The Beauty of Vintage An Ilocos, PH Adventure


Referred to as the Ilocos Region mainly because it is home to a majority of Ilokanos and the seat of the Ilokano culture, heritage, and language. Ilocos means "people in the river", very much like the Tagalog's "taga-ilog" which reffered to the early settler's living along riverbanks. It is located on the Northwestern coast of Luzon island, it includes four provinces: Ilocos Norte, Ilocos Sur, La Union, and Pangasinan.

Few photos taken inside the Malacañang ti Amianan located in Paoay, Ilocos Norte. It is a presidential museum because it was the residence of the family of Ferdinand Marcos when he was still the president of the Philippines. This grand mansion was a gift from the first lady, Imelda Marcos to her husband's 60th birthday.

Relaxing view when you go to the balcony. Nice breeze and ambiance.

Well-preserved furnitures that contributed to a more historical look of the house.

Intricate interior design that really symbolizes how elegant Marcoses are.


Another tourist attraction that is well-known in Ilocos Norte is this windmill farm found in Bangui Bay that faces South China Sea.
