A Touch of Spanish Influence: Vigan, Ilocos Sur
Before we dive right into some of the beaches, beach towns, and more rural places let’s cover a very nice, hidden getaway that still has a town and touch of Spanish and of course Filipino culture to enjoy.
Vigan, Ilocos Sur is a wonderful place to visit if you enjoy discovering local heritage, landmarks, beautiful churches, and of course beaches only within 30 minutes to an hour away.
A part of Southern Luzon it’s by no means the closest to the major cities or embassy’s, but if you’re looking to get away and experience something new this is a great place to start.
Nonetheless, the people here are extremely friendly, helpful towards tourists, and the cafes are absolutely delightful. If you’re more of a “social butterfly” this is a fantastic place to start! If you’re into bars and a big night scene this definitely isn’t the place for you, as this is a much more relaxed or slow pace place to visit or stay.
The women here are also extremely friendly, and because tourists don’t frequent this spot so often it makes you more of a “hidden gem”.
Calbiga, Samar (Langan Gobingob Caves)
Are you the adventure type? Samar is a beautiful province with undoubtedly some of the most beautiful, kind, and loving women in all of Philippines.
Samar all-around is full of adventures, mountains, opportunities to hike, camp, and more. Nearly every small town that you’ll come across here is accommodating to tourists, and in more instances than not the people you meet will at minimum be able to speak at least basic English.
While speaking a little Tagalog can help you, even if it’s your first visit you should do well. One of the most popular attractions in Samar is the Laguna Gobingob Caves, which are found in the city of Calbiga.
The caves here are tons of fun, you can go rafting, adventuring in the mountains, and more. Almost all of the local towns have some sort of shops, and if not cafes they have “sari-sari” stores which are convenience stores.
Even so, sitting outside of a “sari-sari” store and having a few cold ones or eating your meal is commonplace, and is a great way to meet new people including beautiful, single women that would be delighted to meet you and show you around.
