Gangnam Style Invades the Laoag Sand Dunes

Ilocos Sandboarding Gangnam Style

Exchange students from Korea are in Ilocos via the International Student Exchange Program. Some Gangnam moves… the horse trot on the desert of La Paz. They had the ultimate off-roading and sandboarding experience with the LEAD Movement. The kids had so much fun, they wouldn’t want to leave.

Welcome to Laoag, Korean friends! Awesome 강남스타일!
