Baguio to La Union Travel

Promised to a friend that I would tour her to Baguio and La Union. 

Instead of Marcos high way that is usually the road to Baguio, we passed Naguilian Road.

One of the stop over is Ben Cab Museum. 

Not just art but saw a great nature scenery too.

And I had to show her the pine trees and fog of Camp John Hay, Baguio!

The next day, we went to warm place, Urbiztondo and Pebble Beach of La Union!

Bahay na Bato for more arts and nature.

I had to show her the famous grapes farm that is easy to spot from the highway.

My Nanay's beautiful garden and succulent plants.

Let her experienced the Ilocos food from Halo Halo de Iloko.

And go back home..

Welcome to Nami Island

Found out that Nami Island has its own republic.

There is Immigration before you can go to the island. Naminara is a micronation, and the "visa" issued by Naminara is required in order to enter Namiseom.

The island's main attraction is definitely the rows of beautiful lined trees of different kinds of pine trees, metasequoia trees, ginko trees and cherry blossom trees.

Namiseom Island was formed as a result of the construction of Cheongpyeong Dam.

It is a half moon-shaped isle, and on it is the grave of General Nami, who led a great victory against the rebels in the 13th year of the 7th king of the Joseon Dynasty, King Sejo.

The famous metasoquoia lane from Winter Sonata koreanovela.
