Domestic flights leave Manila daily for Laoag City in Ilocos Norte, which is an hour and a half ride by bus or arranged vehicles to Vigan. The city can be reached from Laoag City via Farinas Transportation, Maria De Leon Bus Lines, RCJ Bus Lines, F. Franco Trans, Auto Bus, Florida Transit and Partas Bus.
The 408 km stretch from Manila to Vigan City is a comfortable eight-hour ride along the scenic Manila-Ilocos Highway. Air-conditioned Partas Bus, Dominion Bus, Aniceto Bus and Viron Transit ply the Manila-Vigan route regularly.
Mode of transport within the city is purely land base. Vehicles for public use include jeepneys, tricycles and calesas. Buses, Mini-buses and jeepneys provide transportation to places outside Metro Vigan. The Metro Vigan transport system is serviced by tricycles, which were color-coded for purposes of identifying the municipality to which they belong. The tricycle number is permanently attached on top of the side car specified by different colors; green for Vigan, red for Bantay, yellow for Caoayan, orange for San Vicente and blue for Sta. Catalina. A horse drawn vehicle, locally called "calesa" is also servicing the locality. It is an ideal transportation for sightseers particularly tourist.
Getting Around - The best way to explore Vigan is on foot; the city center is small and compact, yet full of excitement. Experience a calesa ride around Vigan at P150.00 per hour per carriage.
