Incredible Ilocos Norte with Family

No comments

It’s most of us first time in Ilocos Norte. We had a four day road trip with my family and Louie’s family in Ilocos region. It’s beautiful though it’s extremely hot. Because We are Ilocanos and we speak their local dialect We felt at home instantly.
We spent most of the days in Ilocos Norte where the windmill is. Ilocos Norte was not so touristy as Ilocos Sur. Not yet.

We rented a Bungalow House for 2 nights so we can cook there as we are around 15 people in total.

5. Museo Ilocos Norte

This museum is situated in an old mansion in Laoag City, the capital of Ilocos Norte. You can find some traditional hlusehold things and experience how they live the olden days. It quite fun especially for the kids who had it all these days. Before there are no electricity so people use manual fan, manual stove, everything was more more difficult and uncomfortable. Best way to teach kids gratitude.
