Ultimate San Isidro Festival and Viaje del Sol Culinary Tour

Laguna/ Quezon Province and the San Isidro Labrador Festival. It’s fiesta time in this month of May and what better way to drink, eat and be merry as we head south to explore charming Quezon province. It’s the best time of the year as we join in the revelry and celebrate feast of San Isidro de Labrador!

Ultimate Culinary Tour of Pagudpud and Vigan

In Ilocos, nature and history is intertwined but at Ultimate Philippines, we think this is combo best savored with bagnet and beer so we’re exploring this provincial belle – our style. Let’s journey onto the Northern plains and take a time-warp through the colonial city of Vigan. We’ll walk through cobbles, munching our way through the town’s traditional street fare, from yummy empanadas to tasty longganisas.. More historical bites as we take a peek at the life of ex-strongman Ferdinand Marcos in the town of Batac and admire two masterpieces of Ilocos’ unique ‘earthquake baroque’ architecture- Paoay and Santa Maria Church.
