Getting Around Vigan

To get to other municipalities, towns or nearby provinces, one can choose from a various mode of public transportation – buses, mini-buses or jeepneys.

Tricycle

Predominantly available around the province. For just a minimal cost, you can reach nearby destinations or even hire them further as you please. Basically, the minimum fare per passenger is PHP 8.00.

Calesa

This centuries-old horse-drawn carriage is an obviously popular icon in Ilocos Sur. Foreigners and local tourists make it a point to traverse the streets of Vigan and nearby towns through the calesa. Ride on and feel the aura of the past!

Jeepney

This is a customised army jeep which was left by the Americans during the Second World War. Resized, remodelled, and shined, this multi-purpose vehicle is can accommodate 20 to 30 passengers which take them to other municipalities and cities in Ilocos Sur. It is also a famous symbol for the Philippines, known for its artistic designs, colors and horn sounds.

Mini-bus

If you want to reach a nearby town a little bit faster than the jeepney, then take the mini-bus. Most are not air-conditioned (although there are already some which are) since various cargoes especially market goods and almost all people from all walks of life ride on them.

Rent-a-van

If you wish to drive on your own in exploring Ilocos Sur, there is a good list of accredited van or car owners which offer car rental services. The option of hiring a driver (probably the vehicle owner at that) is also available. Please inquire at the Ilocos Sur Tourism Information Center for more details. Looking for Vigan tour packages can be one of the best ways to get away on the cheap — if you know the right tricks.
