|Hello Laoag City!|
After breakfast, we started the tour with the Sinking Bell Tower which was located at the Plaza near St. William's Cathedral.

Marcos Museum and Mausoleum - Here we can have the information about the life, romance and death of our late President Ferdinand Marcos. He is still lying there (picture taking forbid) for 20years or so. His body is somewhat similar to the ones in wax museums. We all know who he was and what he did to our country from our history class. I know I haven't experience the merciless (as they say) martial law. But all I can say is, during his tenure, he and his first lady Imelda did great things for our country. Power has it's pros and cons. I'm no political analyst but in today's democracy, what have we got? Not all but most are Crocs or Lacoste government officials. And it's really awful to see the tax in my payslip and can't see any improvements. It's election again this coming May2013, Filipino people deserve the best. Lets vote for the lesser evil who have heart for the people, not for their own pockets.

Malacañang of the North / Paoay Lake - The beautiful and lavish house of the the Marcos Family. Very huge like the Syquia Mansion in Vigan. Traditional and modern style combined, overlooking the unspoiled Paoay Lake.

Paoay Church - MJ told me that this was the church in the ten peso bill. I could not verify then but now I know, it's not. Hehe, It's Barasoain Church in Bulacan.
Museo Ilocos Norte - Here we can see old furnitures and agricultural tools they used way back when.
