Start strolling at Crisologo Street. This major attraction of Vigan is its
mestizo district which is filled with Spanish-style houses that evoke a

bygone era when its people lived prosperously because of the ManilaAcapulco maritime trade.
Though a trip to Calle Crisologo is enjoyable during the day especially
because of the opportunity to shop for Vigans best products (antiques,
abel woven products, bags, basi wine, burnay and dimili products,
chicharon, jewelry, sweets, Vigan vinegar and woodcrafts) in the
inobtrusive shops located in the ground floor of some of the grand
houses, a walk through it is magical at night.

Vigan River Cruise

9am

So, I headed out to my second destination via one of these tricycles. I


left Baluarte at 10:28 am and arrived at the site of "Vigan River Cruise"
10:39 am. Fare from Baluarte to Mestizo River, the site of the river
cruise, is Php 60. Ticket in the boat ride of Vigan River Cruise costs Php
100. Boats used in the cruise are like those small wooden fishing
vessels used by many ordinary Filipino fishermen called "bangka" in
Tagalog. Each boat has outriggers for stability and safety of riders,
which is good for rough river. But don't worry, the Mestizo River is calm
all the way.
Vigan Heritage Village

1:30pm

After enjoying the cruise which finished at 11:23 am, it's time to get to
the "Vigan Heritage Village", the only colonial town in the Philippines
and for which Vigan is known. I had made an arrangement with the
tricycle I'd ridden from Baluarte to wait for me. Actually, he offered the
service to the Heritage Village. I just accepted it for the reason of time
management.
At around 1:30 pm, I thought it's time to go to bus terminal to be in Laoag before
dusk. So, I just took a tricycle for Php 15 to reach terminal of Partas Bus. You just plug
down a motorized tricycle and ask the driver to take you to Partas which is near. Wait
for bus with "Laoag" sign.
