel, Pangasinan. A glimpse of the wonderful engineering of man to block huge amount of water that flows through the Agno river is amazing. If haven't been there yet, it's time to plan to go.
