Paint me a rainbow in Adams


The sun endearingly lit up our Sunday roadtrip to the bucolic little town named Adams nestled in the northern end of the Cordillera Mountain Range. Yes, with a sigh of relief, there’s still such a sylvan habitat in Ilocos, and my homies immersed in the quiet elegance of nature. Peace on earth!

  1. I am amazed and always impressed how you are able to highlight the best out of what otherwise would be a sleepy boring town to some. Your province is very lucky to have you as their ambassador and best marketer.

  2. I agree with bebs1. Ilocos Norte is lucky to have you as an ambassador and marketer of the province. I have a list of musts – places to visit and things to do. Majority was from your site.

    By the way, do you know the exact dates of things going on during Fiesta. I would like to plan my stay around the festivities.

    • thanks to you both! humbled. there’s a calendar of activities the date of some activities may change. i’ll try to post early, as soon as the City Hall releases the calendar. thanks, again, Ana!

    • you have to go on a off-toad or 4×4 vehicle. turn right after Panzzian Beach and Mountain Resort or commute and take the public transport (motorcycle) by the Pancian-Adams junction. There are 4 homestays in Adams.

    • of course! just 20 mins away from the Pancian, Pagudpud-Adams junction. the ride will be rough, but worth it.
