When Jeepney crossing Marcos Bridge into downtown, I felt backing to lively Spanish community. Kalesa service here is for local people, not just an activity for tourists. Buildings, shops and government offices in Laoag City still keeping colonial atmosphere like hundred years ago.

City is compact. Historic places in Laoag are located within city centre. You can explore City Hall, St. Williams Cathedral, Laoag Sinking Tower and Tobacco Monopoly Monument on foot.

Outside Laoag City provides natural attractions such as beaches, waterfalls, forests and sand dunes.
