I have been to Vigan on a field trip when I was in college. We were somewhat required to join the trip, in which I am most grateful joining. Anyway, we have visited a lot of old churches, houses of different people in Philippine history, and some museums. We also had the chance to visit Malacañang of the north, wherein we saw the remains of the late President Marcos (or a wax model of the late president - I really don't know. Overall, although we were supposed to assess the architectural designs and patterns of these stuctures, I enjoyed the trip. I learned a lot about the history of my country. We went to the Ilocos market and I bought some bagnet - A vigan specialty of somewhat fried meat. It's hard to explain, but it's really yummy. We had a side trip to Baguio City on our way home. I want to visit Vigan again some time soon.
