Good Morning, Vigan!
Part 27 of a series
In my previous posts, I have shown to you how Vigan looks like in the afternoon and in the evening. Now, let me share to you how the place looks like during early morning.
This is how Calle Crisologo looks like at 7:06am. Empty. Deserted.
But with the emptiness, you can’t help but notice how the houses are not so well-maintained.
I know that it’s such a pain to preserve the streets and the architecture but the concerned agencies should take the step further since these heritage structures are among the main attractions of Vigan and if they fail in preserving these, the tourism moolah is going, going gone.
Aside from the tourism moolah though, it would be wonderful if the future generations still have something to give them an idea of the Philippines’ yesteryears.
Calle Crisologo is where you could find almost all of Vigan’s souvenir shops. But most of them open in the afternoon already.
There’s one odd thing in the photo below that I wasn’t even able to notice when I was taking the photo.
Goodness, there’s a kid sleeping on the tartanilla. Poor kid.
The Leona Florentino Monument and its environs
Girl Scouts of the Philippines
Vigan is one of the most peaceful places in the Philippines, with one of the lowest crime rates in the country. While that is already enough to assure me of our security in Vigan, I found this when I was looking up for photo opportunities.
A CCTV camera! Even most of the larger, more developed and more urban cities don’t have such facility. Kudos to Vigan!
Tongson’s Royal Bibingka. A visit to Vigan will never be complete without tasting Vigan’s famous Royal Bibingka. It’s not your usual flour-based bibingka but instead, it is made of viscous rice topped off with cheese. It’s sweet and sticky. Yum. Yum. For those planning to visit Vigan, never ever forget to taste their Royal Bibingka or you’ll miss half your life!
Plaza Burgos and its environs.
