I’ve been toIlocos Sur countless times but it occurred to me that I don’t have decent pictures of the province at all. Consider this a delayed entry. XD
I always look forward to this in every trip:

It’s amazing how they were able to preserve these infrastructure while keeping up with the modern times. Restaurants such as Max’s and even Mang Inasal have façades that blend well with the rest of the houses down the street.

It was also my first time to go up the San Agustin Bell Tower in Bantay.

We also got to try this resto named La Preciosa. Value for money it is!
