La Union Tour Day 2: Photo Diary

Hi folks!
Here's the second day of our La Union Tour!

It wasn't as exciting as our first day, but hey, I still had a nice time. Here's a quick photo diary:

Where we stayed the night- Yang House. It's just a ~5-minute walk to the beach.

Here's the small lobby going to the dining area. I was not able to take a picture of our room, but trust me it's pretty decent. 😉

Our first stop for the day: Ma-Cho Temple

Ma-Cho Temple is a Taoist temple constructed in September 11, 1975. It is located in San Fernando city, facing the China Sea.

After the Ma-Cho Temple, we had a quick lunch at Jollibee. Haha! I know, refreshing eh? Then we went to Pindangan Ruins.

Located at Brgy. San Vicente, San Fernando City, Pindangan Ruins was a church built by Spanish friars on 1764. However, due to numerous raids by Japanese, Chinese and Moro pirates, the church was relocated to Brgy. Tanqui then to Brgy. Cabaroan.

The Ruins is now under the care of the Carmelite Sisters.

Next stop: Thunderbird at Poro Point

This Mediterranean-inspired resort-town is also located in San Fernando City. With its white-washed building and cobalt blue domes and accents, one would definitely have the Greece feels.

Thunderbird is overlooking the West Philippine Sea.

The place is still undergoing development, but even so it still looks beautiful. Here's their official website: Thunderbird Resorts and Casinos- Poro Point.

Just a few minutes away from Thunderbird is the Poro Point lighthouse.

After a quick trip to the light house, we also dropped by Halo-halo de Iloko. The place was jam-packed so we had our halo-halo to go.

Last stop: Manguerra Grapes Farm

I don't really remember how much one kilo is. Lol But I think it's around Php 200? I also bought their red wine. Two small bottles or one big bottle for Php 150. It tastes good folks. 😉


After the farm, we headed back to Manila!

It was a fun two-day tour with my workmates! I hope to visit La Union again some time in the future to enjoy the beach!


Have a nice day folks!
