____________
P3,536.00 Day 4

TOTAL: P11,636.00 ( for 2 pax) so roughly 6K per person, for 4D/3N Laoag-Pagudpud-Vigan Expenses / Costs
**NOTE: Airfare not included in my expenses/cost list above

This may not be an ideal budget for travelers on a tight budget but you can spend less than this if you will stay in hostels or  transient houses, spend less on your souvenirs and food.

~~Watch out for their airline seat sale to avail of discounts or if you are really on a tight budget you can ride a bus from Cubao to Laoag if you can endure the 8 -9 hrs . travel. Air flight will take only 1 hour or so.

For me, all money spent are worth it naman because we 've been to a lot of places.

  10. Hi Karen.. we didn't hire any tourist guides while we are there but you can ask don sa airport kugn mag peplane kayo tanong kayo sa information kasi dati tinanong ako kung gusto ko hire ng sasakyan eh... our tricycle driver that we hired na lang served our guides but I didn't get their numbers kasi madami sila don na nakapila naman. Enjoy Ilocos , for sure you'll have blast.. wag lang pag tag-ulan d kayo mag-eenjoy.
