I have always wanted to visit Vigan, Ilocos Sur for a long long time! Fortunately, I only got the chance during my trip to the Philippines in 2016.
Vigan is somehow the remains of the Spanish era as you could see particularly in Calle Crisologo.
I like the view of this Asian/Spanish Architecture more than the modern ones, tbh. I love the feeling of going back to old times where all the houses/buildings are made of mixed concrete and wood, the capiz windows, the big front doors, and the kalesa ( the two wheeled-horse drawn carriage).
Calle Crisologo at night is more amazing! We had dinner along the street with their specialty, I had langgonisa (sausage) and chicharon bulaklak ( fried pork intestine) dipped in vinegar with salt, onion, and pepper and bagnet (deep-fried pork) for dinner and later we had a few alcoholic drinks in a nearby restaurant with karaoke.
More so, aside from this spectacular view, if you go a little bit further away, you will see a huge line of street food stalls where you can enjoy affordable snacks while wandering along the park.
Here are some photos I have snapped during the trip.
