La Union and Ilocos Norte in Region 1 still offers the adventurer, foodie and heritage fanatic old but reliable staples that make these two provinces perfect places to travel this summer.
La Union in the Ilocos Region is one of those provinces that will make you think of what to do and visit. One would think that its all tobacco and garlic and onions and Agoo Basilica. But its more than that.
Interesting (or tacky?) decors doesn’t distract you from having this delicious halo-halo in Halo-Halo de Iloko, up in the city of San Fernando, La Union.
Both are temples, a Catholic church, and the other a Taoist (Chinese) temple. Both are equally interesting not only in terms of architecture but also the devotions done by their respective faithful.
Looking farther along the stretch of beach, there are several more men and mound. Its really an industry here with the natural products probably making their way to construction sites in the city or beyond.
The costs of progress.
