"Holland of the Philippines"

Bangui is a small town at the Northwest tip of Ilocos Norte, about 1 1/2 hours away from Laoag City. At the Bangui Bay, winds coming mostly from the South China Sea are swept towards the land. To make full use of the potential benefit of these winds, wind turbines were installed along the shore facing the sea. These giant windmills put Bangui on the tourist map as more and more people knew about the beautiful sight of the Bangui Windmill Farm. Some call it simply the Bangui Wind Farm; some have refer to it as "Holland of the Philippines".

The first time we saw the Bangui Windmill Farm was in 2008 when we joined the Northern Exposure Tour. That time, we saw the windmills only from afar, specifically from the Bangui View Deck and also from Saud Beach in Pagudpud.

Bangui, Lovelier The 2nd Time Around

The second time we went to Bangui, we went to the very site of the Bangui Windmills at Pebble Beach in Baruyen, Bangui. We went very early in the morning for a sunrise photo shoot. Coming from Pagudpud, we were all anxious as we rode our van, afraid that we might not catch the break of dawn as the colors were already out in the sky. Luckily, we reached the place in time to catch wonderful "color show" of sunrise

A Place Worth Returning To

It seems I will never tire of returning to Bangui, specifically the Windmill Farm. There are so many things else I would like to do, many nooks and crannies I would like to explore. It would be a joy being there again.
