DAY1 - Part2: Laoag-Pagudpud-Vigan Tour: Laoag City to Batac

DAY 1: (April 30, 2013- Tuesday)
Airport, Hotel, Marcos Mausoleum/Museum, Batac Church, Paoay Church, Paoay Lake, Sand Dunes, Fort Ilocandia, back to Laoag City, Hotel
~~
After arriving at Laoag International Airport at noon time and checking in at Texicano Hotel, we had late lunch at Jollibee. Afterwards, we asked the tricycle driver to dropped us at the mini-bus terminal going to Batac.

Our journey begins
The mini-bus has no aircon and fare is P50.00 for 2. I told the driver to drop us off near Marcos Mausoleum/Museum and it was around 3:00 pm when we arrived there. It was around 30-min. ride from Laoag City to Batac.

We entered the air-conditioned Marcos Mausoleum where former President Ferdinand Marcos' body is there. Sorry, but I believe it was just a wax figure.  NO PICTURE-TAKING is allowed and you can't stay for long.

I just had my picture taken at the outside the mausoleum instead.marcos4

Unfortunately, it was Tuesday when we are there so Marcos Museum/ Ferdinand E. Marcos Presidential Center is CLOSED so we just took some photos around the area.
