Dubbed as the "Heritage Village of the Philippines", Vigan, the heartland of ancient Ilocos and a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is rich in mementos of the Spanish culture. It is one of the 7 New Wonder Cities of the World.
The most common and inexpensive modes of transportation in Ilocos Sur are tricycle and traditional horse-drawn carriages.
