The World Heritage Part of Vigan

15 01 2015

So the city of Vigan in the Philippines was named a “cultural” World Heritage site in 1999 by UNESCO which was the reason why I decided to take this trip to visit Vigan.  Unfortunately as I have experienced with some of my past visits to these World Heritage sites, this one was somewhat run down and was a Disneyland type of site.

This is the general feel of the main historic street.

These probably look better.

And here are some other points of interest.

Did I enjoy the visit?  Yes.  Maybe less for the historic part so for people expecting more from a World Heritage site, this might not be it.  But for the market, the people, and my rather adventurous travel experiences, I loved it.
