Sa mga tao jan na ginagamit pati pangalan ng Santiago, tumahimik na kayo. Nakakahiya dadayo pa kayo sa ibang lugar para ikalat baho ng ugali ninyo and please wag niyo iniaakibat ang Santiago sa Isabela dahil matagal na kaming independent, first level administrative division kame. Kung gusto niyong isadlak sa kahihiyan probinsya niyo wag niyo kami idadamay. Nakakatawa kayo mga taga Cauayan, hindi na kayo nakuntento sa panglalait sa Santiago at Tuguegarao pati sa ibang lugar kinakalat niyo ugali niyo. Wag niyo pasingawin ang pagiging amoy Cauayeño niyo. Nakakahiya kayo.

Huwag niyo naman po sana idamay ang Santiago sa pag aaway-away ninyo. Sa totoo lang po problema talaga dito sa Region 2 yan na pataasan ng ihi lalo na pagdating sa usapang pang syudad. FYI po pati pokami dito sa Santiago ay laging binu bully ng ibang city lalo na ng Cauayan. Nababasa niyo naman po siguro sa SSC kung sino ang mapag mataas at lage nangungumpara. We don't have anything against Laoag City. Dinadamay lang po ang syudad namin para pati image namin masira. You can check our page sa Facebook at makikita niyo po na may mga taga Cauayan na nam babash sa city namin. https://m.facebook.com/SantiagoCityPhil.3311

Kaya kung nasaan man ang estado at ranking ng ating mga probinsya ay ipagpasalamat at ipagmalaki ngunit wag ipagyabang sa ibang nakakababa o pasibol pa lang ang pag-unlad. Encourage one another and make peace to every town, barangay and other neighboring provinces. Uunlad 'di lang ang inyong bayan kung 'di ikaw mismo dahil alam mo kung paano hawakan ang natatamasang "tagumpay".

San Fernando City, La Union envisioned to be the Premier Capital City of the North BCDA plans bid for PPFZ dev’t By Louella D. Desiderio (The Philippine Star) | Updated October 28, 2013 - 12:00am MANILA, Philippines - The Bases Conversion and Development Authority (BCDA) is planning to bid out the construction contract for the development of the Poro Point Freeport Zone (PPFZ) in La Union early next year, an official said. “We’re going to bid out the first phase of development for Poro Point...in the first quarter of next year,” BCDA president and chief executive officer Arnel Paciano Casanova told reporters in a chance interview. He said the state-run firm can plan for the bidding of the construction contract after it approved the master development plan for the 146-hectare PPFZ submitted by Palafox Associates on Oct. 16. The master plan seeks to develop PPFZ to attract investors to locate in the area. The plan likewise includes the improvement and upgrade of the San Fernando airport and development of a terminal shopping mall. The development of the San Fernando Airport will be offered for bidding under the government’s Public-Private Partnership (PPP) program. The PPP Center has approved funding support worth P69 million for the conduct of the feasibility study for the project. “The PPP Center is already in the process of engaging the transaction adviser so our target for the Poro Point airport development is middle of 2015,” Casanova said. The development of the Poro Point San Fernando Airport is envisioned to establish an airport that can accommodate direct international flights and serve as a gateway to La Union, Baguio and other tourist spots in the region. The airport is also seen to provide a link and complement operations of the Clark International Airport. As for the terminal shopping mall, the BCDA is looking at having one similar to Singapore’s Changi Airport, although at a smaller scale.

2nd class city ang Laoag? at first class ang Santiago at Cauayan? Mga P300M dapat ang TOTAL income ng LGU para maging First Class City. Ang 2012 TOTAL income ng Laoag ay P536M+ (Local Income= P286M+; IRA na bigay ng gobyerno= P250M+), sa Santiago TOTAL income P868M+ (Local Income= P139M+; IRA na bigay ng gobyerno= P728M+), sa Cauayan TOTAL income P437M+ (Local Income= P134M+; IRA= P303M+). Tingnan mo figures bugok, sa LAKI NG IRA nio cgurado na first class talaga kababagsakan nio kasi nga sa IRA palang lampas na ng P300M. Ang Laoag sa local income pa lang halos mka 300M na, labas pa dian ang katiting na IRA na bigay ng gobyerno. Ang Local income ng Laoag halos pinagsamang local income ng Santiago at Cauayan. Mga bugok na Isabelino, kung sa Laoag nga di kau umuubra tapos kung maka pag-claim kayo kesyo "Queen City of the North/Tiger City of the North/Emerald City of the North" blah blah blah kau. Nakakasuka talaga. Kumpara natin sa iba pang mga progresibong cities dito sa Norte ang nickname, ang Tuguegarao "Premier Ibanag City", ang Laoag "Sunshine City", ang Vigan "Heritage City", San Fernando is aiming to be the "Premier Capital City of Ilocandia by 2020", ang Dagupan "Bangus Capital"/"Melting Pot of Pangasinan", ang Baguio "Summer Capital"... may na-notice kayo mga Isabelino? ANG YAYABANG NIO! Ang mga mas progresibong siyudad sa norte na may kayang ipagyabang low key lang, di nag ke-claim ng kung ano-ano samantalang kayo nagka-mall lang kala mo kung sino ng mga ROYAL CITIES na claiming to be the best IN THE NORTH! nakakasuka talaga.. tsk!tsk!

Sila sila nga nagpapataasan ng ihi, eh! Sila ang source of entertainment ng ibang forumers kumbaga, mga utak pulburon na mga taga Isabela na ang galing mag claim ng kung anu-ano, kesyo premier city/lion city/emerald city/techno hub of the north blahblahblah, nakakasuka! Ang Tugue/Laoag/Vigan/Dagupan/Baguio di nga nag ke-claim ng mga ganong tag eh kc humble lng, pero sila garapal, hahaha. Dinadamay pa nila Tuguegarao sa mga away nila eh ang ayos nga ng Tugue thread eh. Hoy mga Isabelino, wag nio dinadawit ang Tugue/Cagayan dito, kumbaga ang Cagayan sanggang-dikit ng Ilocos Norte yan.

Ngaun palang kau nag kakaroon sa region nio, samantalang sa Region 1 matagal na silang nag e-exist at may mga nakaplanong dagdag pa sa ibat ibang locations including Laoag, Dagupan, and Urdaneta. What does that say about your region? And just so you know, yong mga Robinsons d2 sa R1 nasa mga Municipalities lang (San Nicolas/Calasiao)yet Rob seems to think our Municipalities are equally competitive.. Galing ng Region 1 noh?

At pinagmalaki talaga mga malls ah, ngaun palang kayo nagkakaroon matagal na mga yan sa ibang probinsiya. Kayo naman agraraman ti mall, hahaha. At sa laki ng probinsia at populasyon nio mga taga Isabela, dapat ang level niyo mga tipong Cebu or Davao na. Ni Pangasinan nga wala kayong binatbat eh. Tri-cities pinagmamalaki nio? Mga vovo sa Pangasinan halos lima na (pag nasali ang Lingayen, di man cia city pero sobrang progresibo na being their provincial center). Tas kung maka pag yabang kayo parang sobrang progresibo nio.. Kayo-kayo lng nagsasabi nian pero sa totoo lng pinagtatawanan kayo ng mga taga ibang probinsiya because ur suffering from delusions of grandeur. Ang Ilocos Norte nga pag kaliit-liit ng popolasyon at area pero pinapakain din kayo ng alikabok.

Tama yung nagcomment malayung malayo ang laoag sa mga city nyo sa region 2.kht sbhn u pang richest city yan in the north..sabi nyo nga db, pero naipapakita nga ba yun pag may nagpupunta? Hindi db dahil,,kulang sa gawa dyan. Unlike here in ilocos norte transparent d2.lahat ng income nakikita mu kung san ung napupuntahan..? Tsaka gaya ng sabi pa nila.tumayo man ang mga malalaking gusali pa jan kung di man sya kasing ayos ng laoag. Magmumukhang basurahan lang yan like other cities, progressive nga pero infrastructure lang ang umangat pero mga ibang sector ay napag iwanan. D2 sa laoag lahat ay tangay sa pagunlad dahil maganda ang governance at wala squatters you know..kami pinakamlaking Human development index sa region 1, di naman binubuhat ko sarili kong bangko pero wala na atang mahirap d2 sa amin..at sa buong probinsya ng ilokos norte.kung my makita kamang kubo ,tiyak silungan lang nila yun pag mainit o kaya mga kulungan lang sa mga alaga....,pero alam ko lahat na may kaya na mga tao dito..pero humble padin mga taga rito..

For your information about Laoag city, it is one of the oldest city in Northen Luzon next to Cabanatuan & Dagupan Cities. Laoag City has a very good strategic geographical location that it enjoys the access of progressive cities in the south east Asia like Taipe, Hongkong, cities in China, Seol. With the existence of the Laoag International Airport, this is a great factor for the fast development of Laoag City in terms of commercialization & urbanization. According to a very reliable source, Laoag City will become the center of Northern Metropolis to help decongest Metro Manila. Laoag City has a very vast tract of lands especially at the south of Padsan river. There are already developers that has started their investments in these areas such as housing projects. Compared to Isabela (Region 2) against Ilocos Norte - Region 1, is far better in reference to income, Ilocos Norte (Laoag City) has casinos that most foreiners are there, kaya malaki and income ng Ilocos Norte - billions na daw sabi ni Gov. Imee Marcos. Besides another development is being initiated and already approved by the city council of Laoag is the 100-Hectare reclamation project along the Padsan river. Developers include Megaworld, SM Holdings, Robinsons Land, Ayala Land Realty and more. They will make this 100 hectares of land as a goverment and commercial cernter if not a replica of Ortigas Center or the Ayala Center. Iba pa ang on going na development San Nicolas, Ilocos Norte adjacent to Laoag city which the Valdez Center which will will be a mini Oritigas center (20-hectare) Kaya ang masabi ko mayroon bang ganitong plano sa Isabela? Top 10 Priority pa ng DPWH ang mg infrastructure projects sa Ilocos Norte. Malaki ang maitulong ng International Airport at Ship port sa isang sa isang lugar when it comes to development. Yong International Ship port is nas Curimao, Ilocos Norte. I think Santiago City has no local airport. So Santiago has is very far behind to Laoag City in terms of urban development internationally.

Are you wearing your veil over your face? It sondus like your comb was designed to be worn over the face and then flipped back over the comb later. However, without actually seeing your comb and veil I can't actually tell. If there is an awkward seam when you flip it over, then it isn't supposed to go that way. If there isn't a seam it's probably fine. Bring it up with your hairstylist when you get your practice updo and she can play with ways to make it sit properly.

people who makes negative comments about someone or something are unhappy and jealous people. what makes Laoag a beautiful place because it feels like home always, the people of Ilocos Norte are superb,hospitable, kind and hardworking decent people. What makes Laoag it is today is because of the citizens of Ilocos Norte join together and have harmony with their elected officials on how to make it livable, lovable place to live and visit. I plan to retire here someday. Laoag is not just a city , it is the CITY you will ever love. Thanks to all the citizens of Laoag and Ilocos Norte for making and still in the making of a beautiful city. Laoag has its unique charm, it is what makes it special. Thank you so much PEOPLE, GOD BLESS ILOCOS NORTE, PHILIPPINES, MABUHAY!

I just found this webpage today. I enjoyed reading all the comments. I grew up in Laoag. My American husband and I practically visit every year to visit our bahay kubo in Pasuquin [in Sexy Beach]. My husband loves coming home because it is such a peaceful,very clean city, people are friendly and gin and red horse beer/san miguel or any domestic-made items come cheap($$). The major industry is banking - almost every corner is a bank! You can go to most of these banks and use your credit/debit card to withdraw money. I would say most people in Laoag use cash in most of the transactions but for vacationers like me, I use the bank or go to one of the money changers [it is safe] that are scattered around the central market. I love Wednesdays and Sundays because it is market day-love the orchids/plants etc. Everything is cheap. I do my groceries at 5-sisters and/or Johnsons to purchase everything local stores do not carry, i.e milk, butter, bacon,scoth whiskey, taco shells, etc. They will also change your dollars [not sure about other denomination/s]. Farinas hotel is a fairly new hotel-I've never been there but try it and let me know how it goes. The Farinas are known for beautiful things. There is a delicious noodle house called Christine's Mikki - it is made of homemade noodles doust w/ deliciousness-it is the original Mikki House in Laoag - very clean, toilet is clean and has an air conditioner which is a treat! I would recommend this noodle soup restaurant to every reader of this note. Ask any tricycle driver to direct you. For anyone longing for KFC or Pizza hut or Mickey D, it is available in Laoag. My husband loves marunggay - the healthiest, most nutritive vegetable available in the region, try marunggay fruit, cooked the ilocano way. There's the white, sea salt made in Pasuquin, it is worth taking back home. There is a bakery in Pasuquin who makes the best biscochio and sweet pandesal-ask any driver northbound and they will tell you exactly where it is located. My Bahay Kubo that we visit yearly is located in Sexy Beach, fronting the ocean.I love that place - we watch a lot of DVD and fuzzy channels, go swimming before sunset in the warm tropical China Sea and watch the beautiful sunset that we are famous for - another land of the rising sun! I may rent the kubo to anyone interested - not in the summer because I was told that the well [the pH of the water is alkaline - good for the body chemistry] tends to dry out - you'll end up fetching water next door. The sand is black, the seashore has a lot of washed trees/logs/plastic bags after a storm - I usually ask my neighbor to bribe the kids to go and pick up the litter. My husband or I have never experienced the Montezuma's revenge drinking / cooking / with this water. The beach is saturated w/ beachgoers on holidays so plan ahead if you wish to rent it. I have never rented it before. If you are desperate looking for a place to stay where you have a run of the place and privacy, e-mail me. It is a 1-bdrm hut with TV, refrigertor, stove, bed, etc. There are a few points of interest in this part of the country: Sapat radar station [ I am not sure if this is classified info but my father-in-law installed some wires in that area during WWII], impressive, giant windmills in Bangui, Lighthouse in Burgos and then the white beaches in Pagudpud, caves w/ stalactites/stalagmites. There are some local wine made of duhat [a locally grown fruit], not really a good wine but it's worth trying just for the taste of it; complain later on...

Some of the captions on the pictures are inaccurate. To name a few, Palazzo de Laoag is not a very old hotel, it is a replica of an old building but just recently constructed. The picture of the city hall is actually the Provincial Capitol building of Ilocos Norte. The 2 pictures with the tower is not actually a church but it is the sinking bell tower of laoag City Cathedral.

I was born in Laoag City and i love that place. About Fort Ilocandia Hotel,the rooms smells smoke. We are allergic of smoke and others. We tried to stay there pero it STINKS. We ask for a non smoking room and they tried.This is the funny part about asking for a non smoking room,the chambermaids rush into the next door where we get the reservation and removed the ash trays and spray the room with air fresher but it still wreaked of smoke. So if your plans are to stay there beware of the smoke. Outside of the hotel is OK and the inside EXCEPT THE ROOMS. I know some of the staff there and how i wish i can stay there with my family for a while and chi chat with them.Please have SOME ROOMS THAT ARE NON SMOKING FOR THE SAKE OF THE KIDS AND WITH THOSE ALLERGIC TO SMOKE then we can call FORT ILOCANDIA HOTEL 5STAR HOTEL IN LAOAG CITY.Thank you and MABUHAY.

IThe person who posted this site was just sharing her wonderful memories of Laoag City. Any mistakes in spelling and wrong captions are to be forgiven. For those who can't take it, I suggest you subscribe to Conde Nast or Travel and Leisure. . . . Fort Ilocandia is nowhere near Four Seasons, "W", Shangrila, Fairmont etc etc...It has seen better days, no doubt about it. Just because someone said it is a 5-star hotel does not mean it is a 5-star hotel. It was the personal view of that person not the whole Ilocos Norte. We thank you for having visited us. If you plan on coming back, please check out the other hotels. There are plenty to choose from. Word of advise: Travel with an open mind, because each destination has a unique offering be it in Ilocos or any part of the world.

Sa mga nanglalait ng lugar, apparently yong lugar niyo is not to be proud of. Wala kayo identity to call your own. Meron ba kayo niyan sa inyo? nakapasyal na rin ako sa most of the so-called beautiful places in the Philippines. It turn out to be a hype, as travel magazine show showcases. Na disappoint ba ako? Hindi dahil alam kong it's not the place that makes it beautiful, it's the people. And if eople like you populates the area, then it's an ugly one. Filipino at it's worst. Crab mentality to the max.

Laoag is a peaceful place, beautiful beaches and lots of prehistoric spanish beauty spots. People there are warm and hospitable. They are friendly and very accomodating folks there and it is a small city yet progressive, clean city.

Aba mas maganda pa ho yung mga tinatawag naming Lodge o kaya Inn sa amin kaysa sa Texicano Hotel ninyo pero ni minsan hindi ho namin kinategorise na hotel ang mga yun. Exaggerated po talaga kayo!!!

What's up people of Ilocos Norte particularly Laoag City? It is understandable na dapat nating ipagmalaki ang ating lugar pero huwag naman sanang exaggerated. I mean, napaka-misleading ang sobrang pagpuri nyo sa lugar ninyo lalo na sa sinasabi nyong % Star Fort Ilocandia. We went there and our romm ay may ipis, ang kubeta ay binabaha, at yung mga appliances sa loob ay parang ginawa pa nung panahon ng hapon. Pati aircondition ay maka-luma. Pati mini-bar ay naka-padlock pa. Come on give us a break. If we can afford to pay about 6,000 pesos per night, ba't naman namin pag iinteresan pang nakawin kung anuman ang laman ng mini-bar nyo? it is embarrasing talaga. Ayusin ho natin ang pagpuri natin sa ating lugar at dapat lang na lumagay sa tama para naman hindi tayo nakakahiya.

I'm planning to go home on Oct. and I would like to include the city in my itenirary. I'm also looking for an old friend of mine whom I met in Kalinga Apayao, his name is Nestor R.Calvan and he is from Laog City.

I was born in Laoag but left shortly after I was 3 and returned over 30 years later to reconnect with the land I came from. In the US it's all work no play and in Laoag and Philippines, it's all play no work, lol. People are living and enjoying themselves despite the little means they have, which goest to show that you really can have a life with what little you have and still people are friendly and happy regardless of their circumstances. I visit Laoag and other parts of the Philippines as much as possible and when I leave, I feel a lost of identity and really miss the place, weird.

Laoag oh what a glorious and beautiful city ! Oplan Dalus written everywhere in the city. Well where I come from is no city at all. A small town in Arkansas population of about 500. I am always amazed at Filipinos and how they see us Americans , if only they knew how I grew up and in my place it so very similiar to this place , yet here in the city so much commerce and little sari sari stores around each corner, oh my gosh we had to travel 15 miles or more to get to a store, here just walk around the block. I Love it here, plan to stay here a long time. Friendly people here. I am even told that if someone tries to pickpocket me or mug me that I can yell out and start punching the thief and others will join in , as they hate those that do that here. I like that , thats the way it should be anyhow. Lots to see here for a history buff and the people are usually very friendly. I just miss the big open roads of home and the sidewalks , they need sidewalks here , the streets are where everyone has to walk, no real sidewalks to be seen, only in the main part of town. In a city of about 100,000 there should be sidewalks everywhere for safety. But then again the saying goes, only in the Philippines... Aside from a few minor inconveniences that Americans are used to on a daily basis , this place is fantastic. I see the Calesa's and fantasize that at one time this was a wonderous place , before all the buzz buzz loud buzz sounds of the tricycles everywhere. Oh how I would just love to have a day without the tricycles and just Calesa's in the streets. A Calesa driver told me once , " Its a slow ride , but its clean " Oh how nice that was to hear, and everytime I walk the streets I think of that , and wish so much these buzz saw sounding tricycles would take a day off and just let it be Calesa day . I wonderful Romantic notion of days gone by . The Calesa may be slow , but its clean and to myself, beautiful and romantic . To everyone reading this, you should come here to visit, its a place apart from the rest of the Philippines, a place very worthy of seeing and spending some time in. I Love it here !!!

ps I'd also like to suggest that you try to stay at the classy Playa Tropical Resort Hotel in Currimao. it's about 30mins away from the city towards Batac. real cool place. it's got an eternity pool facing the sea and a live band playing towards the evening. the rooms are done in native Bali inspired design and architecture of the cottages are similar to the Java hotel (more accessible) which is in Laoag City itself.

Hi Nikko! Thank you so much for recommending Balay da Blas pensionne. Check out also my new place on Rizal Street - Saramsam Ylocano Resto for traditional ilocano food and out of this world expecialties like : Poque-poque pizza, Dinuguan Pizza and Saramsam Pasta. Of course dining would not be complete without dessert. You gotta try the INKALTI or what a lot of people consider as ilocano fondue. I hope to see you all there!

I've been to Laoag City twice as delegate of City of Santa Rosa along with Mr. Mario Zantua of DepEd and Mr. Dennis Aquion of City Sports Dev't office sponsored by Hon. Arlene Arcillas -Nazareno our City Mayor, for Grassroot Coachers accreditation System Tier 1 and 2 of Phil. Sports Commission in cooperation of Gov. Michael Keon. I regret not visiting the beautiful places there because I stayed completely for the seminars only thats is why I have the feeling of going back there. I miss the empanada, the only empanada as big as half of a plate, and the people, they are simple and nice, the policemen,no bulgy bellies and so fit that even they are at their 50's, still ready to attend to the visitors protection thanks to the people of Laoag Capitol where we had our scholarship seminars. Thanks also for the accomudation of Gov. Micheal Keon for remdering the rooms of Laoag City Sports Complex during our stay there.My roots are from Ilocos too. I hope to be there again sometime soon not for work this time but for the beautiful places i missed to see. Great website, more power.

best places to stay: JAVA HOTEL - the best value for money accomodations in Laoag City. Clean rooms, friendly and accomodating staff. Has its own bar and restaurant. And if your car needs servicing or gas, there's one right in front of the hotel. (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) BALAY DA BLAS - the best pension house for those who wish to get that "home away from home" feeling... they also have their own cafe so you won't have to worry about food. Good bed and breakfast place. (HIGHLY RECOMMENDED) FORT ILOCANDIA - if you'e a foreign tourist who wants to be pampered, stay here. They love foreign tourists and you'll get pampered, especially if they think you are a weathy Taiwanese businessman... but if you'e just a local businessman or a local tourist, I suggest you stay either at Java or Balay Da Blas to get your money's worth...

For fisrt timers to the province, Fort Ilocandia would be a good place to stay. By day you can go where about and visit more of the beauty and sceneries of the sorrounding towns. Just don't forget to drop by Batac and taste there empanada. They are the original makers of the delicacy. It is more filling than the ones other town makes. Also visit our wwhite beach of Pagudpud, The Boracay of the North. The town is well preserved, virgin mountains, and several waterfalls to hike to and they are worth the walk. Visit our province will be the best way to experience our Ilocano Pride.

I've seen many places but Laoag specifically Ilocos Norte captivates me everytime I return home for a vacation. Development in the city and the province has been welcomed but most important we must remain vigilant in protecting the natural beauty of the city. Government and business leaders are making Laoag shines -- it should be that way!

This comment is in response to Catherine Pascua regarding Fort Ilocandia. We stayed at Fort Ilocandia for three days and two nights last Christmas. Our stay is very pleasant, the staff are very helpful (always willing to help). The rooms we stayed in are about above average. The hotel grounds...you just have to be there to enjoy it. We spent most of the time at the pool...the waves at the beaches at the time of our visit are very rough and windy. The hotel has a shuttle service that will pick you up at the airport and vise versa. All in all, we had a very enjoyable time at Fort Ilocandia. The breakfast buffet that was included with your stay is very good. Unfortunately, I don't eat pork and pork products (it was abundant at the buffet table). There are a lot of local fruits and bread. The "arroz caldo" is out of this world. It is very delicious. It would be safe to say that you can not go wrong by staying at Fort Ilocandia.

I was born and educated in Laoag City. I went to Zamboanga Elementary School (now Cabeza), then on to Ilocos Norte School of Arts and Trades (now INCAT), and finished my bachelor's degree at Northern Luzon Teachers College (now MMSU College of Education). Since I've known Laoag (before it became a city) to have been the largest municipality north of Manila, there has never been an event that tainted her name (Light), a source of power, wisdom, vision, inspiration, aspiration and enlightenment. I left the city in 1974, and I have been returning over and over again, only to find out that a big chunk of improvements have eluded me as I leave. Every time I go back, a bigger chunk of nostalgia haunts me. The serenity of the countryside, the beautiful smiles of dainty Laoaguenas, the smell of freshly cut rice stalks, the long stretch of rolling sand dunes, the race of calesas at Gilbert bridge, the city fiesta, the precessions during Lent, and everything that shaped my very being as Ilocano from Laoag have all trickled down memory lane. Yes, Laoag, I miss you. I will be coming back again and again. See you soon! Aloha!

i visited laoag city just last year. i didnt stay long for i had to go to another place to see a loved one. laoag city is pretty cool. the culture is still very rich though the city is still on the process of improving. i was amazed with the cleanliness and no traffic at all except when you are the heart of the city where you can find tricycles congesting and maybe, less crimes. however, when i ordered my take out dinner from chowking, i was shocked to see the reminder "BEWARE OF PICKPOCKETS" huh!!! all the while i was thinking that such habit is just present in metropolis area. well, that is still part of survival.

I am a native Laoageno, from Dibua South, graduated from INNHS, and NLTC (now MMSU College of Education) but I still have to go back to college in the United States at the University of Hawaii and National University in San Diego to earn a bachelor degree here. I left Laoag for the USA in 1974 and I visited Laoag for 3 days only in 1997. I wish my family and I stayed longer for we were able to see only the new Patapat Road in Pansian and Pasaleng leading to Claveria, Cagayan. Very beautiful sight of Pansian Beach from this new road. I'd been planning to visit Laoag for at least a week on our next trip to the Philippines to savor the good old days and really enjoy the new sceneries, visit the INNHS and NLTC and other tourist attractions. My children loved it there and really preferred to stay in Laoag than the hot, dirty air and traffic laden Metro Manila. I keep abreast of Laoag City news by reading the online copy of Ilocos Times. I must say that I am really proud to be from Laoag and I always tell our friends here in New Jersey, USA to include Laoag as one of their itineraries when they visit the Philippines. Most of them did and their feedbacks were all positive.

I DECLARE LAOAG CITY IS BEATIFUL AND CLEAN, THE PEOPLE ARE VERY HOSPITABLE,FRESH VEGIES,FRUITS,FISH AND AMONG OTHER THINGS. THE ONLY THING IS THE CITY NEEDS MORE ROOM FOR DRIVING , AND WATER DRAINAGE SYSTEM.

Well though I'm a Sarrateneous,Laoag City has a special place within my heart... Laoag City- a part of Ilocos Norte province center. A place of Ilocandias' beautiful spots and scenarios.Besides, it's a clean and peaceful place.... and I missed Laoag City.

I miss Laoag City So Much! I went to Holy Spirit Academy for my elementary years. I would love to visit the Saint William's Cathedral, the sinking bell tower, the wet market, Fort Ilocandia and the of course, Palazzo De Laoag (remember Club 819?)Anyway, much love to my motherland.

Fo "sheila marie", you may be filipina from Laoang City, but can tell your not very knowledgeable about foreiners with money that can afford what they want traveling throughout the Phils! (Just because it cost too much does not make it nice). Old musky and twin beds, no queen or matrimonial beds, no decent aircons, no matter that we will all agree, the friendliest people in the world.

simple people go to simple hotels. if you only looked for a more expensive and a better one, Laoagenos could have helped you. It is so impossible that nobody told you about FORT ILOCANDIA HOTEL or NORTHVIEW HOTEL!!!! and JUST A PIECE OF ADVISE!!! CHECK THE NET FOR HOTELS BEFORE TRAVELLING. Don't blame the City for being backwards. You were in a province and NOT IN MANILA!

It's kind of sad to say but I am from Laoag City but i moved here in the US 12 years ago and I was wondering if there is a website for this city. I want to remember where i came from and someday would want to visit. Hopefully soon. Looking at some of the pictures, there is one that I remembered, the church. I think I remembered that place because my aunt got married there and I was a flower girl. Hope someone can help. And i would like to see more pictures.

I just want to correct the impression that Laoag City has no five-star hotel. We actually do! The Fort Ilocandia Resort and Casino, an all-in-one resort hotel located at Barangay 37, Calayab, Laoag City, Ilocos Norte, Philippines. The hotel, to name a few, have a great accomodation waiting for you, reasonably priced room rates, good food from its numerous restaurants, a casino, duty-free shops, spectacular sunset view from its own private beach and/or swimming pool, lush gardens, a mini zoo...guaranteed to make your stay truly memorable and unforgetable! It's only a few kilometer away from the Laoag City proper, nine kilometers away from the Gabu International Airport and nine hours away by land from Manila (a long trip but it's the highlight of your journey to the north anyway!). Please try it on your next visit!

 Hello to all my old friends and ladies of Baranguy uno. I am originally from California. I resided in Laoag off and on from 1998-2002. I sure miss it there.My friends Isa & Bobot,Lute & Hazel Morales,Cecile Felex & family. Loved the beach at fort ilocandia, Rizal park has a mini zoo and a pool were we used to hang out with friends. B-1 was my favorite place to hang out. Jenal are you still around? I plan to return put up a internet cafe,Dvd store maybe a night club later on.Buy a home and retire. Not sure if I'll do that in laoag though. I wonder aside from the Mcdonalds is there any other American fast food chains put up in Laoag since 2002? What other changes?

A wonderful place to visit! Always wanting to see more! The people, clean environment, simple life-style, and a lot more, that would make you crave for another chance to experience the wonder it offers to the people.. Would definitely go back to this place, and would even retire here over the United States of America..It's a different feeling!! It's my HOME!!

The PICS LOOK GOOD! I'm sure there are other nice hotels in the city. Parklane Hotel must be new. Haven't heard that name when I was in Laoag.I saw Tiffany Hotel along Gen. Segundo Ave. That hotel looks interesting at the front. Doesn't look like much parking space at the front though.However, there are quite a few choices of hotel in this city. Not expect fancy ones. Or else you should have checked out Fort Ilocandia for fancy rooms, right?I know pretty much about the city. I've worked there from 1991-1995 @ Mister Donut - right at the corner of Rizal and Gen. Segundo Ave Streets. Yes, this city has progressed a lot since I've left. I love Laoag City. Hoping to retire there.

The only nice hotel in Laoag???? This is not true. There are lots of hotels in Laoag. Fort, Java, Texicano, Aurelieo's Mansion, Isabel etc etc. It may sound self serving but i have a 7-room pensionne called Balay da Blas Pension House. Very private with kitchen and private bath. Check it out.
