Ilocos is synonymous with windmills.
When someone uttered the word “Ilocos Norte” one of the first things that comes to a Filipino mind is windmill.
The Bangui Wind Mills located in Bangui bay were built by NorthWind Power Development Corporation to reduce the emission of harmful greenhouse gases (GHGs) that cause global warming and also to accelerate the rural electrification of the government but it turned out to be the most famous landmark and tourist spot of Ilocos Norte.
How to Get There
Bangui is located further up north of Ilocos Norte along the Laoag-Cagayan national highway. You will see directional markers roughly 5-10 minutes from the municipality of Burgos. You can simply follow the markers or ask around to reach the place. Travel time from Laoag is about one and a half hour.
The easiest and most advisable way is to rent a tricycle to tour you around. the rate is usually Php300 per tricycle for several 3-5 tourist spots.
