Some bus companies will take you straight from Manila to Pagudpud. The trip is long and you’ll be traveling about 350 miles, mor or less equal to the distance between San Francisco and Los Angeles. Ordinary buses often stops to unload passengers or pick up new ones. If you leave Manila at 7:30 p.m., expect to arrive in Pagudpud anywhere around 5 a.m. and 7 a.m. getting a Deluxe, air-conditioned bus makes things a lot more manageable — and a lot speedier because of fewer stops.

A night trip isn’t a bad idea; just fall asleep, and when you wake up, you’re there. If you must get-off in Laoag, you can continue the trip to Pagudpud by taking a mini-bus, renting a car or hiring a private vehicle. Commuter buses depart from Laoag every half hour, sometimes more or less frequently, depending on how quickly they fill up. The fare is reasonable, and the trip takes about an hour. If using this route, just take a tricycle to the Pagudpud bus station.

Flight schedules to and from Laoag, the provincial capital of Ilocos Norte, are not that easy to get. Things keep changing. Philippine Airlines formerly have connecting flights to and from Manila. Air Philippines used to fly there, too. Laoag International Airlines has or used to have operations there. There are some carriers that fly directly from Taiwan. The province has long talked about upgrading its airport to increase tourism, but so far it’s just that.
