Exploring Vigan In Less Than Twenty Four Hours (1st Post in A Series)

Yep, you could have FUN in a short span of time in VIGAN where time freezes back to where horse-drawn carriages were the major means of transportation and cobblestones adorned floors. Last week a friend brought me there and sure thing I had a blast re-exploring The City of Vigan, a world heritage site where Spanish colonial architecture has been preserved.

  1. One of my dream destinations - Vigan! So many have said that travelling to Vigan is like being transported back in time. Wish I could get to see the place.
