Where to Stay: List of the Best Vigan City Hotels
(Vigan City, Philippines) Vigan, the capital city of the province of Ilocos Sur, is one of a kind. Its well preserved Belgian block roads, Spanish colonial era houses, and relaxed atmosphere makes it a unique destination in the Philippines. Because of this, it has been declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site and is also listed as one of the New7Wonders Cities in the World in 2015. In this post, we gathered a list of the best hotels in Vigan, Ilocos Sur.
Why You Should Visit Vigan
This city is one with a rich colonial heritage. Before the Spanish arrived in the upper western coast of Luzon, the population of Vigan was made predominantly of Chinese merchants. After the Spanish came, the two cultures mixed.
For one reason or another, the buildings and way of life in the city remain unchanged. The streets are picturesque, kalesas still abound (although they are largely used for tourists now instead of practical transportation), and buildings hundreds of years old are kept intact. Walking its streets will feel like a walk down memory lane.
