For a quick weekend getaway from Manila, La Union is a good choice for you’re into surfing. This laid-back coastal town in the Ilocos region is easily accessible from Manila, has a wide range of accommodations to fit any budget and lots of restaurants to choose from for all your food trip needs. Most tourists come to La Union to enjoy the beach and the waves, however, that’s not the only thing you can do there. For first-timers planning a trip to La Union. As your local travel guide in the Philippines here are a few main reasons why you’ll love La union.
1. The food
La Union is a great place to eat. I do think that after surfing, eating is the next best thing to do here. No matter your tastes or budget, you will never go hungry. Lunch is always Sinanglaw. You can find it in any resto or carinderia but it is a hit or miss thing.
2. Hike your way to its natural wonders
More than its surfing culture, La Union also boasts other impressive natural wonders. Going on a day trip to Tangadan Falls is one activity for the adventurous people who always want something extra.
3. Brave a cliff dive
If you need some time off from the hike and want to satisfy a venturesome craving, you can even go on cliff diving.
4. Visit a sea goddess
Pay a visit to the Ma-Cho, the powerful Queen of Heavens and the protector of the sea, and find inner peace at the Ma-Cho Temple located in the heart of San Fernando City.
5. Experience fruit picking
Not only this activity is healthy, but it’s also fun way to keep you active. And yes, they grow grapes in La Union.
