I've been dreaming for a long time to see windmills and when I heard that there are windmills up north in Laoag, I told myself that I will go there someday.

Finally, one day while browsing online, I decided I need to go there. There's a P499 seat sale from Cebu Pacific last February and so I grabbed it. The price looks so cheap but in the end I paid P2,500+ for each person and that includes taxes, fuel charges, online management fee, luggage and other taxes.. yay!

Our Cebu Pacific flight was last April 30, 2013  am but it was delayed for just 30 minutes. Arrived at Laoag International Airport noon already.

I saw the FREE SHUTTLE BUS ride signage upon entering the airport so I signed up at the counter. shuttlebusHop we go inside the spacious red bus courtesy of Imee Marcos. Thumbs up for that! The bus driver will drop any guest at their hotels so it is so convenient. If you fail to ride the shuttle bus, you can hire a tricycle to take you do downtown Laoag.


Free shuttle bus ride at Laoag International Airport Laoag CityTravel time takes from Laoag Airport to downtown Laoag (Centro) is around 30 mins. or so. The bus driver dropped us off near the corner of TEXICANO HOTEL.

Actually, I'm not decided yet where to stay when we arrived in Laoag so I just chose Texicano that I saw in my list of hotels that I have printed. Texicano Hotel, Laoag CityWe checked in around 1 pm and rested for a while. Went out and took a tricycle to the nearest Jollibee to have a late lunch. Tricycles are everywhere and it costs P11.00 per person. You'll very rarely see jeepneys, and I have never seen any taxi.
