This DIY trip was planned to celebrate our 4th year anniversary as a couple. We jot down every peso spent and all activities we did from departure on October 26 until arrival on October 29 in Cubao. We also chose to leave in the evening so that we can start walking around Vigan first thing in the morning.

Day 1: October 26

6:00PM   Left home in Pasig.
7:10PM    Arrived at Save More Cubao
7:30PM   Arrived at Partas Cubao Bus Station
8:10PM   Departure in Cubao
11:30PM First bus stop somewhere in Tarlac
Since we arrived earlier than expected, we had to wait at the bus station for the Sun to come out. We used that time Google-ing must-see, must-do and must-eat of Vigan.

Day 2: October 27

2:45AM   Arrival at Partas Vigan Bus Station
4:30AM  We started walking going to Calle Crisologo
5:30AM  We had our breakfast in a small eatery in front of McDonald’s near the church.
6:30AM  We started roaming around in a tricycle looking for a place to stay in.
7:30AM  Toured around Vigan City.
12:30PM Lunch at Hidden Garden.
1:30PM   Went back to the hotel and slept for 6 hours.
7:30PM  Walked around the heart of Vigan looking for home cooked meals.
8:30PM  Wandered at Calle Crisologo with all the awesome lights switched on.
9:30PM  Went back to the hotel to prepare for our early departure.
Day 3: October 28

We planned to leave at 6:30AM so we can catch the first bus trip from Vigan to Laoag but as expected, we overslept. Paul still had to report for work the night before leaving Manila so the short travel time to Vigan is not enough for him to catch some sleep. That’s the good side of having a DIY trip, we get to go to places we want and leave when we want to. We manage our time so we get to have enough sleep and we budget our money so we can maximize our trip.

8:00AM   Woke up.
9:00AM   Checked out at the hotel.
9:30AM   Had breakfast in a small eatery at Plaza Burgos
