Isabela

Why should we go to Isabela?

Isabela province is often forgotten by tourists, primarily because people often turn to white sand beaches in the Ilocos or the highlands of Mountain Province. But if one takes time to dig beneath the province’s surface, you will uncover the town’s rich and vibrant past, colorful festival, beautiful people, and gorgeous attractions that make up its northern charm.

You may have to accept 10 hours of driving or fly from Manila to get here, but you will definitely not regret after the wonderful experience here. The fresh green landscape, corn fields and herds on the side of the highway will be memorable images for you.
