The Ultimate Travel Guide to Laoag City

Table of Contents

( Laoag City , Philippines) The City of Laoag is the capital of the province of Ilocos Norte. It’s in the west-central part of the province bordered by the South China Sea. Its fertile soil makes the province a prime location for agriculture. Being a part of Ilocos Norte, it’s included in the programs by the national government directed at the development of tourism and other economic projects.

History says that even before the Spaniards came, the City of Laoag along with the other parts of Ilocos Norte and the provinces of Ilocos Sur, Abra, and La Union is known for its gold mines that traders from China and Japan would go there to have their beads, ceramic and silk exchanged for gold.

The Spanish colonization era paved way for the construction of churches and bell towers. Their attempt to fully colonize the region wasn’t as successful as they wished because the Ilocanos fought them. Due to these incidents, the Dingras (1589) and Pedro Almasan revolt happened (1660). Many rebellions continued to happen in the province to fight for freedom.

How to buy Taylor Swift tickets: Eras Tour dates and prices compared

When you buy through our links, Business Insider may earn an affiliate commission. Learn more

Taylor Swift's reign continues as she ramps up for the next leg of The Eras Tour. The singer-songwriter will kick off the European portion of her world tour in Paris in May, which will continue throughout the summer. From there, she'll return to North America to tour Canada and a few remaining US cities in the fall. If you're hoping to attend, we've compiled all of the details of The Eras Tour, including how to get Taylor Swift tour tickets.

Swift's Eras Tour has taken the world by storm since March 2023. The three-plus-hour tour features hits from each of Swift's album eras, from "Lover" to her recent Grammy Award-winning "Midnights." Each show also features surprise songs and occasional guests, so fans never quite know what they're in for. Swift will release her latest album, "The Tortured Poets Department," in April, but it's unknown if any of those songs will make their way to the tour setlist.

Getting tickets has become its own battle and many fans have waited hours in the Ticketmaster queue to hopefully snag some seats, if they could get a presale ticket code in the first place. While Swift continues to extend the tour, including new US dates, tickets remain hard to come by.

Below, we've put together a guide on everything to know about The Eras Tour, including the tour schedule, ticket purchasing details, resale ticket prices, and the concert film streaming options . You can also peruse resale vendors like StubHub and Vivid Seats at your leisure.

Taylor Swift international tour dates

The Eras Tour international dates resume on May 9 in Paris. The European tour will run until August 20 in London. UK prices are listed in pounds, and start times vary from city to city. US dates start in October and can be found under the following table.

Taylor Swift North American tour dates

The Eras tour will return to the US on October 18 in Miami. In addition to the Miami shows, Swift will perform multiple dates in New Orleans and Indianapolis. On November 14, Swift will head to Canada for several shows in Toronto and Vancouver. All North American shows start at 7 p.m. local time.

How to buy tickets for Taylor Swift's 2024 tour

Original standard tickets for Taylor Swift's 2024 sold out long ago for both international and domestic dates. All US tickets and many international tickets were sold through Ticketmaster , although select international locations used different services. 

Tickets for most dates are available on resale websites like StubHub and Vivid Seats . These are generally higher-priced than the originals, which are no longer available. Keep in mind that some countries have rules regarding reselling tickets.

How much are Taylor Swift tickets?

Ticket prices vary by date and location. International resale tickets tend to be a bit cheaper than US resale tickets. It's worth noting that some of the cheapest tickets have restricted views.

StubHub's cheapest European tickets range from $392 (Madrid, Spain, on May 29) to £978 (London, United Kingdom, on June 22). The latter is around $1,248 in USD. The lowest prices for most shows are around $450 to $1,000. On Vivid Seats , the cheapest tickets for these dates go for $549 and $683, respectively. 

When it comes to North American shows, the cheapest StubHub tickets range from $1,045 (Vancouver, Canada, on December 8) to $2,081 (Miami, Florida, on October 19). Most of the cheapest tickets are priced between $1,200 and $1,800. On Vivid Seats, the cheapest Taylor Swift tickets on these dates start at $1,133 and $2,212, respectively. The two resale vendors generally have similarly priced offerings, but this varies from show to show.

Who is opening for Taylor Swift's tour?

Taylor Swift has a variety of opening acts, from up-and-coming singers to established groups. Opening acts vary by date. For the European leg of the tour, Paramore will open for Swift. In the US and Canada, Gracie Abrams will be the opening act. 

Will Taylor Swift add more dates to the Eras Tour?

Taylor Swift already added additional stops to her tour due to popular demand, including her US tour dates this fall. She also added additional dates to some of her European city stops, including bonus performances in France and the United Kingdom, among other locations. It's unknown whether Swift will end up adding even more tour dates, but by the end of the upcoming US leg she will have been touring for almost two years, so fans shouldn't be surprised if she takes a break. 

Where can I stream The Eras Tour concert film?

If you'd rather watch The Eras Tour from home, you could always stream it on Disney+. Check out everything you need to know about streaming The Eras Tour concert film in our guide .

Paoay Church also known as San Agustin Church in Ilocos Norte

It is built in the usual earthquake baroque style, characterized by its wide base and massive flying buttresses flanking its sides. 

Like most old churches in the country, the exterior walls of Paoay Church are made with large coral stones and bricks. 

The church’s facade is also reminiscent of Javanese architecture bears a striking similarity to the Borobudur temple in Indonesia.

  • Book a Sola Hotel Ilocos Norte tour package

Construction of the church began in 1704 and was finished 90 years later. Masses are heard in Ilocano, English, and Tagalog.

In addition, Paoay Church’s three-story bell tower, which is detached from the main church, played an important part at certain points in Philippine history.

It served as an observation post for the Katipuneros against the Spaniards in the 1800s, and then again by Filipino guerillas against the Japanese during World War II. It's a good addition to pigrimage tours in the Philippines.

Bangui Windmills in Pagudpud, Ilocos Norte

Standing tall over the black sand beach, the windmills make up the first wind farm in the country and generate enough electricity to support 40% of the power requirements of Ilocos Norte.

You can clearly see the windmills on the road leading to the bay. There’s little to no signs to tell you where to turn, though, so it’s best to book a day tour in Ilocos so you don’t miss the turn going down the beach.

There is no entrance fee to the Bangui Windmills. There are a few souvenir stalls in the area, so you might want to consider getting a little wooden replica of a wind turbine as a souvenir. 

There are also a few establishments dotting the 9km stretch of the wind farm, where you can sit and chill with a bottle of cold beer while looking out into the West Philippine Sea.

People during atv ride in Paoay Sand Dunes

The sand dunes of La Paz and Paoay, the natural coastal desert shaped by sea and wind, are located along the coast near Laoag City. 

Its rolling and sometimes steep slopes make it a perfect place for a heart-pumping 4x4 ride and sandboarding.

It’s one of the top ATV tours in the Philippines. The best time to visit the sand dunes is in the afternoon so that you can avoid the worst of the sun's rays and be able to ride your 4x4 into the sunset.

Kapurpurawan Rock Formation in Laoag, Ilocos Norte

Many tourists go to Laoag for the sand dunes, or do a  Pagudpud tour  to swim in its beaches. You can also book a Laoag and Pagudpud day tour if you want to explore both destinations. In the nearby town of Burgos, a hidden gem is waiting to be discovered: the Kapurpurawan Rock Formation.

It is a natural formation that juts out of the rock along the beach. Its name was derived from the Ilocano word “puraw” meaning “white.”

The rock formation is known for its creamy white rock surface sculpted and shaped by the relentless pounding waves.

The rock formation is about 3km away from the drop-off point along the main highway. From the drop-off point, you need to go down a flight of stairs and trek towards the beach to reach the rock formation.

5. Walk the Halls of Malacañang of the North

It’s a popular tourist spot included in tour packages such as a day trip in Laoag and Vigan .

Sinking Bell Tower in Laoag, Ilocos Norte

Since its construction, the bell tower has been sinking at a rate of about 1 inch per year. But despite its slow descent into the underground (literally), the bell tower still rings its bell every Sunday for mass. 

Paoay Lake in Ilocos Norte

One of the largest natural lakes in the province of Ilocos Norte, Paoay Lake draws visitors not just because it’s right beside the Malacañang of the North, but because of its serene and calm beauty. 

The local legend says that the lake used to be the site of a barangay called San Juan de Sahagun, which sank after an earthquake and eventually submerged the village.

Today, Paoay Lake is a feeding stop for migratory birds, and you can go birdwatching near its banks. It’s a tourist attraction often included in 

Try to spot the Philippine duck, great egret, great cormorant, and more when you look towards the lake from your vantage point at Malacañang of the North.

La Preciosa's famous Carrot Cake

The Ilocos Region is home to a unique and delicious cuisine shaped by Asian and European influences, as well as locally available produce and you can taste the rich and diverse Ilocano cuisine in many of the restaurants in Laoag.

While in Ilocos, you have to try poqui-poqui, a traditional Ilocano vegetable dish made with roasted eggplants, tomatoes, and eggs. Try other dishes too, such as chicken ala pepian aka chicken kare-kare Ilocano style.

Make sure you don’t miss out on La Preciosa’s moist and fluffy carrot cake topped with white icing and sweetened shredded carrots, considered by locals and visitors as one of the best carrot cakes in town.

An old Tabacalera warehouse found a new lease of life as the Museo Ilocos Norte, which showcases the cultural heritage of the Ilocos Region. 

It houses a large collection of Ilocano, Igorot, and Itneg traditional clothing and artifacts, as well as exhibits telling the stories of the region’s Spanish-era churches.

If you’re lucky, you might be able to catch special performances and view exhibits from local artists.

The museum is open from Monday to Saturday from 9:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M., and on Sundays from 10:00 A.M. to 5:00 P.M.

Laoag Church, also known as St. William’s Cathedral, is the current seat of the Roman Catholic Diocese of Ilocos Norte. It was first built out of wood and thatch in the 1500s.

Over the years, the church has evolved to its current Italian Renaissance architecture design. Masses are held in Ilocano, English, and Tagalog. It’s also a part of a day tour in Ilocos .

Despite its name, the Rizal Amusement Park isn’t really an amusement park, at least not in the conventional sense. Instead of circus rides and game booths, this park is instead a huge garden filled with lush greens.

If you’re looking for a place to relax, have an afternoon picnic under the trees, and people-watch, this is the place for you.

 Local restaurants and food stalls surround the park, should you want to grab a snack before settling into one of the park benches.

The Batac Museum, also known as the Marcos Museum and Mausoleum, is dedicated to the late President Ferdinand Marcos.

View various pieces of memorabilia of the former president that are on display inside the museum. The museum also served as the old resting place of the former president.

There is no entrance fee to the museum, but donations are welcome. The museum is open daily from 8:00 A.M. to 6:00 P.M.

La Paz Sand Dunes in Laoag

Laoag is a city of contrasts. It is a small, compact city, yet it’s bursting with one lovely attraction after another. 

It is the center of business and politics of Ilocos Norte province, yet it boasts of a traditional small-town charm that will lure in visitors escaping the hectic city life. It is also where wonders of nature exist side-by-side with man-made marvels.

A 3- to 4-day visit to Laoag City will rekindle your love for the simplest of things, satisfy your curiosity for both the old and the new, tickle your taste buds, and ignite your adventurous spirit.
