Laoag has often been described as a place locked in time but this has been said in a good way. Despite the fact that Laoag has wide highways which is a sign of modern day improvement, there remain beautiful antiquated towns and roads made out of cobblestone that transport us back in history. When planning a trip to Laoag, it’s a good idea to think about the Laoag hotel that we’re going to stay at because the trip is going to be busy and adventure-filled.
