Day 2: Vigan Tour

After our lunch at CafĂ© Uno, we started our tour in Pagburnayan Jar Making. If you are going to Vigan do not miss this place, it’s really nice to see how they mold and shape the clay into jars, vase and pots. It looks so easy but I know that it’s difficult.

ang bilis lang niya ginawa

Crisologo Museum: donations only

Syquia Mansion: P20 entrance fee, another place that you should not miss is Syquia Mansion. Dami ko natutunan dito, if there’s no tour guide I will not appreciate it because I’m just seeing old furniture and pictures. But because there’s a tour guide, I understand and appreciate each furniture and house details, things that I have not learned in History class.

Vigan Loam Weaving – I’ve seen this before in Baguio.

Baluarte no entrance fee, I’ll make a separate post for this.

Bantay Church and Bell Tower: donations only

ganda mag pre-nup dito

And our last stop Calle Crisologo, this is included in my top ten places that I want to visit. You can ride kalesa, P50 for one round (isang ikot lang). We’re here past 4PM and hinintay talaga naming gumabi para sa picture. Hehe!

End of our tour
