Birth place of President Ferdinand Marcos

Batac, which is about 15km from Laoag, can be reached by any south-bound bus from Laoag or north-bound bus to Laoag. It is a small town, the home ground of the late President Ferdinand Marcos. Many would have skipped this place unless they are on their way to Laoag ... and that was what we did..
