|The pathways of Kaangrian Falls|
One of the pitfalls of having a diversity of things to offer the tourist is the lack of funding to promote each and every attraction, not to mention the confusion these can cause to the communication. Take Ilocos for instance. Say Ilocos and Calle Crisologo in Vigan, Ilocos Sur comes to most people's minds. But truth be told, Ilocos is so much more than a strip of old houses on a cobblestone street. Much much more. In Ilocos Norte alone, there are wonderful stopovers worth more than a cursory glance.

Venture to the numerous falls. Explore the otherworldly Kapurpurawan rock formation (but please, refrain from scaling the increasingly fragile rocks). Survey the lowlands from the vantage point of the Bojeador lighthouse. Wonder at and wander among the exquisite colonial churches (the one in Paoay is a sunset must-visit). Gape at the windmills at Bangui. And since the province rests on the western part of northern Luzon, it's but a must to catch a sunset or two near the coasts. The compass points to the north and at times, following the needle is a good way to get started on your own northern exposure.
