Enter Sandman

3rd day of November 2017. The 4x4 trucks carry hundreds of thrill-seeking tourists daily. For a fair price of about PHP2500 ($50), visitors (and even locals) can now enjoy the awe-inspiring views and slopes of the fine sands of Ilocos Norte.

Tip 1: The best time to take the tour is around the afternoon golden hours. (Less sun exposure and Ilocos Norte sunsets are the best! Watch this vlog of mine about it: https://youtu.be/uQWgCQ5huT8 )

Tip 2: This usually comes with a package of sand boarding across a steep sandy slope in the area.

Tip 3: Try to haggle. (There's no harm in trying, right?)
